Back in November, I started working for UPS as a driver's helper, and I did a good job (my driver loved me, worked me full-time for the full-route every day, and is happy to recommend me for future jobs inside UPS). And as expected, my final day on the job was December 24th. On Monday of this week I turned in my browns at the guard shack and picked up my final paycheck. And then it is time to start calling human resources and checking online for openings at the center. With this economy, it could be a few weeks, it could be several months. Who knows? But today, I checked on of my applications at UPSjobs, and one of them came up as "schedule appointment", so I did - for next Tuesday. Whoo! Of course, that doesn't automatically mean I have a job, but hey, it's a good sign. Looks like the twilight shift, but I'm open to anything. So, is there anything I need to know or expect, going from driver's helper to package handler? Any tips or pointers, or should I just go with the flow? And yeah, it may be a low-level position, but my mantra in this economy these days is: "Any employment is good employment". And everyone has to start somewhere.
