Also...Waky can you tell me if it's possible to transfer to the 6pm to 10 pm shift when I get there?? I originally applied for that shift, however, the girl who called me back said that those shifts fill up quickly and "they like to give them to the college kids." Is it going to be possible to switch?
That sounds like bull. If you look on the web site it says we need people for the twilight shift. Call HR and tell them you want to change to that shift. Also like I said if you need the benifits this is the best job you can have. I lost like 20 pounds in one month just because its so hot here in the summer. Hey to the guy in Texas I had a friend transfer to Huston. He says its much better there too. LoL. It must be Jersey. Matter of fact I know its Jersey.
I'm gonna go in for the tour and see what they say about switching shifts. How hard is it to switch shifts once you're in there?
no buddy it aint Jersey its every hub im thinkin...i wuldnt have thought that until i joined this site and heard many of the same things that r taken place in diff hubs all over..what u described in ur jersey hub was just almost 2the tee as 2what goes on here (oklahoma)...now what that texas guy described sounded like a dream hub that doesnt actually exist...lol..what he described is what we all have meetings about that we want 2 happen and take place but never actually does
Hehe not a dream Hub, it actually exists. We are Number 1 in our district, we have a few bad apples, but that is more than made up by the number of veterans we have.
Our management is top notch, and we can always handle our volume, except for last week when our main belt motor broke lol. We had to do everything manually, and were only 20 minutes past our regular finish time.
Yes, thats my hub. Im at Lawnside. Lets just put it this way I would not let my daughter work at UPS. You are on the morning shift, so you will probbally be loading package cars. Just be prepared to get yelled at. And remember even if you do a really good job they will still find something wrong that you did. If your fellings get hurt easy be prepaired to get emotional. You are a girl which is a plus here. You might get off easier then if it was a guy. Im not kidding Ive seen that happen often. If you take what your supervisor tells personally you will never make it. What my supervisor tells me goes in one ear and out the other. I've been here for 3 years, but now im leaving for college and getting out of UPS. If you need the benifits for you or your family this company is great to work for. If you just need the money please please find work elseware. Just to sum it up they treat you like cattle here. We are cattle with paid holidays and no work on weekends. Yes thats nice too but you pay for it. If you decide to come to the twilight shift, I know people that can help you out. Its also who you know here. Make lots of friends and keep your enimies if any colser. Good luck and happy trails.
