It's funny----i was thinking about transferring to Phoenix terminal.
Anyways, no, the pay starts at $17.40, then goes to $17.70 after you make seniority/make it into the union---like 45 working days. Then again, with the new contract, i'm not 100% sure what you're going to start at or finish with.....
If you're city p+d, then i'd say the work/life balance is ok----weekends completely off, although it seems like the work week is devoted to work and not much else? It may depend from terminal to terminal.
It is NOT impossible to get on with upsf off the street; How much experience you got and your driving record?
It's a union job. No jumping over the starting rate.Hey guys is the starting pay for upsf still only $17.70 to start? If so is there any chance they can start you at a different rate depending on experience? I would love to jump ship from food service but 17 an hour is a very low starting wage.
We are @ 27$ this Holliday season at small package feederHey guys is the starting pay for upsf still only $17.70 to start? If so is there any chance they can start you at a different rate depending on experience? I would love to jump ship from food service but 17 an hour is a very low starting wage.
I figured I'd ask, I'm at a union job as well and that doesn't matter. It depends on what you bring to the table on where they want to start you at.
Yeah I keep checking every day waiting for something to pop up, how's the chances of staying after the season is over would you say?Keep checking for jobs. They haven't posted seasonal tractor trailer jobs. They want 10 at my building. But none are posted on upsjobs.com
I'm trying to find something right about this post...Don't mess with small pack. They have boards with 1,000+ people. Theyve had waves and waves and waves of hires over the year.... Freight hasn't had hires like that yet. You don't want to join freight in the p&d division. You'll be getting horrible hours then you're forced to bring the truck you're driving back for the road driver has bidded on it... You'll legit get no hours. P&d drivers can't even bump the dock during lay off because the dock is the same union as road and p&d has no senoirty of them... Just like small pack has no senoirty of their dock..... If you want to make money join ups freight road. You'll be able to get stuck out in hotels, work the dock and work the weekends.
Ups small pack vs ups freight road.. which is quickest to make $100,000??? Ups freight hands down. Any questions lemme know
