I'm sure this is no surprise, but HR has been lying to all the preloaders telling us we are permanent. I am a previous employee from 2007, and was told they didn't start doing this until recently. I straight up asked the preload supervisor what the deal was and her response was "unfortunately the new hires are told their permanent when that's not the case. We probably hired about 40 people and plan to keep about 10." I don't understand how a company can be so unprofessional? Mostly everyone I've talked to has been there since October or November, and one even started yesterday... They tell driver helpers they are seasonal...Almost every company has no problem telling seasonal employees that their position is temporary...Why does UPS lie to these employees? Do they eventually get called back or are they pretty much done after December? Why can't they just be honest up front so people don't leave their jobs because they have been told they've been given a great opportunity? I don't see the benefit in this?
