I was hired on at UPS as a pre-loader for peak season. My 1st interview was good and the guy said I could be on as soon as 1-2 weeks. Then a week later I had a 2nd, and they said 1-2 weeks. Then I had a THIRD interview, where they said it might not be after thxgiving. So I got a call 2 days later for orientation. After that, I was called at 4:48 am, 2 people called in sick and they needed me. So I came out. The super, the entire time, said "hurry up", "move faster". I was going 90 miles an hour. Boxes were a blur and I was dripping sweat. So at 8:30, I went home. I was called yet again, at the same time. So I got dressed like a fireman and sped out there. The super had the nuts to call my cell phone and say "where you at? Come on, hurry!" Ya, like I'm going to break the law to get there 3 mins early. So I get there and start unloading again. He told me "you gotta keep the rollers full at all times". Well he wanted to stack the rollers 3 boxes deep. Come to find out your not supposed to do that. No wonder I couldn't keep up. He wanted me to do 3x as much work! Come break time, he pulls me off to the side "listen, your not moving fast enough, if you don't pick up the pace, your being let go". He also said "You been here 2 days, I shouldn't have to hold your hand." So after break was over I started up again, and gave it my all, I was lifting boxes over 70 pounds, just so I wouldn't slow down. After the shift, he pulled me off again "sorry, but your just not a good fit for us". I have a friend who knows two people who worked for UPS in different states. They both were fired today for not being fast. One was told: "Since you were let go for not meeting goals, you cannot work for UPS anywhere anymore" Is UPS doing a national lay-off? 3 people let go in one day?? I think it was utter bull I got fired. I was expected to know everything in 2 days.
