    On August 28, 1907, UPS was founded. Was this recognized at your work location today and how?

    Meeting, video, cupcakes and handing out of plaques to people with milestone years.
    One with 35 yrs, 3 with 25 yrs and 2 with 20 years.

    Oh yeah, and a video that must have been forgettable since I can't remember anything about it except there was a bus.

    We were given a fresh Krispy Kreme Donut and a bottle of water. The usual safety awards and a video I don't remember much of was shown. Good Times!

    Nothing in our center!!!!!!!!!! We all looked at each other and said "WHAT THE FUC ".
    May First and I'M out of here. This place has really taken a dump. After thirty one years I can not believe what UPS has turned into. What a shame. At one time I was proud to say I worked at UPS, I no longer can say that.

    Hot dogs, ham sandwiches, a sheet cake and muffins along with free coffee and water. This is the best celebration I have seen since I started 11 years ago. Typically they just set all the coffee prices to free on the vending machine, but who wants coffee when working in the heat?

    We had a cake, two gallons of orange juice and no cups to drink it (for 100 drivers) then add the loaders and part time sups
