    Hello UPSers

    2)What is the expectations as far as hours each week. She said pay is 30/hr. Do they pay only for your drive time?

    Sleeper team is OTR. Well my paid hours only be my drive time. Or all time spent not in the bunk?

    This is the thread you should be posting this in:

    Ask a Feeder Driver, Feeder Driver FAQ

    The team is paid mileage and is split between both drivers. Technically you’re paid while in the bunk. Breakdowns and slow downs kick you to hourly pay.

    Sleepers are paid by the mile. Even starting out. There is a breakdown per mile based off your scale same as hourly. They may offer a higher rate to get you in the door then when seasonal is over you get bumped down to the first year of scale rate. Like stated above you will split the miles 50/50 with your co-driver. The routes vary, and being new you will probably have a new one each week. Varying from 1500 miles to 6000 miles (the highest miles I have personally seen on a dispatch).

    It's not an easy job for your personal life. You will be away from home for 4 days at a time. Just something to consider.

    6000 miles?? That would be NYC to LA and back with 400 miles to spare.

    I have never heard of a UPS employee being offered a higher rate of pay (not a bonus) to "get you in the door" only to bump it back down to the contractual rate after Peak is over.

    Truth and UPS management are 2 words that just don't go together. From what I can tell, HR seems to be the biggest offender. They will tell new employees whatever it takes to hit their MBC goals.

    That’s how they’re doing it at CACH now since they need so many teams and they weren’t getting enough applicants, 710 signed off on it. So they pay $30 instead of first year rate but I believe it’s for the foreseeable future, not just through peak.

    10-4. Just trying to find someone that works there as a Sleeper Feeder to get some info.

    After you weekly run. If you have DOT hours left, can you run local routes to max out

    There were a couple guys that took those sleeper jobs on here but I haven’t seen them post in a while. Hopefully they’ll see this post.

    I know when they first started the hiring craze in Chicago , a lot of the guys that hired in were running local as the senior guys were grabbing all the new sleeper runs. It may have stabilized by now.
