This is my first time/year as a driver helper and I would like to share my experience thus far with all the new guys out there. Prior to my first day with a driver, I ensured that the following steps were taken: 1. Knowledge of job specifications/description 2. Adamant amount of sleep 3. Personal appearance/uniform were up to standards During my shifts: 1. Arrive 20 minutes prior to start (inspect uniform, stretch, bathroom, etc) 2. Safety is always priority! This is the most important b/c any safety mishap caused by my misjudgment, affects not only me but my driver as well! 3. When my driver shows or tells me something, I pay close attention and ask questions at the appropriate time. 4. Initiative! While pulling up to the next stop, I visually determine the safest/quickest route, the best place to put the package, and any hazards that may be in the way. 5. Sincerity! I make sure that my driver, dispatch, management, etc. know how humble and appreciative I am to have an opportunity to be part of the UPS team. Allot of people ask "Can I aspect a driver/mang. position after the holidays" I respect the progression process it takes to become a driver, and by no means do I expect to become a driver in January. If I am offered ANY position within UPS, I will truly be honored and will look forward to learning from you all!!
