Hi all, just started at UPS. I was a seasonal for about a month then was asked to become permanent about two months ago. Here’s the deal, in those two months I’ve worked a total of 7 days. I was getting some hours as local sort here and there but that came to an end about three weeks ago. Here’s my question- Did you guys go through the same thing? Is this normal? What or where did you guys find work during this time? Basically I wake up around 6:30am and call the center, then they tell if I’m working or not. I call EVERY SINGLE DAY. I know I need to get a part time job to at least keep myself afloat. The problem is that in my area it’s either a factory or retail. Both of which are not at all flexible. I’m dirt broke. Burned through my savings paying bills. My sup told me I’d get more hours in Sept. because of fed ex dropping amazon. Well, I haven’t seen those hours. Then he told me UPS allows more hours in the month of October, well two days into Oct. and not a single day of driving. My training route is pretty stout and I have to know it. I was told to drive it on my time off but I don’t know how the heck I’m supposed to do that when I can hardly afford to buy gas. Anyways, I know I shouldn’t complain. What I’ve learned so far is to never trust your sup, or at least get your hopes up. I can’t keep doing this much longer, or I’ll be living in a box. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
