    In the Brockton building we have been told a nasty rumor that a new District Manager in Tampa Fl. was fired because of a drug problem. Please tell me there is no truth to that rumor?

    What, district managers are above that? We have drivers fired for it every month. Why not managers as well?

    Can't really confirm that tale.
    Yes the part about getting caught with the drugs was true. His being canned I haven't heard .

    How many would agree that the company has a higher than average problem of drugs and alcohol abuse than other companies with the same amount of employees. How many think much of this is directly related to the "culture" of ups.

    I did see a study a few years back ranking UPS in the top 15 percentile of high stress jobs. Not too sure id agree with the drug and alcohol abusers, but hey, you never know.

    Well, if this is true I'm sure you can dig up some kind of stats somewhere.

    Would this be the same manager that was the recent topic of discussion in another thread (the one no one seemed to like; that fired people at will)?

    I doubt that UPS is any different than any other company. If I had to guess, I would say the incidence of abuse is a lot less because of UPS position or "tolerance".

    Remember that we have some where in the vicinity of 400,000 employees. I would think that we would have to mirror the make up of the general population to a major degree.

    They say what comes around goes around. I wonder what kind of support network he is going to receive?

    It can't possibly be the same person ... the manager from Brockton went as a Division Manager .. not District Manager

    I think you may have the ranks confused. District managers don't get fired bi-monthly.

    Incident in Mass. may have been a drunk driving bust, from what has been talked about.

    Yes Tie, you are partially correct. I forgot the other DM got a demotion not the boot out the door. One fired, one demoted . :)
