I am a 30 year old woman from Illinois and I am looking at joining UPS as a package delivery driver. A friend of the family who has been with the company told me about the job and he said I would be a good fit. He drives the trucks. I do not have any experience driving those kinds of vehicles but I am very interested and I have several years of experience loading and moving heavy boxes. I love physical jobs. The problem is that the locations in Illinois are hiring for full time seasonal drivers. My friend told me that if I work hard they would most likely hire me permanently because I have the added bonus that I am a woman amongst men. What do you guys think? Is it hard to learn how to drive the package delivery trucks? Right now I am working at a company making $45,000 a year and I want a change.
