    question, been with the company since 2004, been a flow control specialist in Columbus oh since early 2008, within the next year plan to make headway into a feeder dispatch supervisor, my question is, will my length of service as a ft specialist affect my salary offer? Also do FT sups still receive a half month check in addition to MIP?

    Unless you make more than the entry level pay of a F/T Sup then it should have no effect.
    If you are promoted, they will most likely still give you a $150/month raise even if you already make more than the starting salary of a F/T Sup.

    No 1/2 month anymore.
    That was rolled into the base monthly salary which was then lowered for most UPS Management other than Operations management.

    I make 50700 right now although I'm not sure what entry level for f/t is, did you mean 1500 a month? 150 a month seems cheap even for ups lol

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    He said $150/month raise over what you are currently making.

    You appear to be doing a good job and have received raises that have put you above or right at entry level for non-ops entry level sup.
    For an operations level sup, you are probably below the entry level.
    Most current F/T employees will get a $150 - $300 bump max if promoted unless you are a driver.
    Most drivers, as I did, actually take a cut in pay when going into management (this is before MIP which is a bit of a crap shoot these days).
    Raises in your first 5 years of management will be better as you work up towards the mid-point of your pay bracket.

    Hello, I have also been with UPS since 2004 and been a part time supervisor since 2006. I am currently working in dispatch and will be starting as a full time dispatch
    specialist in January. I see that you are making 50700 after 4 years as a specialist andI am curious as to what your starting salary was as a specialist.

    Kind of off topic but what does a flow control specialist or dispatch specilist do? Currently I am stick in the corporate office working as a specialist and am really looking to get out of corporate. Trying to figure out my options without taking a paycut while still getting out of that awful building in Sandy Springs

    if your young and plan on staying and can handle lots of pressure, lots of paperwork, lots of holding people accountable for 3 to 5k a year more with the potential to move up, then go for it. If your happy now and enjoy your job to some people its not worth it. The mip is a joke these days. they just cheated us out of 1 years mip over the last 2 calendar years. They make up the percentages (Used to be based on profit) they take half and put it into a RSU account and if you leave your don't get it. Then after taxes you end up with a few thousand each year.

    Being a sup means they can move you around at their discretion. make your decision knowing as much info as you can.

    Almost every Manager and Director I know that got moved out to the districts and regions wants to get moved back to that "awful building in Sandy Springs". I think that tells you a lot about what it is like working anywhere else compared to the corporate office.
