Hello Brown Cafe! Long time lurker here, but I've finally made an account! I figured it was time to celebrate because I'm finally in the union. It's been a pretty long journey for me to get into UPS. I applied years ago, but didn't receive a call back for about 3 months and accepted another job in that time frame. Then I started late in this most recent peak season, and got laid off in January, but they bought me back, and a short time ago I gained seniority. I'm now doing the pre-load thing in NJ, and I'm just trying to get into the feeders or package car as soon as possible. The wait to one of these Full time positions isn't nearly as long as I've read on here from people in other parts of the country, so that's a plus. But I just wanted to say hey to my fellow upsers, and let you guys know I've finally arrived, ANY TIPS OR ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! Enjoy your weekend guys!
