We had a guy hired and was told 5pm to 10pm.
His first week, they told him to come in at 4pm. He said he couldn't, because he had a FT job.
They let a good worker go. Then they hired a POS that lives with his mom and comes in an hour late.

That's the end of the story.

Does UPS really think that the young people are so naïve that they can hire someone for a PT job and then switch it to FT and still call it PT?

And crusty old veterans that are PT and willingly shift to FT.... when the mood strikes ?

Or, they need more money for the next week ?


Interesting juxtaposition.... don't ya think ?


:biggrin:

I still tell the company....

"You hired them. I just have to represent them."

@Bobby101 UPS management thrives on Control, Threats ,Fear and Intimidation. Of course you are going to be threatened with termination because you have to leave,there is no other way UPS management can deal with the situation.

The reality is they cant keep people and they know it.the warning letters, Intent to Suspend or Terminate mean nothing. Come to work every day on time,dont steal and do your job. You wont get terminated.

That's their privilege, to work more when they want, and turn down the offer for more work when they want. Welcome to seniority.

UPS needs to learn, if they’re not going to pay part timers a living wage then this is exactly what’s going to happen.

You have been with the company for 3 years, have you thought about driving full time? I’m sure you have the seniority to win a bid on a 22.4 position. Then you can work your way up to RPCD. You won’t need a second job driving full time and in 4-5 years you’ll be making more money than you know what to do with.
