I did this too. Basically as long as you're able to lift something, you're fine. Maybe just practice lifting random ass boxes around the house I guess. You'll be fine though. Any specifics about the job?
>>25869987 I was scared I would slow em down and I'd get passive aggressive comments and I would never be liked or anything But that's unrealistic unless they're complete assholes Not only was I out of shape but I was chubby, this will help you man trust me
>>25869852 I do this too, except load boxes into the trucks.
It's not too bad. First few weeks you'll feel exhausted as fuck but your muscles get used to it and it'll feel like a normal job. Just build a decent pace so people don't think of you as "that slow guy"
>>25870045 >>25870095 What kind of low standards place did you work at? That doesn't sound like any shipping company anywhere. I've worked at five different places and had friends across the country in the same position. If you aren't busting your ass and working hard then you're too slow and people will take note of that. Shipping isn't a job field I would recommend for NEETs.
>>25870081 I did this at a food bank for grad requirement service hours this past summer/spring break. I have scrawny arms (some muscle condition I can't be bothered to look up), but I was fine. Remember to lift with your knees and not with your back. I lifted with my back, and I'd be sore as hell for the next day after an 8 hour shift lifting stuff. Honestly though, I loved it. Everyone else there was there for community service, meaning there were some interesting people to converse with during downtime (which wound up being fairly often)
>>25870081 Sounds exactly like my Fed-Ex job. Maybe shit is heavier at Lowe's, but for the most part things are bearable weight. I'm a smaller guy and I managed fine. If it's particularly heavy they can't force you to lift it on your own, they're a whole messy web of laws that basically prevent them from firing you for not being good enough. Your job is basically A for Effort, that's all.
>>25870172 You adapt to the job pretty quickly man, I worked for a wholesale house. Owner was a multimillionaire but he was a real nice guy and his daughter liked me so that was a plus Nice boss usually means nice employees We worked very hard, sometimes I'd do 2 hours after closing alone in the warehouse and I was 14 so that was big for me lol
>>25870095 >I was scared I would slow em down and I'd get passive aggressive comments and I would never be liked or anything
OP here, the thing is this was also the very first job I ahead several years ago. This very thing happened and I believe it's what kicked off my social anxiety so I'm feeling pretty anxious about it. Desperate time call for desperate measures.
Easiest job there is OP. You spend about 2 hours pushing boxes around and then 2 hours downstacking off pallets into smaller more manageable carts for stockers. Take lunch, come back and take it all out to the floor. After all the freight is out you sweep the room and prep for tomorrow and go home. Most people you work with are blacks and autists (srs). They will act macho for your first week and then you will learn where shit goes and it will be easy. Best job I ever had but the pay was shit.
>>25869852 get some good gloves on that give you a good grip and youll be fine. dont over do it if you want to carry on doing that job, fuck up your back and they wont call you in again. if something seems too heavy then leave it be. as long as you do your bit youll be fine
