So here it goes, I have been working at Ups for just under a year now and I have been thinking more recently about becoming a PT supervisor, for many reasons. My plan after starting at ups was to stay until I finish school, then use my degree to get a job in my field etc etc, so of course I only planned on being here a few years at most. From the day I started at ups(as a loader) I have worked my ass off, I am a hard worker. I was doing somewhere around 600PPH at the end of my first month(huge mistake, right?), I have earned a few employee of the month awards(if you want to call them that) etc etc. Since about last September after I learned how to pick off(and become a damn good one), that is all I have wanted to do. However long story short, being that I am a apparently such a good loader, they do not want to move me. So I have done picking off during this past peak season and have been told that I will get about at least a months worth of pick off time this summer when the pick off(s) on my belt take their vacations(they have 5 weeks each). My pt supervisor told me that he is trying to talk to his ft sup about getting me to be a permanent pick off somewhere in the hub, after the summer. One sup already shot that idea down and I dont see the other going along with the idea either. Frankly what it comes down to is, supervisors covering their own asses(obviously). So with that said I don't see myself being the pick off(which is all I want at this point) anywhere, anytime soon. So it's not worth it for me to keep working hard, only to get shut down. What it comes down to for me is, the union(which is great btw), allows people to be lazy. That isn't for me. I am a hard worker, and being a part of the union is like someone telling me "you can work as fast as you want, but there is really no point", since they can't tell you how fast to work. Therefore why should I do the work of two people, when I get paid probably the least amount hourly on my belt. Makes no sense right? I am not trying to turn this into a union rant, trust me..I love the union. However my scenario is that at this point, I need more. I only work about 20 hours a week which only earns me somewhere in the range of $175/week. That is not enough for me. I need a job where I can get around 30 hours a week, which would be a great balance while I attend school full-time. So the reasons I think a supervisor position would be good for me are because, I could remain at ups(short term..a few years) and still get TA(which is the only reason I am here), I could make the little extra money that is key to me right now and get close to 30 hours a week, well at least around 27ish(I think?) which is close enough. I am very torn about what to do here. I come into/leave work everyday pretty frustrated because I work for a LAZY supervisor, who expects me to work hard for him in return and all I can think to myself is "I could be doing that job 10 times better than he could" (of course everything looks easy from the outside though right). Many people I work with have told me I would make a good supervisor there. I tend to agree with them, naturally, because I feel like no matter what I work hard. I just don't know what to do anymore..I have only been at ups for a year and it's suddenly and quickly turning into a job I HATE, just because of what I am surrounded by..... advice?
