A UPS driver who went viral on TikTok for explaining what it takes to work for the company has shared an update that includes his employer’s reaction.
TikToker Mykol Gummings (@mykol_gummings) shared a secondary video to tell his viewers that the CEO of United Parcel Service sent him a challenge coin while promoting the company’s high worker compensation.
“This is too stupid,” he says in the video. “The CEO of UPS just sent me a letter. It says: “Dear Mykol, I watched an awesome TikTok video where you share how well UPS drivers are compensated. Tell me the video made my day. I want to personally express my thanks to you for being a great brand ambassador. Thanks for helping spread the word about how UPS is a great place to work. As a small thank you, accept this UPS Challenge Coin, reserved for UPS users who go above and beyond.”
@mykol_gummings Young and blessed! 🤎🤎🤎.. I still want my check
While he appreciated the challenge coin, he said he’s still waiting for additional compensation for the video and tagged UPS in the caption.
“Shout out to UPS,” he says. “I still want my check.”
Some viewers felt that Gummings should have received additional compensation for advertising the company.
“They gave you a coin brush?” one commenter wrote. “If they don’t pay you a raise.”
“Hell, if it was my business and I’d be so grateful as to send him a bonus, not a freaking coin,” said another. “But it’s great that they showed appreciation for you.”
“My husband gives them free marketing and they replace him with a medal?” a third viewer added. “You deserve a raise.”
The Daily Dot has reached out to Gummings via Instagram direct message and to UPS directly via email, but has not received a response at the time of publication.
