Well my parents are hassling me about applying for a package handling job RIGHT NOW to work in the summer, however I don't think that's really necessary. From what I've read it sounds like they are in constant demand for handlers at larger facilities, where I would be. If I applied right now, I'd basically be working pretty soon wouldn't I? I'm going to be away for a while in June, so I figured I would just wait till I got back to apply. So how long between applying and first day of work is it usually? If I plan on starting in late June, there's no reason for me to apply now is there?
