Hey everyone, I've been a lurker on this board since I started working for UPS in September. Let's just say I work in Colorado on the preload loading bulk trucks for a major mall and am a full time student. Well after a while I got sick of all the nonsense going on with management and their major concerns with numbers and not having any concern with employees at all. I know all about it, but didn't finally face it till I was permanently assigned to these trucks. Well I have a job offer with a major soda manufacturer as a merchandiser and was wondering if you had the option, would you take it? There are plusses and minuses and I'm pretty sure I'm going to work for the soda manufacturer, but just wanted to see if there was something I forgot that might sway my decision to the brown side. Soda Distributor $1.50 more per hour All the soda you could ask for Thirty hours a week Guaranteed hours Work shift starts at 5 am instead of 230 am Dont have to deal with multiple supervisors Work in surrounding neighborhood where I live No benefits like UPS UPS Health Benefit/ Ed (Benefit packet finally came tonight) Guaranteed Hours Treated like slave Thanks guys! Plus I'm truly amazed with what we all do day in and day out just to get that check at the end of the week. This job helped me to have an appreciation for the hard working people at UPS, but with the supervisor nonsense and a lack of being able to find a steward on my shift, its causing me to leave. I will probably be phoning in tomorrow morning to resign. Take care all and good luck on peak.
