  1. Got a full time cover bid a couple of weeks ago, checked my paycheck today and I'm at top rate. No progression, should I tell the company?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yeah because when they find out you're gonna have to pay it back.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Do you really want to start your career like that?

    Tell the truth---it is up to your mgt team if they want to make an issue out of it or not. (They will)

    You asked, you got the answer.

    Tell us how you feel in six months or so when you get caught up in a payroll audit.

    You absolutely have to tell them. They will eventually find out, and will garnish future checks to recover the overpayment.

    Oh, they'll find out. Might take em a while, but they will. You'll get fired for dishonesty and it will "stick". I've seen it happen. You know right from wrong. You know what you need to do.

    Totally quoted the wrong post. :/

  10. how are they going to terminate him for theft?
    Did he review,approve,and sign off on his OWN check?

    He knows he is being overpaid. He has to tell them. If they tell him not to worry about it he will have at least done the right thing.
  12. Thank you for the right replies, told my center manager as soon as I noticed. I just wanted to know what other upsers would do In same situation. Thanks. P.s. It was hard to tell.

    Uh, because he is getting money he is not entitled to and he also knows it does not belong to him. I suppose it wouldn't be theft if his bank gave him more money in his account and he spent it, right?
  16. RonBurgandy??????????

    RonBurgandy?????????? God is Great, beer is good , People are crazy.

    Quick story, back in the 80's my dad bought a mini van that was top of the line. Never got any bills for the monthly payment sent to him . Year after year went by, he thought he was in the clear. WRONG. Accounting WILL eventually find the error , it may take quite a while , but they will find it. Do what you will, but be warned, it's not free money. Your going to have to pay it back sooner or later.

    Integrity is the one thing that us as drivers have. Your sups or center manager or lp people have none. Let's don't ruin our reputation you did the right thing by telling them

    greengrenades To be the man, you gotta beat the man.

    They WILL find out. I had something similar happen to me, I ended up not having a check one week because I had to pay it back.
