    Seems to be some disconnect between coordinators/supervisors to drivers, driver helpers in the field

    Current Employee - Seasonal Driver Helper in Portland, OR
    Current Employee - Seasonal Driver Helper in Portland, OR

    I have been working at UPS part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very thorough orientation for the seasonal driver helpers, especially regarding safety and honesty. The HR staff and training supervisors friendly and down-to-earth types. Well-organized orientation. Got all my questions answered.

    Cons

    When it came to actually starting the job, there were some discrepancies between what was said in the orientation vs. what happened in the field. Here are some examples:

    On the first day, a driver contacted me to tell me when and where to meet him. I was told the coordinator would contact me the first day to tell me where to report for work.

    Second, the driver did not have my uniform on the truck as I was told. He had to loan me his jacket that day.

    Third, the driver thought I had completed DIAD training (the hand-helds used to scan packages and get signatures). He was told driver helpers would know what to do. He was frustrated I was not trained on it. Because of time constraints, we worked around this and he scanned packages for me to just deliver.

    The second day on the job, I had a different driver. I was told in orientation I would be paired with one driver. Anyway, this driver ended up having my uniform. Again, we worked around the DIAD system due to time constraints. This driver was unpleasant to work with and she wanted me to jog through wet leaves and on slippery residential staircases because "I need to hustle". She was incredibly impatient with me for someone being only the 2nd day on the job. I almost wanted to end my assignment that day. I ended up reporting this incident to a supervisor later because the jogging around on slippery surfaces was in direct violation of the safety procedures and the supervisor made it clear that I am never to compromise my safety. He appreciated my report. On the third day of work, I was paired with the driver from my first day, which was a relief.

    Fourth day on the job, I was paired with yet ANOTHER different driver. This time, I got a patient, grounded person who took the time to train me on the DIAD. He was good to work with. I addressed the driver/helper pairing discrepancy with him and he didn't know what happened but said he and I will be working together for the duration of the season. Thank goodness. I hope this will be the case as it's been a frustrating start!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See my notes above. The communication lines between the trainers in orientation and the coordinators/supervisors/drivers in the field needs to be fixed, clarified. This is already a high-pressure environment and we needn't add confusion to the drivers and their helpers during this peak season.
