    Depends on how cool your driver is with it.

    It's brown and has the UPS logo on it. It's fine. Driver might say you won't need it cause you'll be working too hard to need more than a shirt and a tee shirt unless your in Alaska.

    It's not official uniform but your driver may be cool with it and let you slide... Now if a supe is riding around doing observations that may be your last day with UPS...

    The point is, that they give you a uniform for a reason. If they wanted you to wear a sweatshirt, then they would have given you a sweatshirt.

    OP, are you significantly overweight?

    If you work fast enough you could work with no clothes on.

    For my uniform all they give me is a pair of pants and one hot as hell heavy jacket nothing else. It was 65 on friday and I was sweating my balls off, I need something a little cooler, they wont give me a shirt of any kind.

    Ask your driver to let you borrow one of his for a couple of weeks.

    Good idea. I will have a helper in a few weeks and I'll offer mine. Seems that all the center gives the helpers now are brown pants and a jacket that they must wear all the time since they don't give them a shirt. Sucked for the helpers here last year since it was in the 70's a few days last peak in Atlanta. Looks to be warming up to the 70's next week here also so the helpers will be sweating tons. I just don't know why we can't provide them with a shirt.

    Yea I also will "loan" a shirt or two to my helper..also I have aqquired a regular Thinsulate Jacket and a spare pair of trousers (no need to wash clothes every nite) . And when it comes to shoes, I tell him to wear his most comfortable walking shoes no matter what color or type! BC---> (definitly not Boston College:cursing:)

    When I was helping last year, my driver told me I could wear a white t-shirt. The two shirts I had were beat to h*ll after Peak but I didn't sweat all of my water weight. -Rocky
