    I'm 3 days in and this is the job they assigned me. I can't keep up! Sometimes T=the entire belt is filled with packages and I can't move them around. My supe yells at me in front of everyone.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Every job has a learning curve. Give yourself 30 days and if you don't get any better ask to be reassigned.

    The last thing that you want to do is get stuck in a job that you don't like with our busy season quickly approaching.

    Do you have a question or just looking for sympathy?

    Pick up the light ones, stack them on the ones that are already on the right side, slide the heavy ones into the space you create. Best you can do.
    As for the sup - "okay boss" and don't even think about it, just do the best you can, safely.

    When he yells at you in front of everyone,

    how does that make you feel?

    Anytime your sup' yells, ask them an open ended question. Anything requiring more than a "yes" or "no" answer confuses them. Once confused, most sups will go away.

    I split and load two heavy PC's. Just takes time to learn the sort. You'll get it just be patient.

    Has never happened in our hub or at least I've never seen it. I'd love to meet the PT Sup who does this.

    You get better with time. Every manual labor task at UPS is simple yet difficult. It's hard and tiring and frustrating until eventually it isn't so bad anymore.

    Then file harassment grievance, along with a phone call to corporate HR. I know you simply forgot to put that in.

    What does a harassment grievance actually do though besides just having a target on your back from there on? Im not being a smart ass I actually don't know
