As dispatchers, part of our job is to provide a service to our customers. Part of that service is being where they ask for a truck at the time, they ask for it to be there. We also pay a lot of attention to the timing of each job to best make money on each job.
When you show up even 15 minutes late. You make not only you look bad but the company as a whole look bad. And it cost us money. You also affect others. Every truck that loads behind you loses money.
I have been a supervisor for over 40 years and honestly my biggest bet peeve is tardiness. How hard is it to be where your supposed to be when you are supposed to be there. You know the day before what time you need to leave.
This is for every position. Drivers, Mechanics or office staff. You have a time to start for a reason. Please adhere to it.
