    I have a feeling that UPS is getting ready to fire me and to be honest I'm fine with it because I was planning on leaving during my probation anyways(I'm on day 15). But the reason I think they may fire me is because on Monday I have seven misloads, Tuesday I had 3, and yesterday I had two. Today while I was loading my truck the sup was telling me that I need to get my misloads down because I can get fired during my probation period and he told me that I can't afford another misload for the rest of the week. Just wondering what are the chances that I'll get fired? I'd still leave if it came down to it but I'd rather them fire me than leave.

    Show up everyday and you will work until you retire. Really, 7 misloads is pretty bad. 2 or 3 is normal. If UPS fired every preloader that had misloads then the Preload Manager would have to load the cars and do you think he will fire his self for misloads?

    Truck or trucks? If you mean trailer, 7 misloads is pretty bad especially if you have smart scan.

    The delivery trucks, not trailers

    And you planned on leaving during your probation period? Assuming it's 30 days, you're halfway there.

    If you were planning on quitting anyway like you said...then just quit.

    Wait, so you would rather get fired, instead of quitting, even though you plan on quitting within 3 weeks. Why?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Is there a difference between quitting and being fired when it comes time to apply for unemployment?
     
  14. No unemployment If you quit.

    If you get fired,maybe

    You dont know it all?

    IVE is disappointed.

    Google unemployment!

    I was told that getting fired is always better than to quit.

    My first day of college is on Monday, I had planned on staying but I found somewhere else that will offer full
    reimbursements.

    I would think the opposite is true. Saying, "I quit my previous job due to an education commitment" is better than saying "I got fired for doing a terrible job".
