How flexable are you?
skip the interview and apply for a Union position than go to that interview. Otherwise get a couple of pair of need pads if you want to turn that position in to a career.
Can you be anymore vague
It is for credit specialist, so I think need pads are not necessary, lol.
heres some advice:
1) just learn to say YES that can be done no matter if it cant.
2) toss out the word NO from your vocabulary as that could end your career
3) learn that common sense doesnt exist in that position
4) accept that specialist means "do what youre told and toss out logic"
Hope this helps.
Not much help on this forum, most of us in operations have no idea about this position.
A specialist in what ???? have you even worked a day at UPS ??? LOL
Its the new title for preload
No...specialists are the guys that do computer work, volume control and full time safety. Expect to kiss ass and talk up the success of this company that you will contribute to. Also expect to get lied to and for them to sugar coat the turd like equipment UPS uses to move volume.
The only specialists we have are the ones who clean toilets, wash office windows and pick up trash.
I talk to one of the specialists in our hub, he's a good guy and the ONLY source of valid information on new technology they put in our center. I find out what kind of metrics the systems are reporting and how long they are retained - that part of the conversation is for self-preservation.
In general, you're an individual contributor and depending upon how many other specialists are in your location, it's a lonely job. PT Sup's don't have a need/desire to talk to specialists and union members view them with suspicion. IMO.
Unless you're getting $18-20/hour or more, I'd encourage looking for a job where your technology skills will be best utilized. You'll also be working with very unique hardware/software so the experience you will gather will not be portable.
Those are called porters.
I'm a specialist too !! I can use the IVIS efficiently and I can drive a feeder !!
Any other guys/gals here a specialists at their craft at UPS
I can use a DIAD, Drive a package car and use a map when need. I guess I'm a specialists also...
But are you good enough to do UPS math??..Now thats a specialist!
I passed UPS Math 25 years ago...its simple.. If they tell you they took 20 off you today, that means they added 30 !!! class dismissed !!
