    Third month of UPS so far, just joined the union. Doing preload in the sort aisle as well as loading trucks on Saturdays. I recently started doing driver helper and I like it. Haven't learned the DIAD yet but its looking promising. The extra hours are really helping me out (when they remember to punch in my hours lol) and I wanna know any advice you guys have to really be good at this.

    Do as your driver tells you unless it is unsafe.

    I hope you are getting driver rate since it is not peak season.

    My helper doesn't even get inside the truck. He runs beside the truck as I throw packages at him to deliver.
