    Our station recently got two new big screen "TV's" that currently broadcast the same commercial (w/o sound thank god) 24/7. There are no controls or even a remote to shut the damm things off. Can't wait for the propaganda programing to begin. Any other stations gone live yet?

    We have had those for about a year now. It was hilarious, just after we got them, our district manager came to our station and told us FedEx wasn't making money. So then why waste money on a tv for each station that just plays propaganda on repeat?

    Ours has had them for over a year too. They don't even get turned on anymore. Lol. I heard the TV's came free with the satellite contract.

    Probably. It's pretty funny if they think that these will improve morale and compliance. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I guess we are supposed to stand there like lemmings and watch TV before getting our equipment. The only thing I like about it is that it displays the current time and date. you

    One of our TVs may or may not have been rigged to hook up a video game console and play Mario Kart. :cool-very:

    Or they figure nobody watches Frontline any more, so we'll have Uncle Mattie on 24/7. Sounds fun, eh?

    What a downright boring job. If it even exists.

    It's possible to remotely view one facility from another via the company intranet. It is feasible that anyone who knows what he is doing can tap in to the stream of any camera in any domestic DGO/AGFS facility. I don't know for sure that all cameras at all of those locations are accessible but I've never had a problem accessing the ones I wanted to access.

    Memphis can monitor any live camera at any time. They do conduct random spot checks and have the ability to access any existing recordings made by the cameras.

    Every time a ground contractor is fined for an early pickup, FedEx uses the money to buy a monitor.
