    From reading this site it seems like alot of drivers are out till retardedly late times like 8 or 9pm everynight. What is your start time?

    In my building we have half the drivers come load at 7am then the rest come in at 9am. The 7am starters are done with their routes by 5(the old guys anyway, one guy who is first in everyday is done at 4:20pm everyday, right after his last letter box at 4:15, drops Air at the building and goes home) while the rest get in at 6pm or at least before 7 then two on rural routes get in it at 7:30ish at the latest (often earlier)

    Do you guys have late pickups or what? Our outbound trailer leaves at 8 so that may be what pushes our center to get drivers in earlier.

    Also guys who work late: what size of center are you in? My center has 24-25 routes daily and around 35 FT drivers.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Start sometime between 8:30 and 9am. Finish between 5-11pm. Some days they just :censored2: you.

    Just finished eating supper on route. Still got around 40 stops left. As jumpman would say. They may be walking a little gingerly tomorrow. Lol

    I'm just wondering about the drivers that come in early to load.

    On or off the clock?

    It's a crap shoot. Problem with average is take 4 days 2 at 5 and 2 at 9. On average I got off at 7 but I didnt actually get off at 7 anydays.

    You basically have to understand ups owns you M-F and you can't plan anything.

    Most time we start at 8:30. Depends on what route I'm covering as to what time I get done. Punched out at 5:40 today. I know a couple routes that have 6oclock pick ups. Don't punch out til 7ish on those routes.

    yeah pretty much my experience. Even if I'm on a route that ussualy gets done around 5:30.....that one day you plan something will be the day you get way to much :censored2: and your out till 7:30, or having to call for someone to get your pickups while you keep delivering till 9

    840 start and I was averaging 725pm punch out until a couple weeks ago when they started hammering me with peak dispatches so now I'm on the 9.5 list.

    I normally get 2 over 9.5 a week that are between 9.5 to 10.99. The other 3 days are just below the 9.5.
