    Does anyone know how long it usually take for the MVR and background to clear?

    See you at 6pm in a few months when you take my route over.

    Honestly though depends on the building you’re in. Some start days later. Some show up for weeks after class waiting for a route to train on.

    It took me 70 something total days to get my 30 in....some days you show up and immediately get sent home. Until you graduate you are nothing more than a temp. Focus on the task at hand and just don't have expectations as far as money, time, etc.

    Remember, nothing good ever comes from something in a van.

    My bad... the OPs query was about the mvr check and background. Not about integrad or the qualifying period.

    MVR is quick, but calling around to verify your previous employers may take a while longer

    Get your first year of safe driving and put your name on the Feeder list in the following fall.

    I see, accord to hr we just had 9 guys retire in the last few months, how will that effect my likelyhood of getting hours?

    Just a suggestion...
    Have a notebook, at home, where you write down:
    -the days you work;
    -hours worked that day;
    -route you are on;
    -any major concerns that day and;
    -conversations with management.

    Don't run around telling everyone you're doing this. Keep your mouth shut.

    This could pay off in the future.

    We now own you. Don't complain to management about anything. Do your route as instructed, don't hit nothing.. . And... Don't complain about anything.. We'll DQ you for a bad attitude.
     
  19. And you wonder why the new guys quit

    It's because it takes a special kind of person to be a driver at UPS
