    Iggy- if you haven't even started working at UPS, how can you suggest what shoes or gloves to wear, or what the consequences are if you don't?

    What if I told you to hold your urine for the whole shift because your eyes will focus better? Would you post that on here too?

    Gloves are for girls, and people who want to keep their hands soft and safe.

    BTW what is written about shoes is what is written in the footwear guidelines

    So they told you not to wear tennis shoes and you believed them without proof? I preloaded 20 years ago and wore tennis shoes. We have 50 people on our preload now and I bet 48 of them wear tennis shoes. Do what works for you and quit giving out advice to people for a job that you have not even reported to yet.

    there is 2 pages about shoes and Loafers Tennis shoes sandals running shoes sneakers and any footware that does not provide protection or support for this job is bad. go ahead and wear tennis shoes but when they tell you on your first day to go home because you dident listen dont blame me i know what i will be wearing on my feet.

    By the way I was making a joke about the gloves thing, people take things so serious.

    Too blury, and atleast be courteous enough to flip that right for us.

    They also tell you to use the hand-to-surface method, let us know how closely you follow that.....when you actually start that is.

    UPS will let you wea r most anything you want on your feet. Once you get injury to your feet though then they will tell you it's your fault because you weren't wearing proper footwear.
