    I have been driving for about 10 years now with a total service of 15 years and frankly I'm bored. I was looking at the different jobs offered and saw a security position available. has anyone worked security at UPS? can you give me some information on it is it a good idea or bad idea?

    You're like Internal Affairs at a police department. Nobody likes seeing you around and nobody wants to talk to you.
    You'll have very few if any work friends. And you better have really thick skin.

    That would be the most boring low paying job anyone could ever work .

    Just sit there. Alllllll day. And have to search grumpy drivers bags

    Plus, that's not ups (from what I was told ) that's a security company

    *could be wrong *

    I wouldn't mind a change of scenery. A 22.3 or feeder job would be sweet but it's not possible in my building. I'm stuck as a driver. Our local sucks.

    I'm not exactly bored with driving though. I would just like knowing there's options. Even if that only meant being able to bid on routes in other buildings.

    Bid a different route. Something you have no knowledge of. Do it blind. That should break up the boredom.

    I don't think he's talking about the guards in the shack. What he is probably looking at is our security which is just loss prevention.

    Security is more than just LP.

    you have to get out of your comfort zone and shake things up a little. either go cover, go feeders if possible, or go rob a bank. that will make things exciting fo sho.

    Sounds like my dream job. I get to work at Brown and not talk to people? Sweet.

    Richard Harrow Deplorable.

    When I get bored I turn on ORION. It's win-win-win. Breaks up the monotony, provides comic relief, and makes me rich.

    Try it.

    If he is speaking about a loss prevention position, those jobs are highly coveted. You can earn the same pay as a driver, and what could be more fun than trying to catch people stealing? I put in a resume for that department, but the people that work in that department never retire. Those positions come up once in a blue moon. I sure wouldn't feel guilty catching someone stealing from the company.
