look what I dug up.
When did they add sales leads to methods?
It's a sups checklist for checking a drivers methods.
When I first started I remembered they wanted a sales lead every week. Now it hasn't been heard of in years.
All numbers now.
They have something similar for preload....safety observation....blah blah blah...lol. I think the chief complaint was...I grab too many small packages one handed....wat???
If they didn't have anything to complain about they would complain about that. I heard they have to find at least a one thing to ding you on.
Check out #17: "impress the shipper with the importance of a set schedule." Seems like UPS could use some of their own advice (ORION, add/cuts, cut routes, etc).
Yeah I didn't even look at them. Had a manager give it to me because my lack of performance was apparently due to my lack of using the methods.
He said a "method" was being out of the truck in 7.5 seconds with the package.
Do they fill that out while on the truck with you or from the bushes across the street?
No, what's a sales lead?
I am not doing any of that crap
An updated, ORION friendly, version....
Second complaint I bet was about not making optimal carries. Can't win.
They want sales leads? Givem sales leads!
On Monday, hand them the ads from Sundays Newspaper and tell them
"Here are leads on sales at various stores this week"
You said you wanted sales leads, here they are!"
Nah, I'd rather log into upsers and see the ones my on-car submitted in my name.
When they ask me for sales leads I point out that I have had my route for 20 years and I average about 40 business deliveries and with 30 pickups. Of the ten remaining, well over half use prepaid or ODS. The remaining few either don't ship anything or have signed national contracts for other carriers. That usually shuts them up.
The S no longer stands for service. Stops.
I've seen many switch from daily accounts that occasionally shipped, to occasional shippers with a flag in the window. Just makes sense for them, but I don't know if UPS understands we are still getting the volume generated.
