    My wife just handed me my 30 years of service certificate. I am so happy to know our beloved company has spared no expense in showing appreciation to a valued employee. The postage alone must have set them back a couple of bucks. It gives me the warm fuzzies to know that our dear leader in Atlanta enjoys huge bonuses while I get a piece of paper worth five cents.

    At 25 years, I was given a plaque (generic plastic) at the PCM. My name on the plaque was my nickname, not my given name, but that was okay.

    The freaking letters that spelled my name were glued on crooked!

    I pointed this out to my center manager (who was really a nice guy), and he was totally embarrassed and offered to get it replaced. I thanked him, laughed and shook his hand, and said no. Then I tossed it in the trash and we both had another laugh.

    Gotta love Parcel!

    30 years with one company is quite an accomplishment. 30 years at UPS? That's pretty effing good bro. Something that only someone who has worked there can appreciate and understand. Kudos.

    All depends on the new parts. At least 3 to 7 with good behavior.

    After 30 you can just put it in cruise control with the knowledge you have the option of retiring whenever you feel like it ( if your center has 30 and out that is).

    I will have 25 years of service next month. I expect to receive the same plaque that I received for my 20 years:



    I don't expect anything special to mark the occasion other than a handshake and thank you from my center manager.

    Please tell me your kidding. Run now! I will be leaving in 4 1/2 now. Got my 25 th in Nov. At Age 51. Not worth it for me to stay any longer. Want to walk away with my knees. UPS is not the company I want to work for anymore

    Btw I still haven't received my 25 yr plaque. Since November. Will post when it happens. Probably several months away yet. UPS cares about us all. To drop dead

    What a waste! I thought UPS stopped sending out that crap since no one cared and just threw them away.

    They do try to show they care. And have a heart. Remember when you felt that way. You do know I'm joking -----right

    I do hope that your expectations are met upstate. Because I received that very plaque in 2013 for 25 years of service. However two of my fellow coworkers who achieved 25 years early this year only received the certificate. Big disappointment.
