    I got hired about a month ago. What are the real chances of me becoming a driver by peak season. I was told here at my hub that the driver list will start in October. Many drivers had told me that it took them between 3 to 6 months to go from package handler to driver.
    Thoughts?

    You could become a supervisor by peak. That's a cushy job that time of year. :-)

    Try 3 to 12 years... there's a recession coming, you know. Plus, Amazon will have us out of business sometime next year.

    You may be a seasonal driver but I doubt you'll be a FT driver.

    You will know when you know. You know exactly as much as any of us know.

    You’ll be a seasonal driver. Meaning you’ll run bulk out of a Budget truck through the holidays. Then shortly after New Years you’ll get put on waivers and preload will snatch you up.
