Hello Everyone, I am new to the site, this is a great place, a lot of good discussions. Need some guidedance/support...my husband, who is from Europe, just got hired as a feeder driver...he is (was) very excited!! He has been a truck driver for over 20 years, driving all over Europe, so he has the experience of driving on both sides of the road, and yes, he speaks perfect english. Well, he just started this week, going through all the orientation, and he is blown away by all the rules!! He doesn't like the fact he will be on call 24/7, and working mostly nights, but he knew that going in. One guy will say to him, you can possibly go permenant by August!!, and then another say, you won't be going permanent for another 3-4 years. This is the best job opportunity he has had since he has been here, and I keep trying to sound encouraging, but only on his second day he is sounding discouraged. I have a real hard time getting it into his head, that no matter who he drives for, he will be working nights, unless he buys his own truck, and then he will be long hauling just to pay that off! We don't have any kids, and are just married a year, and I really want the best for him, and to me, UPS is the company to get that from. Last night, he did some driving and backing up, tripping, and his supervisor said he did a really great job. I think the thing that bothered him is that there were 3 Supervisors in the room, and they only said threatening things, like, "One guy didn't fill out his log book correctly, he was stopped by the police, so we had to let him go." My husband said everyone just looked at him like he was crazy, you would fire a guy over that??? So, any encouraging words I can tell him to stick it out??
