    I have been a package handler in Illinois (in a local union) for over 3 years and am attempting to apply for driving positions in another state. Because I have a UPS account UPS wants me to apply "internally" but won't let me update my application or apply for certain positions. Any suggestions?

    Current employees cannot apply for open positions at another facility.

    You mean I would have to quit my current position in order to apply for another somewhere else?! That doesn't seem to make any sense.

    Sure it does.

    Suppose there was an opening for a driving position at your center that you had been waiting for. Would you think it fair that someone from another center be given the job ahead of you?

    Because the positions that I would like to apply for are posted publicly I would assume that they are open to the public. I am not sure why I cannot be considered "public" just because I work for another UPS branch.

    Shifting Contents Most Help Needed

    I was going to do this when a new center opened in my wife's home town.

    I was told I needed to track down the local HR number for the nearest center

    I never found it and no one kn mgmnt would help me get it

    So I never moved

    But good luck with that
