    Hey guys!
    Yesterday was my first day as a seasonal “Driver Helper” here in Ohio. Which is in reality a cart driver. Obviously from reading the threads I’ve realized the likelihood of obtaining a part-time job are slim to none. I’m just looking for tips to help me while I’m living the UPS life for the next month.

    I was with my trainer yesterday with load of 32 packages which was a breeze, we were done within a few hours. Tried to get farmiliar with the Diad and routine.

    Today being my first day out wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Leaving an infonotice didn’t KILL me, but calling my supervisor to walk me through it did .

    Any tips on the weather?! As we’re expecting rain all day tomorrow..Like will people look at me even crazier if I’m in a poncho?! (Or is that doing too much) As far as my deliveries- How many do they usually push on a cart driver daily? And what did I do wrong if a delivery didn’t clear from the screen after stop completeing it? It processed after scanning and everything.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I’ve got that part down, but for some reason even after that there were 2 stops still left on my list? (Made sure both only had one package)

    Could be they were in your EDD but were not part of the packages that were dropped off for you.

    Wear whatever keeps you dry don't worry about other people and don't worry if it matches the uniform. Most centers don't care as long as you show up everyday.

    Once you learn the info notice and how to get a Sig the rest is a breeze. Write stuff down now to memorize it later. Right now it's kinda light. You'll be doing much more later.

    Good luck and stay dry.

    Oh stay away from people named @Indecisi0n

    Not at all true.

    Getting hired full time after Christmas is not likely.

    Getting hired part time here after Christmas is 99% a yes in my area if you show up and are a decent worker.
