    Don't most of the jobs in NYC pay as good or better than ups? Couldn't imagine the traffic, volume, people, etc. Not sure it would be worth it.

    NYC centers have high volume, hundreds of drivers, and a high turnover rate. I would say the average is two years. BK real estate is out of control, luxury condos and apts sprouting up, and million dollar brownstones in Bed-Stuy. With that comes wealthy consumers, more online purchases, and a greater need for drivers. UPS has to expand in BK by 2020. There is currently only one hub in BK to service a borough that would be the fourth largest city in the US on its own. The rest are serviced by its neighbor in Queens.

    Doug Heffernan don't seem to have any problems getting around Queens. He's always got time to get in trouble.

    I'm dispatched out of Queens but work in downtown Brooklyn. The traffic can be brutal (mostly on BQE) but once I'm parked I can walk off a lot of stops with the 4 wheeler. I average 15-17 miles per day and only 3-5 miles on route. 150-180 stops and about 220-250 pieces on average. Many doorman stops, commercial buildings and walk up apartments. The truck empties out quickly. Overall not a bad place to work if you don't mind traffic and a lot of walking
