    Thank you! I was curious about how much ups workers get paid since i was looking for a new job so I did some digging around and came across this forum.

    Hahaha XD. Well it was a 1-2 week hiring process before they gave me the uniform. They had it in the back.
     
  5. Make sure you buy some good comfortable work shoes.

    So you got hired off the street to become a driver?

    Any recommendation? I've read that redwings are good but that's a bit out of my budget.

    Yes but how did you know i was going to become a driver?
     
  8. You said uniforms.

    Try some different shoes on until you find something you like and can afford
    Insoles are also your friend.

    Because the best drivers are the ones hired off the street.

    So packager's don't get uniform? That's weird because on the site, i was applying for full time driver but once i got there for the group interview, they said packagers . Well start off as packagers at least.
