Hi im new to UPS going on my 4th week as a preloader. My first 2 days i loaded the 2nd-4th package cars. After that, the guy at the end of the belt had a back injury and ive been placed loading the last 3 trucks on the belt. I Also pull about 40 boxes and stack them at the end of the work area for a 4th truck that ive never seen. If i hold my own i will load these trucks for a good amount of time. Ive noticed that working at the top of the belt and the end of the belt can be approached with different tactics in order to be efficient as possible. I prefer the end of the belt because im 5'11 225lbs and im not as quick as the others on the belt. Working at the end is easier for me because the packages are heavy but fewer come by. I've been able to handle any package that comes down the belt. Stacking Bulk stops (usually RDCs) at the end of the rollers/work area has helped me with getting the drivers out in time. I usually let a nice stack of my last truck to build up at the end of the belt, while i clean up my first two trucks. For me stacking boxes right outside my trucks seems inevitable, but the sups curse me out whenever they see a stack of boxes (one driver says F*** them keep stacking). sups prefer that i only touch each package once. Sometimes its hard for me to remember the bulk stop sequence number without looking at the load sheet. I have a lot more time to sort inside my trucks since im at the end of the belt and its impossible for boxes to pass me by. Once i hear the sound of boxes falling off the belt, i know it is time to jump out. Sups dont like it when i let boxes fall off the belt. What should i do with other peoples boxes that pass them and end up on my work area? Today we had a "weak loader at the top" (says my pt. sup) so i spent a significant amount of time getting other peoples boxes out of my area. ill just throw the box up the belt, but not every throw is perfect and the boxes end up in interesting places... tactics? The end of the belt i work on happens to be where the managers hang out near their offices and it is also very near to the pedestrian entrance. So as you can imagine, im exposed to plenty of UPSers watching me do my thing. I feel like my area is "the show" for anyone who quickly wants to see some belt action. Since i have a lot of exposure Ive had plenty of comments such as. "these aint rookie trucks." "they must like the way you work if youre doing these trucks.". i also get a lot of "blame it on the rookie" moments from managers that pass by. I haven't reached seniority yet, and i want to make a good impression on the hub and my superiors. New hires have been moving up to driver positions in less than 2 years. Im pushing hard to make a good impression and work towards FT driver. any advice for me to work smarter and efficient is greatly appreciated.
