Hey everyone, former UPSer (left in 07) checking in with a quick question. I was an OMS (although we were fiddling with names back then, IIRC they were calling us PTPCS's when I left) when I left, and in the years since I've thought often about my old job. The curiosity and my free time on a Saturday afternoon finally got the better of me so I figured I'd register and see if anyone knew when the job of OMS (or part-time supervisors in general?) first came about. I started after the positions were already established and never really did get any kind of definitive history on where my job came from, other than that clerks used to do a lot of the phone answering type jobs before they had part time supervisors doing them. Were these jobs created in response to FedEX getting bigger and badder or the company preparing to go public or something? If you know anything about the history behind OMS's/part time supervisors I'd love to hear your insight!
