Hello: I just contacted a UPS Freight facility in my area. They put me on the phone with the hiring manager. The manager said they are in need of hiring 5 more CDL Dockworkers. I asked him a couple of questions about the position. He said the starting pay is $17.95 a hour. After a year you would reach top pay of $21.00. He also said you need a year or two of experience to be an Over the Road driver. I guess Over the Road drivers make a lot more. He said the 5 positions are all full-time. When you are hired at UPS Freight, are you guaranteed full-time hours. I know UPS Freight is non-union. When I got off the phone w/ him, I called a driving school in my area. I could get my CDL License in the next 6 weeks full-time. My question is would it be worth it. The cost of going to this school is around $6,000. I would have my CDL "A" License, with hazmat, double, triple, tanker, etc. I am really looking for those who work in UPS Freight to help me out. Are the medical benefits and vacation the same for UPS Freight as they are for UPS. I know the pay is a little bit lower for UPS Freight then UPS as a feeder. The manager said you can make $70-$80,000 a year with some experience as an Over the Road driver. Is that true? I hope to get some responses back here soon. I need to make a decision about this pretty fast. Oh, one more thing. Is the retirement the same for UPS Freight as it is for UPS?
