I seen this posted and got a quick laugh at a few. I am sure we can add to this and get a few more laughs. Now and Then I've been at UPS a long time and you know what...things have changed. They've changed a lot. Sometimes things just happen and when they happen, UPS reacts differently today then they did back when I started. Here are a couple of examples: I completed my 30 days probation, when do I reach full pay? 1980 3 months 2007 30 months I hooked a mirror on a tree branch and cracked it. 1980 Write it up tonight. 2007 I meet the safety manager at the exact spot in half an hour, he takes pictures, I'm given a warning letter for an accident. I had a COD for $5000 cash only. 1980 I will carry $5000 cash in my pocket all day and turn it in tonight. 2007 I will carry a $5000 cashiers check in my pocket all day. A customer called in on me and claimed I was rude. 1980 My manager called them back and told them to use another carrier next time. (There are no other carriers.) 2007 I was written up, my job was threatened, the company believed the customer more than they believed me. My truck didn't get washed last night. 1980 Take it through the car wash, we never put a dirty truck out on the street. 2007 We don't wash the trucks every night, shut up and drive. I forgot to run a call tag. 1980 Do it tomorrow. 2007 I get written up. I asked if I could bring my family in to tour the building. 1980 My boss said it was OK, be careful, have fun. 2007 Don't even think about it, too risky, someone may get hurt or besides, my family could be a security threat. I bring back 20 stops. 1980 The manager says to keep quiet about it and do them tomorrow. 2007 Upper management is aware of it before the rooster crows and I'm is fired. I ask my manager for advice on a company related problem. 1980 We go in the office and have a heart to heart. 2007 He can't give me any advice until he checks with his boss who has to check with his boss also. I joined the 401k. 1980 UPS has a Thrift Plan for all employees and matches my contribution and puts in a percentage of the profits at the end of the year. 2007 UPS does not match hourly employee contributions to the 401k. Yes things have changed over the years at UPS. I'm sure you have a few examples too.
