    we recently had this discussion about managers that have been fired or quit in the last 15 or 20 years at our hub.

    almost all of them have gone on to bigger and better things at other companies.

    Haven't had the same experience at all. Most management still show up at center from time to time, can't stay away. Drivers on the other hand, although most take at a minumum 1/3 to 1/2 pay cut, they look great! The job and a good, happy life isn't all about $$.

    Money cant buy happiness.

    It will get you so close that you can be fooled, though.

    Really? Every manager or sup that I've have ever known to be fired was because of dishonesty and can't get a job at Walmart past laborer.

    I'm not saying for all management because all the DM and above that I've met are sharp as a tack, but I see a pattern of college graduates who couldn't or can't find a job in their field become management at UPS. So now we are scraping the bottom of the barrel for management talent because who is going to work at UPS unless they have to?

    Where are we going to find young, qualified talented people to lead UPS in the future? The only talent UPS gets are the ones discarded from other, less profitable firms?

    was just trying to be nice and give managers hope since i read that UPS is going to start cutbacks from 20-25% over the next two years.

    20-25 % cutbacks in "non production employees" due to overlapping to 2013.

    ive met a few that say they actually have there life and sanity back now,, no mention of social status.. I really dont understand how most here think operations management is a easy job and those in it have only one agenda,, that group should put there letter in to make that easy money and fix the system

    There are 3 supes and 2 center manager from my building that have been termed in my tenure (13 years.) One center manager owns his own business, the other is a center manager for Fedex freight and the driver supes are all supes at regional trucking companies. All say they took pay cuts, but all also say they do not work near the hours they used to.

    UPS does a great job training their supes and they are in demand throughout the transportation industry.
