brownsurvivor: If your working for benefits only, why take on the headache of being a P/T sup? As a part-timer you have the option of choosing what shift and job you work. If you don't need the hours just work your 3.5 and go home. There are no payments for healthcare and you will(hopefully)receive a pension(after 5 years vesting) through the UPS pension plan. Supes don't generally have a lot of say in what shift they are put on or moved to. Whatever your decision, Good Luck.
