  1. Seems like every time my husband gets a new center manager :censored2: hits the fan. This new guy wants to enforce rules that have never been a problem with him for almost 10 years he has been with UPS. Is there a handbook of rules that are universal to UPS? Dress code? Seat belt rules? Things like that.
     
  2. I think they "make them up" as they go.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Management loves to wave their tired saber and start enforcing this rule or that one. What goes one one day doesn't fly the.next. It's all part of the big Brown game.

    There is a national standard but I believe the Center Manager has some discretion on how they will be enforced. At least until the Division Manager gets involved.

    There are written standards but frequently only loosely enforced. Until someone new shows up in management and is a stickler for details.

    sailfish Having way too much fun.

    Probably smells like new manager too. Seriously though, it usually depends on what kind of mood my center manager is in at the time. When it comes to pooty tooty little rules though, there's another sup who's even more anal about everything. And he's not new either.
     
  7. I had a center manager,give me crap about moustache. Aso I trimmed it down and cut one side of it off. Went to work with a half of moustache..lol. Never another word said.

    My co- workers were cracking up.

    The problem that I see in my center is they bust balls about stupid rules...like polish your shoes. Meanwhile, we have a few drivers that come in wearing dirty uniforms and reek of B.O...and that's okay apparently. We had one guy, now retired who you couldn't get within 3 feet of him because he stank so bad of cigar smoke...and I'm a smoker....and I couldn't stand it.

    There's a driver that comes in every morning he smells just like a black and mild wine wood tip, kind of makes my day better.
     
  14. Uggh no
     
  15. This manager also threatened taking him off his route and putting someone else on it. He is not playing nice because my husband said he wanted to see what he was talking about in writing.

    Just some temp driver, tomorrow's his last day, he's going back to reload, doubt he will be smoking any more cigars... Lol
     
  20. He does. Just petty stuff. It is more of a "ha gotcha" moment when they think he did something wrong. Every time he can show proof of all that he has done correctly.
