    Actually thats electro-shock therapy. Nicholson is later lobotomized at the end of the film and Chief smothers him to put him out of his misery.


    As far as a recommendation, in todays UPS all you need is a pulse.

    It doesn't hurt to have a friend recommend you for hiring at UPS, but hardly necessary.... Tell 'em I sent ya.

    It would help to have someone recommend you. When I used to be on a route that had a driver's helper, HR would just ask me if I had someone in mind and they would bring them in and hire them.

    It probably makes their job easier because if the driver asks for them they will probably both be more likely to make it work out.

    No a recommendation isn't going to help.

    They will call you when they have an opening for you to fill and tell you when you can take a tour of the facility that you would be working at after the tour they will tell you to go back online and fill out more questions.

    The book is slightly different and slightly better in a different way. It is told entirely from the Indian Chief's point of view.

    A recommendation would most certainly help. I have been able to get two of my helpers hired on to stay after Peak.
