A little background: I was a pt supervisor for 5 years in a 40k hub. I got a chance to drive and I loved it, but I opted to stay in management. I do not have a degree. I wanted to be a full time supervisor. After being passed over multiple times by supervisors that had done less but had a degree, I decided to pursue a position at ups freight. Things have been ok, but my heart is in small package. The story I'm being told is that they don't want any full time supervisors without degrees, period. Not through promotion or lateral moves because we are space blockers. (That was the term used) I am a space blocker.... Do not go into full time management without a degree. The old school attitude is gone. No one cares how you do, just that on a resume you look good. Thanks for letting me vent.
