    Operations wouldn’t know the answer to that question. We are still working while the rest of UPS works at home, self quarantines or whatever else HR calls it

    If you are not moving packages, are you really doing anything?

    I do a hell of a lot. There may be a lot of dead weight but there are also a lot of people who contribute greatly behind the scenes, and deal with a lot of BS also, even though they may never touch a package. The company needs more than just operations people to function.

    same guy that'll tell you to go help someone else because he doesnt understand that an apartment complex/trailer park isn't just one stop when it's 50+ packages.

    There are good and bad management people in all departments.

    Good ops folks don’t need an IE/OE person to tell us a reasonable goal. Especially when they have no clue half the time.

    good ops folks don’t need a PE Supervisor/manager to tell us we can’t afford to fix something that’s been broken for months.

    I’m not saying that you are doing that but I know at my hub these departments are “working from home” when the rest of us are working side by side with package drivers, feeder drivers, and hub employees to get through this pandemic.

    They don’t don’t do anything value added AT work...what in the world could they do at home that is worthwhile?

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    Our IE guy is doing his side hustle. Lawn care and AC repair. Must be nice to be nonessential. I'll bet he doesn't put in 2 hrs for UPS.

    Both of my children and my son's fiance have been working from home. My SIL is a firefighter and it would be hard for him to work from home. While the other 3 have been enjoying their time with their children (and saving on daycare), all of them would prefer to be back in the office. Working from home is NOT like being on vacation, especially with an 11 month old.

    You should refrain from using words that you barely understand and probably had to Google to make sure to spell it right.

    You should probably just stick with packages.

    I'm always willing to learn. Perhaps you could point out whatever error you believe has occurred Skippy. And I'd love some of your amazing financial advice. I could really use it.
