This has been an on going topic,in "hows the view?" I figured it needed its own thread.
Tip your loader if they deserve it...if they make an effort to organize and show that they give a schnit. I know I can take one look at a truck...and what bulk is left outside a truck...and tell immediately that the loader is either completely clueless...or just doesn't give a schnit. We are not waiters...tips are appreciated, but shouldn't not be expected simply because it's Christmas.
A good preloader,can big a big difference in your day! A bad one,can ruin it.
Mine has 11 years under his belt. He has been loading for me about 2 years, the first year i didnt do anything , last year I gave him 50, that kinda makes up for the whole year. Usually in the past , the three trucks the loader has I ask the drivers to chip in 20 a piece at least , its xmas and on my route i will receive at least 200 which i can pass along to the one who can make or break you.
Yup...you know you're a good loader when you come back from vacation to a Thank god you're back and the horror load stories from the week before...lol.
I only had 1 preloader that was worth his weight in my 9 year package car career. I went into feeders and he was still there. I knew it was time to retire when I saw my old preloaders name on the Circle of Honor plaque posted at the guard shack. lol.
Had the opposite happen. She was out for a week and when she returned I thought "Oh crap, you're back."
If you complain enough....they will probably move her.
Careful what you wish for. The next one,may be even worse!
Stevie Wonder with a shovel? lol
Had him a couple of years ago. Lousy loader but a good singer.
Really we need a separate thread to discuss whether someone doing there job gets a tip? off. No one tips me when I bring the truck back empty. How about this? You load my truck right I won't punch you in the lip. Bam. There is your ing tip.
You should be my driver....you're entitled not to tip...but give me an attitude like that? You'll see how backwards I can up your load and still keep my job. Over 100's? Label face down on the floor. Air in the load??? Oops...thought it was a 7 not a 1, my bad!
I'm starting to feel the same way. lol
I'd love to be your driver...
Dude, calm down. Really punch your preloaded, good way to lose your high paying job. I had idiots like you for drivers and I would go out of my way to make sure you had a organized car.
I'm wondering if this "tipping" thing (between UPS employees) is something associated with the east coast more than anywhere else? I don't ever recall any tipping going at my center between employees. As far as that goes drivers very seldom got a tip from customers. I bet I didn't get 50 bucks in tips over 30 years. I probably could have receive more but I always tried to refuse them. Most of the time they were offered by little old ladies who couldn't afford it anyway. Maybe at Christmas we would get 5 bucks or a pair of gloves but never fifty or a hundred bucks like some of you say you get. I totally understand giving a waiter/waitress or bar tender a nice tip but it seems like tipping is almost a "expected thing" for any service out east no matter how well the persons is paid by his employer. I'm not saying its wrong-- just that it don't happen that way in the Midwest. How about the west coast? Are they tip crazy too?
Right, you could do all those things. Some people do. I could be a ty driver too, but I have to look in the mirror everyday. So I choose to do a good job, I don't expect a tip though for simply doing what I am supposed to do...
Haha no snake face I would never really punch a pre-loader. Sarcasm. Look it up please and get back to me.
