I just started working as a Package Handler two weeks ago- and am doing real well. I am really enjoying the job, but I have reached a state of utmost confusion. The Human Resources Director and Supervisors are telling me what a great opportunity this is, and how much potential there is with UPS. But the workers around me are telling me how impossible it is to move up and how dismal the pay is. I am nineteen years old, currently going into my Sophomore year- as a Business Administration major. The Human Resources Director who hired me told me that the sky is the limit, that I can move up in the company while attaining my degree- then move up even more after attaining my degree. I truly believe him, and think that I will be able to allow my future family to live very comfortably if I continue with the company. However, the workers in my area exude a completely different feeling. They are disgruntled employees to say the least- and completely loathe the job. My philosophy on it is this- that UPS is a company where people can move up and succeed, but nothing is going to be handed to you. You have to want to move up, and you have to work real hard to do so. On my first full night- I loaded over 450 packages an hour and impressed the supervisors enough so they moved me to a much more difficult trailor. I was hoping you guys would be able to shine some light on the career potential UPS offers, because I am really excited by this company and everything they offer after my first two weeks. Thanks.
