    I was hired 3 1/2 weeks ago as Full Time Driver (with no UPS experience). I know that I am lucky to get the opportunity. It took a weeks worth of classroom test along with 16 others from all around. Went on a intense ride along (passed with flying colors), did the eye driving test (passed with flying colors) and I also passed the final exam (lots of memorization). Now I am told that the last step of training is to have a supervisor ride along with me on a real delivery route. The HR contact told me that this is the long drawn out part...that the supervisors hate doing these drive-alongs because they are used to being in the office and procrastinate. I have been waiting a full week to a schedule date...does it always take this long? I need to work and need a check. Now I have a full week without any training pay.
