    center manager is higher. But my dispatch knows it all. Genius in his own mind.

    This is my understanding of the UPS food chain.
    District Manager
    Labor Manager
    Division Manager
    Center Manager and Preload Manager
    On Car Supervisor and PDS Supervisor
    Everyone else

    Close enough for your perspective.

    The dispatcher answers to IT manager more then the center manager. So if its a pissing match the center manager has to go around to the DIV.M. To get results. Same thing with 9-5s. If the center manager has balls he can just kick it to labor. It's a F*** up food chain if you ask me.

    There are levels of VP at UPS.
    Executive VP
    Senior VP
    Assistant VP
    Probably a couple more.

    When a person is named to a VP level, they have certain legal and fiduciary powers and responsibilities.
    UPS has had multiple VPs as long as I can remember.
    ​District managers are at a VP level.

    Both are puppets, so it really doesnt matter whether one of them has longer strings than the other one. I have never understood the logic of paying someone $85K per year and referring to them as a "manager" when they arent allowed to make even the most basic of operational decisions. If you are prohibited from deciding how many routes to dispatch, how many stops to load into those routes, or which shelf to load those stops onto...why are you even being referred to as a "manager" in the first place?
