    From the outside looking in, there has to be an interesting reason for that bonus. Are they having a hard time getting locators to step up?

    That would be my first guess...

    Oh, and Chicagoman, trust me more sups are pulling 80hr weeks than there are sitting on the couch. I know that posting doesn't sit well, but unless you have a golden umbrella, you can't supervise from the couch for very long before it blows up in their face. Unless of course they have friends in high places & we've all seen that...

    How can locators step up - part of the requirement for the position is 2 years experience!

    Frosty, I know of several sups who work from home! Not saying that is bad. If they are working and the job gets done and they support their locators, I'm all for it! I don't think they have to go to the office necessarily to get the job done! But, to sit at home and bark at locators and gripe and complain about "production" while not really even knowing what is going on in their area, UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Although, we have no choice but to accept it or go elsewhere!) Again, time to trim the fat!

    LL,

    I agree that they are out there. I'm just saying, when I was there, I was with a group of sups that never saw the office unless we had to. We all were in our areas doing our thing. Being there, is more important with newer crews & guys with experienced crews could take more "leisure" time. I know that. I know there are bad sups that don't leave the house unless they have to.

    What I wanted to get across is I believe where I was with that company, we had very good & unsung supervisors and across the board you notices one bad sup for every five good sups. The bad ones just stand out more...

    If there is nothing more to the supervisor's position than this, why aren't more of us begging for this position?

    You're right Frosty, and may I also say that I've seen some GREAT sups in my time! Some I still stay in contact with. I'm certainly not saying they are all bad. Just that lately, I've only seen the worst! Hoping it isn't a sign of little hope. Always try to keep the glass half full! Sometimes (like today) it only seems half empty!

    There should be someone who could or would want to do the job. What if you took the job and the money and it did not work out. Step back down to your old position?

    Most of us here in Chicagoland like to work. One Sup was caught building a garge in his back yard for a couple weeks while working or answering his phone. He still working. Lets give him $10.000.00 for a good job.

    Dude,

    I'm not justifying it, merely making a point.

    Couple of things though, without blowing my "alias" if you knew my situation, you would know that the last thing I am about is kissing anyone's ass at that company, I don't work there, I have nothing to gain.

    Two, you think most of the sups in Chicago aren't locating? Last year, when I did work there, I did more tickets than 3 techs on my crew. Mainly, due to the staffing issues & newbies. If you don't think a sup is important, try running your route without him being there.

    Three, "frosty heart for locators"...what the f#&K does that even mean?

    I see you're new here. Take the time to look around, read our posts to find out where we're coming from before you spew some more bullshit like that and if you do, make sure your grammer is correct. It's much more enjoyable for the reader when the posts make sense...
