    I applied for the following cities for "Full-time package delivery drivers"

    Brooklyn, NY
    Bronx, NY
    San Jose, CA

    Anchorage, Alaska is hiring for "full time package delivery driver" also
    Now I was going to apply for Hudson, NY... it said full time also but when you apply and pick the schedule it says 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM - Seasonal ONLY.

    The ones I listed below did not say that

    Bronx & Brooklyn is still listed on UPS.com

    So what are the chances?? Should I call and ask? thanks in advance

    There is no chance they for a permanent driver position.

    They are all seasonal Position UPS doesn't hire people to be FT permanent drivers off the street. Although they hire 1 outside person for every 6 inside employees they promote to FT drivers that person is either a PT Sup or a seasonal driver that has been driving seasonal for a couple of years.

    In past UPS did hire FT drivers off the street you missed that boat by a good 15 years.

    Try western North Dakota. They cannot find enough people to fill the jobs. I heard most of the UPS drivers quit to work in the oil fields.

    I'm surprised Harrisburg isn't on your list too. Harrisburg East needs drivers BAD!!!! And you'd work there too. A LOT!!!

    No no. I'm a Harrisburg WEST driver. I left East a long time ago and will never go back. My next move is feeders if I move again.

    They've actually trying to TAKE some of our drivers. The bottom guys. But these guys don't want to go. Stupid in my eyes though. They complain because they don't get to work for West but when told they would be moved to East they piss and moan and call the union and fight it.

    Given a choice between East Shore and West(?) Shore, what do you think?

    Well, I've been in both centers. Started East, went to West for FT cover bid, transferred back to East for an actual bid. Got bumped off the route then proceeded to get abused on the next route. Continuous 11-12 hour days. So the first route that came up on the West, I signed it and transferred and never looked back. Now I'm off most days by 6.

    ​So you tell me.....where's the grass greener?

    Well... The UPS in San Jose, CA contacted me to complete my application

    and they said the position is full time driver not seasonal

    so I got lucky.... so far.

    A PT job in Michigan probably yields a higher cost of living than a FT job in San Jose. Might want to research apartment, food & utility pricing -- there's a reason oodles of workers make the 50-mile commute to stay in nearby Oakland...
