    Hi All,

    New to the forum here and was wondering how to become full-time at UPS. Been with the company now 7 years and still part time loading trucks. I want to drive the little brown delivery truck. I've seen many different ways on on here on the process of how to do it but does anyone know the REAL way? :)

    Thanks, Teela

    Signing a driving bid is the only way. And welcome to the BC.

    Hoax, err Photog kinda has a strange sense of humor.

    BTW, seven years PT and you have no idea how to go FT? Do they keep you in a cave at your building?

    There should be an informational board hung somewhere in the building for your sort. On that board, whenever there is an opening for a position, there will be a sheet that describes the position. That is the sheet that you sign, and the highest seniority person receives the position. If you don't know where the board is then ask a coworker.

    P.S. That is where you'll find when the next union meeting is as well. (Possibly a different board)
