    Because they throw you a huge party with prime rib, an open bar, they give you $10,000 cash, and at the end of the night everybody leaves with a turkey and a pair of ups socks.

    You officially become a union member and it would take an act of Congress to fire you. During the initial 30 days you can get let go for any reason...not anymore.

    Then they tell you all these great things like all the work your gonna have, the pay is great, so on. Then you realize it's all a smoke screen for be the bottom guy and you'll be laid off hoping you'll work at least one day or a couple days a week. Expect to be at their beckoning call when your laid off. You'll ask when you'll be working and they'll say just call in everyday and there should be a route for you. In reality there's not.

    Then comes Summer and you are working 50 to 60 hours a week. All for less money a week then a red circle PT.

    At this point they getting old, i believe the part timers would have to have senority dates pre 1982, look for people who limp around at the end of thier shifts.

    They make the old higher pay rate. Before part timers started getting screwed.

    The original 22.4 jobs you could say. Many were exception drivers too after thier pt shifts and ended up working lots of hours.

    Red circles were way before 22.4's. Way before 22.3's even. Or 22.2's

    HAHA the limpers are always the og’s
     
  18. There's nothing special about it all it means is that a trainer won't be down your throat anymore and you're expected to unload or load trucks faster than when you started you're still new in my opinion and UPS doesn't expect you to last longer than six months like most people I've been there 2 years which is a long time at UPS
