Is it a good time to get into UPS & make it a career?

Thoughts on getting into UPS and paying your dues for a shot at driving at a young age in this generation? Mostly concerned with future automation and whether or not it’s still worth it?

I wouldn't count on it being a career anymore. But there is still some time to make some money. When everything goes downhill for the delivery industry, you'll get government assistance for job retraining.

Get a refrigeration (HVAC) license, hire some more that have their license, and get rich.

Should be able to average $1500/day depending on what area you choose to locate to.

Driving is a lot of work. You cant depend on the pension to be there. Control your future revenue. That service industry is going to be a wide open field shortly.
Just my opinion from watching my friends make $100/hr+.

Your friends are blowing smoke up your ass. Nobody is making $400k doing HVAC.

Yes sir they are. I saw their W2s. One personally made over $500Gs with his crews working 6 days a week.
It's commercial work not residential.

My best friends neighbor owns one of the largest hvac companies around here.


He makes bank. The guys doing the work don’t make very much.
Exactly. Like I said, get your license, hire licensed techs, and make money off of them.

The headaches are short term (the labor pool isnt great everywhere) and you can retire without a greater chance of shoulder, hip, and knee surgeries...earlier.
