    I am college student and I live in Lowell,MA. So I hope they help me with the 3k thing a year.. :P
    However, I am doing bad at my current job due to college.. I don't sleep enough... you think because I am doing bad in my current job, I may not get hired at UPS?

    The recruiter said she'll call me at the end of the month for me to apply. So I may get hired.. but I am concern because I am doing bad at my job.. they might check that...=\ I think that's utter bull crap :P

    PS: I want to choose 1st shift because it's more convenient. Hopefully preloading is not hard. :P

    preloading is ball busting work just like everyother job at ups. unless you want to be a suit.

    HAHA LOL OOHHH!!!

    Don't worry about the sleep after a few days of unloading, you'll get plenty. Probably during class or while driving home.

    What you guys mean? i don't get it.....

    Don't do it? What?

    I see people laughing... what is this? :P

    OK FINE, I know it is hard.. but I have no other choice...

    preload is at 3:00-4:00 am to around 9 am.. which is good for a college student...

    You want me to stay at my current job which is like 10-11 hours a day? xcept weekends.

    Also, I work at a warehouse which requires a lot of walking , lifting , walking , lifting... for 10 god dang hours. lol

    there is a lot of lifting on the preload also. i think the twilight shift would be better for a college student. the hours are usually 6 to 10 so you won't have to get up at 2 or 3 in the moring thus you won't fall asleep in class.

    Don't worry about it Lugo. Some just have to make fun of others. Part time positions usually work out well for college students if you can get in. It is hard work though. Depending on the shifts available at your center, either nights or mornings are good. If you have late classes then try for the morning shift.

    I haven't preloaded, but there is no way it's more physical than loading.

    Lugo, both Upstate and Soy are right. Night sort is physically demanding, preload is mentally demanding. If you are good at the physical labor go for nite sort. If you are good with numbers then go with preload.

    I have done both and I personally think that preload is a harder job.

    Thanks, I will go with loading. :P 6:00 pm to ... :|
    4 hours is fine... :P I don't want to work for 5 hours unless there's a lot of work, I will wait.
    And you think the UPS Earn & Learn program will available in Lowell,MA? :P
    And will they still help me pay for college even if Financial aid is helping me?

    When you meet with HR they should be able to tell you all of that :) ... Everywhere is different so I really have no clue *shrug*

    If & when you get hired; please research other older threads on what to wear, and what not to bring to work.
