    Look for other work. Where I was it died after peak. 10-15 drivers laid off. There is no way anyone can survive on a couple days a week if any days period. I learned there's no guarantees when you'll work. If you can afford to be unemployed and pick up side jobs then go for it. If you have a family, mortgage, etc start looking for other full time employment. Best of luck

    If you’re going to UPS for pre-load, don’t. Management is awful. You pay a union who can’t get a contract signed. So you have thousands of dollars sitting in UPS’ pocket. A real trash company. They’re a billion dollar company, with a 10 cent philosophy.

    The best part about UPS is they have no problems hiring people as managers who’ve never loaded a truck in their lives, but they teach you how to load, though you’ve been there for years.

    My biggest gripe so far is the socks. They make YOU pay for them from a side company, $38 for 6 pair of cheap brown socks with UPS logo, and don't let you wear anything else with their shorts. Yes, that's my biggest gripe. I'm that petty. Can't believe they can force you to wear a part of their uniform that isn't even a part of their provided uniform, but I can work with that. Bout to start embroidering some brown socks myself, and make a fortune.

    Hey guys. New member here. I had a interview for a full time delivery driver. The HR rep told me that it is a permanent position, but I take that with a grain of salt. I wanted to get advice on the what to do because she told me that I’d have to quit amazon before I could even start the hiring process due to a conflict of interest. I don’t really want to do that, but I don’t want to pass on the benefits, and something that could be beneficial long term. The only other good thing I have as a back up is my cdl license that I just got a month ago. Should I take the risk and give it a go? Or pass up on the offer? I truly appreciate the feedback.

    Amazon will most likely take you back if you fail at UPS. Generally, UPS doesn’t. So give it a shot.

    Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been thinking long and hard about it. I’ll give her a call Monday letting her know and hopefully it goes well from there.

    I was a seasonal feeder driver this last peak, I managed not to hit anything.

    When will they mail me my 2.5 monrh circle of honor patch?
    I would like to wear it with pride while driving my Swift tractor.
