>>583555735 No, I don't steal packages. I earn the stuff I have. Also, I don't intentionally mishandle stuff, but I don't baby it either. If it can't survive the way I handle it, it wont survive the center.
>>583555916 Fucking Amazon. They need to learn to use actually packing tape. They use a single piece of shitty ass paper tape. Seems almost as durable as masking tape. Can tell you how many boxes get ripped open on the truck.
>>583555974 It's getting there. >>583556076 I'm sure I deliver things a lot worse than your diapers. >>583556116 My days right now are 8:45 am to about 8:00 pm at the earliest. I worked 60 hours last week.
>>583556316 Damn, driver start time is 9:30 at my center. It's funny seeing people ask questions about handling packages. Literally no one gives a shit about your box. It's just another box of the 1000s I see everyday. People will throw, drop, step on anything you order really doesn't matter.
>>583556320 You do know what UPS is right? >>583556321 Package car driver. Drive around and deliver your dildos to you. Afaik, UPS freight is hard to get in to because they usually hire from inside. Package car drivers usually want to move up to freight because it's easier. >>583556451 Fucked if I know, probably because Fed-Ex is a bit cheaper, but UPS is better. Fed-Ex splits up their Express and Ground and contracts out ALL ground deliveries. Probably why Fed-Ex is less dependable.
>>583556731 Hey, it's keeping you in business. Didn't they already shut down a ton of USPS centers from lack of business? >>583556632 Can't remember that episode. >>583556675 Nope. Not that I care. Weed is fine in my eyes. >>583556772 Please clarify. Dump stops? >>583556787 I have climbed on boxes in the center of the car to reach others on the shelf before.
>>583556862 Also having loaded for them makes one very nice to the drivers because I know the shit hours they have to put in. Pulled up next to one last week while driving my car at about 7:45. He was probably just finishing up.
why is it in america packages get left in the open, in front of the door? So easily to steal.
Britfag here, if you are not at home, they take it back and try to deliver again the next day, or more often, they give it to a neighbour and you just get it from them. Leaving it on the floor is just dumb. I could follow a UPS truck around and just grab everything
>>583557336 Appreciate it. Same for people who have worked in fast food industry are always nice to food workers. >>583557362 I only do that in good neighborhoods. Apartments, I don't leave packages unless instructed to. Also, if it's an obvious high value item like a computer or TV, the driver has the authority to not deliver or can deliver to neighbor if available. One more thing, if you are so worried about your package, then have it sent signature required.
>>583557575 Ah, well, they used to put them all in the back, but now they are in the front for some reason, it's annoying. >>583557694 They shut down to save money for retirement funds because USPS was hemorrhaging money.
In my experience, FedEx operates faster and heavier than UPS. We always make delivery before UPS guys get there. But, because of the outsourcing to contractors, the quality of employees is much less than that of UPS.
OP, what are you getting per hour and how many hours a week? I make $17/hour and average 70 hours/week.
Also; UPS is losing business like crazy to FedEx. Job security worries?
>>583558035 Damn. I bet that pissed off a lot of drivers when they changed that. One of my guys did all midway airport (counted as multiple stops), so he had to load up all the shit on a cart and walk through the whole airport. It would suck if he had to unload all that from the front of the car.
>>583558303 I don't. >>583558392 Not sure if real or not. I know a Fedex ground driver on my route. He delivers earlier than me because he routinely has a fraction of my load. I have 250 deliveries a day, he has about 60 max. Also, if you are averaging 70 hours a week, than you are retarded. Federal HOS law says you can only be on duty and driving no more than 60 hours in a 7 day week. It's both the drivers and the employers responsibiltity that they HOS guidelines are followed.
>>583558875 Im averaging that now due to peak season. After christmas itll go back to about 55. And my load depends on the route. I do both ground AND home delivery. My ground loads are anywhere between 500-700 pieces. But he delivery i get about 100 peices for 80-90 stops. But those are all country stops, lots of driving (fucking iowa). And as for the HOS laws, your max for On-duty DRIVING is 70 hours per week. Normal line two on-duty time has no max. I know this because im also a Class A commercial licence holder. That time includes loading your truck, sorting, fueling, post trip, etc. Adds up fast.
