Ups has good benefits and the pay starts to get better if you bid to get different jobs. That's how you get quick pay raises. However, some of the work there is very hard cause you have to be able to load and unload so many pkgs to keep to the trucks ready to move out. I was there 5 years. Yard shifter, loved my job and was good at it til I was injured. After that they screwed me over really really bad. Most people don't last very long there cause it is hard work starting off but if you can make it til the job bids come out. You can make good easy money.

I have a different opinion, UPS has a lot of benefits but there’s a lot of favoritism and discrimination, I worked for ups for 23.5 years and I got terminated because I threw a chair to an open area. They told me that I was misscoudocted. I saw people abusing authority, folsefing records, hiding service providers.fisicaly abusing other employees and they all got their jobs, just watch if you decide to work for ups

Corporate work is awesome from the bottom to the top. You can grow laterally or horizontal in the company or learn enough to carry that name brand elsewhere

Describe your career self to LinkedIn- what is your journey? I will start- I am a seasoned, yet skilled and powerful Data Analyst, Business Analyst, BI, Visualization and Report Developer who works in the Healthcare sector. I am also an aspiring Data Scientist going the route of college classes in Mathematics, Statistics and Economics mixed in with a Master's in Data Analysis and Master Public Health through 5 different universities. I have an increasing interest in healthcare economics and statistics in hopes to help the healthcare industry tackle what seems to be the impossible- give quality healthcare yet maximize the dollar.

I recently took a class to become a Safety Professional in the refineries and construction field. I currently hold my CSST certification, Osha 30 and field safety through Nccer. I have also done security in the refineries for close to 10 yrs but I don't have any experience in the field not do I have any trades such as Welding or pipefitting. Nobody wants to hire be because I don't have any experience. I am very knowledgeable about safety and other policies and procedures but the no experience side is really holding me back. They want me to start from the bottom which is a fire watch position. Where should I go next? Should I just keep looking or start as a fire watch to get my foot in the door?

This question tests several aligned needs which must be asked during interview between recruiters, hiring manager's, & interviewees. The first being -- where are you headed? The second being -- why? The third being -- for what reason? These sound like basic questions during interview, but they're critical not only to your 'positioned and targeted success'. Therefore, these questions directly tell recruiters and hiring managers what you've been planning without any baloney (such as offering a trumped-resume that won't speak volumes through direct business). Furthermore, these questions tell hiring manager's specifically how you're positioning yourself for 'targeted (no rejection) success'. By that kind of success, I mean to say that you're creating a pathway years before you emerge. Case in point, if I want to be a fire-powered sales rep working for a top company, I'm going to work my tail feathers off to get there using a real positioning strategy: 1) Transfer entrepreneurial skills directly over to a prime target audience years in advance. How? Simple. Work alongside the target audience daily by giving this audience what they need most (a no frill's approach to maintaining an efficient but organized O.R.). 2) Address gaps in skill-set. Here's how. If I'm going to be a top rep in cardiovascular surgery, I'm going to work in surgery first fulfilling any basic roles for at least 3 years. Let's call this role surgical technician. There's a 2-yr associate's degree that's required. I can work during the day and study online at night. The tuition money is available through the U.S. Gov't. The pay increase must follow so that you can repay all plans. Then, fill in the sales skill-set for at least 2 years by working in a call center (by closing business using an advanced rebuttal system). 3) Approach the top company your want. By-pass H.R. and head straight to hiring managers because they're the only ones who can say 'yes' or 'no' on hire. I don't care where you attend school for training. As long as you're detailed-oriented and conceptually strong/ethical, you can't lose. What matters is that you design your success in phases, and by using this strategy, you'll become a top 1% candidate -- the kind recruiters and hiring managers wish they met more often. Therefore, even if you start out working a $44K/year job, that's not a problem because that success will carry over to the call center environment at $63K/year. Then..., once those required gaps are met, you become a dream candidate for any recruiter or hiring manager because you're guaranteeing all involved parties success beforehand. Your performance isn't an issue because you've got the hard-core, proven skill-set (and network) they want. Therefore, asking for a job with a top company is no problem because you've done the work. During interview, you're testing corporate alignment (culture with fit)..., and you're checking corporate strategy/& growth aligned to your definite contributions (so that you can indirectly look at your favorite company's solvency. This information shows you that they can ride out market fluctuations (up's and down's)..., and their growth during these next 20 and 30 years will reveal that you can retire very well ... or promote further from within). Does this help? Find what absolutely motivates you, then head to O Net Online Dot Org. http://onetonline.org. There, you 'll see all of the resources you need in order to make informed, planned, & reimbursed decisions sculpting tremendous success. As an added bonus, if you'd like to know how to translate a $63K/yr job into a $143K job ... or build your pathway in directions called a $200K/yr job..., or $500K/yr job, then you include 1099 consulting. You can sculpt any pathway you wish by emphasizing your passion! Love, Barbara Brinkmeyer, MBA

I have been working in the pediatric department at a clinic for about 2 years. I recently got my nursing degree and now there is a position available. One problem, my manager is trying to give the position to someone she knows and I am afraid to confront her about it. Should I look the other way and wait for another to be available? I need help!!

I currently am having trouble finding something that I would enjoy more then my current job. I feel stuck and unsure how to get out of this rut. I have had trouble getting any relevant experience since graduating college 5 years ago. Does anyone have advice on how I should go about escaping this rut?
