    I have a question concerning seasonal drivers. Is there a better chance (or a quicker chance) of going full-time package driver if I drive seasonally or if I become a package handler and wait.

    Do seasonal drivers get benefits?

    Seasonal drivers only get bennies if you qualify under the local unions Health and Welfare guidlines.

    You may not recive bennies until you've completed thier requirement along with initiation and dues reqirements.

    Check with you local first to get the straight scoop.

    UPS will hire you based on the contract and availablity of drivers both trained and untrained.
    It a crap shoot at seasonal, but many have made it that way.

    I did.

    Good Luck T251
