Fast paced environment that rewards hard work and dues
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 20, 2017
a typical day consists of walking the warehouse to the unload area where light calisthenics and stretching are required. When the sorting belts turn on, you begin unloading a truck as quickly, and as courteously as possible - being mindful of your teammates on the sort line and conscientious of the parcel itself -
After a few trucks, you'll begin to perspire or vomit from exhaustion, where the manager will encourage you to take a break and rehydrate in preparation for the 4 trucks your lazy coworkers didn't finish.
The workday usually ends early, and depending on workload could result in you going home in less than an hour. However, in holiday season, it is expected to help sort and load trucks to pick up the slack after unloading.
To achieve full-time status, you must have seniority and be apart of the Union - most waiting lists require at least 4 years of tenure before being considered for the full 8 hour shift. After 10 years of paying dues, you may be considered to be a driver which I hear has its perks.
So if you put in your time, you'll be able to have a steady job with great benefits, but it starts off part time and if you're not in shape, you'll have a rough time at first.
