This is less of a question as it is an observation. I have been with UPS only a short while as a pre loader (hired right before peak as a temp). Before being hired I heard horrible things about working at UPS. How difficult it is to work, how everyone s on you... etc. I worked at the end of the belt with three trucks. I often got behind and my supervisor would come help me out. As time went on I got a little better. Maybe a misload per day on average, which I know is not good. After peak my trucks were no longer there and I had to call in for work. Then I was told that some guys were leaving so there was a year round opportunity, but I had to take 4 cars at the end of a belt. I came in everyday and literally gave it my all, and got my ass kicked every day. Boxes going past me, misloads, one driver complaint. I really really wanted this job for the health insurance for my family. I make it a point to be cordial and friendly to all my supervisors and co workers. I apologize to my drivers for my misloads, I honestly do not want to add to their day. Now I'm being moved again to another spot to split the belt and 2 cars. The problem is I'm short, and cannot reach across the belt so inevitably boxes get by me. That spot is only temporary so I do not know if I will have a job again in a couple weeks. I've put my wife and family through an emotional roller coaster with this. In the end I know that I gave it my best and despite my best efforts I guess its not good enough. I truly respect you guys that are able to do this job and make it look easy and have been doing it for years. I've worked a lot of physically demanding jobs, but this one takes the cake. Driver who read this, I hope that you know or remember (if you were one a preloader) how demanding this job is. I hope that somehow I get better at the job and they keep me. At this point that looks doubtful. I've been looking at threads on tips on how to perform better, increase speed, etc. You guys have earned my respect.
