    Hi. I'm hoping to get a little detail on the duties and challenges of the preload supervisor position. I've been invited to a "walk through" next week and to take a 1 hour test. This also a part time position if that makes a difference. I have no experience with UPS and the job description doesn't provide much. I don't want to waste their time or mine or have a look of shock on my face during that walk through. :)

    Thanks and I hope to become a regular forum contributor soon!

    I stumbled onto the "UPS Partners" forum (not exactly where I'd expect to find sup threads but hey) and have learned a bit about the apparently thankless and slave driving position.

    What about this 1 hour test? psychological, math, logistics or what?

    I'm former career military and will likely find this interesting. That could be good or bad. :) Thanks.

    The "test" is just a litmus test to see if you give consistent answers. I'm the most inconsistent fool on earth and passed/was successful and offered a PT sup job a decade ago, FWIW. Hope that helps. :)

    Everyone is free to speak their mind.Everyone has their own opinions.
    Some of us have had bad experiences at ups. Part time sups are generally
    paid very little to do a next to impossible job.The walk through should be a heads up
    for you as they explain how you should oversee the preload and have it done by 09:00.
    I suggest you see if google is hiring instead.

    Run, run far away from the potential sup job. To give you an idea of the challenges of this would be the eqivalent of trying to run a race wearing high heels, a really tight skirt, with a very long broom handle shoved up a specific orifice of your body. But what do I know? Do what you want.

    It's a great job, that's why UPS is hiring right off the street. UPS is the most generous company on earth, after all.
