Ok, I might start working at UPS soon and as wondering how much do they pay starting drivers when they become full time? What are the regular raises? Is part time preloading harder?
.......but decided I'm going to finish my degree first, though the money was very tempting.
You don't need to be concerned about how much they pay drivers for a long ,long time. More than 10 years here.
PLEASE finish your degree now because 10, 15, 20 years down the road you will be glad you did. You can go driving anytime because your seniority to bid on such jobs continues to accrue as you work PT, taking advantage of any tuition reimbursement and finishing your degree.
Days go by, weeks go by, semesters go by......time flys. I finished my degree before going driving and I'm just now benefiting regarding my future plans after retirement.
PS-the company may sweet talk you into going into management after you graduate. You may want to weigh those offers carefully.
I see people say they work only 3.5 or 4 hours on a 5 hour shift. Does UPS give you breaks or 15's on a 5 hour shift or is your shift length based on how many boxes there are on that particular day?
We dont allow ptime cover drivers, all package car drivers are fulltime, minus the parttime air dept.wakyzachyQuote:
Is it really so long? My lord. People people, here in jersey spots are always open for full time driving. Ive been asked so many times to switch over and Im not kidding.
705red6 Months to a year in chicago for driving, over 7 for 22.3 combo jobs now.Today 08:46
AMwestsidewormawow we go driving after a year or little more here it seems. I didn't sign the list last year and someone who was hired after me went driving (been here over 2.5 years). My name came up this year (actually signed it) but decided I'm going to finish my degree first, though the money was very tempting.
Are you guys talking about "Cover driving" 40 hrs a week(still part-time status)
Full Time Senority Driver Bid positions.(full-time status).There's a big differece.
also,your chances of moving up in any positions at UPS are greater at Major Hubs then at smaller bldgs and centers.
