    Could someone explain the ups management hierarchy?

    No one in my building even sups and center manager seem to know: is it center manager takes orders from the BA then the district manager is above him then division manager?

    You got that backwards.

    Center Manager > Division Manager > District Manager > Region Manager > Corporate

    You also have your sups, who work for the center manager. Sort sups and on car sups.

    Some places have Building Managers or Hub Managers. He/She is over all sups in that building. Some places he/she is over the center manager's in that building, other places he/she is not.

    Just depends whether you work in a hub or a center.

    I think they are using the greater than sign as just an arrow. If that helps.

    Is the hub manager over the feeders department?

    Depends on the hub. Some yes, some no.

    And it gets a little confusing because there is a Division Manager for feeders and a Division Manager for packages.

    There is only one District Manager in each district.. He is over everyone in the district.

    Depends on each operation. The Feeder Manager in my old bldg. is also the Hub Manager. He has both operations. He also has 2 or 3 good FT Sups in each operation. Two FT Sups on the twilight Hub with 60 employees and 2 FT Sups in Feeders with 80 drivers. No night sort, Day sort or Sunrise, only the twilight.
    If there were the additional sorts running at midnite and the day sort then there would probably be two separate managers for Feeders and Hub.

    oldngray nowhere special

    Hub and feeders are usually parallel operations and both under the District Manager.

    You apparently have an incompetent Division Manager that the District Manger does not trust. No surprise at UPS.

    There are 3 Regions.
    There are 20 Districts within these 3 Regions.
    There are hundreds of Divisions within these Districts.

    Each Division has a Division Manager over all the centers and hubs within his Division.
    Each District has a District Manager over all the Division Managers in his District.
    Each Region has a Region Manager over all the District Managers in his Region.

    Usually, in a small center, the Center Manager is top dog. There is usually not a Building Manager. He is over all the sort and package sups. Sometimes also over the feeder sups, sometimes not. They sometimes have their own Feeder Manager.

    In a hub, the Hub Manager is sometimes over, sometimes equal to the center manager. Depends on the hub.

    Once you get below the Division Manager, it depends on where you are as to whether the Center Manager, Hub Manager or Building Manager is top dog and who reports to who.

    But all these managers report to their Division Manager, who in turn report to their District Manager who in turn report to their Region Manager who in turn report to Corporate.

    Confusing isn't it?

    In the BOG retirees only show up to honor newly retired drivers. Beyond that we don't see or hear from the them. I like that.
