Go into Management from 22.4

I know many people here are not a fan of management but had a question in regards to it.
I was hired on as 22.4 and the way that I am looking at things, there is really not much incentive to move most 22.4s into RPCD at all. Majority of the swing drivers at my hub have been there a few years and are still a few years out from being able to get their own route. Chances are that 22.4s will be topped out for a few years on lower tier before being able to move over to RPCD which obviously benefits the company greatly.

I was told with my prior experience there is a high likelihood I can get fast tracked to an on road supervisor if I wanted to take that on. I think it is a no brained at this point but was curious as to what others would do especially if they were a 22.4.

Management would be like taking a 22.7 job

LOL, they need supervisors because nobody wants that job. They’d take almost anybody.

They have to move 22.4s up when a rpcd quits or is fired or transfers away.

Think buddy. they say this to lot of people with half a brain.
You have more job security with a union job.
If you don't mind being considered every name in the book behind your back by all means become an ORM.

The top out for 22.4s will be around $35 in 4 years. That's still pretty good money. And then at some point you can bid on a RPCD position. Management personnel get transferred a lot. Buy a house close to your center then 3 months later you get transferred 2 hours west. Grass isn't always greener or something .

We have so many pt sups that thought they were going to be fast tracked into a higher position. And they are still hanging placards after 10-15 years.

Wait... so you'd start off as a PT sup with the likelihood of being fast tracked to a FT sup?

If you plan on staying at UPS I wouldn’t do it.
If you want to move on from UPS with a college education, I’d do it just for my resume.
