This is the second time I've posted here, but I felt that it would be appropriate to re-introduce myself in the hopes that I'll become a more permanent resident here this time (in other words, if I don't get fired before the probationary period ends). I was a helper the last two peaks, but I've been doing something else for the last 5 months. I've been trying to balance work and school, but it's just not working since I can't get guaranteed days off and class/work are both during the day. That's what led me to look into working at UPS again--the knowledge that I'll actually be able to take a class or two during the day with no interference from pesky jobs. The tuition reimbursement helps too (my current job has that, but you have to justify why it's related to what you do or plan to do within the company). The irony of the whole situation is that while I had no intention of pursuing a FT position driving in the long term, at this point I think I may be insane to pass that up if the opportunity should present itself. As much as I want to finish school and get my degree, I'm just not the type of person that can sit behind a desk all day.
