I need to give management credit

    For all my years I’ve been a driver here at UPS, it always seems like peak would pop up and surprise management and we would always be unprepared when the avalanche eventually came. This year that has not been the case at least in my center and building. Around June I noticed new drivers being trained every single week, more so than any previous year. I remember asking an on road sup what was up with that and he informed me management would be trying to train 2-3 new guys per week in preparation for peak. And they did just that. We have more routes in this peak than ever before, some guys are a little heavy some days, but nothing like some previous years. Management had a plan, they executed it and now they can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Well done. I’m so proud to be a UPSer, I never take it lightly that I get to wake up everyday and put my Browns on. I’m going to do everything I can to continue to represent this company in a positive way and do my (small) part to pave the way for future drivers.

    I think that UPS finally realized that they were killing us.....killing service.....and killing profit. They were finally at a point that they couldn’t just have us work later or maybe an extra Saturday to get caught up. They had no choice.

    Are you able to type your posts with a straight face or are you laughing your ass off at the same time? They’re quite funny.

    Trolls are fun, but trolls that can't even keep their stories straight are even funnier.

    Especially when they’re extolling the virtues of management so strongly that only an idiot wouldn’t realize they ARE management.

    Dave aint stupid. He wouldnt have said "first year driver" in one post, and "all my years driving" in another.
    In fact, very few people are that dumb.

    I don't know---- Upstate said quite a few stupid things trying to convince people he knew everything.
