    I know it's not Apple related, but I'm 20 and just got an Interview for a job at a Distribution Center, and it's Unionized, and I'm wondering about the pay, and the hours, I'm starting college this fall, and what can I do about the hours and everything?

    The hiring guy said that work starts at 2PM and ends whenever it's done, which is usually 11PM, but could go into 3-4 AM. and I didn't ask about wage.

    A friend from college landed a job as an outbound manager at a local distribution center. He was making 80k which, out of college, isn't a bad gig at all.

    But that doesn't mean anything about YOUR job. Go and find out. If it's paying minimum wage and has those hours, is it worth it to you?

    Also, being a unionized job, you'll likely need to pay into the union, at least a monthly due and likely an upfront due. You'll want to know about that too.

    Nothing. You have zero bargaining power in this situation.
