Well I took the plunge. I started as a driver and an excellent driver indeed. Management loved me I was a scratch driver each and every day on road. After about 2 months they asked me if i was interested in management. The 5 months total as a driver were pretty enjoyable I got a good feeling working there. Being on the road for many years prior to UPS I decided to submit a letter of intent and go for the management position. Lets just say there was a pretty picture painted for me. Now prior to UPS I was in management positions and enjoyed working with all types of people and thought what an opportunity and plenty of room for growth. I then got placed in a different bldng 60 miles from my house. I have now been an On Car Sup for about 4 Years now. Now anyone who knows me would tell you that I am a hard-worker and dedicated to what I do. I feel totally insulted by what has happened and I would like to know if anyone else has had to deal with crap like this before. In the past 4 years I have been sick 3 or 4 times and I had to go out for surgery once. Now as for sick days out of the 3 or 4 times sick I only called out for one of them. I was running 104 fever and by all means should not have been working. I took 3 days off and came back to work still feeling bad but good enough to perform. Now as for my surgery typical recovery time is approx 6-8 weeks. I was back to work within 5 days. Just 3 weeks ago I was struck with a nasty stomach virus and was laid up for 2 days out of work when making the phone call I was treated like a child over the phone. Then I was told you are a supervisor not an hourly you need to be at work. So please let me understand does UPS upper management really think that we are some sort of superheros impervious to illnesses that all other human beings can contract. I then 2 weeks after being sick asked to use a Discretionary day for an unexpected emergency taking place 3 days later and was shot down. This is so stupid I really should have stayed a driver. Not like I do much of anything else other than moving missed pieces and pkgs left in the bldg. And to be honest even with my bonus at the end of the year when considering the hours worked I dont even really do much better than a diver when it comes to take home. And to add insult to injury the pension plan was changed so being I was born in 1979 I will not even be able to retire with the benefits that were promised. I really feel that i got the crap end of the stick. Call this a rant or whatever you want i would like to hear opinion form all especially other management people.
