    How long as most people waited to start as a peak season driver? I have been calling everyday like I'm supposed to.

    I'd love to know when I'll get started too. I was told they would contact me regarding classes. It's been a few days and no word yet. Sucks being in limbo wanting to work for ups and knowing other jobs are on the table.

    I'm in the same shoes. I finished Integrad almost a month ago. I pop into the local facility every week just to remind them that I'm willing to work. Nothing yet. Very frustrating.

    I was considered a peak driver one year and didn't drive a single time, I was used as a helper all Christmas. They didn't have enough trucks, routes or whatever back then. See if you can help until a driver position opens up, then you will be way ahead on the DIAD part of it, but they may not be using too many of those either.

    If it was me and I wanted to work...I'd be calling or showing up more often than once a week.
