    I just got hired at UPS for package handler and I wanted to know what clothes I should wear for the work. I know I need comfortable boots which I already have. I also know that I'm going to get dirty and not to wear anything to nice but what type of clothing should I wear like loose fitting shirts or a little more of a tighter shirt like work out clothes? And what kind of pants ?

    Anything that makes you comfortable, but like you said, nothing to nice. Today I wore shorts, a loose t-shirt and flannel.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yoga pants should not come in sizes larger than L. Also leggins are not pants.

    When I was working in the hub, I wore some dickies brand shorts and old t shirts. You'll figure it out after the first day...

    What shift are you working?

    I work preload - basically anywhere between 3:00 to 9:00 am.

    If the forecast is calling for lows above 40°, I wear shorts and a t-shirt while working.

    Anything below that, I'll wear jeans and t-shirt.

    Rarely, perhaps when the temps drop into the teens, do I wear long sleeves or anything heavier.

    Good socks are very important too.

    Within the first hour at work you will figure it out. Check out what others wear.

    Shorts and a tank top or a t shirt should be fine. Good boots and socks and you should be golden

    What I've read, sleeveless shirts aren't allowed. Also, no holes, no cutoff shorts.

    Dress for comfort. What you want to wear will depend on what they end up having you do. If youre loading package cars you're not going to get very cold. If you are unloading trailers you'll want to dress warmer.

    I'll have to find it. Know I have it somewhere. I'm sure it's one of those things that's not enforced unless a sup has a cork somewhere.
