    Is there a freeze on FT management or is just an east coast thing?

    I was not aware of anyone being hired without management committee approval in the last three years.

    Good point ... most improvements to the UPS services and products have been technology related in the last ten years or more.
    Don't really need operations management to do much to implement those.

    Of course. It's the easy short term answer when there aren't any good ideas for growth.

    Other than SCS and Freight, what other parts of the operation are positioned for growth?

    My point exactly. The next logical question is why are we paying our leaders so much?

    For the same reason a dog licks his own balls. Because he can.

    A friend of mine, Bubba was at a Georgia vs Auburn football game during pre-game activities when Uga, the Georgia bulldog mascot, sat down and started to lick himself where dogs tend to lick.
    Bubba exclaimed, "I wish I could could do that!" to which a woman sitting close by remarked, "Dude, that dog'll bite you!".

    I heard the hit went out last week or the week before... Absolutely NO additional or discretionary spending, transfers, promos, or new hire. Tighten the belt on uniforms, supplies, amex cards, etc....All of that jazz. Something about not making cost & an unforeseen dip in volume/revenue in the near future... Does anyone else know anything?
