Hey everyone, I'm new. I've been hired to work at the UPS Hub in Orlando, FL. I've been there for two weeks now, and I've finally made it past the initial "sore and sick of it" feeling, and I'm actually at the point where I really like the job (loader) for what it is. My main reason for coming to work for UPS was because I wanted to make a career out of it, and this seemed like the right place. Anyways, I applied in early August for the position, but apparantly, they held back on hiring a lot of us until the seasonal period kicked in. I still said yes, although I had applied for the same job at FedEx a while after (since I didn't hear anything back from UPS in two months). As I said, I like the place and the potential, but I'm starting to see that being a seasonal worker is incredibly bad when it comes to seniority, status and everything in between. Not only that, but I've already been sent home when I was supposed to work, and I suspect it's because I'm a new hire and I have to take the bullet. I'm not a complainer when it comes to that -- I get it. But, my question is if this is worth it? I'll need a second job to work for a few days just to make ends meet, since this job doesn't pay well in the beginning. So, for a person who's here as a seasonal worker with some expected odds and cons against me, should I still stick it out? If FedEx calls, should I take the spot there (they pay more but I'd still be seasonal)? I know it's my choice, but I'm just hoping some of you have advice. The knowledge you guys have about UPS' long term potential and short term drawbacks outweighs mine, so I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.
