Been working for UPS for only 2 months and am already considering quitting my job as a preloader.

    It's only been two months and I've already just had it up to here with the idiots in management. I'm already having a bit of difficulty getting along with one supervisor(who's your typical douchebag UPS supervisor). He's already threatened to fire me before peak season if I don't meet up his unrealistic work pace for unload. Not only that, he had the audacity to insult me in front of many other co-workers by singling me out with my work pace I've been loading at for the past couple of days because apparently, he thinks it's cute to do so. He also keeps holding my 90 day probation status over me, thinking that :censored2: will intimidate me even more because he's a supervisor and all.

    At first, when I started working for UPS as a preloader, I honestly didn't think it was gonna be this bad until many co-workers of mine who've been working for UPS for nearly a decade have been telling me how much they absolutely hate working here.

    What do you guys think?
    Is it worth it for me to tolerate this bull:censored2: from management any longer for one more month in order for me to pass my 90 day probationary period or am I just bettering off leaving? I can always get another job anyway where it won't treat me as :censored2:ty as my UPS supervisors have been doing to me while it won't interfere with my college schedule much.

    See that,you just spent 10 minutes of your life signing up to ask advice, another 10-15 minutes writing your novella, and how ever much time waiting for all the internet strangers to decide your fate.

    You could have just quit, ran for the door, and been half way to another state by now.

    I would try to make probation. If you are dead set on leaving then I would do that after peak so you can cash in on all the overtime you will get if you stay.

    Honesty, this behavior is not isolated to part time management. If you don't like being disrespected and laughed at, and want to pursue a career that is in line with your college education, leave before you regret it. It's just a job, and being happy where you work is important.

    1. Sounds like he has intimidated you, if your thinking of quitting because he's on you.
    2. The job probably isn't worth it, so if you want to, go ahead and quit. But don't quit because he may fire you before you probation. Continue at your pace and let him fire you, I think.

    You really have few options if any right now. Start paperwork on his butt and they'll get rid of you almost certainly. Good luck, whatever you decide.

    It don't take anyone long to realize UPS isn't all sunshine and lolliepops. I would say most everyone has that "Aw F it" moment early on in their employment. All I can say is don't let them get to you. They aren't going to fire anyone this close to peak. Its all blowing smoke out their rears. Develop a great sense of humor and do your best and they will move on to the next guy to harass. If you learn to ignore them (while at the same time make them believe you actually care) you will be around a lot longer than any douchebag PT sup will be.

    I take back what I said from my other thread. The supervisor I'm currently having a beef with is somewhat new to the unload area. Before he showed up, I was able to tolerate working here. Many co-workers have warned me that I'll start to hate my job anyway as soon as I even get past the first month. However, the Driver jobs still seem nice, after jumping for 3 seasons in a row. Still, I'd have to suffer with the preload job for several years if I ever decide I want to be come a driver.

    If you can't handle the preload you will not be able to handle driving.
