    Given today's social climate, I would refuse a female helper.

    So I'm about to be starting as a helper for the following few weeks. Looking at this thread it seems there are more drivers than helpers, so from any helpers out there: Any tips on how to handle the job during winter time or is there anything you wish you knew before you started working as a delivery helper?

    When my helper is on the car he is there to work, not eat. We don't stop for lunch.

    I get a helper for 2.99 to 4.99 hours.
    I pick the helper up after lunch. I'm sure they'd rather make the money than have to sit unpaid

    I asked my helper this very question and that was his answer.

    ou're a seasonal employee who will only work a few more weeks. Your driver has years in with the company and knows how it operates. You should shut your mouth before you come off more stupid than you already have.

    Excuse me ma'am but, The average time my drivers have been working and driving for UPS is 6 months. I ask each one how long they've been with the company. This particular one is almost a year. So, spare me your arrogance and ignorance.

    I'm on my fourth driver because I got my regular route assigned to me when I started with my 3rd driver who was an awesome guy but only 2 months on the job. They moved him and kept me on the route and that's how I got the 4th driver who asked me to run a second daily route because I happen to be the best driver helper he has ever had help him. On my 3rd day I realized he was a typical underachiever like many of you girls.

    Hate to break it to you cupcake
    But the reason drivers don’t keep the same helper everyday is because they figured out helper was a :censored2:bag

    Actually, I AM a girl and have been delivering boxes longer than you’ve probably been alive. I used to be a runner who could out work most of the guys I worked with, and did because I felt like I needed to prove something.

    Difference between you and the rest of us “underachievers” is that we hit a point in our career where we realized the pace we were keeping wasn’t conducive to walking upright in our old age. Some drivers are fortunate and won’t have to deal with that, the rest of us will. When you’re back to flipping burgers, or driving the kiddie carpool or your comfy desk job, we will still be out here “underachieving”. Good luck to you and especially your next driver.

    How much do you give you helper on his last day. If I had the same helper since November I would always give him 50 to 100 bucks cash in a Christmas card on their last day ..., Exept for the :censored2: helpers that steal my wallet

    Dress warm if your in the cold ass states. Also if you are out there in snow buy a good pair of boots . When your feet get wet and cold it’s all over . Hopefully you will get a down to earth driver that treats you the way he would want to be treated . I always try to pretend I’m having fun out there and joke around. I never had a helper quit on me yet
