    I'm curious----whats a 5 year certificate? I don't recall getting any "year" type certificates. We did get"safe driving" pins and a billfold for a years worth of accident free driving. I guess it boils down to them replacing an actual reward with a worthless piece of paper. I suppose you could make a paper airplane out of it. Anyway---congradulations.

    I remember when I got my 5 year certificate. It was right after I had passed my 6 year anniversary and my fulltime supervisor hands me this box with my name on it covered in dust and he says "Here, this was found for you" and he walks away. I never felt so special as a UPS employee as I did at that moment.

    It is up to local management to give to the employee.

    I imagine yours went into file 12.

    Do much dumpster diving? :wink2:

    I remember when management used to hand them to you after removing them from the box.

    During your 5 years of employment here, do you feel a loyalty to the company? Asking this as the company has changed so much in the 13 I've been driving. I've gone from bleed brown to how much cash can I milk from this cow until I can get off the farm.

    It's always been just a job to me. I work pre-load. I'm also one of the ones who started here later in life. Just a means for good benefits. I think if I and my Co-workers were treated better, I may have a different out look.
