I been working at UPS for 3 months now as a preloader, and things seem to be going great so far and really fast. The drivers I load for are very pleased with my load quality and I don't misload much I get 1 every two weeks I noticed and I get along with management but anyway one day last week when I was at my hub I was talking to the District Manager and I asked him how long does it take to become a driver at this hub and to my surprise he told me about a month. I was totally floored with that response because I heard that it took years to become a driver. He then proceeded to tell me that we have a bid sheet up right now by the office for driver positions and I should sign up if I was interested. So at the end of the sort when everything was done I signed out at the station and went to the bid sheet and saw that they were looking for full-time package car drivers so I signed the sheet not thinking they will not even consider me frfr. I was the first to do so and later on four other signed. The next day after the sort was over one of the supervisors asked me for my drivers licence and he made a copy of it and then he got back with me a day later and gave me paper work to take a DOT physical which I passed a couple of days ago. Now I have a Road Test with the same supervisor in a couple of days and my operations supervisor will let me take a drive in it before the test but my question is this is this really happening cause I just hit my 3 month mark a day ago and for me to become a full-time driver that really fast whats the catch? do i have to wait to become a FT driver based on seniority once I hopefully pass this road test and UPS driving school.
