    I started in December of 2014 as a loader, getting paid at 10.35 an hour. Got a raise when I went to the sort isle and now I get paid 11.35.. That is the only raise I have gotten so far. A friend of mine, got hired on the same day, loaded just as long as me and is still employed with ups. He too went to the sort isle and got a dollar raise. The only problem is that he got a .70¢ raise after working 70 days and I didn't. I know it wasn't performance based. It's definitely not seniority based as we both started on the same day. I don't understand what happened.

    Is this something I should bring up to HR or am I wasting my time.
    Thanks for your replies.

    Hi, Jose.

    Do yourself a big favor and lose the selfie and change your screen name to something anonymous.

    Why are you complaining about a .35 pay rate difference between you and your friend? ** Change your avatar also **

    It's actually a .70 difference, and I don't care that there is a difference between me and him, I just want to be paid what I'm supposed to be getting paid.

    Good point. I'll ask more people if they got a raise after their 70 days of employment, before going to HR. He might be lying I guess.

    Never heard of a 70 day raise. Raises are yearly unitl you get past 4 years, then they happen Aug 1. Sounds like you are getting paid properly.

    It kind of is a big deal.

    You really don't want anybody to know who you really are. Rumor is, corporate sometimes monitors BC.

    Never the less, it is against the terms of service.

    I don't think it's actually Jose. I think it's his twin brother Jos-b (hose-b) disguising himself as Jose to protect his anonymity
