Hello Everyone. This Is My Introduction And I have Some Questions. I Know A Few People That Work For UPS. Im Soon Going To Be Working For UPS as A Package Handler. Like A lot Of People My goal Is To become A Driver. My Start date Will Probably Be Within The next Week ,Two At The Most. Ive Been Cruising This Forum Quite A Bit For The Past few Days And Im aware This Year Has Been Crazy For How Many People Theyve Been Putting Through As Drivers. Ive Also Been Told By Someone I Personally Know in That Hub said That A Couple People They Know Of Became Drivers After 6 months Or so. So My Question(s) is For Anyone In The Pacific Hub. 1)Are There Still A Lot Of Slots still Open For Drivers This Ye ar In Pacific (i Heard It Was Suppose To be 18/19 for The Year)? 2)I Also Knew Someone That When They Were becoming A Package Handler That They were Told The Wait For A Green package Handler Was 8 or So Years. Realistically How Long Would I Have To Wait Approx. 3)this Question Really Ties In W/question 2. reading Through This Forum I see At Different Hubs Factors that Are Keeping Pters From Becoming Drivers. They Dont Want To, too Young, DUIs, not Qualifying Etc Etc. Again This Is The Same as Question Two. How Major Are these Factors At Pacific? (i Really Wanna Be A Driver as Soon As Possible) 4) what Are The Chances Of Me Going Into The Second Interview For Pkg Handler And Expressingly How Badly I Wanna Be A Driver and they Say "you Know What I Think We found someone we Need To Hire "off The Street"" ;D (as A Driver) 5)how Strong Is Our Union? Better Yet How Good Is Our Union rep? I Apolagize For The Bad Grammar And Every Stinkin Word Being Capatalized. Phone Decided It Wants To Be A Tweak On This Site Thank You in Advanced Everyone!
