I just finished my 1st week as a driver helper. Awesome experience! I started the week (Tue) with 1 driver and he told me we did 101 in the 3 hours I was with him. He told me I rocked and was going to put in a good word with Dispatch about my solid work ethic. Called in the next day and was told he is light and isnt using a helper today so I got a different driver. My new driver is also very cool and we get along well. I was with him 3-4 hours each day for the remainder of the week. I'm told I will be with him for the remainder as long as he needs help. 140 - 198 - 126 rest of the week. He even lets me use the DIAD on occasion and get some signatures. Most of the time I just bust my arse to the door and back in a brisk pace. I am no slacker, every house gets a brisk pace. This is evident by the pain from my toes to my hips right now. But its all good, I expected to be sore. You guys bust your tails off so why shouldn't I. So I get a call from my dispatch guy Friday morning telling me I am getting rave reviews everyday and asked me I wanted to continue after seasonal. He is going to put in a request to HR as a candidate for permanent PT after the season. I am pretty stoked about it as I'd love to make UPS a career. Seems almost all the 18-24 year old helpers are slacking. At that age they should be running circles around me at 43 years old. I guess its about attitude (Is this a Career or just a Job). I guess this is where is should ask questions but I really don't have any. I was just looking for somewhere to share my excitement. Keep up the great job Drivers! We are here for you!
