    Hey UPSers...;-)

    Does anyone of you know the location of an UPS hub, I mean a really good and big one, in the Bay Area? Around or in San Francisco, CA or in Silicon Valley?

    I will be there in summer, and I wanted to visit a big hub with customer center or so...I do not mean the UPS Stores! I mean the hubs with many trucks...:-D

    Thanks a lot,

    I hear the drivers in SF take their pants off in response to being disciplined--are you sure you want to go there?

    That might be the attraction for him.

    Don't go to Oakland. Bunch of morons there. Either San Francisco, San Bruno, Sacramento, or Northbay. The Northbay hub is neat, the train drives right onto the property for loading and unloading.

    Don't really care--a 30 yr employee should have more pride in himself and in the job to do something stupid like that, no matter what the circumstances were.

    afterwards , if you have time, go take a visit to the naval base. If you're not sure how to get there, ask directions.

    In that case, I would think you two would get along pretty well. No offense intended, but you certainly can not deny your enthusiasm for this outfit. I know, it is "your career".

    I would most certainly hope that his "fascination" for all things UPS and my enthusiam in furthering my career are in no way one in the same. I do not apologize for going the extra step while doing my job, even though that is not the union way of doing things.

    Case in point--had a pkg for an apt bldg which did not have the apt # but did have the phone number. Called it several times on Monday and got the machine. Consignee called me back yesterday and gave me her apt # and asked if she would get her TV the same day. I told her yes, called the bldg and had them do the ADC so that I could run it off on my way home. No, I did not set the TV up for her, but she did thank me for going the extra step. That's the nice part of this job.

    Oh, Sulu

    As Artie Lange once sarcastically responded to this clip " No, you're kidding"

    BLACKBOX Life is a Highway...


    First you asked about obtaining a uniform, now you're asking about address for a large UPS Hub,you're from Germany and have no affiliation with UPS.

    I hope the Corporate monitor's on this site make a note about your inquires. You need to be on the "whats his intention list?".

    Am right now in SF and went to the hub last week...unfortunately the hub was totally secured and I asked a few employees there to get in for making some photos, but there was no chance...but the securitry was ver friendly.

    BUT: I went to a few UPS Stores in SF and I met the owner of the Chestnut St Store who was very kind to me. He gave me tons of merchandise and he tries to organize me a tour thru the UPS hub...hope that works.

    But I, as a German, have to is AWESOME here for any UPS SF, especially in the Finance District, you see in almost EVERY street cars.
    Talked with many drivers here and all were absolutely friendly and explained me the whole system is definetely different to Germany.

    Hate to burst your bubble but UPS doesnt allow photos of the inside of the hub....Theres a another UPS related message board that has tons of pics inside the hub of damaged packages and such
