Another new guy


Active Member
So tomorrow I have my first interview for a full time package delivery driver.

Does it really take a long time to get hired?


Coronavirus? What coronavirus?
An outside hire?

Expect to have to earn respect. Most guys (at least here) come from the inside, having to pay their dues as a part time worm for years before they turn into the special butterfly that is a package car driver.

Can't answer for the long time getting hired. You'll have to have a background check done. Took me about two weeks, but that was a few years ago. Might not be the same for you.

Being a center managers brother in law would increase your odds, so check if yours has a sister available. (Making an assumption here. Sue me.)

If you do get hired, find an older driver, and kiss up to him/her in exchange for advice. Yes, they do know better than management. There's a reason they've survived for 20+ years at UPS.

Good luck.

So interview went good. I’m taking my DOT exam today and they started the background check.

I know the 22.4 has something to do with new contracts. Is 22.4 different from full time?

Sorry for the stupid question
