Good luck bro, seasonal I would assume? Have been trying to apply for it for a break job but no luck so far. This area sucks balls when it comes to jobs.

i am a very slow learner. when i did wrestling in high school, it took me forever to get a technique down. i basically got wins from raw hard work and conditioning

they give you about 2 weeks to learn the technique down. The packages aren't heavy but they just keep coming non stop and if you aren't hustling you will get buried in them.
they have you inside of the trailers and you build walls of packages, it's like playing legos. If you build crappy walls then they will collapse and they'll get pissed at you.
The average package is actually light, some are just weird shaped and it is kind of hard to find a good place to put them. Sometimes you will get a package that is heavy as f*ck. I used to get metal barrels full of industrial grade chains those things were f*cking heavy.

it looks like a cluster f*ck when you get assigned to a trailer that nobody was in but the guy at the conveyor belt was still throwing packages inside.
but overall the job itself wasn't too bad, I only worked 4 hours a day m-f

I work at UPS as a package handler (unloader) and to get hired is pretty easy. They like hiring young athletic kids in college, and if you're not a moron the interview will be simple. When I interviewed for UPS the guy that was interviewing me said my interview was so good it brightened his day. Pay 8.50 an hour to start, 1$ raise after 90 days. Monday-Friday every week, and it sho am sum good cardio.
Fun job, fun to dick around with the employees while you work and chit chat, fun to lift and move stuff for a few hours and get exhausted, just an all around good time IMO. Some people think it's too hard but really it's not that bad.
P.S. they don't interview you in front of anybody, initially they instruct on what the job is and outline it to a group, they give you a tour of the facility, then you schedule an interview. If you're first interview goes good, you schedule a second. Second determines if you get hired.
P.P.S the job is as hard as you want to make it most days. I bust hump pretty much always and I'm bar far the fastest unloader I've seen in my building, but a lot of people just go very slow and you can't get fired for it. There are days where it's just hell, you'll get hurt but not enough to want to go home, boxes will fall on you, you'll have to deal with irregs (irregular packages that either way too heavy, mishapen, metal, etc.) and stay late some days and you'll be more than ready to go home by the time your hours are up for the day. Your body gets used to it though, mine has, I can definitely go WAY faster now than I could when I first started the job. Good days, bad days, it's a job like any other. The benefits are great, and it's fun, it keeps you busy. Not a job where you sit around at all, when you're there, you're working.** Brotherhood of Borgasm**

I just basically said that I doesn't afraid of anything, and that if that is what was required then I'd be more than able to do it without whining like a little bitch
