    I’m posting on this thread to get advice from former or current ups delivery drivers on how the job will be when I first start. Also if you can give me some insight on how you guys were trained to learn how to navigate. I heard one way is to print out a map in the facility with all the pin points. If you guys have a picture of how that map looks can you post it on this thread please. Thank you

    I notice myself getting over whelmed too. I guess I’ve been waiting for two years at ups to be 21 and don’t want to fail. Thanks man

    Do a search, read more, post less. Ask specific questions, once you have read, trained and done the job.

    1) because it's one of the rules on this forum;
    2) management monitors this website;
    3) it's to protect your anonymity.

    If you don't know how to do it...here's how:

    - hover the pointy thing over your name in the upper right corner toolbar;
    - a menu will drop down;
    - "username change" is in the lower right corner, third from the bottom of this drop down menu;
    - click on it.

    It's for your protection and very easy to do.
    Think of a new, cute username.
