    We both started at the same time years ago. He keeps begging me to become a supervisor. He says it's not right to keep being an employee and being a supervisor is where the money is.

    Is he right?

    PT sups don't make $21/h with full benefits. And they certainly do not earn a pension and $19 in raises a few years later.

    There is money in it if your willing to sacrifice your soul and go the distance to make full time. Health benefits are not as attractive though.

    Wait until you're a couple months or years down the road and you see the sad look on his face as you go driving and he's stuck in the building huffing his center manager's farts.

    Management gets treated worse than us from what I've seen. They are on-call 24/7 and when you add up the extra hours they work the money doesn't look that great to me. They have to pay for health insurance and their MIP bonuses aren't what they used to be. They just go around trying to fix problems all day and are under a lot more stress. I don't blame anybody for wanting a bigger challenge or more money, it just doesn't look like it's worth it to me.

    The pressure and stress of the position is tremendous. Upper management suck they life out of their soul forcing them to treat employees like dogs. Many cannot handle this realizing this is not the way you treat a person. In my time with the company, I seen several sups break down mentally and many have heart problems. Something they have to live with for the rest of their lives becoming that kind of a person. My parents did not bring me up that way. I could never treat another human being like they did.

    If you have worked at UPS for more than 6 months you should already know the answer.

    You are assuming all people have a conscience. UPS is proof that is not true.

    Such a myth. We're not on call 24/7. The MIP bonuses are great. You have a opportunity of always moving up more. I make a lot more money than a lot of the drivers. 3 cars a house, a business building that I purchased and probably have more of a life than the average driver, id say that management isn't bad at all. It's how you make it. Everyone in this thread couldn't cut it In the management world and love the safety cusion behind the union so they stay what they are. At the end of my career at UPS my salary will be way beyond 250k+.
