I have only been with UPS a month now and just gained my seniority. I am a package handler in a major mid-west hub. I can't seem to find out how to get put on for full-time ( this list I keep hearing about). Just how long does it take to go full-time and are there other positions other than driver to go full-time ( just wondering). Also, I hear a great deal of full-timers have a college degree of some sort. Is this a requirement in order to become a full-time employee or does it not matter that you have a degree ( even to become a driver)? I guess my questions could go on forever because it seems like information is somewhat secretive when asking around the hub. It's like the managers and supervisors think , "Well, he's not going to get my job! " That seems to me to rarely even be the case, however, that just seems to be the dispositon I see. Finally this. When one is a part-time package handler, all their medical benefits are paid, but the instant that they go for supervisor, their medical they have to pay for and then they become salaried. Why is this so, it seems like you are punished for making an accomplishment? Any and all input on this situation would be greatly appreciated.
