    Part time sups sometimes get hired as part of the six to one ratio. Part time sups get benefits right away where teamsters get them after one year of employment. Management pays for their benefits and hourlys don't.

    These days the possibility of going from a PT manager to a FT driver position doesn't not happen very often in my area it's probably been over 10 years since that has happen.

    I've been with ups for 2 years as a customer service in the morning.

    But they are trying to offer me a pt management job. Not a sup job it's to deal with customers over the phone

    Sounds like an OMS job. Office Management Specialist. Deal with drivers and customers.

    Yes that is it .

    Just not sure if it's worth leaving the job I have now

    Why don't you shadow one of the OMS's in your building so you can get an idea of what it is that they do?

    A lot depends on your Center Management team. What is your job now?

    The job would be easier physically.

    But not sure if the health benefits were as good as the union.

    And I want an option if I ever want to drive ft I can.

    My kids are in preschool and 2nd grade so I'm good with pt for now

    Would mean more hours and maybe a jump in pay. I would guess the chance to go driving would be less. Maybe as a seasonal.

    Depends what you want yo do in the future. If you have aspirations of driving don't do it. You'll never be able to get back to the other side. Once you cross over there is no getting back. The PT sup grabbing a FT driving gig is one in a 1000. Doesn't happen

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    That always was an hourly job in my center.

    And highly sought after.

    Management does not pay ridiculous union fees.

    What they pay for health insurance is more than what we pay for union dues. Also if the spouse of a management person can get health insurance at there job than they can't be on UPS health insurance.

    Do we pay more in union dues then management pays for insurance

    No. It's not even close. Like others have said if you want to go FT driving eventually do not take that OMS job.
