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

    Does it really take a long time to get hired?

    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
     
  13. Lesser paying job
