    Well, today was my first day thrown into the fire. It was very tough, but I know I'll be able to hack it. I asked one guy how many years he's been a loader, he told me 4 years. I was just curious, what does a package handler typically make after 3 or 4 years seniority. How often do we get wage increases?

    Your contract will show you pay scales.

    Not much. As a part-timer you wont make decent money until about 10 years in. Double shifting is your best bet to make some cash.

    I'm over simplifying it, but here goes (for a loader):

    Hire/Seniority 8.50
    90 (calendar) Days 9.50
    12 Month 10.00
    24 Month 10.50
    36 Month 11.00
    48 Month [-]11.87[/-]11.99

    hmm, so after 48 months (hopefully I'm driving by than) do pay rates still increase, or does it flatline at $11.99 for loader?

    No. Having completed the 4 year wage progression, one would then get the general wage increase, aka contract raise(s). Over the 5 year span of this contract, wages increase by $4 (awarded in 6 month intervals this contract); plus the COLA language kicked in another .12, so far.
    But once again, I must point out I am oversimplifying things. For one thing, the current contract lapses/reopens for negotiations July 31, 2013; or earlier if both parties agree. In the recent past, inside part time employees in progression would get a slight bonus of being moved out of the progression schedule and start receiving the general wage increases.

    A little over 13 at 4 years but that includes my dollar for sorting.

    Just seeing how grueling loader is, why don't more people just take the sorter test? I worked small sort my first day, loader 2nd day. Small sort was heck of a lot easier. I'm gonna be loader probably, that's what my sup said, but I plan to take sorter test eventually unless u guys think its not worth it?

    I think it's time that you begin to think for yourself.

    Almost 7 years later you think you rate has been wrong basically since you started working at UPS.???

    Ask a person that got hired around the same time as you in your building what they are making hour and compare.

    One is doing skill work the other and you are not. That is where the $1.00 difference comes from.
