Well as some of you know today was my first day with UPS in Richmond, California. I started my day by arriving at the employee parking lot at 10:25 and walking 8 minutes to the security gate where I was to wait untill 11:00 to be taken in. At 11:05 the HR guy came out and asked me where everyone else was? I smiled and said, Im the only one I've seen. Just as we were speaking another person rounded the bend and came into sight and we waited for her, she took her time. At 11:20 we reached the training room where we were told to wait while the HR guy went and called/looked for everyone else. In the meantime we met our training supervisor. We were talking with him till about 11:30 when 6 other people showed up with the HR guy. They were all LATE! As we were all told to be there at 11. So after introduction, people begin asking questions, and I kid you not, these questions were asked; - How long will we be here today for? Followed by: I have to leave at 2! - Why on Sunday might we have to work more? Followed by: Complaining. - Will we have a lunch/break today? 1 guy went to the bathroom 5 times in an hour. I was like literally laughing at these people. I almost felt disrespected because 3 or 4 of the 8, didn't seem like they wanted to be there at all. Our FT sup trainer left the room for about an hour to handle some interviews (Went into the adjacent room) while we watched an hour long video, to which 2 girls fell asleep halfway thru. I was amazed at some of the things I saw, and had I not known how things are I might have felt disrespected, but I know that these people won't last. I worked hard to get my job, and the first day was AWESOME! I can already tell that I like the atmosphere there. Just wanted to share my positive experience and first day! Whooo hoooo!
