    For the past 2 years or so I have been working as a Specialist in the Corporate Office and I just don't think it’s for me. I hate sitting in a cube for 8 hours a day with no windows and having to deal with the Corporate - sucking up BS.

    Ideally I would like a job where I am on the road (locally around town) for 4-5 hours a day and then have desk work the other 3 hours a day. Does anyone know any jobs like this at UPS. Overall I beleive UPS is a pretty good company to work for and offers decent benefits but I just don't beleive am the person that can sit at a desk all day. Also, even though the above description might fit, I am not looking to go into Sales.

    I have heard from a couple buddies that there are jobs in occupational and health (I think thats what its called) department that just go to center to center and do inspections. I believe something like that would be perfect for me.

    I know I am rambling but I guess my main question is, why are there no district jobs posted on the internal job board at upsers.com. I know they have had a freeze on hiring the past few weeks but I have been looking for the past 9 months or so and the amount of district jobs were always limited. Is there kind of some intra-district place where jobs are offered before it hits the internal job board at upsers.com?

    Why don't you see if their is auditor position available. You can travel the country and audit UPS operations.

    ReturntoSender, that sounds pretty interesting as long as I can spend the weekends at home, I dont mind traveling during the week.

    But this is to my point, I have never seen an auditor posistion posted to the upser.com internal job board. Is there somewhere else where these jobs are posted?

    I would suggest that you ask your manager to help you get assigned to the Georgia district in whatever job they have available. Then, once you're in the district, you can see what is available for your development. I'm sure someone in your department would help you get to the district. It would also be extremely instructional, because you would see how UPS works on the front line - dealing with people and packages. I hope you're successful in moving from corporate to a district assignment.

    I don't know how you get an auditor's position. I don't believe you will be home on the weekends cause you will be always on the move.
