Can you imagine if UPS made us pay for THEIR equipment.I work at a flex center part time for the easy extra money. They have 4 companies in that center that have a fleet of delivery vans. All 4 contracted companies are struggling to keep people. One HR lady sits in the break room 6 days a week 12 hours a day on salary trying to get people in for interviews. I talk to her she says she can't stop working so much until she finds at least 10 new hires and she gets upset because management for her company keeps firing drivers.
She asked me if wanted to and I asked her about the job. They pay a taxed 160 dollars per route that can be 9 to 12 hours depending on your performance, no health insurance and 50 dollars gets deducted twice a month for the provided equipment such as the van, GPS, and GPS mount.
Also they are contracted so I assume Amazon can decide they don't like a certain company at anytime and all those people are screwed.
Those days were long gone before Orion, more around the time EDD was introduced.Seen this on YouTube thought it was interesting. UPS needs to start concertrating more on business accounts. Before the Orion days, our customers use to know who their driver was and what time to expect them. That's the one thing we had over our competition. Amazon is going away sooner or later. What you think?
The worst part of the job was pulling up a private driveway in an unmarked van without a recognizable uniform at 8 o’clock at night. I was seriously afraid of getting shot.
