    Hello all,

    I'm working to become a driver in SE MI. I know it can take a long time but wondered if anyone knew of approx wait times in my region? Also, once a driver, if you get a moving you lose your job? Last, what is the wait time for benefits as a driver and for PT positions?

    Moving violation? You don't loose your job for a drunk driving conviction. You get 40 hours a week of leaning on a broom for a few months or more.

    Oh thank you, that's good to know. I'd hate to worry about something like a speeding ticket causing me my job...if I become a driver! Is it a year of working before benefits for every position at UPS?

    I think DOT has 3 in a year rule.

    Cool, I keep reading there's a 1 year wait for benefits!

    Part timers receive benefits after a year. Full timers receive them right away.

    Do you even work at UPS? If you are just now starting out part time, you might have quite a ways to go. If not how are you getting a driving gig? Also, you get benefits after your first year at UPS.
