    Just remember..... if you JOM hard enough, you may just get to see the sales rep take the lazy driver who works in your area out to lunch instead of you.

    Okay...so with that being said, how much OT do the city guys work? Do they exploit that 'law' to their fullest advantage, or do they keep you reasonably close to 40?

    They'll work you close to 60 hours in the south. Cheap old demon takes full advantage of the screw job they're giving city drivers.

    We dont even get paid for drop and hooks at any meet points, O.D. must be hurting for money. Shame they can't afford 3 dollars a day for their driver's that probably just sit for a hour for free waiting on their hooks.

    Spent all our money sponsoring MLB! Some things we do really well, others not so much. Over working drivers at straight pay...we do that well. Succession planning...not so much. Seeing a director retire and then contracted back to do the same job for 6 months at twice the pay because someone failed to plan...I hope someone fails to plan for my retirement (BUT then they will just from the dock)
