    my question is can you get fired for misloads? 2nd question if you work in a area that has four heavy trucks and you are doing all you can to get the package to the right truck and you miss some packages that go down the belt and the supervisor is standing at other end can you get wrote up for failure to follow instruction for missing your work?

    First question--yes, but they do have to follow progressive discipline. It is highly unlikely that a preloader will be terminated for misloads--more often than not why will be transferred to another part of the morning sort.

    Second question--packages get by even the best preloaders--that's what the irreg cart is for.:wink2:

    so if packages get past the best preloaders can you get wrote up for this for failure to follow instructions?

    No. You may catch some grief but will only be written up if it becomes an issue.

    Having my coworkers stuff get past into my work area doesn't bother me much. Unless it is a ton of crap. Even then if they look swamped i will pull their stuff and leave it for them at the top i my work area. Non issue at my center unless egress gets to be a problem...

    Now when the sort starts sending all of another belts stuff down mine i get a little tiked cuz i have to get all of it around the other belts overhead slide and load my stuff.

    i was a terrible misloader and a preload belt-supe over a span of 2.5 years, i never saw a single person fired for misloads

    make you quit, transfer you, drive you crazy, sure, but not termination
