    I am doing something similar right now. It's 7 PM, I am 25 minutes from my terminal and taking my lunch break at a Piggly Wiggly. There are just not enough hours for me to take my lunch during my regular shift and still get everything done.

    Have you looked at Dayton Freight? That would be one of my top choices.

    when did you apply? call terminal direct and speak with the service center manager.......

    apps go to corporate through website and are forwarded to a given terminal.

    Thanks for the chuckle.
    I was second from the bottom for all of three months. The slowdown hit and the new guy moved on for more hours elsewhere.
    Back at the bottom.

    Is the outbound supervisor subject to questions from corporate brass as to why cuts were missed?

    Saw quite a few UPS team trucks pulling single pups, this week. That’s probably not good.

    I haven’t taken a lunch break in years. That just means I get home later.

    Also, that 30 minutes could make the difference in possibly having to do a pile of last minute pickups that whatever lazy retard who works that area doesn’t feel like doing.
     
    road_runner, Mike2633 and Digman943 Thank this.

    I see those all the time my self. Saw one this week for sure. Actually I see more sleeper UPS trucks pulling single pups then almost anything else they pull. It's more common my experience to see them pulling pups then to see them pulling sets.
