    im a new hire for loading that's going through a 30 day traning period. I had sups watch me this whole week and I got hit with a heavy load and I had to break the jam a lot, which kinda left me a little intimidating. My sup told me I'm doing good since I reach my goal of 300 packages an hour but I was wondering if it is too late to swicth to unload.

    I couldn't even get past the lack of punctuation and capitalization, grammar and misspelling to even get to the content.

    Do you have a choice in the matter. Everyone else works as directed. Seriously, if you are doing that well loading you can expect to stay there. At least until you have some seniority under your belt.

    I believe the OP is working a hub sort. You know loading and unloading the great big trucks. We call them trailers and some are 53 feet long.

    You don't get to decide where you want to work...you go where your sup tells you...load, unload...that's management's call...not yours.

    Honestly you will want to stay loading unload is for the retards of the building. More opportunity as a loader and more hours.

    Unload is horrible, stay loading. Eventually you will get to load a trailer with an extendo and be set. I see way to many guys with back problems in unload.

    Short term goal = Move to preload :D

    Unload/loading is for suckers.

    Definitely not here. Twilight gets 6-7 hours, preload gets 4-5 hours.

    We get 4.5-6 hours...except during peak...us loaders get more hours than unload. Local sort barely gets 4...

    They said during peak to expect 8-9 hour days every day on preload. Twilight gets 6-8 hours.

    Plus driver helping will bring in big money since they raised it to $15 an hour.

    Preload is annoying and too much walking around. We need the best of the best on preload.
