Hey all, how's everything going? I was just hired as a p/t package handler for UPS, I'm due to start in a few weeks, and wanted to know what the real potential for career growth within the company is like. I'm in my mid 30's now, have a family, taking classes towards a college degree, and would like to work for a company that has strong potential for upward advancement. I thought that UPS would be perfect for that, but after hearing from one of the managers at my local hub that he has been on the driver waiting list for 14 years, and reading other similar stories, I'm beginning to wonder if this is a wise career move. I don't mind the hard work and low starting wage if the position can serve as a solid stepping stone for better opportunities down the road, but if it's going to be a decade or more with only limited advancements, such as becoming a sorter or a p/t sup, then I'd like to know in advance. Any info that you experienced guys/gals can provide would be greatly appreciated. Also, what are some of the other opportunities that a package handler can move into, besides supervisor or driver positions?
