    How do you trim RDO back on? There is no choice on my DIAD like there was before.

    They can adjust the percentage of Orion. I’ve had it done many of times. It’s almost like they flip it and it’s night and day difference.

    I don’t understand why everyone hates ORION, we get paid by the hour so it’s essentially making us more money. Once I get my air off I’m following ORION, which typically turns a 9 hour day into 11 but whatever.

    I dont like making multiple left turns against traffic on a busy highway.
    I dont like crawling over/ fighting thru a 25 piece, HIN #1100 bulk stop until 4:00 in the afternoon. Especially when ORION has me driving right past it 6 times doing other stops.
    I dont like having to bury a trampoline, 2 bunk beds, six 70 lb rolls of carpet and 5 Amazon boxes of dog food underneath fifty 48 lb. cases of wine because ORION told me to drive right by those deliveries in order to do a winery pickup at 11:00 in the morning.
    I dont like having to deliver a 275 lb trampoline out the bulkhead door because ORION wants me to wait until the end of the day to deliver a RDR bulk stop that is blocking the back door.
    The job is already hard enough. The forced stupidity of ORION makes it even harder.

    Go in the office to the PDS computer.
    Find your route, put the cursor on the green dot that says ORION and click it. Then click “OFF” and you are good to go.

    Our job is to pound nails.
    RDO is a hammer.
    ODO is a rubber spatula.
    “Adjusting the percentage” is essentially like putting a bunch of duct tape on the spatula.
    It would be a lot simpler if they quit playing games and just gave us the damn hammer.

    Your bosses are idiots.

    Our Orion plan is exactly RDO this time of year. Don't blame the tool (ODO). The boss who supplies the tool is the idiot.

    They have the ability to make ODO = RDO.

    Honestly I don't get why they split up one route three times to make new routes but then they leave another one completely intact. The result is that one person is going out with 500 pieces while the other leaves with 160. Everyone's time is wasted bailing out that one person in their loop.

    If they did that 365 days a year they might actually be on to something.

    They tried that here when it first started. We all just laughed. I always just say. The words are "or better" I ran 98% so you're welcome.
