    Just happened to look at this week's paycheck today and saw:

    Due to scheduled maintenance, the View Paycheck and Personal Information features will be unavailable all day Friday, October 4, until Sunday, October 6, at approximately noon Eastern time.

    I'm paperless so I don't like it when I don't know...

    It's for the region consolidation. They have to update all of the payroll data and HR data behind the scenes which requires them to take the system down for a couple of days. No biggie.

    It doesn't take "days" to update a DB. I would :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2:can the entire IT dept of UPS. Their website design, functionality, and responsiveness is probably the worst I have seen.

    Is that why my password fails to work at random and I have to reset it?

    I haven't experienced that problem. But I can tell by their structure that the IT dept is staffed by a bunch of hacks with 20 yr old MCSEs.

    Do you live paycheck to paycheck ?? If not what's the big deal....I've had to deal shutdowns periodically in all sorts of instances (savings accts., checking accts.,IRA's,401k's, mutual funds, actively managed stock accts,..etc.) every account has experienced a shutdown for maintenance related issues, it's a cost associated w/ internet (online) banking

    ​Maybe so I can check the accuracy of my hours.. Have you ever thought about that?

    A shutdown? Uuuhhh NO. A few hours of unexpected downtime per month maybe. A couple days of downtime is called poor planning.

    most of us at the brown live paycheck to paycheck, what a dumb question

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Even if you get direct deposit you should still get a paper check that says void on it on Thursday.

    Not if you've elected to go paperless.

    For them, it does. It's not just a database's multiple systems so it's more than just running an update query. The last time we had a major consolidation in 2010, the timestamps on the records did show that it took a couple of days to update all of the records to new districts.
  18. jumpman23

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Just don't understand why you would go paperless that's all. Its all good though lol.
