Could any of you UPS veterans offer a new driver helper some wise advice?
Walk don't run
Listen to your driver
show up on time
Pack a lunch and pee before I pick you up. Always be on time. Listen to what the driver tells you, where to put it etc. Avoid contact with people. Leave a pkg where you cannot see it when you get back to the truck. Not in front of the door. Hustle, grab that handrail throw your butt in the seat, get strapped in. glove on or off, no time for pulling them off and putting them back on. When I decelerate, be ready to unstrap, git and go.
Best advice I can give is look around a bit and see that there are 2 threads on this page, with tips from drivers and helpers.
Don't bring a lunch. Bring something to drink. Don't even think about smoking or talking on the phone. Other than that the job is no pressure easy.
like my third day as a helper I pi$$ed myself on my way home. I was about to ask the driver for a break and was very new to the area no gas stations on my direct way home. Get a good laugh guys only my wife knows this happened so feel special.
we ll know now
stay off cell phone
Show up on time dressed and ready to work.
Work as directed.
There isn't much to the job. Take the package and get it to the correct house as fast and as safe as possible. Get back to the truck and buckle in as fast as possible.
thanks for the advice!
You're right. I should have looked first.
Grab your ankles, or as they say west of the Missouri River...assume the position...
