How bad off am I? Qualification questions

    For starters I’ve been with UPS since September 2018, started preload then got my opportunity to go part time driving. Long story short I didn’t scratch 5 days straight. On day 28 my manager rode with me and wants to keep me and so does my on road sup. Both have fought to try to keep me so I’m told. District Hr says take me off, head of our state says leave me on. I scratched 3 days, 2 of them being back to back. I don’t recall my averages but I typically wasn’t over by more than half an hour. Can anybody provide a little insight, on what may happen or similar experiences.

    Nobody knows. I've seen guys who have never scratched get passed. Who knows?

    You may go back to preload or you may not

    I did preload all last week and got called today wanting me to load this week too but my manager says they should be able to put my route in next week. It’s been an incredibly vague process the entire time.

    Sometimes I am so grateful for our center. In 30days qualifying I don’t think I ever scratched. Never even got asked about it.

    How many sales leads have you submitted?
    90% of qualifying is sales leads

    That’s what I don’t understand. I’m in a relatively small center, maybe have 2 drivers scratch a day out of 50-60, and then this.

    Is that true? Or are you trolling? You guys are making this into a very difficult situation for me...

    Zero. There has also been no talk of importance of sales leads in my center.
     
  11. He is exaggerating a bit but honestly they do want you to get a sales lead to qualify

    govols019 You smell that?

    Our guys trying to qualify are being told they must have a sales lead.

    That’s tough man. I know we are at there mercy when we are within our 30 days. Even to this day our center doesn’t really care about scratch more about 9.5

    That’s dumb. The training route I qualified on is basically 2 streets and it’s nothing but industrial and bulk. Can’t get a sales lead when all the business there ship with us anyway. Glad I didn’t have to get one. Hell I never got a sales lead period lol

    I’ve got 1 day over 9.5 and it was in my first week. They added 30+ stops that I wasn’t familiar with. Since then I’ve been close almost everyday day
     
  16. They always want more.

    I never knew cover drivers had to scratch either. Figured they get 30 days in and they are good to go. Hell we had a cover driver under 30days rear end 3 cars in front of him and he still qualified. Now that was impressive.

    Back when I qualified I was told if I didn't get at least one sales lead I would not qualify.

    One of my PU also shipped through FedEx. I got the shipping guys name and phone number by telling him I had to submit this to keep my job. And that the sales lady, which he already knew, would be calling him. He said, "again?"

    But hey that was my sales lead.

    I used to get sales leads. Now all it means is my wife can pick some ups gear to give to my kids. I don't bother anymore
