Hey all, i was just wondering, out of curiousity, if there are many full time positions available (besides driving) after starting as a package handler and working however many months or years. I think iv heard of full time supervisor positions, and then other positions in management but what kinda jobs are there for starting out in the $20,000 to $30,000 range with benefits? Thanks for the info.

Full time combo guys make about 22.00 an hour in my hub. This is an 8 hour per day, 5 day a week job. Half the shift you do one task such as air driving, package handling, clerking, etc... Then the other half of your shift you typically do something different than you did the first half like car wash, clerking, package handling, small sort, etc...

I would love to get one of those jobs but the wait is over 5 years.

The trick to getting any fulltime inside job at UPS with your PT status without waiting for an eternity is to work at a hub. Small centers don't cut it. We have this one PT clerk at out center who wouldn't cut it as a driver and keeps on hoping that UPS will make his job full time one day. Not realizing if they did, it would be bid on by about a million billion drivers who wanted out of the daily grind. Nice person too, just doesn't get the "big picture."

We have none of these at my center. Only FT jobs are drivers and MGMT.

go through the MAPP process for a f/t specialist position.. or look for the non-union job postings by the HR office. Also in the HR office should be a listing of f/t union positions. Most are usually for driving although around here combo and in building f/t work also comes up. Not all combo jobs are great.. the last one was for PM air driving then doing the midnight sort. 6pm-4am with a two hour break, no wonder it keeps going up for bid
