    Hey everyone, my name is Bryan, I just completed the season as helper, I had doubts going into this whole process after reading reviews but I was fortunate enough to land as a helper on a Mall route doing all Mall delivery's, Advantage was I was out of the weather for the most part, but it was alot heavy boxes and tons of PEOPLE! But I can say I LOVED it, The driver told me there are alot of guys that dont like the route but I really enjoyed myself and the driver who has been with UPS 23 years 11 on the route, was a real big motivation and the reason why I chose to stick with UPS, I hope to be brought back after the new years, and we will see, so Im guessing the next step would be package sorter or loader or something? People ive spoken to keeps telling me how diffilcult it will be, but Im going to stay positive, I hope to continue with UPS hopefully it all works out! Anyway enough rambling, hope to learn alot on here!

    Hello again, I figured I would post in this thread instead of making a new one, but Bigbrownhen, you mentioned to try and keep the application updated? After a certain time, do I need to call and see the open positions available for post peak employment, or wait for the phonecall? Also for anyone that can answer this I think I would do better on unload than preload (Although I have never done eaither), if they start you off on preload and its kind of a "struggle" will they try you out at different positions within the hub? Thanks

    This isn't always necessarily the case, Upstate. I've seen many a preloader that should have been "assigned" elsewhere.
