What happened. I apologized basically and you fired off whatever and that was it ? I'm sad now :(
Awww... lift that frown to a smile. Tickle, tickle..
I left because I was driving 75 miles one way to work. I would leave the house at 6 am and not get him till 8-9 pm. I was married at the time and my wife hated it. So I took a job closer to home making more money but I do wish I never would've left Estes. I would be like 7-12 in seniority right now. Oh well there's plenty of other jobs and probably better ones
It just tears me up buddy. Not sure I can live with myself now
Any grocery DCs around you?
Just supervalu and coborns
Did you apply at either or looking into them?
I have. Supervalu is hurting money wise and they never hire. I would be working weekends for like 10 years. Same with coborns. Coborns don't pay overtime, it's all straight time. Coborns is looking for a part time driver. The last full time Ad I seen was 1am- 11am Friday to Monday.
Everybody is working for weekend. Well, except in trucking.
2 weekends in almost 3 yrs at Sysco only because of a system crash both times, never at 2.5 yrs with PFG, so yall SUCK IT!!! Homie don't do weekends :)
ah, i could see the ol bean dip gettin heavy! how does the bean dip come packed? is it like a 72 count case, or do some places get big 10 pound cans of it?
I would still take 10 feet of chips any day over 5 feet of 6/10 cases. 5 feet of 6/10's=480lbs, plus wheeler. 10 feet of chips= what, 150 lbs? they are chips man, comon!
Weekends seems to be the norm in grocery, ya gotta think though, when are the grocery stores the busiest? weekends. i tried it for a few days at C&S up here in Buffalo, it doesn't seem like a bad job. goofy pay for performance system, although you end up making out better than you think you would. they work based off 4 10 hour shifts, and they have a pension. not bad once you get off the bottom of the list.
LOL it gets old no matter how heavy. A lot more trips and some miles on the old 2 wheeler :)
Us Frito guys love to hear "it's just chips"
I get a 3 day weekend every other, so I shouldn't wine too much I suppose...
A 3 day weekend?!?! I don't like you anymore..LOL! J/K Stan! Enjoy the time off, Lord knows we can use it!!!!
lol, i bet! dont feel bad, the beer and pop guys look at me with envy, with a "its just food" look!
Its nice, however, that all could be changing with the law changes coming up.
I'm sure you'll find a way.:p
I bet it's still easier pushing 10' stack of chips then bouncing up and down stairs. I'd love to do chips because of no stairs and very minimum dealing of customers. Atleast with old Dutch they don't deal much with customers. I also need a job to keep me in shape. My routes are to easy that I don't work hard enough
