    Find out where they post bid lists in your hub. When one is posted which you like what it says, you scribble your name and then wait for the call

    To answer with all I know would require days of work and much more bandwidth than this forum allows.

    Good advice to become a driver !!
    1 show up every day on time
    2 stay away from the clowns
    3 keep your mouth shut
    4 do exactly as they tell you ( unless its unsafe to do so )
    5 stay away from drinking and driving
    6 Drugs ?? NO way
    7 follow all methods
    8 don't go out and tattoo your arms neck or legs
    9 keep a clean cut look about your self
    10 pull your pants up
    appearance and customer perceived image means the world to this company, yes we go by seniority to move up, but they will DQ several senior guys, to get to the right one !!! Unwritten rule, but believe me they get to the ones they want !!
    stay positive !!

    I would sign up to be a Xmas helper. Your driver will probably be given a board for you to record at least 20 stops. This will help you familiarize with the DIAD, although it'll more than likely be an older model. The biggest benefit here for you is the first hand knowledge of what it takes to be a UPS driver. Everywhere we go people always say, "I want to be a UPS driver"! But they have no idea mentally or physically what the job entails, as some centers have experienced with off the street hires quitting or getting fired shortly after being hired. You'll get the valuable experience of what is awaiting for you if you decide to take this mission.
