SAN ANGELO, TX — In a bizarre plot twist, UPS is texting and emailing the 10 or so workers who showed up Monday for their first day of work asking each why he or she did not show up. The new hires at UPS were told to be at the San Angelo UPS Customer Center on Porter Henderson Dr. At 7:50 a.m. Monday morning. When the workers arrived, they were told there were no jobs because the jobs had been outsourced.
“They told us that corporate had outsourced the delivery of extra packages to another company but still hired us without telling the San Angelo office,” said a worker tricked by the corporate HR scheme. The emails came from UPS’s San Antonio office.
One would-be worker had paid for an Uber to arrive at work on time. She was not reimbursed for showing up at a fake job. Incoming County Judge Lane Carter offered to reimburse her for her Uber out of his own pocket even though the county has nothing to do with the inept human resources efforts of UPS.
Tuesday evening, the 10 victims began receiving emails and texts from UPS asking about their first day on the job.
“We’re sorry to see that you missed your first scheduled work day at UPS. Reply "YES" with your phone number to reschedule your first day. We’ll contact you to review the next steps,” UPS stated in an email to its victims.
One victim told us he received two texts and an email Monday evening. One even asked the victim to fill out a survey. “They sent another text asking basically the same question after I replied that I was no longer interested in working for them,” a victim told us.
