Holy cow! I never knew this site existed!!! I'm here to complain a little. After 8 years of working pre-load and night-shift, my husband has finally worked his way up to being a driver. Sort of. He's still laid off on the slow months, of course. But he's stuck on the satellite route. No one at the UPS center wants that route because you obviously drive in your own personal vehicle 1 hour north of the center. He don't start until 9:30 and doesn't get home 'til 9:00. I've heard that in other areas they've cancelled this satellite route deal but apparently not here. Are they all over the US still? By the time the other UPS driver gets up there to load my husband's truck and all the other expenses of this - I don't know how in the world they can really save that much money. But I guess a nickel is a nickel to UPS?? I thought my husband said that they are supposed to reimburse your fuel but there is no way or reason to try to even fight it to get it because they won't. Maybe they don't at all - period - and he had that wrong. You can never get a real answer out of management here. But the gas is real expensive for us. Does anyone have any info on these routes? What we may be able to do to get reimbursement? Or just to complain with me?? Don't get me wrong... UPS has provided a lot for us! But we just want him to drive out of the center. Soon he should be bumped up hopefully and he'll get off that route. Hopefully!!! Thanks!
