    Have your load qualities been good enough that you feel your preloader deserve a little extra for all his hard work?

    My regular loader is at driving school. I usually give him $100 but will prorate that to $75.

    His replacement is struggling and this may be a difficult Peak for me.

    Always do the right thing.... $50 to $100+ if you got the same loader every day.. and if they do a good job.....

    Hell no. Customers tip. As a driver, I am not a customer.

    I tip my Helper the most if he shows up on time. My Preloader and mechanic get some too. I usually re-gift the cash that my customers give me. I keep the adult beverages.

  7. UPS refers to other employees who depend on your work ethic "in house" customers. I won't be tipping my loader :censored2:. I might buy him coffee so I can spit in it.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Do a good job lol. If we were ripping them for a job well done very few would get a tip.

    "Prorate"????

    Do you give him an itemized receipt with the tip???

    Really who does that???

    Oh only douche bag mentality that probably speaks in third person.

    "Hi loader, Dave decided to tip you but don't worry, Dave prorated it so that you know how much Dave appreciates you only part of the year "

    Man up cheapskate and give the kid $100. Better yet give him $200.

    He had to put up with you all year.

    He earned it.

    I always get $50 and a card from my UPS Store. I just cross out my name in the card and put my preloaders and he gets the money. My preloader thinks it's hilarious.

    I think the Helpers should tip us for being 20 minutes late everyday! Yeah, what a headache

    I asked him why he can't be bothered to be on time, and he says, "I'm usually late because I have to stop for breakfast and get gas." smh

    No loader will be getting a tip from me this year. I have a rotisserie of loaders tackling my truck on a daily basis. And just when you think you have a good one......Poof....gone :(

    That's when you lie to them about when to be there. If you want him there at 11 tell him to be there at 10:45. Works for my wife. ;)

    I got a subway gift card one year from one driver I loaded for...I'm a cover driver so since I don't have my own loader I'll be spending that money on Jim beam.

    I never tipped anyone at work but gave gifts throughout the year. gatorade and snacks for the loaders quite often and occasionally bought lunch/dinner for both the day and night shift mechanics and bosses at the shop.

    My preloader is straight garbage..I go in early every day to fix my damn truck and whatever I don't get too there's always something wrong.

    I'm not tiping this guy. Maybe he should tip me for loading his truck.
