    Hey guys,

    Is there anyone here on the board who can tell me how long on average would be the wait time to become a full time PC driver at this hub? Any additional routes being added or a big influx of retirements coming up there that might speed up the wait time?

    I have the option of applying either at Deerfield Beach or Riviera Beach. I think Deerfield might be a better place to work eventually once I become a driver. I've heard that Riviera has some pretty rough neighborhoods.

    Are there any specific details I should be aware of once I start working at one of the two hubs? I will probably be working during the reload shift at night.

    Thanks

    I'm familiar with the Riviera Beach neighborhood. Some family of mine spends winters in Delray Beach which is a little south of Riviera. Riviera would not be a fun place to work as a driver. I know Deerfield as well. Much nicer area

    Both are centers not hubs and very similar in size. While the Riviera bldg is in a crappy neighborhood I can assure you Deerfield has some crapholes also. As far as wait time? It was in the range of 7-10 years but with a lot of guys moving to feeders and retiring the wait is less maybe 5 years? With the implementation of Orion expect more to leave and maybe the wait shorter.

    According to the troll brown jake, Florida wait time for FT driver is only 1-2 years. I'm sure he's right. He's only on his 2nd attempt at trying to work at ups and doesn't even have seniority.


    Seriously though, I'd plan an average of 7-9 years.

    Waiting times are shorter if you are a woman or a minority, in that order.
