    So i use to work as a seasonal driver helper, and i guess my driver put in a good word for me and a few months later they called me about a permanent position in the warehouse, im guessing is either unloading the trailers or loading the trucks. I went for a walk-thru the HR lady wanted me to see what the job was about and to see if i was still interested after she said she just had to do a background check and that i should be hearing from her soon. Can any of yall help me with tips at workin in the warehouse loading trucks or unloading the trailers? Thanks! Nyc

    Practice your war cry and leave your soul at home if you value it.

    Full time loader/unloader? I dont think any of my co workers are FT. Good for you! Bring boots, water, and music and prepare to sweat and cuss.

    Welcome to UPS. Make sure to have good, comfortable work boots. Bring water, and remember that you will be sore the first couple of days. Try to learn fast and keep a pace you are comfortable and safe with. If are working somewhere cold bring layers as you will most likely want to shed a couple layers as the shift goes on. Best of luck.

    I would say the sort aisle is the best thing to do but since you stay in NYC or mentioned it. I'm guessing the sort aisle don't exist and it's run by automatic machines. Best bet is unloading trailers.

    We don't have warehouses, and just work at your own pace.

    Work as directed. If directions are unclear, don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Do your best to keep up with the work, wherever you may end up. Don't talk :censored2: and don't steal :censored2: and you'll probably have a job for life if you show up on time every day.

    Thanks man, im extremely happy and thankful for this opportunity. Im actually trying to be a driver sooner or later, thats where the money is at. And keep checking the website, or if u did seasonal driver's helper call HR and ask them how's it going.

    Lols you're no the only person I've heard saying that, somebody is eagerly waiting for you to retire so they can fill that spot up. I think is a great company, I've heard from a lot of drivers they can't wait to retire lol nothing wrong with that.

    I have no idea if it does, but when we did the walk thru it did looked like unloading the trailers is the easiest position, but it looks freakin tiring lols unloading them long trailers non stop. Thanks man!
