    So I went through a week of training for the seasonal driver position and passed all the tests. The Supervisor at my designated location just left me a VM and it dawned on me: I don't think I even want to take the position. There are obviously no guarantees they will keep me on after the holidays are through, especially considering I was in a training course with about 20 other people (a course which runs weekly) I'm sure there are a ton of other drivers wanting to stay on after peak is over. Basically I would be looking for another job in a couple of months. Plus to be honest the thought of driving that big truck around all day doesn't seem appealing to me. Does anyone have any thoughts on the inside warehouse positions? Maybe I would be better suited for that :dissapointed:

    Maybe you should just pre quit now before you waste anybody else's time or bandwidth

    At my center you'd be a seasonal preloader making a little more than 1/3 of a temp driver's salary and still be competing for a permanent preload spot. If you've got a solid permanent job opportunity with another company right now you should take it. But UPS has already invested money in your temp driver training and might invest more in your replacement so don't be surprised if you're put on the no hire blacklist.

    Why does every seasonal think the job is going to turn into a permanent position? After spending this much time and expense training you I can't believe UPS would just give you a job inside.

    But then again maybe they would just to punish you. I sure would hate to be you if UPS does keep you.

    because every step of the way they put that into your head
    "work hard and stand out" was said more times than I can count
    many of the trainers I met with over the week told the stories of "so and so started as a seasonal hire 30 years ago" etc
    now obviously im not that naïve but like I said its obvious they want you to bust your :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: for a couple months and after that what happens happens

    The job sucks blah blah blah, go and find something that suits you much better and is much less of a waste of time for you. Who cares what we think, we're not co workers.

    You'll never know until you try.
    Go for the driver's job and see if you like it.
    ​It was the best job I ever had.

    Of course you're going to be looking for another job after peak. That's why it's called "seasonal".

    Even the new permanent drivers who have made seniority face being laid off by February.

    I wonder how long it takes a seasonal to become a permanent when it takes 5-10 years for a regular part timer to get the spot. I don't know how that works. Could someone explain that?
