    As I read a previous discussion, I saw that OilerFan was going to become a new hire on the preload shift. I'm kind of in the same predicament as I wonder if I should career UPS, or just keep it as a job. What's different about my situation is that I have one semester of college left and I'll be graduating in December. When I asked HR during the interview process how long it would take before I can move into a higher position, they said you can test after 3 months. Now I see how bitter some of you are towards management, so I don't know if you can directly answer my question or not. Should I just stick it out with UPS, or just use my degree? (B.S. in Construction Management)

    P.S. - Remember that construction isn't doing too hot right now

    All comments are appreciated! :peaceful:

    Keep all your options open and hopefully when your opportunity comes at ups or elsewhere grab it.

    There is very little chance of getting promoted as PT SUP. It happens but rarely most PT SUP end up leaving because of broken promises from there bosses. I have a BS in Human factors and Psychology, I also have a commercial Helicopter license. But I make more money working as a Package car driver than I would if I found a job in those fields.

    You need to choose what you want to do with your life. Don't let someone else make that decision for you. You can work PT for a while at UPS and see how things work both on the management and Hourly side and decide what path you want to take with UPS if any.

    Good luck