>>583555468 anyone else uses these? i work for the hammond hub in Indiana. we easily sort 35,000 pks a day during this time of year but i HATE these new wrist scanners. fucking running windows 95 or some shit.
>>583560506 I am also a Class A holder. It's 70 hours for an 8 day week. 60 hours for a 7 day week. And the 60 hours is On-duty time period. Not just driving. You can work past the 60 hours, but you can't drive past 60 hours.
>>583560242 I was about to apply to a carrier but it said I didn't get benefits or anything. After going through that long ass online test they asked me to come in during the week to take ANOTHER test.
>>583560498 Yeah I'm a CCA too. My main office is in a middle class area so I get 2-3 trays of DPS usually. The other office I'm at frequently is rich as fuck. Last Monday I had 8 fucking trays of DPS and around 60 parcels.
>>583554707 tell us why u or drivers like you have the tendancy to steal pkgs .......................... tell u why you just slam shit on peoples porches without so much as a knock tell us why you can ignorantly deleiver to the wrg address ....aka a few streets over....just to get your route through so you can go home
my company deals with UPS everyday....and you seriously suk and for the most part are simply crooked
i used to be a twilight loader and small sort in SATX. worst and best job I've had. pay was good but Fucking my back fucked me up for life. i will always remember that dreadful place. i can't even drive by without cussing it. also UNITED POT SMOKERS. only place i ever worked where my sups and management were my drug dealers.
>>583561181 I don't steal packages. I don't slam shit down and I always ring and/or knock. I don't purposely deliver to wrong address, but some people need to get more visible house numbers. That shit is hard to see at night.
>>583558392 Doubt it. UPS Preload(primary) supervisor here. last year didn't hit over 50k pieces a day until the last 2 weeks before christmas. This year we started getting over 50k pieces/day a week before thanksgiving.
>>583561246 That was along time ago. When i did do the seasonal thing at UPS, there was no doubt i worked hard. Everyone kept telling me stories about all the people who freaked out and quit before me. And i live in a big city, there are hundreds and hundreds of packages to get out. Working there sucked, anyways. They pay you the bare minimum and part time at that.
>>583560978 Hmm..it must be different for delivery then. Because when i did OTR, that was how i ran in my truck, 70 hours plus fall back hours, if you trip plan correctly. I could go 3 weeks without a reset if i wanted, and frequently did. And i used a Qualcomm. It wont let you go into violation without getting in deep shit.
>>583561181 tell us why u or drivers like you have the tendancy to steal pkgs ..........................
they dont , they get caught they get sacked , parcels can go missing due to other reasons and after a while they simply dont matter anymore
tell u why you just slam shit on peoples porches without so much as a knock
because were running a clock here and we dont have the liberty to wait around while cunts like you have a shower , wall paper a room before answering the door , policy says sig or leave safe , if its safe were getting the fuck out of there so we can complete the route in a timely manner
tell us why you can ignorantly deleiver to the wrg address ....aka a few streets over....just to get your route through so you can go home
sleep deprivation and work load means you fuck up from time to time , its human nature , its not intentional , however be a cunt on a day to day basis we will extract revenge some way some how
my company deals with UPS everyday....and you seriously suk and for the most part are simply crooked
>>583561923 Cleveland area as in an like an hour from Cleveland lol. No, mostly nice middle-class neighborhoods. Some rich as fuck curbline. I did have a ghetto ass route a few weeks back though. Only had one tray of DPS. Shit was cash
>>583561246 sad to say im on day rate , nothing to be gained from the shit hours , cool in the summer when your bulk driving dropping 15 over 100-200 miles but it sucks cock when your hunting named propertys in the dark and cold in the middle of fuck knows where , rose cottage newton burgoland etc etc
>>583562575 You follow every driver around and confirm they don't knock? Or maybe people just aren't listening when we show up and don't hear it. And if you are so pissed, how about you not be so cheap and pay the extra $3 or so dollars for signature required.
>>583562806 Lol, I make sure the box can support me first, It's not like a climb over half pound boxes and crush them flat. Also, when they load the semi trailers, I'm sure they have a hell of a lot more than 200 pounds sitting on your box.
>>583557694 they are forced to fund retirement now for employees who have not actually been born yet. No one does this. It's another social security scam. Fuck up USPS so badly that it fails, then we "appropriate" all of USPS retirement funds into our pork barrel and piss it away, like we do.
