I'm a cover driver and once the busy season is over how often will I get to drive after that? How often will I be put in the center? When does cover driving pick back up to where I can be working at least 3 days a week?
Easy solution. Show up 45 minutes before the start time and take a stroll by the computer. Ask all the nail biting, nervous nellie drivers if they want the day off. Someone will take you up on the offer
I didn’t drive mid Jan through Feb after my first peak. Didn’t drive near 40 days total that year and made over $40k even tho my rate was $18.75. 2nd/this year I didn’t drive maybe 25 days tops and my rate was $19.50 then $23 and I’m over $50k already.
Takin in OT cause I don’t want to ‘work’ my entire life.
Air driving is 4yr progression now tho so that sucks for any new hires.
Not just amazon. Orion and EDD/computer dispatching wrecked things even more. Used to be there were some routes that were nice to run because of a fat allowance. No more. We lost our sorting allowance with orion and I am sure that mapnav is going to cost us more allowance.
I have 1 or 2 days a month where I can run all my air on trace, those are pretty much the only non-suck days anymore.
