Remember when you were hired as a P@D driver, your goal in life was to snag that coveted position of the HOME DEPOT position. That slot ,that was earned from hard work, dependability, completing your route ,day after day, with positive numbers, and the determination to please every customer you deliver to without hesitation? All, in hope of one day, you are given that HOME DEPOT EXCLUSIVE route. The only thing better than that, would be a line haul slot, which comes to a driver once in a blue moon!!!! The home depot slot was a way of thanking a p@d driver for all the hard work and dedication that was displayed by that associate for the time they spent dropping and picking up freight for the terminal. Here, in West Palm Beach, the opposite is true... I have been a P@D driver for 6 years. I now am in a leadership posistion , but in the past ,I have been a wild runner, a route driver, and, on occasion, a home depot delivery specialist. Now, at the West Palm Beach terminal, all you need to do to get that home depot delivery position is to do AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE AND AS SLOW AS POSSIBLE , EVERYDAY ! Instead of trying to improve the laxidasial driver, into a competitive mind set ,they reward them with a home depot slot. Mean while, the drivers who do the most and deliver the bulk of the terminals deliveries and pick ups, are battered by dispatch about their performance. When X runs are developed, it is the slug who benefits, because instead of rewarding the hard worker with a drop and hook or a 2 stopper, it is given to the SLUG ,and the most labor intensive drop(s) are given to the hard worker who deserves a break, but is denied that break, because he has to do the work of that SLUG, because that SLUG does not want to work!!!!
