    Began my first shift at 4am this morning unloading trailers. Gotta say, I have new respect for you all who grind each day at the center.

    Lt. Aldo Raine Sound good?

    Preload is the hardest shift to work as a part timer. Set two alarm clocks minimum.

    Preload is one of the easiest jobs at UPS.

    Our preload manager can fix that for you. Also the least appreciated job at UPS.

    You might be right, I slept through my shift this morning because I accidentally set my alarm for 3 pm. So, there's that.

    I've only done local sort so far. Anyone know how that compared to preload?

    Most of the people at our center prefer local sort over preload.

    just think of it like a paid workout and it seriously becomes easy

    local sort is a joke in comparison to preload

    way less stressful, way easier

    Wow, that's :censored2:ing stupid. For 10.20 an hour? I mean, I can handle loading a trailer, don't get me wrong, but... I feel like every other 10 dollar an hour job I turned down would have been way easier. I only took this job to go driving. They told me it would be a month and a half, 3 weeks ago. In three weeks, I'm telling them that if I'm not driving at least 2 days a week from then on, they can shove it.

    Package handlers should get 12 to 14 an hour. Part timers should strike over this.

    Seriously do yourself a favor and quit. Some guys wait 10 years to drive and your princess ass can't wait 2 months.


    There is no way you can hack it as a driver with that attitude.
