    Hey everyone, I’m new to the brown cafe and I have a question (that I’m sure has been answered) that I couldn’t find the answer to. I worked as a seasonal PVD and I’m trying to get hired as a package handler and eventually work my way up to being a driver. I secured an interview for UPS Freight, but from what I understand, they are basically two completely different companies?! Say I got the job with freight, would it be hard to move to parcel later on? BTW I’m still in contact with my Manager from parcel and I have a great reference form a good buddy that’s been in in the company for 20 years and is in feeder.

    thank you in advance for all your feedback and any advice you can provide.

    They are two completely different companies, you can't transfer from one to another.

    Your buddy's reference means nothing. None of us has any pull to make hiring or driving happen. The ONLY road to driving is to get hired on and apply for any openings.

    Your seniority will not transfer over, and you would have to start over

    Thank you everyone, so basically freight isn’t a good idea if I’m looking to make a kind of good money in the future?!

    I've worked here for 2 years and STILL have chicken legs.
    When do I finally get the fabled UPS legs?

    The only road to driving is to get hired on and wait for the opportunity to apply for any openings.

    I try to give them a chance to do the right thing before I use my powers.

    Are you really getting butt hurt over “your” avatar that was found on google? If this truly is YOUR avatar, then let me show my respect for being such a great illustrator for South Park. ‍♂️
