    New hire here, been working as a PT package handler for a month now. I was just wondering if I should be strapped in a stray jacket somewhere in an isolated room with cushioning because, well as stated I actually enjoy package handling. Now of course that could change considering I am relatively new, but it feels strange since almost all my coworkers and most people on forums appear that they hate doing this job. I'm even considering working two shifts a day, which at my facility would amount to an average 11 hour work day which does seem pretty nuts.

    It's just a phase. You should order some cheap :censored2: from the UPS Catalog before you reach the point at which the sight of UPS anything at home might make you lose your latest meal.

    It's like having a new girlfriend. Everything is so nice in the beginning. She still has that new girl smell. She cooks , cleans and ain't afraid to get down on a knee. The first time you ask her to make you a sandwich and she gives you that dirty look, it's time to go.

    It's like the pizza rule.

    After romantic, intimate relations.... what's your first thought ?

    Do I want to stay and cuddle ?

    Or, "I wonder if there is any cold pizza in the fridge" ?

    The true test of love.

    A whole month and they haven't told you they see "potential" in you and you should go into management?

    You won't change. The workload they give you will. It's a learning process. You're not a snowflake.

    I enjoy driving and package delivery. I dislike my supervisors, dispatch, the center manager, and the rest of the people that are from corporate. The job is simple. The people make it harder.

  12. You need to go thru a peak season... then let's see what you think of the dump. If you are loading 2 trucks and like your job.. they will give you 3 to load... if you still like it they will give you 4 to load...etc..

    I bet you do son! I'm sure you have years of practice and are an expert. I think you're some kind of deviated prevert!

    If you can get in a nice rhythm it's not too bad. Listen to your headphones and zone out. Gets annoying when some poor sup gets in the way.
