I am am outside, a non-UPS'er but had actually been curious about UPS and have even given thought to leaving my current job if I could get a job with UPS. So, how many of you folks had careers elsewhere but decided to go to UPS, particularly to work in a field that wasn't totally related to your previous line of work? I am currently, in an IT position but have grown a little bored of the day-to-day life of sitting in a chair at a cubicle and maintaining systems and entering data. The negative part that I can think of with UPS is that I actually think I might prefer to be a driver but I know from reading that they don't really hire them off the street. It sounds like the best way to become one is to work part-time as a package handler for 3+ years and that would get your "clock" going at the company and potentially open the door for a driver position. Obviously, I would have a tough time leaving a 50k a year job to be a part-time package handler just in the hope (again, hope, not a guarantee) that it would lead to a full-time driver position. Has anyone here gone this route before? Surely we have some people here that made career changes to go to UPS.
