True. I forgot about that.
But I don't know if Crayola is hiring.

Re: Does anyone here work for UPS?

Yeah, Art isn't a major that will open lots of doors for you, but I know of many jobs that require a degree in anything to be hired.

San Jose Police Department is a good example. They make lots of the fact all of their cops have degrees. But they don't have to be in criminal justice.

In many jobs, BA or BS degree is just a checkbox for HR.

Good jobs don't just fall in the laps of high school grads with little experience. You have to work your way up.

Sheesh, why does that all feel like a total waste of time?
thats not exactly what I was getting at. I said its 11-13 to start for a DRIVER not for warehouse, thats even less. my point was you guys are saying UPS pays really well and I don't know how much different their pay is from FedEx, which is the one I've had contact with.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

living at home has nothing to do with the fact that I don't want to move to the midwest. If I really wanted to move away from here I could get a job in CA driving a truck no problem. But like this area here.

hell art wasn't all that much of a major (not that many classes compared to other majors). I filled in credits by doing a geography minor and taking some other electives.
But I've also heard of jobs just wanting any kind of degree and atleast I can check that box while others can't.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

One point we're trying to make is that you shouldn't be short-sighted with regards to entry-level pay. You have to think of where the job could lead in the future.

Unless you are blatently LIED TO!!! and suckered into doing crap that doesnt benefit you in the long run just fills a void in your resume so you hope you're not totally and absolutely wasting your life going to work everyday wondering how you are going to get SHAFTED each and every day.

But that may not apply to everyone.

oh my god up until you said that I had no ****ing clue that pay doesn't stay the same from the point you start the job until the time you retire. I should go back and pay all of my previous employers that extra money they gave me as raises cause they screwed up.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Go to www.upsjobs.com
Looks like they're accepting applications for drivers at a couple locations near you.

Awfully mouthy for someone who still lives with his parents.

Re: Does anyone here work for UPS?

You know what I did to get my foot in the door in my current company? ****ing filing paper for 8 hours a day. Granted, that only lasted for a couple months and I've had about 5 promotions since then, but you have to find a path and get going on it. Or you can always look short-term and still be in the same situation in 20 years, wondering where all the time went and what the hell happened...

We really are trying to help.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?
