after one year of service, i decided to quit. the amount of misery in showing up to the hub every night to stand in one space just wasn't worth the tuition reimbursement. i was hired by a major airline and started training this evening and i really see what people mean by "there's more in life than brown". my peers in training, the working environment, the supervisors are miles ahead of what i had to deal with at brown. they did pay my tuition, but i'll take the free flights instead. although it will suck working christmas day, holidays, weekends, and varying shifts rather than "monday to friday, xxxxhrs-xxxxhrs", the flights and working environment make it all worth while. it was fun posting on here and i wish you all the best in your careers. to any pt upsers in school or just looking for casual work, unless you're in Flint, MI, there's a lot more out there. especially with an airline or something. take care, and thanks for the good times!
