I know what its like for it to be day 1 or 11 years 5 months and say 22 days at Fedex. As for myself, the job became some sort of monster. By the end of my service, I could not even recognize the place by which I was employed any longer. Instead of support and encouragement, raking couriers over the coals with unrealistic SPH goals became the focus. Let us not forget about wonderful passive disciplines issued out like BZ bucks (very long ago- outta boy). NOPE, no encouragement, no understanding, just go out there run your guts out for an unrealistic goal- everyday (105 degree heat, rain, sleet, snow). Sometime near the end the month- then summoned to a manager's office for a micro-scoped view over every minute of your last month employment. YEP. I know what its like. Hey, there is hope. Stay there, while you look and pursue another career path or go to school. As for the veterans in the industry, all I can say is hang in there (until the magic age). Oh, almost forgot. To the wonderful mgr, I worked under (transferred out of my former sta). I hope your new boss is understanding and reasonable to you (as you were not to me). I will not waste my time with insults. I will take the high road. ghost.
