    Any present UPS employees feedback?

    Any folks posting here that are presently employed or have a close contact who can give an objective overview of peak season at an operational level? Many of us post on articles we read or trends we observe but don't have the feet on the ground perspective. Any folks from the hub operations, preload and driver group would be refreshing. Generally, it would seem it was a very good peak considering the weather, the inaccurate volume data from the very large shippers, the absurd promises those same shippers passed on to their customers putting us in the negative bulls eye position and the compressed shopping season. No doubt when your volume exceeds expectations by such a large number, total revenue has to be really elevated. Normally, with the fixed expenses pretty much controlled and if the helper group was effectively managed, the peak season while choppy should be financially rewarding. Any thoughts?
