    I'm healthy, active, and would want to work until 67. I'm in the interview process now, and keeping an eye on the strike. Any comments?

    You’ll be fine if you go straight into management. 67 year old in a package car? Yikes

    old levi's I use to care... but things have changed

    If you plan on driving, you would have to be an outside hire going directly into that position, and even then it would be extremely difficult. Not many make past 60, in pkg. delivery, or want to.

    You would do better learning a trade. 20 years on car is a long time

    What do you mean by “keeping an eye on the strike?”

    If I were you I’d immediately look toward air or feeder driving as your end goal. Even if you have to land in a PT sort first. No FT package delivery.

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    There’s 48 year olds working there now, so no. Your direction should be based off you and your circumstance, not the internet.

    Is it the only job you can get at the moment, for example. Families need to be fed and bills need to be paid so do it.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I'd hate to know I started at the bottom at 48 in package. Might just jump off a bridge instead with the way things are now at ups.
