    Hello all... To make a long story short, I have always wanted to be a package delivery driver for UPS. However, I never knew how to make this "dream" come true. I am currently a teacher and I am fed up with the educational system. In other words, I am ready to make this dream of mine come true. Any suggestions/ideas that may help me pursue this?? Thanks!

    You'll make more of a difference sticking with teaching. This place will drag even the most optimistic person down.

    Trust me, teaching is not worth it in any way whatsoever, ha... It has changed so much the past few years it is definitely a downward spiral of chaos

    Start working at UPS part-time and build up seniority. Wait until you're high enough on the seniority ladder and they need drivers. That's pretty much it.

    I mean, in theory you could be an off-the-street hire, but without prior driving experience, the odds are against you.

    In the meantime, don't quit your day job. :)

    yeah I'm not planning on it until something is set in stone ha.. I do have a CDL since I'm a coach, so I have had that experience for several years (even though it is totally different).

    If their user name is any indication. The state of Mississippi has one of the worst/lowest paying education systems in the country.

    Beats me. I would imagine it's Federal. You get interrogated about whether you are going to cross state lines. If you want to maintain a hazmat endorsement, you gotta pay for a background check through homeland security.

    Gotta be tough as nails bro. Ups driving is more mental than physical.
