    Ok so I have been with ups for two weeks now (really a week in a half) and on my second week on Thursday I had my most misload ever 6 mind you I'm new and was only getting 1 or 2 sometimes even 0. Also other people had helpes me load my truck that day as it was my worse day yet and i was stacked out so it might not have even been me that did the misload. So come Friday I am being reamed out for my misloads etc long story short my main manager instead of just telling me to come in Monday for work tells me to call him and that he want me to ask myself if I really want to work at ups. So come Monday I call and he tells me he doesn't need me to call again tomorrow. Am I about to be fired? If not what is going on is this a normal thing for ups?

    Don't think so, but don't really know. Monday/Friday are the lighter days

    With peak season right around the corner I doubt it. Most likely volume dropped off and he is trying to scare you.

    So basically they just have me waiting till they need me? And if that's the case will they maybe put me in a different area? It sucks having to call in to find out at 2am if I'm going in. :censored2:ty part about it is I have a heckler at work that makes the job that much harder he talks crap every time I make a mistake and my supervisor sucks too

    I wouldn't think that would be the case though as black Friday is this week

    When the volume doubles next week they will need you. Unfortunately harassment and poor supervision is normal at UPS. Do you really need or want this job.

    $10/hr with no benefits and limited hours is an amazing opportunity? Maybe in some third world country.

    I get paid $11 and hour and they said if you stick with them then it becomes a great opportunity. The guy that gives me :censored2: seems like he's been there for a long time so I figure that why he's such an :censored2:.

    Don't tell him that, if he was smart he would go out today and find a better seasonal job with more pay and hours.
