    Let me introduce myself.... I am a former USPS TE City Mail Carrier. I am from Michigan and I've been interested in UPS for the longest.

    Now I always see if I can find a package delivery driver job like three times a week.

    I see a position in Portland, Oregon and it says "UPS is accepting applications for full-time Package Delivery Drivers"

    I'm just wondering is the position full-time-seasonal or full time?
    And if I get an interview will it be in Portland, Oregon or will can I have it in Michigan
    and is it a good time to work for UPS?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's always a great time to be a FT driver, be it 900am or 900pm, or anywhere in between.

    I fell bad for the OP. What an intelligent, helpful bunch we must come across as...

    OP, if you're applying for a job in Portland, and you're invited to an interview, it'll be in Portland. Unless the job description states it's temporary or seasonal, it'll be a permanent FT job.

    Most UPSers begin their career PT, and bid on FT jobs; the CBA requires UPS to take PT on a 6:1 ratio (which the Teamsters are attempting to change to 8:1) and often that outside hire is a PT supervisor or a current driver doing a de facto transfer. But many BrownCafe members have begun their career off-the-street, although it's not common in recent years ... mainly because of the few FT jobs that have become available. If you're interested in the PT-to-FT route, I'd guess that waits would exceed 10 years throughout most of Michigan.

    Best place for an off the street job would be North Dakota. Look at a map and apply at locations within the Bakken Shale formation.

    I don't disagree, but there's plenty of questions of the longevity of the oil boom, with many expecting continued long-term growth, but a short-term "cooling off."

    Reminds me of the early 2000s, in which Harrah's was locally advertising for Las Vegas casino positions (and I live 2,000 miles away) starting at $40,000/year, with full company-paid health & welfare benefits, employee perks such as a buffet lunch & a relocation bonus. Those jobs went bust pretty quick.
