    So I'm applying as a package handler, I went on the tour and 1st interview. Then the hr guy told me I had to go to a 2nd interview tomorrow. I showed up and he wasn't there. Then he called me and said your first day will be (day), come in wearing boots, have a nice weekend. And thats all he told me. So I'm kind of confused. Do I have to buy my own boots? I dont have a uniform and I dont know what to do. If anyone could help me that would be great.

    Just get boots and show up, package handlers don't have uniforms.

    If it's hot where you are at make sure you bring a cooler with water or Gatorade in it to make it through the day.

    Go to HR office a bit early, they will escort you to where the cornerstone training takes place when it is time.
     
  11. I wear different shoes because I'm a driver. You definitely want something comfortable. Buy them today and wear them over the weekend
