There are a couple of bids up in my building right now. I signed them both, not sure if I will get it as there are a few higher seniority employees in front of me, my date is (3/29/04) long wait in my building. My question is......it is stated in the bid that you must pass a UPS road test in a standard shift vehicle. Now I have driven a manual a few times in the past but not often, just curious how anybody with similar circumstances managed to prepare for the road test? I've heard from a few people in my building that in some cases you can come in on a Saturday and a sup may work with you and let you practice in the yard. Is this your best bet to become proficient? Any responses would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
