    So I'm not a employee but currently trying to get a part time gig package handling. My question is since ups mostly promotes within will my previous driving and delivering experience help me at all?

    Hourly promotions are bid on and the currency is seniority, the longer you're with the company the better your chances of winning the bid. No experience necessary!
    Since you have driving experience I'd suggest you try to apply for a driver position as an outside hire, there your experience would matter. Seems based on some threads they're a lot of areas hurting for drivers and inside part timers aren't going for the jobs.

    I've been doing a vending route for 5 years. For awhile I was actually driving the same trucks as ups uses. .. I would apply straight for a driver spot but my area never post the job, just the package handler. Well besides the seasonal but I couldn't afford to give up my job for a seasonal spot.

    Well, just take a large bottle of ky for the interview, and tell them you're ready for "any position" should be hired on the spot.

    When/if you get hired you'll feel the same way about management.

    Hell yeah! I let them cram their package in. Been taking it since January 08. They usually prefer me grabbing my ankles with a smile on my face.

    You're right upstate... It was stupid of me to say ky. They like to give it with no lube at all. Not even spit.

    You obviously haven't loaded freight in years have you? Funny I read complaints about management and improper loads from drivers, I forgot.... Try loading in Phoenix heat going 360+ per hour and them wanting more. Doubling everyday and dealing with that is probably just as bad as prison rape.

    It will not help you get a driving job once you are a part-timer. Driving jobs are attained by seniority, not experience.
