    Is there a reason this doesn't happen at UPS? Most jobs have somekind of review process,also for employees to express concerns or comments to management. When I first started years ago pt,they would take employees out go breakfast to talk about different things...I'm sure that 6 dollar breakfast once a year really broke the bank.

    Gone with the anniversary awards, safe driving awards, Christmas turkeys, etc.

    But seriously... yearly review? What would it say? "coldworld, your performance is outstanding but you're overpaid and can be replaced easily. The next time I need an ego boost, I'm going to fire you. Keep up the hard work. Your friendly center manager."

    Why do we need a review ??? It doesn't matter how good you do your job or if your the biggest F-up in the world you still going to get the same pay.

    I don't care how they think I'm preforming as long as I get paid every week I'll put in a fair days work everyday I come to work.

    As for the comments on management they make you fill out a form once a year on the computer if you have a problem make a comment there.

    You get a review all year 'round. If you are performing well you hear nothing. If you are on some type of list (whatever the reason) you hear alllll about it.

    We are reviewed daily with telematics. Also we are harassed and berated on a daily bases. Don't you think that's enough. I know I think that enough is enough.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    They used to call these TLA meetings--Talk, Listen, Act. The on-car would take us out to Friendly's and review our performance for the preceding year. I don't remember all of the areas that we discussed but among them were send agains, over/under, DFU's, concerns and sales leads. We would then discuss any areas that need improvement and work on an action plan for the following year.

    I have but I don't think it is realistic to ever expect to return to the relationship that existed before that.

    Ask a woman whose husband betrayed her when she will get over it. Just saying.

    Me and my boys will never forget either. Sounds like a middle eastern conflict where we will not forget for a thousand years. Sounds like the new ups to me. Game on

    There are 2 reasons why we dont have a review process.

    1. They dont care what you think of them.

    2. You shouldnt care what they think of you.

    A lot of the "relationship" has changed in just the last few years. I don't think you can put that on 1997.

    Comparing it to a marriage is a little much, don't you think?

    My math was off, closer to 15 years.

    Competition is getting old, also. When you are netting the kind of billions UPS is, that is a moot point.

    The real issue is getting that stock to hover around $80 no matter what it takes, no matter how many humans you walk over to do it.
