I was a driver helper this past peak and was wondering the chance of getting retained as a permanant package handler. I have a good friend that is a driver at the same center and is going to talk to the ct man. to try to help me out!
Thanks for all the info! My driver is also the steward at the center, does he have an infuence on the ct manager maybe a little more than some of the other drivers? I don't know I was just wondering if that would help my chances! He told me that I did a great job (which I really tried my best) and said that he would put a word in for me! I really want this job bad and IM trying everything I know to do! Thanks again!
Your driver is probably your best way to get in to UPS, especially if you were a good helper. I have been able to get 2 of my helpers in to UPS as package handlers but wouldn't have given them the time of day had they not busted their asses while on the road with me. I had one helper who frustrated me to the point where I handed him $10 and told him to take a cab back to the center. Get in touch with your driver and ask him to give you an honest assessment of your performance and then ask him if he would help you get in to the company on a permanent basis. Of course, this depends upon openings which may or may not exist at your center. Good luck!
