Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

Putting in 2 weeks mid-packet.

    Then quit my guy, no one is stopping you. Are you looking for some type of comfort on here from us or what? Job is not for everybody.

    You have nothing to lose man. Try and relax a little. We've all been there trying to qualify. The worst that happens is you'll go back to preload

    I don't think this job is for anyone really. Looking around at us drivers doing it for more than a decade in the AM, damn near everyone of us is pretty beat up

    exactly, the OP is union (preload) and should at least ask why the training packet has not been followed. Ask a steward first. UPS will nail you for not following methods, the roles should reverse.

    Stick it out dude I can’t see them dqing you if you are getting the route done in a reasonable amount of time. Peak is around the corner they are gonna need everyone they can. UPS is a good job but they do screw you.

    With a CDL A, u really should aim at the tractor trailer driving, not package vehicles.

    Good luck either way.

    If you quit, even with putting your notice in, they will most likely mark you as non-rehireable

    If you think that is hard, you are going to be in for a real surprise when peak comes and you are doing 400+ stops with a helper out of two separate trucks, breaking off to do air and get those 100+ businesses done by 5, and being out blind in the dead of winter. You're going to be hating life and miserable.

    Anyways, good luck, I don't know what thats like though cuz I only do like 40-60 stops and drive for IDK maybe 300-400 miles. My heat in truck works amazing and I don't have to pee in a bottle to get my S* done.

    ups driver is a pretty miserable way to make a living. guarantee you that most companies do not expect you to show up early for your job so they can give you dirty, disgusted looks and try to scold and question you , off the clock, about previous days performance. i ve done it for 42 years now, and truly would not suggest this company to anyone

    no issue with that, like i say, i ve been driving now for 40 years , employed for 42. you get used to it, but, when you tell your friends some of the juvenile crap we hear and are instructed to do, most wont believe you. like group streching in morning, or when mngm"t gives a liittle speech and insists on a group hoorah, or how about when we have to stand inside our little yellow lines, like grade school or worse; oh well

    It’s usually a divorce or two that keep people here

    Wrong :))

    I went seasonal driving one year, didn’t make the cut due to seniority stuck in for another year and went full time.

    I know a guy who is on his third attempt now.
    This really is a sweet gig once you get used to it, there isn’t much else I’d rather do. I come from a family of tradesmen and small business owners. They might make more than me at times, but they have a lot more stress and uncertainty than me.
     
  20. Where to start. I dq'd my first try...30 years ago. It's such a long story but I never quit. I've been

    here nearly 40. And no, not divorces- I'm too young. I can't even qualify to buy UPS insurance(too

    young). I've never paid for insurance, never will. Long ways from Medicare or SS. In my opinion,

    let the Company dq him. You never know what can/will happen. He has absolutely nothing to lose.

    But/however, doesn't sound like he has the heart for hard work. I'm not sure what "non standard'

    route means. My dq route was put together with bits and pieces. I was not on a "training route".

    My steward was great and helpful noting all this when it came to the panel-yes, it went to the panel.

    Anyway, my 2nd try was on a designated t/r and was like cake. Sailed smoothly through.

    UPS is not for everyone. I quit recommending people for jobs. I wouldn't ever recommend my

    son in law(who needs a better job)-ever. Doesn't have it in him and wouldn't let him embarrass

    me.

    We are in the middle of a change of ops at our hub. A fellow driver has been with the Co. 9 years.

    He doesn't want to change hubs(15 miles). I asked him then what? "I'll quit". Wow. Ooook.

    The OP needs to move along(single, no kids). Sounds like the Co. feels the same. IMHO.
