Excessive favoritism of one employee is destroying morale.

    The male, full-time Supervisor in charge of the Preload area (not some bulls**t part-timer supervisor, but a 25-years-of-service-at-one-building-supervisor) at my location has, unfortunately, taken a liking to a fairly new, female, just-out-of-high-school Preload union employee.

    The favoritism of this one (practically a high-school kid) employee is so extreme and ridiculous that it has virtually destroyed all of the other employees' morale.

    Of course, rules do not apply to this girl: She openly texts & talks on her cell phone while working, and the Supervisor turns his head to it! She constantly insults others (I don't mean joking around sarcasm) and makes rude, condescending comments to her co-workers --- some who have many years of seniority over her! She comes in at least 10 minutes late EVERYDAY. She tells him what job she feels like doing that day, and he goes along with whatever she says.

    The Supervisor fired two, yes two, seasonal hires because they didn't put up with her smart-ass mouth and handed her insults right back to her. All she had to do was tell Supervisor, and he invented some fake reason to get rid of them.

    It's to the point now that the majority of the employees in the Preload can't stand working anywhere near her, but are afraid to say something because she is (unofficially) running the show.

    Just a little background info -- it's a rural area warehouse, and nearly every employee knows every other employee (and all supervisors) pretty well, including the building's union steward, which makes things even more difficult to resolve.

    Wax your mustache and show some cleavage. Maybe he’ll take a shine to you as well.

    For hopefully the last time anyone needs to say this:
    UPS is NOT high school.

    It doesn't matter what special treatment you think someone else is getting.
    Show up. Punch in. Work. Punch out. Go home.

    If she is a terrible person to talk to, then don't. Really that simple.
    We work here to walk away with a paycheck. Not to socialize.

    Everyone I work with is so negative and pissed off about the favoritism that it makes for a miserable work day. Just venting I guess.

    Not much you really can do in a small building. Maybe an anonymous letter to the sups wife?

    Seems to me the sup is ruining his own marriage. The worst thing the wife could do is keep him.

    By showing favoritism to a pretty girl? I didn't hear anything about him bending her over a load stand or anything.

    If showing favoritism to a pretty girl is ruining a marriage then every man has ruined his marriage at some point.

    I may wash a pretty girls package car or fuel it once in a while just for the attention, but this sounds like more over the top stuff. The only attention I get is a nice smile.
