    Hello fellow UPSers,

    I'm new to the forum. I've been lurking for the past month, and I finally came around to registering.

    I've been with UPS for the past 5 months working the Pre-Load. Everything has been good except for the
    fact what I'm making right now monetary-wise isn't cutting it. I'm looking for another part-time job.

    That is where the problem lies because as I was in the process of polishing up the ol' Resume, I was
    at a loss for words as what to put down for tasks/job duties/job description for both being a Pre-loader
    and my past stint as a Driver's Helper.

    Any input would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for quick reply guys. I'll make sure to add these suggestions to my Resume.

    Now I have another question, since I'm working pre-load, what can I put as my job duties, besides Routing/Loading
    to make it sound more interesting? Is there an official UPS job duty list for a Pre-Loader?

    Thanks for the advice, my apologies for the late reply.

    My current situation as of now is that of concern. Concern for the upcoming contract and what it brings.

    I have been a UPSer for about a year now, and have seen the abuse PT Sup's go through on a daily basis, nevertheless, I have completed the MAPP process and am waiting to hear of any new available promotions. Time will tell for this option.

    On the other hand, if I want to stay union, it's all a waiting game. A fellow co-worker recently got promoted to Saturday Air driver after 5 years loading. I can't see myself loading for 5 years for position as a driver to materialize. The benefits are great now that I got them, but who knows what will happen with the impending contract.

    It all comes down to that as of right now the job market is bad, UPS is all I have right now, so I need another job to help pay the bills. Any help on my resume is welcome. Thanks.

    I worked plenty of other part time jobs while playing the waiting game. From meat clerk to driving a transit bus. It sucks a bit but if you can find a job that starts right after preload your good. Retail kinda sucks because then you have the chance of working 7 days a week with no off days. That sucks too. Transit bus was the best other paying job I had.
