Hi guys (and gals)! I have posted this question elsewhere, but figured I might get more answers by just starting from scratch. My local UPS hub is currently looking to hire a part-time Preload Supervisor. Now here's where it gets fuzzy for me. I've read everyone's advice here for people to start out as a PT Package Handler, however I think my case is a bit different. I'm 27 years old, married (for 5 years), expecting a baby in October and working a pretty "cush" job at the state's flagship University. I am also a student at said University still working part-time on my bachelors degree. I was a freshman there in 1998 and left in 2000 to pursue a full-time job offer. Five years later, I came full circle and am back in school. Thing is, it'd be nice to be able to work this PL Sup job part-time and take a heavier class load, but it sounds like (from what I've been told on this forum) that PL Sups don't bring home as much as I'd hoped. I currently bring home about $1515.00 a month after benefits, taxes, etc. I know the PT job would only be 27.5 hours a week so what can I expect to lose? I'm salaried now. Also, this job has been available for some time (at least 3 weeks). Why no hires from within? What does it take to start out at this level and what are the pros and cons? I have 9 years of professional work experience with over 6 of those years (including my current job) being in a supervisory/management role. Obviously, I'd have to learn a whole new set of skills, policies, and procedures, but I consider myself to be quite adept. So what can I expect? If any of you were me, what would you do? Why? I just put in the application today, so I'm not sure what to expect or if they'll even call me, but if they do......what then? I'd love to hear your opinions. I appreciate anything that you can offer and look forward to some good responses!
