I tried many times also ...not 2 have one ...
They don't listen to part timers...
I hate having a helper
I would rather have a preloader as a helper than some that dont know nothing about UPS
I had a young nursing student as a helper for 4 years straight.
She was smoking hot.
She still is......went to her wedding this summer.
Her husband is a lucky guy.
Exactly it is all about the driver. Every helper I had in the last 10 years I actually still talk to through texting we would always try to have fun to make the best I’d prob one of the worst ty experiences this new DH ever had . Sometimes you have to Cuz if they quit on you your pretty much by yourself that day till they find you a new helper (been there done that and it sucks ). People don’t realize your truck is so packed that almost impossible to find a box at times so you skip to next stop .. Can’t do that too much or you will be driving back to everywhere .. most years I will dump my 6000 and 8000
I’m 2/4 year progression as a FT driver... so I’m not making that “5 times that much on overtime” than what helpers make. That’s not to say I still don’t make good money, but since I have no pick ups on my peak trip (huge split) because it’s mostly all Residential, 75% resi, 25% commercial, I don’t get tips. Besides buying them lunch/dinner, what else can I possibly give them? I can’t share half of zero tips with my helper...
Along with cursive writing
Have we given up on paragraphs and sentences
Look I use to be helpful.
That's creative thinking.
I refused to take a helper and they oblidged me surprisingly.
You'd prefer some junkie on meth who puts NDA under bulk?
Isn’t that where it goes
I refuse to accept responsibility for an employee of UPS who was, knowingly (by UPS), not TRAINED PROPERLY by the company that hired them. I have never, and will never, sign or give my helper any forms or safety materials. I will drive safely, do the job as I do it the rest of the 11 months of the year, but you will be riding at your own risk.
The only tip I give my helper is the daily safety tip.
I don't care how cool you are with a driver.. if you miss a day and a family member didn't pass then you are a *! Commitment is everything. Retraining sucks!
I always took care of my helper and i always gave them a Christmas card with a healthy tip
Is there a "how to" list for helpers? If not I want to write one tonight
The season is near! Last peak I actually worked less hours than normal, ugh. I kept telling myself to just send my helper on their way after their guaranteed hours were reached but by the end of the day I kept them even to deliver my misroutes at the end. I got lazy AF.
Reliability and safety supersedes all else. Gimme the 80 year, I ain't trippin. Last year had a lovely older gal who everyone else complained about but I was fine with.
My only advice is never invite your significant other to help you. I did that once and the arguments we had in between stops in the dark, wet weather, while customers were complaining why their ham-in-a-box was melting and wet is a nightmare I will never forget.
