    aight y'all whats it take to move up. I keep hearing a four year degree in basket weaving or some other meaningless major is required. funny part is outside the center I get told its just a center manager to sign off on driving school to drive awhile as any SMART fulltime sup should do first. After that going full time is 90% center manager wanting you to, and the dm signing off and a willingness to relocate if necessary as long as you dont blow the mapp.

    By the way I already know in dreamland you bust your ass, prove you worth in a variety of circumstances, and get promoted strictly by merit. I also know more sups with no or irrelevant degrees like english and philosophy than I've met with industrial engineering or business management degrees. So what does it really take?

    That's because people with 'industrial engineering or business management degrees' have options.
    A 4 year degree is a must except for operations but then you are stuck in operations for your career most likely.
    A 4 year degree use to be required for operations (~10 years ago) but now UPS is having problems hiring/promoting into full-time operations management positions.

    ANOTHER disparaging remark about the feeder department! reminds me of an incident one time. I was sitting on the inbound phone, which is right by the path of people leaving the building. All the package car drivers walking out, looking like they took a shower with their uniforms on. I had to go by the shop. My a/c was so cold, it was causing frost to form on the inside of my windows. They had to let some Freon out so I wouldn't get frostbite.:biggrin:

    So basically your better off being average, not bad enough to piss the center manager off, not good enough he decides your too good to replace. be in the DM's home center to bring him coffee and donuts everyday. And if you hapen to be a black hispanic indian asain lesbian female the job is yours. Gee all these years I thought it was performance based lmao

    Lets freeze, no pension, inferior benefits, zero job security and bonuses based upon unattainable/impossible numbers. Why would anyone in their right mind take a full time operations management position in today's UPS?

    Some want it because of injuries, and having no other options outside of ups id imagine.

    Most on-roads do have some kind of ailment.....or brain

    Your original post had some assumptions, which aren't necessary to answer the first sentence.

    1) same function
    2) same geo area
    3) same business unit

    Remove these restrictions and the game can change dramatically.

    If moving up is important, do some research and make some calls, knock on some doors on your own time... Networking is important everywhere you go.
