    What's the best route to go unload ? Or preload ? Also what are the hours of them shifts I have a full time job now working 6-6 and anyone know the starting rate ? And how long should I expect to be a pter before I can go driving FT

    your job at UPS doesn't matter. It's all seniority based building wide. Sign all bids that come up.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Unless the building you're applying to has a midnight sort....your FT job hours may not work well with a local sort or preload position.

    As far as pay, Idk if it is the same everywhere but I just started and get $10 per hour, after 30 working days I was told to notify someone and I will go up to $11.

    I work in central PA by the way.

    Doesn't really sound like any sorts would work out for you with your hours being 6 to 6. Maybe midnight but you will probably have to sleep in shifts. Going FT is different for every hub. It took me 12 years.

    Yeah, that's not central PA. HARPA is central PA.

    Idk, I live pretty close to the center of Pennsylvania. I was always under the impression that Blair county was central PA. I was not looking to be super specific, I have no idea what HARPA is though.

    My local news station has been misleading me for years, advertising the website titled "We are central PA"
