Hey everyone, just passed my tests yesterday to become a "Seasonal Full-time Package car Driver" up in CT. My run will be Oct 1-Dec 31. I'm pretty excited about it, I've always wanted to work for UPS and my hopes is for an opportunity down the road. The girl in HR told me that on their current 6:1, the last 1 hired was in '09, but I don't know how many of the six since then have moved. She said it could be an opportunity next year, or 5-6 from now. I don't mind be patient, it gives me time to perform the best I can so I will stand out if/when the opportunity ever presents itself. My only concern is for those that have done seasonal, what do you guys do in your in between time? If there is no opportunity after dec, the next season I think was like June or so until sept, then oct to till dec again, so I'm just worried about dec-June. Do you guys just collect unemployment or find something else in the meantime? Also, I've been reading and wondering, what is the difference between a cover and seasonal driver? Is cover there year-round, but just works when needed? Thanks for the info in advance, I'm still pretty excited about starting regardless of status, and I'm just gonna do my best and hope it pays off. P.s.- for my road test, they gave me their oldest, worst running truck to prove myself; it was a short time away from being junked, you didn't even need the clutch to shift gears, for the hill start, it had to be in first, and then just jump from the brake and floor it cuz ebrake didn't hold even the empty truck, and clutch didn't do squat. Quite the experience, but no stalls, and the sup that went with me was surprised and told me for most drivers, he usually had to drive that truck back because they gave up on the hill stop. I was proud being only 21 and never driven a stick in anything bigger than a pickup.
