    Sup told me that u have to unload a truck in the 800-1300 range. They timed me for two minutes and counted how many boxes I unloaded and multiplied it by 30. They say that's how many u unload in one hour. Is tho my local hubs rule or standard ups

    Sounds like a bunch of BS to me but it may just be your centers way of doing things. With me assuming your a female, (by your username) I'd bet there just trying to make it hard for you and get you to quit. Don't let them scare you. Find a comfortable pace your good with and unload packages to the best of your ability.

    Don't worry about the number but don't be lazy. Work at your own pace and follow the safety method the best you can.

    Just do your best. I never told anyone to be lazy. No matter what you do, it's never good enough. Especially for $10 bucks an hour

    If they want balls out, they can pay $25 a hour.

    Or $33.20/hr for a 60 year old unloader with close to 40 years seniority.

    PT sups will tell you anything that'll help their numbers on paper. Whatever pace is safe and sustainable for you on a daily basis. You make that rule.

    That said, was about an hour per when I unloaded. With the occasional smalls bag or large bulk blowout that'd extend the time and get the sups whining.

    Thank u guys for replies.
    I think management is a serious issue at this center. Like u advise, I unload as quickly and safely as possible without killing myself. And its every bit of 110 degrees plus the blue vest adds 5 degrees. Lol.. Thanks yall

    Just go in do your job and try to tune them out. Trust me, in many places they can't keep part time help.

    BS you are getting paid to make UPS a ton of money. Don't kill yourself by working too hard. They don't have your long term health in mind

    Definitely one of the thoughts to cling onto during that long first year. Your body and mind are like "WTF?!" while at the same time you're paid peanuts and get nothing else. Rare silver lining.

    Why should they? PTers are disposable labor.
