    I'm hearing of previous management being "hired" for peak jobs such as coordinators and new driver trainers.
    Would you be interested in going back after missing the holidays with your family and friends for the previous 20, 30 or 40 years?

    I'd have to be pretty bored. I can see doing it out of a sense of morbid curiosity though.

    Morbid seems to fit pretty well.

    Most if the driverdriver training is just CBT's. No bad for the salary... Great hours

    You would have to shave and cut your hair just like a regular UPS employee as well.

    I have talked to a few that have come back, they are working 40 hours not 60-80 and they do not have to deal with all the day to day bs. They are totally enjoying it and making some golf/vacation money for the new year!

    Imagine your day at UPS working like a real employee..no drama. Yes I would do it.

    Must be rather lonely and loathsome in retirement to do so...

    should poll the 4th spouse, bet it's 100% approval rating ;)

    We have three manager/driver sups come back. Bumped into one a month or so ago and asked him if we was coming back and he didn't think so. Something sure changed his mind. $$$?

    If the pay was good and knowing that hours were limited, I could see doing it. However, if UPS is thinking they could get me for 20/hr and then get paid for 40 while working 60 or more won't happen. However, at best case, I have 7 more peaks minimum to deal with before it is an option.

    Have not heard of any mgmt. But several drivers who retired in the last few months are coming back. 30 an hour, 8 hours a day. Might be ok, with those hours.

    As long as I didn't have to go on road I might do it. Maybe just wander around the yard writing down trailer numbers, stuff like that.

    8 hours a day at a relaxed pace, and don't even think about sending me any messages
