    this question is for ups drivers who have or haven’t failed on their first 30 day training. Do you have advice on things I should watch out for and do great so I won’t fail my 30 day training behind the wheel? Thank you

    The more paranoid you are about qualifying, the greater the chances are you won't.

    I was pretty bad during training and still passed. They must’ve really needed drivers.

    I was pretty bad at it for over 20 years and they still let me do it.

    Starting class for package car driving this week...

    I can hardly imagine what I’m in for there haha. I have tried studying the material they give me often and check myself on it.

    If all goes ok with passing the class, I was wondering about the 30 days a driver has to log to be “qualified”...

    If a newer driver works during the “peak” time do those days go towards their 30, like any other week day of the year?

    I heard someone try and say the peak days don’t work that way for a new driver.

    One last question, it seems it takes several months for some new drivers to end up driving very consistently... would you guys say the same?

    Guys might drive a day or two then be in the hub back on their part time loading/unloading position...


    Thanks for any help with this...
     
  17. If they hired you as a full-time driver and not a seasonal, you can get your 30 days would count. If you was hired as a seasonal it won't count.

    As far as driving steady, it varies by location.


    Good luck

    Yes, i got a permanent full time bid. Forgot to list that.

    Thanks for your reply!
     
  19. Then you can most definitely qualify.

    Just don't hit anything!!

    How can you "...starting class...this week." and have a full time bid?

    The company has an annoying habit of misleading new hires into thinking they are permanent, full time, forever employees when, in fact, they could be gone after peak.
