    You head into work, grab your clipboard and stand around. Occasionally your boss yells at you for something out of your control.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Go into work...swing by the office. Grab your clipboard, walkie-talkie, yellow safety vest and a tube of lube. Put on vest, apply lube liberally to rectal area, say something important sounding into the walkie-talkie...like "Hey John...what's your 20?" Then bend over and grab your ankles....the center manager will handle the rest!!

    Come to work. Change into your dirty jeans and t shirt. Start loading for the guys that call in or don't bother to call in. See how long you can get away with it before an hourly files on you.

    Then stay where you are at. You can always apply for a supervisor position later after you understand how things work.

    That $3/hr might help right now, but you'll be receiving sub-$.30 raises/year rather than the $0.70-$1.00 raises a year a bargaining unit member would have. PT Supervisors also don't receive a pension (like PT'ers do) and have far inferior health benefits.

    Also, chew on this: if they're asking guys with less than 3 months experience to go into supervision, why aren't the guys that have been there 5-10+ years jumping at it?

    upsbeernut Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes i dont.

    My observations of a part time preload sup is they are just a glorified loader. Speaking of loading, did anyone know that now they train the loaders with a video, that's a hands on experience.
