    I was asked by the hiring supervisor if I was interested in going to full-time and I said yes and she put me down as so on the list of people to asked who signed the bid sheet, and I was wondering if by some stroke of luck if I get it could I still turn it down if I change my mind or do I have to accept the job?

    You don't have to accept. When they call you for the job you can just tell them you pass.

    Nope, it's a binding contract. You have inadvertently signed your life away for 30 years. Enjoy.

    Lots of reasons. A center with about 100 part timers only had two want to go full time a few years ago when they hired a bunch of drivers. About 10 were hired off the street.

    I can not believe the number of people who start at UPS right from high school and then work the rest of their lives until their bodies are broke down and it's too late to enjoy life.

    i did not start here until well in my 30's. travelled all over the country and then overseas for years . in between got my CDL on the advice of a cross-country trucker who told me if i like to travel so much you may as well get paid for it.

    drove trucks 48 states, 11 western states and saved up money so i could travel for 3-6 months out of the year. it was like a constant vacation even when i was working.

    then stumbled onto a UPS job and had to settle down for 25 years. still fairly young and planning more trips cross-country and Alaska. Just came back several weeks ago from Hawaii.

    Have fun first. You may never have a better time to do it again while you are healthy.

    No regrets.
