    Lmao. Like I care. Guess I’ll be running out of hours Friday morning this peak. Not my problem. “If you know anyone that is interested, better get them to work with you this peak otherwise it will be 300-400stops a day by yourself” nah that’s OK. Your job is to hire.

    gotta love it. Like I’m going to soil my undies and start crying. I couldn’t care less

    "Tell anybody you think might be interested!"

    We got the same message today.

    $10.20/hr is not going to cut it.

    I think its comical. Not complaining one bit. I think it’s hilarious. If you guys say it, it must be true. Sounds like a lot of Friday’s of being paid 35 an hour to jump. Can’t wait.

    Our HR lady started to cry at PCM when she begged us to find helpers..

    I mean they’re obv aiming for a certain demographic when they pull out a speech like that at a PCM. They have to know 99.9% of non runner gunner seasoned vets couldn’t care less. They’re aiming for the nail biters, hoping to ruffle a few feathers.

    If I knew 50 people that would take the job and show up every day I still wouldn’t send one their way. I get paid to drive the truck. You handle everything else. Not my job.

    I don't know, you're pretty fired up about something you don't seem to care about

    You mean, you wouldn't "sell" out your friends, at least 5 of them, in exchange for a free 40-inch TV?. That was the deal being floated in my former hub.

    I keep circling back to $10.20 am hour and coming up with zero recommends.

    That still blows my mind. In the Central they get paid 80% of driver starting pay for being a jumper

    helpers are useless out here on huge stretches of dirt roads, except to keep you company, conversation, and to share the misery together.

    Ran across a FedEx Ground driver yesterday who was already using a helper. He told me they were training them early for Peak. Why can't UPS be proactive instead of always behind and playing catch up.

    They probably could help their own cause if they didn't omit important info or provide misleading info to current employees.

    Two full weeks of folks crapped out at our hub because the HR folks gave out false info about the jobs.

    Why would I recommend that to a friend?
