    Wondering if there are any "older", female package handlers out there and what advice you might have?

    As stated, I'm 44, in decent shape and interviewing for package handler on the sunrise shift. Am I crazy in thinking I can handle this? Is there any real advancement opportunities?

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!

    TY!

    bb58 is an "older" female package handler

    Maybe she can help on this one (after she shreds me)

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Go for it....but in all honesty...the older package handlers hired now for the Xmas season... most likely from what I've seen over the years...won't be called back in January.

    Ah, thanks for the insight BB58. This position has been posted for several months so I'm hoping it will be longer than that...

    If you are physically capable of working your tail off, you should do it. There is a lot of crap to put up with, but if you think UPS is a career you are interested in now is a good time for it. In my area they are so desperate for drivers and even feeder drivers that they are now looking at hiring feeder drivers straight from the part time ranks.

    It would be if you were younger...just telling you how it usually is. If you have a shot as a more permanent job somewhere else....I wouldn't turn it down. If not...go for it.

    Well, I'm in desperate need of a job, throwing my resume at everything. Guess I'll just go for it and see what happens.
