    Hi everyone, just got hired to ups as an AM loader/unloader, just wanted to say hello to everyone! I'm at the Cerritos hub in Southern California.

    Welcome to the BrownCafe. Why do you want to work for UPS?

    My other job had no benefits and no room for growth, I know it's going to be a long hard road but I am a commercial license holder and that's my goal with ups is to be a driver one day!

    I suggest you go here:https://teamster.org/upsupsf-contract-updates/ups-agreements-2013-2018
    and download the National Master Agreement, Western Region Supplement, & Southwest Sort Rider. Start by reading about the probationary period to make seniority. I think it may be a crazy long time where you are. People have complained on here in the past about being shafted about making seniority. Hopefully you'll be OK, as it's still early in the year.

    Then read and ask about the bidding process to become a driver. Keep your driving record clean!

    Good luck.
