Hello, Been lurking in the forums here since 2014 peak. I joined last October and so far have worked in just about every area of the HUB. I don't know if its a good thing but my supervisor likes to move me a lot so I've done time loading, unloading, sort and smalls. So far I like the job because the people I work with all seem pretty cool, kind of like a frat house vibe. The only annoying thing which is minor really, is that you always have 4-5 different supervisors telling you to do something else and thus I always get asked "Who told you to do that?" They really should just communicate more cause the process does get old. Anyway, like I said, a minor annoyance that I can put up with. I recently got my name on the list for package car driver. I've read and heard that sometimes it takes years to get called, but the my local H.R. person said that demand for drivers is up now due to the combination of the list being short and peak coming up. I'd like to get some input from the veteran PC drivers, as I really want to do well with this job should I be given a chance. In particular, I would like to find out: - What are some of the common mistakes that rookies make while out on their route? - In my hub, I was told that the driving test involves a manual transmission, which is ok, I can drive a manual, but how different is it from driving a manual package car? - Are there different shifts for Package Car drivers? or is it just one shift? If there are different shifts, what are the time slots? - I heard newbies are given the most difficult routes, what makes a route difficult? - How are routes planned? Are we given maps and a list of delivery addresses and then its up to us to layout and plan the route?.....or is everything computerized and technology tells us where to go next? Sorry for all the questions, this may sound crazy, but I REALLY want this job and the challenges that go with it. I know people say its one of the toughest jobs in the HUB but I truly think based on my personality (I'm really organized) and physical ability(workaholic by nature), that I am built for this type of job.
