heaviest route in the center?Maybe you just suck? Or your buiding is just poorly run like most.
I tried getting into UPS around 9 years ago, didn’t even get an interview, I was early 20s tho and it was the recession.
Applied online last October and picked a day/time within the hour. In-person interview was the following day and 2 days later I was at driver school.
Did my 30 inside and then got put on bulk stops all peak and once done with those I’d meet a driver to be a helper.
Qualified in May and now it’s a year since hire and I have 1,800 hours in this year and on track to make $40k first year as a cover.
Some buildings need driver more the others. We had 3 retirements, a 4th become an ORS at another location, and a 5th quit. 2+ out for injurys.
I’ve done 52-58 hrs per week 3/4 of this year. Thursday and Friday this week were both 13hrs not including break.
I rather hired out of the preload than a off the street one. For one they understand and appreciate more the opportunity to drive, the preload process and you dont have to baby them as much as a off the street hire. I know some off the street hires that had to work a Sat. preload and it was their first time seeing that side....deer in headlights..they stop being dumbasses to their loaders that day.
heaviest route in the center?
Ya there are some drivers that expect spotless load qualities but some of the preload positions don't give you any time to actually do that.
... stack out, miss packages so others down line pull, and/or stop the belt.
You’ve fallen for the UPS ‘work as directed’ trap when you should be more focused on a good load and preserving your integrity.
My load quality isn't terrible but there is no reward for a good load quality. If a good load quality saves the company 5-6 hours of driver time a week (across 4 trucks) than the loader should be compensated for that.
