I know it depends building to building. But i also know everywhere has been on a mass hiring spree. I noticed the drivers at my building getting off a lot earlier in the last month. As a an air driver im constantly thinking up conspiracies as to UPS next move because my ground help calls depend on it. Like last year, i thought they were hiring as few drivers as possible so they would save money on insurance. And just call in air drivers when they need them. Aka last year was a great year to be an air driver, made the same as fulltime drivers but wasnt harassed about numbers and stuff. But this year, im wondering if they are gonna hire a ton of fulltime drivers. So they wont get slammed during peak and work peak season hours all year. Because when peak season actually hits, they got really bad publicity for being understaffed. So maybe now they are just gonna overstaff everyone year round and not use air ground help as much. Which means id need to switch to full time. Being an air driver is feast or famine as someone said, but its freaking easy and get up to 500$ a day when i ground help.
