    I work as a sorter and the primary sorters just like to randomly missort and when I complain they start flipping labels. I work in a pretty busy hub and it's bad enough we don't get the privilege of having the labels facing us, than they flip every package down. The ft was right there and this happens everyday, hub manager doesn't care either. I'm at a loss. It gets me so upset they get away with this that I would like to quit but ups is definitely worth the long haul

    Are you in the Union yet? If you are, just let it snowball downhill then and when they complain you can remind them that they didn't care to begin with so why start now.

    Almost 5 years. Problem is my coworkers are all good people and we all do our part as a team. It's important to us

    If the managers don't care, why should you? Your job is to do what you can, and not worry about the rest.

    Nah those ones are the ones sending us all the crap. When we get it we all try our best to deal with it cuz we know it's not gonna stop.

    I care cuz the people sorting in front of me are all good sorters and if I give up I ruin their night and we all have to much respect for each other to just let it go to :censored2:

    Slow waaay down to where you can do it perfect despite the flipped labels. Let that be what gets their attention then.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    You want to quit over flipped labels?

    Better thicken that skin up if you're gonna make it to 30.

    You didn't ruin their day, the unloaders did. That is one reason they flip the labels, because they know you work like a madman to keep up.

    They laugh because they know it upsets you. The sooner you realize that you can't control what others do or don't do, the more stress free your life will be. Worry about doing YOUR best and leave the rest to others.

    Next time they do that, you can be the one laughing when you say, "I had the easiest day.........."

    I agree. "Sorry. Doing the best I can. All the labels are coming up upside down." Lose no sleep.

    Sure quit and give someone your undeserved seniority people like you make me sick you give our younger generation a "bad slap" and make large corporations reconsider hiring us 20-25 year olds because you want to quit over some petty shiznit

    When you go to work you have to put on your big boy draws and pucker your tail or you won't make it 10 years

    UPS won't reconsider hiring younger people. This isn't a job a 45 year old can just jump into. If anything they've dumbed down the process over the years. There's not a whole lot of thinking when it comes to PT. I'm not saying this because I'm a sup and I think people are useless. I say it because smart scanners and PAL labels have removed a lot of the thinking that goes into the job. The hardest job today on the PT level is clerk, and that isn't even that bad.

    OP you need to grow a wicked thick skin if you want to work here. It's annoying that they're flipping labels (and frankly a little childish) but if your sup doesn't care, neither should you. He's hurting himself by allowing that to happen.

    Well that's why I work 2 jobs instead of going to school because I work not sit on my asphalt and be the grammar police... And how the hell can you say the clerk job is the hardest pt job have you ever worked on a boxline belt because it sure doesn't sound like it? SUPE!
