    My current position with UPS is a sorter, however I am looking to move up to a corporate accounting position. MAPP states that it is for part-time supervisors, Full-time supervisors and specialists. As I am neither of them wondering if anyone knows if I have to take MAPP in order to get a corporate office job.

    Thanks

    MAPP is for movement / promotion into management.

    If you are hourly of any sort, and want into UPS management, then you must pass MAPP from my knowledge.

    I am not sure of part time Sup, but a corporate office job could be admin also, without being management.

    Sort of a loaded question. Promtion into management does not guarentee a "corporate position".

    You could be sent to Alaska for a position or job in management.

    You might want to start with getting and accountant degree and become a CPA first than apply....

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    ...there may be entry level positions with the accounting department which do not require a degree. The OP could start there and get his degree on UPS' dime.

    Thanks for your answers. I will have my degree in two weeks, I think I will just apply for a Corporate position and wait to be told if I need to go through MAPP.
