    I was curious if anyone had any insight about the ups :) and downs for transitioning from a potential, union job to non?

    I enjoy the work, however I don't see myself as too longterm with the company, nor do I need any college money, or wish to be a driver.

    Based on what you stated, PT Sup looks fine

    And the minions will be ugly and not supportive.
     
  5. Maybe Dave should apply for the job?

    I enjoy the workout I get from unload and the workers are all pretty great.
    The job security with the union seems wonderful, but I'm not sure how long I can go without my body getting wrecked, in the long run.
    Anyone know pay variance, etc?

    They like you probably because you are responsible and have the right personality to be a trainer
    They have a hard time getting good leaders to go into pt supervision

    Either you are the very best worker they have ever seen in your building, or no one else wants the job.

    Figure it out.
