I've been a Upser for almost 2 years now, it's by far the best job I've ever had. Physically demanding though it may be, It's a great gig for any one who can get used to the speed and moderately heavy lifting. I want to become a ground driver, I was driver-helper for peak season and I believe it's some thing I can do. The main reason I'm hesitant to apply to be a driver is because I have zero experience with the brown box trucks. Does U.p.s. take the time to train people to drive these large vehicles? What are some of the most important steps to take to ensure that I pass the road test? If there is already a thread for these sort of questions than I apologize.
