Ok, I have been working at UPS for 3 weeks now. YES, it is hard work. I will say that I have not seen a lot of the "problems" that I have read here on the boards. My part-time sups are really great guys. Not one complaint. Co-workers are great as well .....always there to lend a hand. Most of the drivers are cool too, but there is one who Is a pain. Nothing is ever right. So i hope this continues. Now for the questions. Got my 2nd pay check. 1st pay check had a EMS tax of $52 (required by our county) and that showed up as a tax. Allthough I am a preloader I only got $8.50hr. I figured that was because the 1st week was mostly training. Got 2nd check and I am still only getting $8.50. Question is when will I get the $9.50 for skilled? Also, 2nd check pay check had the regular taxes, but it also had a section for deductions. 1) was for "WAGE ATT 1 75.96" and 2) was "WAGE ATTCH FEE 3.69 Is the 75.96 for the unuion fee? If not what is it for and also when will the unuion fee come out of the check? Thanks a lot guys!! Have a great weekend!
