    I just recently became a pt supervisor and would like to know if anyone can tell me how to become a FT supervisor as fast as possible. I understand this won’t be something that’s gonna happen overnight or anything. I’m aware that going FT is a big commitment and is not for everyone but I would like to know how to increase my chances of getting a FT position. TIA !

    be in school, make your FT and manager happy with you, be organized, never complain or excuse poor performance, treat your employees fairly but always hold them to the standard, keep your hands off the packages

    Thanks for the tips, I’m currently looking into getting my associates. So is the reason you say “keep your hands off the packages” so I don’t get a grievance(s)?

    It is difficult as it is a bottle neck.
    LOTS of pt Sups vying for less than a handful of ft positions thar may open up.
    It might not be what you know, but who you know?

    no, it’s so you keep your mind focused on your real job: training and improving the skill level of your new and older employees

    every package you handle is less time you could have been doing something actually useful

    How helpful in improving my chances would getting an associates degree be you think?

    I'd think an associates degree would be helpful for landing a decently paying job that utilizes the practical skills you learned at the CC. RN, electrical, surveying, utility, HVAC etc.

    Probably not that helpful in moving up the management ladder of a large corporation.

    I'm told a bachelors isn't required to be management in operations but you'll never go any higher or anywhere else within the company.

    A bachelors is required if you want to climb the ladder of success. Amazingly it doesn't matter what your bachelor degree is in.

    Correct. It could be a BA in basket weaving and they wouldn’t care.

    "If you’re interested in a career as a registered nurse (RN), there are several paths for starting your career. To become a nurse you can earn a 2-3 year RN diploma or associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a four-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN)."

    Are you a minority? If so, your chances are greatly improved.

    A female minority doesn't even have to apply .They just tell UPS if they want the position or not.

    Must be the truth. I had to stop by the HR/employment office to ask about something I got in the mail and it was literally nothing but minority women. I was the only male and the only white person in the whole building.

    Nice ladies, though.
