Hello everyone, I was a Fedex Ground "contractor" on the west coast for a little over 8 years. I recently left the company because I was tired of always spending my weekends fixing/worrying about the truck, among other reasons. I left on good terms, giving a 30 day notice. How DIFFICULT would it be for me to get on as a UPS driver? I can definately do the work. I usually averaged 120 stops a day 250 pieces/ 20 pickups 150 pieces. I'm still young and fit I just want a JOB where I can work for a future. I get along with all the UPS drivers on my route always joking with them, etc. I know you can go the the upsjob website and I have. I have noticed that they are hiring for package drivers in the area where the UPS drivers I joke with are out of. Do you think I could call that center DIRECTLY and talk to someone explaining to them my experience and determination to be one of their drivers? Or would they just refer me back to the UPSJOBS website? I have a way with words and if I could just TALK to them I think they would like me Realistically though, do you think they would not like me right off the bat because I was former competition? And also you have to be a package handler at UPS for awhile...which I can't live on that income. Do I have a fighting chance? I want to be a brownie, damnit! Thanks in advance for your responses!
