    Ok, since Im new around here I thought I would try and bring myself up to speed a bit faster by asking what part of the country you all work in and what do you for UPS (hub,feeders,corporate etc.)

    Ill start, I work in the the Richmond, VA hub. Been there 3 years this past August, I was an unloader for a year then a sorter for a year and for the last year Ive been doing the SurePost. Most recently however I just got offered a position as an ODC clerk and will be starting that on monday. Really looking foward to that as it will be an excellent change of pace right here before the holiday season.

    Miami south center, really small building. Only has 7 unload doors, 6 of which we only use. Been there for 4 years this past June. Started off unloading, then to loading, then sorter, now I'm a clerk who pretty much does everything (data correction, over goods, damages, repacks, tape ups, sure post, and whatever else needs to be done or cleaned up after the sort. Needless to say I go over 5 almost everyday yet management or my supervisor has yet to say anything to me. I guess as long as the building is clean by the time I leave, incase any big wigs stop by for a visit, then they don't mind.

    Pre-load loader/cover driver in central Florida. Been with the company for 7 years this month. Worked on midnight for about 6.5 years, 6+ of that as a pick-off.

    Went to driving school 3 times (passed the first time but for some reason they sent me again a couple years later and I failed because I couldn't make it on the last day due to a family emergency), the last of which was August of 2011. I figured transferring to pre-load would get me driving sooner rather then wasting away on the midnight shift. I'm a couple of weeks away from my qualification and once I get it I'm moving to twilight which is a shift that does next to nothing in my building. I don't mind busting my ass on pre-load but I see no reason to do that much work for the same pay I could be making on the twilight shift.
