    So i passed my driving test and now im gonna start training next week apparently. They are making us stay at a hotel for the duration of training. Its the first week my hub has tried this. I'm excited but it seems extreme to keep us at a hotel

    I can guarantee that your hotel room has cameras installed so they can watch you.

    Is the training a long way from your center? I love staying at hotels.

    When I started the first test was to see if you could open a door your arms full of boxes!! Then they would ask if you could drive a standard transmission and Cut you loose. Enjoy the motel and food!

    Just turned 21? Does UPS provide chaperones and a 10:00 PM bed check?

    Hit the strip club across the street and ask if anyone wants to try to start one.

    Called me in early to help out with some pick ups as we had a winter storm come through. Walked right by the auto transmission new trucks to the only non power steering high step 800 we have left. Checked the oil and gas and off into the blizzard we went. Nothing better to get around in the snow.

    Make you stay at a hotel???
    I remember my training was intense and went far past 8 hours, but this seems really strange. Are any of the new drivers from the hub, and already Teamsters? What is purpose, total indoctrination? Would the Union be OK with this?
