Let me start by saying hi )) to everyone on this forum....I just register a few minutes ago. I've been working Pre-load for UPS for a bit over 3 months now....it was not very good the first couple of weeks you know. I was never a morning person.....good God....the earlierst I used to wake up was 8:00 am.....LOL....no more. Anyhow....this is my story: I did apply for the PT Air Driver position at the UPS center in my city.....got the interview....(extremely fast....almost like the HR guy had to go somewhere else in a matter of seconds) and got the job. Then, was told to get the DOT....got it done. Did the first week of training school, driving with supervisors, road test, DIAD, nice videos, etc, etc....all Done. I Was told that the center was going to call me in about 2-3 days. After that, a bit more than a week pass and no calls from UPS....by the way....I was calling the center every 2 days to follow up on things....and was told to be patient. After 2 weeks the manager called....and the next day went to the center. This is the nice part....where I smelled the coffee....the office manager told me that I needed to work on Saturdays in order to be a PT air driver....1 nice. Had no idea that I was supposed to work on Saturdays....the HR guys did not share that important piece of info. Just beautiful. It is not that I don't like to work on Saturdays, I just cannot....my wife is a realtor and needs to work on the weekends....and we have two youngs kids (7, and 9 yrs.old). Anyways....they said that until I can work on Saturdays they can put me in Pre-load....and that is what I've been doing until now. Now....I got pretty used to it. Waking up at God forsaking hours is not as bad....(start at 4:30 am). Oh well....But....2 weeks ago one of the drivers told me that Saturdays are not a requirement, but a choice....and that sometimes supervisors use Saturdays for training of new guys....because its a slow day, no pressure....that make sense. I talked to the Drivers Supervisors, and basically told him that I can go out for a couple of Saturdays just so I can get the experience, with deliveries, and the DIAD. He took my name and phone number....and told me to be patient. The next day, the office manager (dont' like the guy at all by the way) said that until I can work on Saturdays that I wouldnt' be able to drive. I don't get it....I see many PT air drivers after Pre-load that go out to make deliveries....and they don't work on Saturdays....some do....but it's a choice. Should I go a bit higher to get a decent explanation from UPS????...or should I be a bit "patient".???? UPS it's not a bad company to work for (at least in my own opinion), it's their supervisors and managers who with their obsolete managerial methods screw the whole thing up for everyone. (Of course sometimes they are all just brainwashed I guess....) Thanks in advance my friends,.
