    I been in contact with a few UPSers and there are three management people in their 20's and 30's that have left in the last two months.
    These are top performers moving on to other companies for better compensation.
    Times are a changing ... it use to be you would not see 3 people leave in a year much less two months.

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    It's not only compensation, but I'll the working environment as well.
    I go into many businesses every day and none have the terrible work enviroment we have at UPS.

    Maybe its time the good old boys club in the Ivory tower re-read the chapter on "how to treat employees like human beings". Things seem to be blowing up in their face more and more lately.

    I know some that have left, and others that are looking. It's easy math. Average compensation + below average working conditions + portable retirement plan + December sucks for your family every year until you retire = turnover.

    Taking from management is so engrained in UPS culture now that it's done by default. I wonder how many neglected to register and were defaulted to no spousal coverage and tobacco user status even though they have spousal coverage and non-tobacco user status this year.

    Evidently these youngsters aren't feeling the love.

    I doubt the decisions were based strictly on compensation, as realbrown pointed out. But I wasn't there ;)

    I can completely understand leaving. I hate to admit it, but given the opportunity to go full-time (if that would ever be an option) with UPS or move on to a better environment for better pay I'm leaving. Of course I'm in no position to leave now, but I see myself moving on by this time next year.

    Didn't Jim Casey say something to the effect that employees are the #1 asset in the company ??? Oh never mind it's now the stockholders

    If someone with a degree is willing to tolerate the level of abuse that they are subject to I'd wonder what exactly their degree is in.

    That is happening everywhere. Unfortunately, it is our best supervisors who leave. I think in a few years we will really be screwed when our experienced mgmt team retires.

    Our new CEO has been emphasizing the value of our people. I'm skeptical but we shall see. MIP talks, BS walks.

    According to one of our Management Committee members and her exact words "... Our Brand is our # One asset".
    I heard gasps in the audience when she said this. (along with WTF).

    Don't you believe, deep down, that this is the truth.
  15. Monkey Butt

    This is only one of several truths!

    I have a small truth; Of all the management people I know, granted this doesn't go much above a Division Mgr, I don't see any of them doing things that should require a collage degree. So, if you have a degree and don't see yourself going any higher than a DM, maybe you should quit.

    There are no operations positions at any level that require degrees to be successful. Outside of operations there are very few positions that require degrees to be successful, even in Atlanta. Typically all a degree does for you is put your resume in a different pile.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    A degree shows that you have the willingness to learn and the ability to be trained. It does not necessarily mean that you will do a better job that an otherwise equally qualified employee who does not have their degree.
