    Received my first check from driver training orientation. It was a 4 day class ( 7-4pm Saturday-Tuesday)
    Tuesday we left early after testing was complete 9:15am(ish).
    I was told that Saturday was "unpaid" training.
    I had 22 hours on my check but I also came in Friday and worked 6 hours at my hub.

    Is this normal of having unpaid training or "your own pace" training as they called it. From what I'm seeing is that I wasn't paid for testing nor Saturday. Is this normal?

    I was also told I would be compensated for mileage and food due to the fact of my distance from the training site and my hub.

    That doesn't sound right. You should be paid for any hours you worked. I don't do anything unpaid at UPS...up to and including using the bathroom!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The mileage and per diem will be on a separate check.

    There is no "free training" at UPS. Make a copy of your paystub and write down the hours that you believe that you were shorted.

    I thought UPS didn't care about your orientation. We're an equal opportunity employer!

    I figured the question would have been about the correct spelling of it. Guess I was way off on that guess. ;)

    I don't know why, but every time he posts, I feel like I need to cover up.
