I think they're in the mid 200's. Call up and see if they're still calling.

This is a copy of my orginal post as of Friday around 2:30PM... I think its on the 357 or 8 page.
I just spoke to HR and they are up to the 240's (have about 80), they need another 20 more people to make their first 100 for the July class. Depending on how many more they have to go through for this "20" they could go as high as 300 (Maybe).
240 divided by 80 is 3, 1 in 3. 20 more could mean 60 more number to go through.

I'm hoping they go real high, I'm 667. This pace they may only hit 600.

Nick, you're 271 right? Did you get called yet? I haven't (270) I think they are just taking guesses or estimates when they are giving these numbers out.

The city knows this. Every morning before you go out you are given a "350" a daily performance card. On this card is written "hours allowed 16" which of course equals 8 hours per man. It is the sanmans option to give up his breaks and work like a slave, and go dump the truck. Effectively doing the job of 2 sanmen at once. This is the argument. I know when I pull my truck in. at the end of the day, LOADED.. there will be a new guy on a night time relay shift to take it to the dump. (IE two san men having a job. me to pick up the trash and a new guy to do a relay.) If you dump... good bye relay man... good bye jobs for new guys. Its that simple.
Nice post. ...But is there ever any conflict between the two workers on the truck, maybe one wants to R&D and other wants to work like a civilized person??
