Good luck to the guys starting Monday. Keep us posted .

Yeah well GMANHB is right. After all you dont know who is reading it, Supervisor can be an ******* if they want to. After all they write out your evaluation sheet and if you get bad reviews they can terminate you because in HR they review everything and if someone isn't doing good and is on probation then they can be let go :S. I seen it :S.

Another thing, you dont want to go around telling too many people that your shift is 6-2 but you really work 6- to 10 and the rest of the day is yours. If this ever got out really in the public that many people knew then I sure something would be done so there isn't so much down time.

saying stuff here shouldn't really be a problem but just dont be telling everyone you know in your life lol.

Not everyone who works the truck is done by 10 on the 6-2 shift and those who run and done by 10 work very hard. They put 8 hours of work into 4 hours. Kills their bodies but they do work hard.

didn't mean that everyone is like that. I know not everyone gets done by 10. But I know when I found out some san. workers get alot of down time I was told not to go around saying that.
