It just seemed odd. The crew leader is an older Mexican guy, hard worker, honest guy as much as I can tell. But he is also lacking the drive to "motivate" his crew...aka kicking them in the ass. So it's hard to say if he is taking advantage of me or not.
One idea that we had, we are hoping that our phones will have the ability to punch in/out. Thus if I pull up, see guys standing around, they should be punched out. If not there's a problem
Now I like that idea. Do not want to be a micro, but I have found that if I am not with them the jobs do not seem to be taken care of as fast. When I see three or more trash items from different stores I know they have had just that many stops. All this has been a great help. I know it all comes down to managment and having the right people, but sometimes I do feel we are not being efficient as we could. Some of the cell phone use drives me nuts as well.
