    teamwork is a big key. so working as in a team is ideal for you no matter how much you hate people and want to kill them.

    i applied at UPS. went took the test interview etc. then they called me back and left a message on the answering machine (while I was at school) to go to the orientation in 45 minutes. needless to say i missed it. i think i'll give them a call as a matter of fact.

    Mang: That's quite a coincidence, I too plan on applying at FedEx this week. My friend works there he said they don't drug test, you can wear what ever you want, 10 dollars an hour, and you can work the graveyard shift. Worderismness.

    sounds like a good deal, dirty. good luck on that! i'm hoping they're desperate for people considering it's the season for lots of package moving.

    I almost got a plush job @ FEDX in the callcenter making 12-14 an hour. Except my retarded ass couldn't get above 45 WPM.

    FEDX was also not willing to work around my school schedule.
    UPS was more than willing.

    i sure he'd be ok with the piss test and not drinking and driving, but that 75 lbs test could show him the door....

    the guy who drives the UPS truck up to my building is super cool.
    he knows everybody and chills with the ladies on the steps.
    He used to rock the jehri-curl, but now he's got the baldhead.

    It wouldn't be so bad driving around.
    I'd LOVE to be a postman who gets to 'walk the beat'.
    Being a mail sorter or package humper* would be just awful.

    *hump as in : to move something... therefore -undertone immunity declared-
