. . . discussing pros and cons of moving from package handler to supervisor. I am a recent seasonal hire. Management was suggested as an option at my package handler interview . . . which I declined. I am mainly doing this for the exercise and to clear my head from lots of fog in my other career. I am actually a Certified Financial Planner. Yes, I know that's really f'd up that I'm working the graveyard at a UPS warehouse. It is what it is. I think it would be a "no brainer" for me to be a supervisor if I were not prohibited from helping my team do the actual work. I'm sorry, but I just do not get the whole, "if you touch a box, we're going to file a grievance" thing. Where I come from, managers who are too important to do any of the work . . . are managers that everyone hates. I don't want to be hated. Another question I have is whether or not I'm going to piss people off if I do the Driver Helper training and work as a helper for a week or so . . . and then stop calling in. I'm mainly just interested in seeing more of the operation - really don't have time to take away from my business during the ordinary work-day. But I am very curious to learn as much as a I can. I really gotta say that I like the work. I'm truly at the bottom of the totem pole - unloader. The people I've met are good folks, and many are more self-satisfied (and more pleasant to work with/for) than many multi-millionaires to whom I've provided financial over the years.
