There's something that doesn't feel right about busting my ass for 8.50 an hour, but I love the workout and leave work feeling great. Plus, a dollar raise is only a few months down the road and there are amazing part time opportunities and future benefits that provide incentive. This is great while I go to school, and will only get better as raises and advancement come my way. Just gotta keep working hard! It's tough getting used to building a nice wall and maintaining a quick pace. Today was my fifth day. I see myself progressing slowly but surely. Hopefully I'll have it down before their 40 day "grace period" is over. I like everyone I have worked with so far, and my supervisor/trainer is just a nice guy. This definitely makes things more tolerable. I have responsibility and am working hard... something I did not have working in my previous job (clerical work at a doctor's office). I'm developing a good work ethic. I know what it means to dedicate hours of my day to hard, manual labor. Great to be part of the UPS team. I hope this positive attitude isn't temporary. I'm only a week in, so hopefully the job doesn't get the best of me after several months. Props to you guys who have done/are doing this type of work. Good ****.
