Today a woman from HR (I think) went up and down my boxline asking all preloaders if they wanted to be a part-time sup. Everyone said no. She said something along the lines that there was something wrong with my center if no one wanted to be a sup. I told her I didn't know about the others but I was in nursing school (last semester) and didn't have time to step up to a higher position. Right now loading is just the stress relief I need from school & clinical. I asked a few other preloaders why they said no and here is what they said: I don't want to be held accountable for the people under me (including all the misloads ~we have some loaders who if they have 5 misloads they had a great day, missed pieces etc.) I don't want to get yelled at every day for stuff I can't control. Some loaders want to become drivers and feel that staying a loader will give them a better chance. Everyone agreed that they don't want to be treated like the current sups. Everyday we see the "abuse" they are put through. If UPS really needs more part-sups they need to take better care of the ones they have. Most of ours are trying to move the hub (less stressful - according to the sups) and get out of preload. I can't say I blame them; if my loaders were having 5-10 misloads a day I'd be wanting out also.
