    Do Ups Package Drivers really make $70k yearly? I was browsing on google and came across this tidbit. Is this correct.?

    I made 84 k last year with bonus and overtime. I pay nothing for insurance for my family and the company pays over $400 a week to the Teamsters to fund my pension.

    Don't ask me how much vacation I get a year.

    How long have you been with the company and do the jobs allow use of phone map for direction or any kind of Map for routing those packages ?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yes I took many days off last year and made 73k. This year I'm shooting for over 80k. Come do our job though then tell us we make too much!!!!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    $70K is about the average for a driver who gets little to no overtime.

    I would if I could but I don't think Brown will hire me straight to the truck.

    At the very least.
    At the end of this Febuary I have earned over $16,500.
    Easily, I will make $90k this year.
    Also, I gained my 7th week of vacation.
    So, adding 7 weeks plus 5 paid holidays and one option day, I get paid for working only ten months out of the year.
    Plus totally free health insurance.
    To earn all this, all one has to do is trade precious time away from the ones they love and the things they would like to do.

    You also need to sign your body away to UPS because at the end it will be worn out.

    Area knowledge is a learned process. $92,000 last year and I am a cover driver most of the time.
