    Why do we even need CMs? You know what happens in our center when our center manager is on vacation? Nothing. LOL! If anything things run a little better.

    Our current center manager is merely a figurehead. Our one on car sup basically runs the center and the center manager gets all the credit.

    Our center manager would be the perfect poster boy for <INSERT ANY RANDOM CIGARETTE COMPANY HERE>. UPS should bill <INSERT ANY RANDOM CIGARETTE COMPANY HERE> for the advertising that takes place in the smoking area outside our center on a daily basis before and after each conference call.

    Had one good one and four bad ones since I started at ups....center manager's don't seem to last too long before getting transferred, demoted or fired. IMO

    I mean honestly....we don't need ours. He doesn't do anything but relay messages (how many routes to cut) to the dispatch sup and then sits through a couple of conference calls where he gets scolded/praised on the the previous day's numbers. And UPS pays CMs him handsomely for this? Imagine how much money the company would save if CMs were eliminated. Imagine what could be done with that extra capital.

    Our center manager is so fat we have an over/under bet on how soon he will have a heart attack.

    Our previous center manager was pretty much like that. He was pretty laid back and rarely interacted 1on1 with drivers. The senior on-car pretty much handled everything. Our current center manager is pulling guys into the office pretty much daily about performance. It's funny with on-cars and CMs change positions/assignments, switch around, quit or get fired we never hear about it and they never address us or introduce themselves. It's just here today, gone tomorrow and they seem surprised when you ask who they are when they start addressing you.

    We had two CMs' quit at the same time and start a bar a while back. Brings new meaning to this job driving you to drink.

    Wow I guess I'm lucky. I have had only one bad center manager and he didn't last but a few months.
