I’m a preloader and I have been working 3 months. I’m pretty miserable where I’m at right now. I really sucked at loading at first but I’m getting a lot better and a lot quicker and gaining respect. Still, there’s so many reasons why I hate being a preloader I’m not even gonna get into it. The primary reason though, is not being able to sleep through the night, no matter how early I go to bed. My building has a 12-5pm day sort. I HAVE to get on this shift. I can’t get a straight answer from anyone on how to get it or how long it will take. Some people say 6 months, some people say at least a year or longer. If can’t get on the day shift by March/April I may quit and get a new job (my friend works for delta and her boss could hook me up). But I do want to work for UPS, just not preloading, midnight, or twilight. For what it’s worth, I am in the union. I also have another job but it’s as flexible as I need it to be, so day shift would not interfere with it. Somebody help me out here, I need a lot more info than what I’m getting??
