    Congrats!!! Don't let any of these guys burst your balloon. The options are pretty thin out there in the working world. I wish the people who crap on UPS would just quit their jobs and go o work somewhere else.IF THE CAN FIND A JOB. Let them see what ts like to work day to day not knowing if they even have a job. Let them find out what its like to pay for their own benefits. IF they are even avalible . Let them find out what its like to work for little money. Let them find out what its like not to have a penison.
    I have my days but for the most part I like my job. Its my own business.They give me the truck and packages ( yeah a lot of them sometimes ) and I go about my day.I do a good job and don't make waves they leave me alone. Bitch and moan and and they make it hard on you.
    For those of you complainers out there. Quit if you don't like it. We don't need to hear your negative attitude. Be thankful you have a damn job. There are millions out there right now that would love your job!
    Yeah the work sucks sometimes. But I've been on the other side in many different jobs. I know what all of that is like. I have been through two layoffs and a plant closing. I was married , a new morage and a wife that was about to have a baby when UPS called.That was 1983. I retiring this Dec. I'm 61 years old and will be 62 when get done. It was the BEST move I have ever made.
    Sorry to sound like I'm standing on a soapbox but this crap gets old.
    So be happy. And don't let others get you down. Its a good company. They ask a lot but we get alot. I'm proud to say I work for UPS.

    Don't let the fire burn out, due to the countless attempts by management to douse your flame by making your job harder than it needs to be with their remarkable ability to manage.:peaceful:

    Theichii, congratulations on making full time. You are lucky in these current economic bad times. I haven't done Saturday Air in years, I remember it was easy work. I am giving up doing EAMs next Wednesday, I get to sleep normal hours again!

    I had the same response when I first went full-time. Now I wouldn't mind working saturdays now and then. I'm amazed that you went full-time this time of year. Are you driving every day or working double shifts inside sometimes?

    Try to keep in mind that most of us here that complain do it for theraputic reasons. Sometimes we need a place to come to simply to vent our frustrations. The BC is the perfect place. It's not that we hate UPS or our job, but it's nice to have somewhere to let loose with all our frustration. It feels nice sometimes to come on here and see that the problems you have are shared. For the most part, we all grateful for the things we have.
