    During the strike of 97 we were not allowed access to the UPS parking lot.
    If something happens to a Managers vehicle, THEN it is UPS parking lot. It is not if something happens to any of our vehicles, though.

    Poop Head Lovin' every minute of it!

    Was the company aware of the dismal turnout?.

    If so, why?

    There isn't any circumstance where the owner of a parking lot would be responsible for a thief stealing your catalytic converter.

    I would think if you paid to park somewhere, like a stadium or airport, maybe garage, the owner would be liable for damages? I know it’s not the same.

    Nope
    How can the Owner of a property be held responsible for the actions of a thief?
    Nobody forced you to park someplace where your vehicle could be damaged or stolen.

    If your vehicle is in your driveway and gets stolen are you going to sue yourself?

    Is a Parking Garage Responsible for Damaged or Stolen Cars?

    Doesn't fit your example.
    All you mentioned is paying to park.
    Nothing about relinquishing control of your keys.
    Even if you give your keys to a valet and they park your car. If a thief takes your catalytic converter the valet is not responsible for the actions of a thief.

    If you look most if not all parking lots whether you pay or not have a sign posted saying we are not responsible for anything that happens to your vehicle. At least they all do here or anywhere I've been.

    UPS has cameras watching parking lots but just to catch package thieves and employee misconduct. Not to protect employee vehicles.

    rod #1 on Upstates "list"

    They could have caught me doing many things that would have been considered no-no's if they had cameras outside at my old building. ----but NEVER stealing---well maybe a few "office supplies".

    lol you guys really don't like PVDs, huh...

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    This company has a reputation in it's brand and professional ettiquite. We don't tear ruts in people's yards, or leave the keys in the vehicle so some crazy person can take off in it and hit a bunch of :censored2:.
    PVDs are a major public safety threat. Uber, Grubhub, Amazon are signing metaphorical death pacts with inexperienced drivers.
    So you've guessed right. Nobody likes PVDs.

    Well, I haven't started yet, but if there was an opening for a FT Driver, I'd have taken that in a heartbeat. PVD is ALL that was available.
    As for me, I have several years experience Truck Driving, I have several years experience delivering pizza (a little bit of uBer). I'm not the guys who's going to get lost, or make dumb decisions delivering in the hood. I'm not the guy who gets into accidents, or get traffic tickets.
    BUT!
    Some of the other applicants...some of them looked like soccer moms and college kids. first impression only, they looked like they probably don't have much experience on the road, definitely don't look like they could handle a 70lbs package... but who knows??

    Insurance, I would guess they do like everyone else that deals with delivery, and buy add-on insurance for the driver in case of a wreck. My van, I keep very well maintained. but, it's over ten years old. I bought it for $2k If something happens with it (and it shouldn't) I'll just buy another one
