    He forgot to mention,if you make it through the hazing,the initiation,and the ritual,your continuing internship will be decided when your production levels are equal or better than your immediate management teams standards.:wink2:

    Welcome to BC! Usually there is a probationary 30 days after which your "company" seniority date will retro back to your first non peak day.
    Find your shop steward there and introduce yourself and ask that same first question and see if I was close in your case. Stay positive!

    Welcome to the BC Chris. Keep your positive attitude, don't let Brown get you down. Your first 30 days will be tough. You will be told at some point you are not doing the job well enough, no matter how well you are doing. Part of the game. Just ask your sup how you can improve, and just do your best. Again keep a good attitude and you will do just fine. Speak(and listen)to the seasoned co-workers(non-management) if you can, they will be most helpful as to how the job is done. Best of wishes and good luck.

    YEH!!!! Fresh meat. Finding someone that won't feed you a line of crap will be hard. Most of your questions can be answered here but beware that UPS has many different ways of doing things and what applies to one center -won't to another. Get to know your Union steward - they are there to help you. Develop a thick skin and above all else have a sense of humor. Laughing will help keep you from going insane. Contrary to what you may read on here- it isn't all bad at UPS. Paydays and Fridays are good.
