    I was hired in September of last year and fired in January.I was often late initially and missed a few days.I was told I could apply again next year as a seasonal and my guess would be not to apply until they absolutely need bodies for the meat grinder.Should I bother applying now?

    If you were fired there is no way you're getting rehired. Try FedEx

    Put an application in. Ups is pretty much at the bottom of the barrel hiring workers and supervisors now. You might get back in.

    Yes. But showing up late and missing work indicates fired.

    Too bad.

    Next time you get hired on the second day turn in your retirement papers and they have to pay you a pension. Win win!

  12. IIRC if you lose your job at UPS within six months of your hire date (fire, quit) then you are blacklisted from ever working with the company again.

  14. UPS does not respond kindly to constant attendance problems from what I have heard.

    That's not an official policy.

    Of the 500 million sperm fighting to get to the promised land, this is the one that made it. I can't help to wonder what might have been had one of the other ones made it. SMH

    For the sake of your coworkers, don't. People with attendance issue cause us hell when they don't show up and management tries to split 3 pulls between 2 people. Yes, the job sucks more often than not but that's no excuse to not take it seriously.
