Needs higher wages, more shceduled days off for home time, and consequently with more days home - less PTO.
Route Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Henderson, CO – February 27, 2018
I don't mind working a full 14 hour work day, but one can only do that 5 days in a row to be at their 70 hour limit. My suggestion, that I still stand by, is that with 2 Route Drivers working opposite each other in a 4 days On and 4 Days Off schedule, that would make an excellent work / life balance for this field of work. At 4 days times 14 hour work shifts, that is, 56 hours per week per driver for 4 days each. One full time job is considered to be over 32 hours per week. If a driver is supposed to work 70 hours per week, they are working more than 2 full time jobs!
Very good benefits, very good management, and very good perks.
Very low home time, living out of a suitcase in a hotel, low wages for what the field of work is.
