I've noticed alot of people advising new hires to AVOID being the go-to-guy on the belt. They say that being the go-to-guy will lead to you being "driven into the ground" and STOP your progress to being promoted because your supervisor will want to keep you doing what you do best, leaving you to miss tons of opportunity. Personally, I am more optimistic of giving it your all day in and day out. The problem is, I can't ignore the fact that I have been seeing hard workers being left behind to continue working while others are getting easier lines of work for more pay (more opportunity) It even happened to me! Someone with less PPH, load quality and more misloads frequency than me got to take a pickoff test for a dollar raise in front of me...and he had less seniority. My supe, when I confronted him, said it was because I'm a good loader! If UPS actively restrains good workers like this, how can you be motivated to work hard? Heck, I don't see how UPS can maintain good production if this mindset is prevalent in other facilities. From what I've seen I'm not the only 'go-to-guy' whose gotten SOL'd. Took me another month AND a new supervisor who would actually go out of his way to let me take that sort test.
