I have worked at FedEx Ground for about 8 months now, and have started to train the new hires. It isn't that hard, but there is some training required if you load or unload. I'm an unloader, and it really isn't that hard. All you have to do is unload the packages, have the barcode facing the person that is scaning them into the system, and use rollers to help you get the trailer, or truck unloader faster. Sounds simple enough right.... Well it isn't for my newest moron trainee.
He some how got the idea, that he doesn't have to use rollers, and puts the barcode anywhich way he wants. This slows down the scanner, which is me, and then yells, 'get the lead out,' like its your fault you're moving so slow. I try to calmly explain it, but he didn't pick up on it. The service manager for the unload end saw this, and moved him to a different line, where the boxes didn't have to be scanned. He put them on way to fast and wide on the belt, which quickly jamed them up.
How can one person screw such a simple job up so much after a week of training before they enter the wearhouse, which is more than enough time to get the basics down. Hopefully he either learns to do the job correctly, or gets moved to the load end, and i don't have to put up with him anymore.
Sorry the first entry is a rant, but i just had to say it to someone
