    I got about $6000 between jan. 1999 and june 2000. The internet boom was great........June 2000 was my last lead.......a dishonest driver was stealing them......and no, it wasn't me.

    hey buddy, so is ups ireland a small operation. Always interesting to find out how many buildings, and drivers there are in other countries. There was an article one year in ups mag about turkey and how they have hundreds of "brown" drivers. Pretty inpressive since I have never seen a pickup or delivery in or out of that country. Does fedex have a large presence in Ireland?

    The golden 80's!!! Beer and pizza, baby, beer and pizza!!!! I keep saying that for all of us that remember when UPS used to take us out for beer and pizza at the end of the shift. Great days before all the lawyers got involved.

    hi i work for ups in dublin ireland and have got some good items from sales leads points over the last 12 months.i work in the brokerage dept so see the new customers coming through when doing customs clearence,i think as the drivers are our "face of the company" the see the competition coming and going in and out of companies.
    ireland has 3 centers dublin cork and shannon and 1 billing ctr/1 icstc centre alsong with various scs parts of the business.fedex aren't as big as they were here back pre 1992 but we are up against it to a certain degree with dhl as they seem to ship goods for little or nothing,god knows how they make any profits.although when your propped up by the old german gov it doesn't help.the driver that points were stolen should try and get a p/word and get logged onto one of the computersin the centre and send the sales leads online and that way they won't be stolen..

    I would like to know where is our Freight lead money? I have had two customers switch and ship Freight but, no $$$ so far on the card. Until I see my $50 dollars I'm done getting leads.

    The PE department still has the old hub manager's desk in storage. This is a huge mahogany desk complete with mini bar. now it is in storage and the current hub managers office is about the size of the old desk and he no longer has his own private bathroom with shower that they used to have.

    Those were the good old days. I still have memories of the whole Center going down the street to a Pizza place and taking it over after work. Many pitchers of beer were consumed, and we even had guys dancing on a table one night!:lol: Its a wonder no one was killed or got locked up for DUI driving home.
