  1. How old do you have to be in order to start a package handler job at UPS?

    I started at 17 but it probably depends on state.

    17 or 18 depending on which state you live in.
     
  4. I think all you need right now is a pulse.

    I'm 17 and I'm one. Not the best job at all....unless you're in it to be a driver. I'm the youngest person in my entire hub lol.

    It's not meant to be a career.

    Would you consider working 2 PT jobs a career?

    So you would not consider an Art 22.3 job a career?

    That is one FT job, not two PT jobs.

    That's not what you asked.

    Yes, I would consider a 22.3 to be a career.

    Art. 22.3 combo job. 2 PT jobs combined to make one job. A career box monkey paid less then some PT jobs.

    I work 2 PT jobs currently. I plan on sticking with both for the foreseeable future. I like being PT in the hub because of the insurance mostly. I also work for my dad doing construction work a few days a week and make more doing that job actually. I don't see anything wrong with doing 2 PT jobs as a career.

    After 36 years is it a career? Then I work with quite a few career PTers.

    So when it is one FT job, it isn't two PT jobs anymore. Any FT job on the planet could be broken up into two PT jobs, if so desired.

    I'm not thinking that far ahead in my life, I'm more of a live life day by day kind of person honestly.

    Do you think that maybe that is UPS's plan? I hear of some PTers here that complain they are working full time hours in the hubs but are still classified as PT. Art 22.3's chased out after 8 hours and double shifting PTers to complete their jobs.

    A lot of the senior PT'ers don't want classified as FT because they make more PT then they would FT. But if you follow the posts, you will see what I was referring to.
