    25 years ago today I was 21 years old and reported to work for the first time. Wonder what my center did for me today??? <------- yup, nothing. Oh well, at least I collect a paycheck every week!

    You should be getting a 25 YOS plaque, sometime around your 30th.

    I thought they didn't give plaques anymore----just paper certificates.

    It's not the only thing you have been wrong about! :wink2:

    Plateau years 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and above are recognized with a plaque on Founders’ Day (August 28th).
    You get the certificate on your actual anniversary date.

    I never dug deep enough in the dumpster to find any of those 50 year ones.

    Still have to be 50 even with 25 and out.

    I salute you for your effort. Unfortunately I think you'll get more recognition by ordering a Big Kids meal at Burger King and write your name in sharpie on a paper crown.

    I never thought about using a Sharpie ... can't wait until next time.

    You can be the employee of the month or the CEO, the skies the limit when you present yourself in such high class apparel.

    Congrats again, I'm going to open another beer in your honor, I've already spent more on this celebration than UPS.

    I had 25 yrs last April and my center manager brought a box of doughnuts and a balloon to the PCM and congratulated me in front of everyone. I also got a plaque, and an award from the gift catalogue. I picked a pretty nice little ipod/iphone dock with detachable speakers, my wife and I use it to listen to music in the kitchen. Its too bad the company isnt consistent about recognizing milestones for everyone.

    If they do something for me when I hit those milestones that's cool, if not oh well. I've lowered my expectations a lot around here so I don't get disappointed as often.

    If I show up on the day of my 25th and they ignore me or they give me a cake and a plaque does it really matter? I'm thinking 5 to go.

    I didn't get a thing, not even a mention on my 37th anniversary last October.

    If I'm still there on my 37th the only I would require is a noose.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Not in Upstate NY---she would have to work at least 9 more years---30 and out at age 55 or older.

    Depends on where she's at. Here you can roll out at 25 regardless of age.
