Yea....You want to hear an hourly's opinion. Stay part time until a fulltime driving job comes your way. Stay as a fulltime driver until a feeder job comes along take that make about $70-$85k a year, not pay for your benefits, get into a 401k, after 30 years retire fat and happy while collecting your pension and give this same advise to somebody else because I will be dead by then!!!!! If you go the management route get use to working more hours than you are getting paid for and you will have to pay for your benefits and have a god awlfull prescription plan. The moral of the story is stay in the union and be happy!!!
Here's some tips:
Why do you want the job
What qualities will you bring to the job
Your educational status - currently attending school or graduated
What degree you have if you have completed school
Any committee meetings or activities
Future goals with UPS
You can leave out the vast grammar and wordplay, as that will be perceived as smoke and mirrors.
I do, from the OMS ranks. I'm tellin you some of these people are real jerks and think they not only run the center but think they own the center. Our ever genius center manager just promoted one of our OMSes to ON CAR, with his (the OMS) vast experience answering the phone is qualified to supervise 10-15-30 year drivers. Yeaboy, brilliant move.unfortunately, the new mgt who will run the company in the future will not have all of the "perks" that you enjoyed. Sometimes headaches are a little more easy to cope with when you know in the back of your mind that you will be getting something worthwild at the end of the month, or year. The supervisors who are coming on now wont get nearly as much stock, as good of medical, or even the chance of promotion, probably among other things that you had. Not really sure where the next generation of mgt will be coming from?
Brown and down you really should register, and welcome to the site.!!!Stated perfectly!!! I was a part time sup for 5 years after preloading for 1 year. Biggest waste of my time and my seniority.Told me to drive for 1 peak season in order to get full-time promotion.Made my book and never had any intention on going back into management. I'm now a driver for the past 15 years and trust me dont make the mistake that I made.They will use and abuse you and you will have to take it with a smile. Next time I sell my soul it will be for a good reason....DONT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!
