    Just started at the Portland Hub as a package handler. What did I get myself into...?

    I just met our Senior Manager's new boss yesterday. He started as a package handler while in college.

    Low wages, hard work, typically an a-hole boss, no realistic opportunity for FT employment, and no respect on the job.

    But thanks to a union drive in Massachusetts you now have paid holidays and health insurance.

    I work as a loader. It is not as bad as I thought it would be. Definitely no fun though!
