    The passengers were really anxious to go for a cruise on the Titanic as well. Don't be in a hurry to go driving until you've been around the company for some time and have had some time to talk to the drivers.

    or better yet, just grab the keys of a loaded package car along with a DIAD and drive right out the gates. At first they will be mad, but the anger will turn to sheer joy when you return 3 hours earlier than anyone else has ever managed to do on whatever run you do. They will no doubt shout "hosannah" as you drive through the gates for they will realize, the messiah hath arrived. A great party will be held and you will be award the job on a permanent basis. Of course in a few days, word about your prowess will reach the ears of those in the inner circle in Atlanta. Once that happens, a promotion to the executive board will surely happen. After that , in just a few years, I can see the letters "C.E.O." on your door. And I wouldn't be surprised within a decade, if you are being serenaded with "hail to the chief" as you walk to the podium to give your first state of the union speech as President of the United States of America to your adoring public.

    Welcome to ups and the teamsters, doesn`t matter what you have done or what you want to do or what you think you can do, its done by seniority.

    Put your name on the list and wait, thats all you can do. When it comes your turn make the most of it.

    Hope you signed your Union card!!

    I think I have a good chance in the hub where I'm at...a lot of the drivers are old...they look like they are gonna retire soon...I'm guessing I have a year to a year and a half wait to start driving...and to the ********* that's talking about spelling...who gives a ***** about spelling words correctly on a blog site...only a ********would....

    LOL Marty would be a great example to use in this situation, Over. We have 2 drivers here that have 30+ years in. They don't look like they are ready to retire any time soon. :knockedout:

    In my hub, all you have to do is find a center manager, go into his/her office and **************************** . Or tell them you have kids and you can't feed them. Thats what 90% of the women do in my hub. They can't drive stick shifts but are going full time in two years tops. I have observed this with my own eyes.

    The terms of service of this website are concrete , not hollow
    but of them you chose not to follow
    How much harder for you will it be
    when the rules are not spelled out for thee?
    Such is the confusing world of UPS
    where you follow written and unwritten rules to cover your _ss

    Well my chance was a freak of nature since was able to have an opportunity to be a full time driver 5 months from my start date.
