I'm a driver in Blainville, Quebec and when we are short staffed,which is every day, the preloaders scan 10:30 air as closed before the drivers leave the building. The 10:30 are the delivered around 15:30 hrs.
Hmmmm.....And then later you deliver it to the same address you sheeted as NSN ???? Seems like this would raise huge red flags. I wouldnt do it. Falsifying a DIAD entry is a firable offense.
I read a lot of this BS, and I thank God my center manager isnt an idiot. Theres been 10 in the 14 years Ive been in this center, and my current manager is by far the best. Hes straightforward and wants everyting done right (thats all!). If its missed, you sheet it missed. If its late, you sheet it late. No hiding anything, everything aboveboard.
Sadly, honest management people are rare in this company. Lying and cheating are routine for so many of them. The company is simply a reflection of the kind of people that go into management. It is why we have so many problems at UPS today. In most other companies, promotions are earned by merit. At UPS all you have to do is put a letter in stating that you are willing to conform to UPS' nonsense. This doesn't get UPS' best people into management. In fact, it gets many of UPS' worst people there. They hold these positions by default because decent people refuse to take them. Most workers I know are turned off and unwilling to act as UPS wants it's managers and supervisors to. Harassing and hurting workers to get a job done is of a prehistoric mentality and beneath most of us. I think this approach is taken because it is their only option. Most have no education or real qualifications to manage centers, buildings etc.
It's fun to watch idiots who believe they know what they are doing but actually don't. So many managers and supervisors at UPS would get better results if they just stayed home each day. I will just continue to watch and laugh. Ive only got five more years until I retire from this miserable company.
I have seen stuff like this maybe 10 years ago but really dont see it going on anymore.Either you guys twist the truth a little bit(some cases alot)or you guys really have some screwy centers. I am sure its a little of both.
King, I honestly don't know what to say about your post, except....I really feel sorry for you, to have to put up with what you have described for 20+ years. I wonder how you have managed to survive. You must certainly be quite the person to put in that much time and retire with full benefits from this miserable company...
Well written and in my experience about 95% true. There have been occasional exceptions but far too few. Our current situation is similar to what you describe. My managers are such poor examples of leaders, they couldn't lead me across the street.
