Hello all! I am wondering what you think of something. How do those of you feel when you have been with UPS for a while now and the company hires someone off of "the street"? I understand the ratio of how brown hires, but how do you as employees actually feel about it? Is it pretty much the practice of UPS to hire temp drivers for the holiday seaon and then cut them loose after Dec.31st? What is the likelihood that a temp driver will stay on? Does that bother anyone else when someone with no experience with the company comes in and lands the primo position? I ended up not going in for my appointment as a driver helper. From what I've read here, it is a very, very rough job. I am a very petite lady who already had broken her spine (about 3 months ago) and I don't think I could handle the job. I would love to get into UPS, but I cannot compromise my health to do so. KUDOS to all of you who work so hard day in and day out. (I'm bitter about a family member who is doing temp driving work with UPS and I hope they DON'T get the job after Christmas. I think the people who have been with the company and have senority should get the position, not this person. I guess I'm just mean!) Thanks for reading. Stay warm everyone!
