do you gps every house ?
onetonk5 (1 month ago)
No, but I have my own route. And know it inside and out. But cut drivers (fill in drivers) really benefit from gps.

Lol, I look this up to see what it’s like and it ends up being my city. 😂

That’s pretty funny. Did you sign up as a helper this year?
Cincinnati Scents (2 months ago)
Always in uniform, so you don't miss any time with your kids. :)
JD Schrunk (2 months ago)
I work as a driver helper. I’ve worked with 6 different drivers. Most of them are cool but they all seem depressed. Almost all of them said they have no time for family. Drivers are cool. Management and HR are terrible!

Ups cares more about their workers , than FedEx
Ken Shaw (3 months ago)
The video left out the cursing of the preloader, the dumped load, the misloads, the dogs and the drivers cutting you off. Other than that, pretty accurate account.

They also forgot mention the last minute surprise pick ups.

UPS has the highest number of foot, ankle, leg and back injuries of any company in the USA.
Alex Yamach (3 months ago)
Not many Female drivers. Their bodies can't take the physical wear and tear and they can't handle the stress of being micro-managed.
Alex Yamach (3 months ago)
And thanks to the Teamsters Union, these drivers are paid well and have good benefits.
Alex Yamach (3 months ago)
Lots of fun taking off and putting on your seat belt over 100 times a day.
Alex Yamach (3 months ago)
And those guys are micro-managed to death. Every one of their movements is tracked. They are under time restrictions for every delivery and their route, And have their decisions 2nd guessed by supervisors all the time. They earn every dollar they make.

Any new truck our center has seen since I started in 2001 has been an auto.
I see cops not using blinkers and blowing stop signs daily as a delivery driver.

Big Daddy Leroy (4 months ago)
I just made 24 years of that video. 6 more to go God willing. It truly is tough to make that life work with out God in your life. the video showed about 15 or 20 stops, but that's just a small part of the day. imagine that over about 130 to 150 stops. keep it up bro.

@Big Daddy Leroy You're so right . He is 55
Big Daddy Leroy (4 months ago)
@toyoscio that can happen at any job, or any place. having Jesus as my Lord and Savior is what gives me a hope that conquers all evil
toyoscio (4 months ago)
@Big Daddy Leroy Good luck. A week ago a driver was shot in Cleveland because a guy was robbing him. He gave him $5, the guy wanted more, so the driver gave him another $87. He still was shot (with a rifle) and is in the hospital in serious condition. The guy who robbed him, admitted he had a drug habit and was arrested.
Big Daddy Leroy (4 months ago)
@Rambo Sandman I liked local sort better than preload but got more hours on pre load. we have drivers moving up here all the time. some have been part time for just a year or two. good luck to you

Do You Still Work At UPS???

Brett sorry man sounds like a different type of building than I’m in. Not sure about that
Ford (6 months ago)
onetonk5 that’s awesome. I’m working at the CACH hub just outside of Chicago. I’ve been a part timer for 2 years coming at the end of September. I hope to become a driver some day but my hub is feeders only and I’ve heard if you want to drive here you’ll need 25+ years of driving package cars. Do you think this is true?
onetonk5 (7 months ago)
Yes, this September will be 18 years.

I worked for UPS, as a counter person, in the deep south, for approximately six months. It was by far, the worst job I ever had! I was called every name in the book, including racist, if a customer's package wasn't ready and waiting. When I turned in my two week notice, I got fired. I am happy for those who make a good living for UPS, and I know some do, but I hate the way they run their company, and how I was treated. I pretty much got stuck on the counter with five minutes training, and abandoned. Then, when I couldn't figure out how to do something(like shipping a package overseas), nobody was available to show me. And nobody would come forward to defend me against the onslaught of angry customers. I left a job at Walmart, for a dollar more at UPS. I should have stayed at Walmart. At least you could get a manager to come deal with an unhappy customer. So all you Walmart haters, go get a UPS job, please! I have only worked a few side jobs since UPS, since I screwed my spine up, lifting heavy packages, while dealing with nightmare people, alone. (UPS also told me that back injuries don't come on gradually. It either happens all the sudden, or it didn't happen.) I do like that the guy reads his Bible every morning. I probably should read mine more. Because every time I hear about UPS, I get angry about the nightmare that I went thru. Is hating a company a sin?
Dennis Pluto (4 months ago)
itsnotthesamething I don't know if hating ups is not a sin but who cares.the way they treat people is the sin.my back is destoyed from 12 years unloading at ups its called repetitive motion injurys of course ups won't admit it.

Itd be nice to be a UPS driver but in a different state every day. Sometimes youll see mountains, or the desert, or sometimes in the fog in a forest

Do you have assigned trucks or do you just take a truck that’s ready to go?
onetonk5 (9 months ago)
Most people have assigned routes that have the same truck each day. There is full in “cut drivers” that run the routes of people on vacation, or sick and so forth

Left out the part where management writing you up for getting stuck in traffic and being told to finish two other guys route and get here early and don't clock in yet.
jtoledo325 (10 months ago)
He must of had a request load that day 🤦‍♂️
Elliott Avant (10 months ago)
Average number of stops for a driver like him (like say, here in Chicago)? How many are business, residential? Is there such a thing as an 8-9 hour day?

You left out the part where you don't even try to deliver the package and just smack a failed deliver notice on the door, then drive off.
W Clark (10 months ago)
@Zow Err I know the Purolator driver because he actually delivers stuff, so I've seen him. The fucker from UPS just dumped my stuff at a UPS store without even trying to deliver it. Two different packages, two days in a row. Didn't even bother to stick up a notice for the second one. Since I was home all day both days, I know there was no attempt.
Zow Err (11 months ago)
Hello no, I don’t want the same packages on my truck for three days. I’m getting that shit off one way or another, unless it’s a sig req. and you’re not home. Get to know your UPS driver and he will work with you. I have customers who are good to me so I’ll go the extra mile to make sure they get their stuff.

Damn buddy.....1st delivery and he broke the rules. NEVER cross in front of the package car, always cross from BEHIND or exit from the driver door....just sayin

His helper kept having to get out, get ahead of him then film him driving up... that's why it took him all day to deliver

I know the UPS life I worked as a trucker in a russain Wearhouse and boy it's a hard life. With just 14 trucks in our fleet but our Fridays were so busy our Wearhouse was stacked to the brick and if your package arrived in bad shape or even damaged it gets kicked and tossed around very bad to get things done fast
