    now I know we all suppose to be on time to work but I notice that they really get mad and want to wright people up if we late even if we do have another job we will still get a message or supervisors telling us be on time or they wright is up now we all know ups is a part time job and honestly can't really make a living off working part time at ups so I feel they need to cut a little slack on others who do have other jobs before coming into work.

    I guess you have two choices---either start showing up on time or quit so that someone who really wants the job can have his/her chance.

    BTW, the word that you seem to be having difficulty with is write.

    Sounds messed up but, I don't care about your other job. I care about what's going on at UPS. I'm sorry, it sucks I know. But your other job nets me no gains.

    If you were a UPS driver that had an evening job, you might have an excuse. The majority of the working world has a shift end time.

    The worker who you express that attitude to is going to not care about your reports and useless metrics either. By having that attitude you create "lazy union workers" out of hard working people. UPS has forgotten the human element.

    Some supervisors will give you a staggeted start time if you have a second job. That being said, a $10/hr job will not make ME late for my $19/hr job.
     
  16. I wish my supervisor would understand why I'm late after drinking 3 beers before I show up to drive. But he never cuts me any slack and writes me up :/

    True but most part time jobs at ups don't have a set start time or a set shift end time. Our part time start times change every week. Not saying he has an excuse it's just not that easy to find a job that works with UPS schedule. Well around here at least.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    So should the mother with 3 kids who has to wait for her husband to get home so she can use their one car to get to UPS for her shift be given "a little slack" too if she's late 3 times a week??
    FFS....everyone has their own problems. No one at UPS cares about your other job. Be on time for work or get written up. It really is THAT simple.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    And leave the kids home alone? My point is....if they cut the OP "slack", they'd have to make exceptions for anyone with a sob story....And when would the sort get done?
