    How long do you have to be working for ups before u can transfer to Pre-load ? I was told 6 months, is that true ?

    That varies by location and by the type of work you are doing. If you tell us which department - IS, TSG, SCS, etc. - and where - Windward, Ramsey, Mahwah, Atlanta, etc. - we can give you a better idea of how quickly you can get to Preload.

    I see that BROWN4LIFE15 has already answered for the IS+Ramsey combination, which apparently has a fast track to Preload. Or Carwash.

    Best way to the preload is to exit the sort isle, follow the packages as they flow to the package car boxline, past the PAS operator, until you arrive at a package car. You are then in the preload.

    Since preload work no longer requires any training, you could probably join HR or F&A as well....

    Go UPS!

    You didn't tell us why you wanted the preload. If it is for school or another parttime job, just put in a request to go preload. Also talk to a fulltime supe in the preload and tell him that you have put in your request.
    My guess is you will have a fairly easy time of it.

    Preload is hell... :devil3: We have people on preload who want to go to PM...

    I am convinced they do nothing but eat pizzas EVERY night... We find pizza boxes all the time, kinda hard to hide 10 large pizza boxes in the breakroom... Then we get in out package cars, there are four or five packages that DID NOT GO OUTBOUND for other states and over 70's... Package cars are a foot away from the dock...
    :angry:

    The training is being able to stack it out while not blocking an egress and being hit with 75 paper boxes all marked 1 of 1...

    Before PAS we had 50 less packages and twice as much time to load... Now we have double or triple the packages and do it in half the time...

    I wonder why we have misloads with all this work crammed down out throat...
