Hello, My wife and I are debating whether or not we can make a job at UPS work or not. The local hub is hiring cover drivers. They said from now until mid-Jan it'll probably be everyday work. After that until June-ish it's a tossup and probably not much work at all. The HR reps said around here the first year, to year-and-a-half is the hardest. After that most apparently start working fulltime. I think we can pulloff a year. I don't mind working temp jobs from an agency if I don't drive but it's a big, or seems big, decision. I'm not looking for anyone to give me advice as to whether I should continue through the process I just wanted to see what it was like for current or former drivers. I don't currently work for UPS. They're hiring straight off the street. Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks for the time. PS: A big draw to this job is the notion of consistency. I forgot to mention that. That's huge for us. Once you're on fulltime as a driver is the work steady? Or are you still going day to day wondering if you have a route? I've never worked a union job before so this is all new to me. But I work in tech right now, and there's just no stability anymore. I need retirement, I need stability in regards to knowing how much I'm making or working. From what they said that can take awhile, up to a year and a half like I mentioned.
