    hello all who may read this. So here's my situation. I was hired as a sorter at the beginning of December as a seasonal employee. I worked hard and I am still currently working due to the fact that I was offered to stay because I guess they forgot that I go back to school on janurary 22nd. What I need help from you guys is suggestions. How should I go about leaving the company. I love it but I need to focus more on school. Yeah the money's great but I need an education right now. If I put my two weeks in on this coming Monday will they fire me since I'm still not apart of the union. Or will they allow me to work until I go back to school. Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks!

    Is it possible to work around school? Use the tuition reimbursement to your advantage if possible..

    Give your notice and tell your sup the last day you can work. Your education is far more important then sorting boxes part time for $10/hr.

    If I want to work this coming week and we get paid weekly, would I be allowed to go pick up my check whenever I want or do they hold that from you since you quit? Sorry if my questions are dumb. Like I said, I have never had to quit a job before.

    Community college? Why can't you work there and go to school?

    Unless you were already rehired as permanent your tenure with the company ends January 15th whether you want it to or not. You don't have 2 weeks left to give 2 weeks notice, you have 7 days at most.

    You're seasonal. Did you reapply and sign paperwork very recently to be employed as a permanent part time employee? If the answer is no then you will be released by January 15th, those are the terms of seasonal employment.

    Lucky
    Tell your boss what day you are going back to school and leave it to them to decide.
    Yes, you will be able to get your check.

    Time management is a skill set that is important in real life. Time to man up, this ain't high school anymore.

    If you tell you Sup that you are leaving in two weeks there a strong possibility that he may double your pay right on the spot....or show you the door. Life can be a roll of the dice like that.

    A degree doesn't guarantee you a job. It seems like they're willing to keep you. Make book & have something to fall back on if school doesn't work out. Once you quit UPS you're not coming back

    I have seen people come back several times. One was a driver who quit and a couple months later came back to his same PT job before driving.
