    A couple guesses:
    • They probably expect 4 out of every 5 preloaders they hire to quit.
    • They might have current preloaders becoming seasonal drivers for upcoming vacations.
    Why do you want to work part time at UPS?

    Preload turnover, on average, is quite a bit higher than other sorts.

    Years ago HR would show large groups of new hires just what Twilight did by walking them thru the building during our shift .
    We always counted how many were in the group , so the next night when a new worker was assigned to our area it didn't matter what their name was we just referred to them as 1 of whatever the group count was .
    Many never lasted more than a week .
