I start Monday as a loader and unloader, and was just wondering what I should wear? What kind of shoes, pants and shirt? Thanks!!
At my center the uniform seems to be hip-hop casual, everything 3 sizes too big and be sure to wear your straight brimmed hat tilted to the side or you wont fit in. Yet, most seem like good guys and work very hard.
Central34, I thought everything at Dollar General was a dollar, you may be getting ripped off.
oh yeah, i forgot. buy yourself a solid hoodie. i reccomend a "LEE HEAVYWEIGHT" hoodie. nice and thick and warm. great to shed when you get sweaty. that, and comfortable work pants (don't wear freakin' jeans), along with steeltoes with good insoles, you're golden.
I'm a guy and I wear gloves. I want my hands to stay soft. The woman seems to appreciate it, too.I agree. I wear an old pair of khaki pants, and during the colder months a nice warm sweatshirt and a good pair of boots. I don't use gloves, but then again I'm a guy....I don't have nasty callouses on my hands but it's up to you...
invest in some good underarmour.. for heat and for coldi don't know where you live but dress for the weather
if it is hot, wear very light and breathable type clothes to help stay cool, (in the summer just think of the UPS trailers as a greenhouse on wheels.
if it is cold outside, it will be cold in the trucks as well
When I was a preloader I always put strips of tape on my pants where I leaned up against the belt when sorting or reaching for packages. I saved ALOT of wear and tear on my jeans that way. If you don't understand this concept, look around at other workers jeans and see where the wear and tear is.
