That's a good response.

Yes it will be this way till you either leave UPS of retire. Learn to ignore it and shrug it off. Just know that it annoys the sup more when you do that. ;)
 
Do 2-3 trailers a night plus 1 air at the end of shift and you should be fine. Work safe and smart. Don't climb on freight. Don't put oversized on the belt. Need a break? Save 3-4 damages and send them down the belt. That will buy you 15 minutes. You know you're working too fast when you get all 53s and too slow if somebody is constantly helping you.

IMO
As long as you are putting forth a reasonable effort and you are following all methods as trained you are doing your job and you should be proud of the job you are doing.

In my experience UPS supervisors are always dissatisfied.

They will abuse workers who try to work too fast and cut corners and get rid of them when they are no longer any use to them.

Do not fall for the “sense of urgency” myth.

No one is required to work with anything more than a reasonable effort.

“ I’m working as fast as I can , please stop harassing me” ...just keep repeating that
Or another one of my favorites is “ I have OSHA on speed dial “

You want a toe? I can get you a toe.
Unload is one of the most physically demanding jobs at UPS. Be careful not to set a pace that is unreasonable.

Work hard but be reasonable.
Depends where you are but centers with Siemens extendos that go back into the truck unload is easy peasy

Be safe, but also don't be so slow that others who have been there forever have to pick up your slack. Your area works as a team or at least should. Nothing is worse then dealing with a newbie who obivously doesn't care about their job. If I'm putting six boxes on the belt to your one. It's going to be a problem.

I would love to take you out sometime. We can discuss what we will be doing our Masters thesis on. Nothing hotter than a fellow sesquipedalian who also kicks ass.

Didn't your mommy teach you not to go out with strangers you meet on the internet? But maybe you like a cold dark trunk. Lol
