    I am supposed to begin training as a feeder on road supervisor next week. I am currently a full time dispatch specialist and have been with UPS for 10 years. I have been asking what my salary is going to be and am being told they don't have the figures yet. I find it very odd to be offered a position without being given all of the info. Is this a normal practice? It is making me uneasy and I don't want to commit and then end up with some low ball figure. Any idea what salary I should expect and is there any ability to negotiate? I really feel I should have something in writing before officially accepting the position.

    Couple of questions..

    Do you already have your license or are you pursuing it?

    Have you been through DTS yet?

    I only ask because between your experience driving tractor trailers, and whether or not you have a degree plays a role here.

    It sounds like you're an oms getting a bump. Depending on how they feel about your experience, time with the company, and whether or not you have a degree will be the driving force in what you're offered. It's all about marketability. On road supervisors are a 20F position and if I'm not wrong the low end base salary is in the low-mid 70k range. Obviously with more experience that number goes up and this doesn't include MIP but I'm just trying to give you an idea based on what I've seen and who I know.

    I am a full time dispatch specialist. I will be going to DTS after I am trained and obtain my CDL. I have been with UPS for 10 years and I have a Bachelors in Business Administration. Thanks for the info!

    Don't forget the earning potential with MIP, I hear it's all the rage.

    Typically a month and a half salary extra bonus per year.
    You can take cash, buy UPS stock or use for your 401k.
    I normally used for 401k after UPS went public.

    How the hell does the company think that people who have never driven a tractor trailer are capable of supervising tractor trailer drivers? I've been doing the job for close to a decade and still learn new info all the time. There's no way UPS can make a competent supervisor in a few weeks of driver training and a few weeks of management training. No offense to the OP, but this is a position that should only be filled by people with on-road experience for the safety of our drivers and the general public!

    That's the way our feeder dept is run! No one left in management who has ever driven.

    Which is hopefully good news for those with brown blood - starting from the bottom, as a package handler or driver - AND degrees, which would be better news for ops...

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Why would any drivers be stupid enough to go into supervision? Total freak show dude really. I do, I have to admit in a teeny tiny way, feel bad for the supes and all the bs games they have to play with their idiot bosses lol. I could never do it, then again im not a sellout and refuse to play their games they play with their bosses. The game drivers play with the supes is nothing compared to the games they have to play that's for sure lol. Its a combination of DAYS OF OUR LIVES and KINDERGARDEN COP lmfao
