Hey everybody, long time UPSer, first time poster here. Just had a few questions about UPS advancement opportunities. I've been a loader for almost 3 years, and recently an HR guy asked me if i'd be interested in any higher-up jobs, I said yes, and he suggested I apply for a part-time supervisor position as there's apparently going to be a few sups promoted in my hub. (Ideally i'd like to be a pickoff sorter, been qualified for about a year, but given the way people cling to that position I might as well ask for a unicorn too right?) Anyway, i've read on here quite a bit about being a part-time sup, and seen the generally negative response to it, so i'm still on the fence about it, but I was just looking for help as to how I should go about applying? The HR guy I talked to told me everything was online, but when I went to UPSers it said that the TMS can only be accessed inside a UPS facility? So, do I have to use a computer in the facility? And I also heard something about a "letter of intent", but can't find anything on UPSers about what that entails or should look like. I just can't seem to get my hands on some solid, "do this, then this" information. I figure i'd like to get my hat in the ring, I figure it couldn't hurt to have my name in the pool even if they don't select me right away, right? Loading's alright, and in this economy it's a job, period, which I am thankful for. The benefits are what i'm here for, mainly the tuition assistance. I'm a tall guy with a some bone problems and part of my interest in becoming a PT sup lies there, not giving my knees and back a beating every night (I bend at the knees and do all the keys and steps, but when you're well over 6' there's still going to be problems). Also, does anyone know if there's a base salary rate for a PT sup? I'd like to compare that to what i'm earning now. Any info/input would be really appreciated, thanks everyone!
