Good luck...it's a b!tch workin' there, especially at that shift!

Young Sk8 (
a NT'er
) is a driver for UPS so he knows all about...but overall I would say thayunloading & loading are gonna be hard for U at 1st but you'll probably get used to like w/ anything else

That must be a good workout. I don't know how it is nowadays but back in the day my bro told me there were quite a few accidents.

When I was 18, I worked there for about 2 months. Wasn't really all that bad, 4 hours went by pretty fast. But, I was working 3rd shift and I quit becauseof that, not because of the work being hard.

i worked there some years ago. i worked that same shift and it was hell on my back. the company works harder, not smarter. they would have one person loadingthree trucks simultaneously.

tips: buy a back brace, bend at the knees, look for new work.

The easiest part is the first week when you are in a class. After that its a bitc#. I think I lasted about 2 weeks, one of my guys lasted months trying to saveup for a sound system. If you are really trying just trying to move up start asking questions from your first day, my other guy moved up quick just by askingfor a different position after about 4 months. I would never go back to that place, you are better off working contstruction making 3x more than UPS and doingwhat I think is less work.

How do the drivers get back to the truck so fast. I sprint to the door whenever UPS rings the bell.




They always halfway down the street

Its just a reimbursement at the end of a semester with a C average

$1500 per semester and I think its a 2 semester limit.

that's not bad at all! especially cuz my tuition is only $3000 a semester at a university.

do you have to work there a year before you get the benefits or what?

Nope it starts as soon as you do. You gotta sign up for it within your first 30 days of that semester. It doesnt just automatically start when you get hired

You gotta do more than just get your foot in the door, homie. You gotta put in major work and climb up the ladder. AS SOON as it looks like there's a newopening available apply for it and stay on them about it until you get interviewed. Sometimes it takes 2 years to make a come up, but I worked with a guy wholoaded for 8 years when i just started.

its D average now and $2500 per sem.

but the catch is you have to be in management. supervisor, trainer.. etc.. ( it takes long, as far as the process goes, cuz they are some lazy bastards thatwill lose your paper work and not follow up on !*%%.)
