Preload PT Supervisor
What constitues someone being allowed to take a leave of absensce ? Can it be school related, for example, studying abroad ? Or is it only allowed if you break a leg or have a heart attack or something ?
I've seen numerous folks quit in my building when they are denied a few weeks off or something when they ask.. Most are college kids who had plans during the summer and don't have the seniority to get vacation when they want (if they even have vacation built up).
If I'm not mistaken a leave of absence is covered under the FMLA and medical purposes concerning your own health. I do not think education is covered at all. Contact HR to make certain.
College kids can make more at the school bookstore on campus and not have management that constantly tells them how bad the suck etc..for 8.50 an hour.
Thats what my youngest son is doing, working in his college bookstore. The other son works producing shows at his college TV station. Neither one of them would consider working for UPS. I'm happy about that.
Its sad to see this. I've been told by old school drivers that this is one of the reasons why the part time work force in recent years has gone to hell. It isn't attracting college kids that have half a brain and possibly, just maybe, care about the company. In my building, the new hires are bottom the barrel who are very poor selections. I think we just take whoever applies! College kids can make more at the school bookstore on campus and not have management that constantly tells them how bad the suck etc..for 8.50 an hour.
...keep sacrificing the unborn.
point to the thread, I think you're screwed unless you are taking FMLA or quit.
It has been my long held opinion that most college students aren't working at UP$ for a living, Mom and Dad supply that. They are working for beer money.
The decision to hire students doesn't come from the HR person that goes to the job fairs at schools, it comes from way higher than that. The question is why? The answer is told trough the number of degreed people in higher management that started PT, drove for 30 days and took the fast lane using a degree that UP$ needed filled. It's like finding the green M&M in a bag of red ones.
