I came across this video tonight , it was filmed right here in Keizer Oregon !! This guy has delivered packages to my house several times, he is a professional and absolutely the nicest guy !
EvryTime (1 month ago)
I had to come check out this video. It is January 12 and Peak, has not really stopped where I am, still going strong with the 10+ hour days. I am not complaining though, money is good. But I wanted to say that my current cd in my car has this song on it by Gramatik. I love it. It keeps me going. Maybe my 5th time watching this video lol
onetonk5 (1 month ago)
EvryTime - yeah I hear ya'. I'm getting done with the hours. We are all still in the tens. I shoot for 9.5 the rest of the year. This peak I got 60 5 weeks in a row. Great song😉 keep safe out there

This job is for highly motivated hard charging go getters only ! No wimps or save space pansies need apply. I've been a driver for 27 years and covered all the toughest routes back in the day. I drive a P500 on a rural satellite route now, no more P1200's or P1000's with 500 chunks and a 50 stop metro !
Ron Hutchcraft (2 months ago)
This is the most unrealistic video I've ever seen. The boxes were all small and manageable, the hours are 9-5 when in fact they are from 7am until God knows When. Traffic co operated with you, no problems at any business you delivered to. It just doesn't work Out like that. Not to mention the Holidays. Don't Even get me started on that. But the money is good

Hey bro is it true tha pay is at $30 an hour??
Will Powers (2 months ago)
No, $36 an hour for drivers after 4 years of seniority. Remember 85% of those who attempt this job fail. Good luck....
onetonk5 (3 months ago)
I don't talk about pay. But we get paid well in my opinion. Another perk is the benefits I haven't come across better yet.

Hi,I am an UPSer in Germany. Nice Video,well done. But What Kind of Diad Holder u use ???
Ferdinand Baier (4 months ago)
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 Yes but i dont care,i have no Secrets i do my Job
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (4 months ago)
I always use the pouch. I never use the tray in the package car. Do you guys have the idiotic ORION bullcrap and telematics watching your every move too?
onetonk5 (4 months ago)
Ferdinand Baier - they give them to us at work. I found some on e-bay search " Diad IV Belt Clip UPS BC5000 "
Ferdinand Baier (4 months ago)
onetonk5 Thank you 4 the answer,where can I get these clip?
onetonk5 (4 months ago)
Ferdinand Baier - its a clip that slides on your belt. Some guys use the pouch, but I like the clip.

How does he know what stops to get out at without a gps directing him ? Because I don't see a clipboard or anything to help him ?
onetonk5 (5 months ago)
Ena Garcia - the diad we carry has all of our stops in it. When you first learn a route you look at a map book or use your phone. After 2-3 days you have most of it down.

drepop803 (7 months ago)
they should show day in the life of a ups driver during peak season(last 2 weeks on nov, all off dec.). the truck Is so filled up you cant even open up the doors. cant find most of the packages to be delivered. if you have 3 packages coming to your home, you're lucky if I find two of them.
Burger Jason (7 months ago)
past 3:33 is your most important job of the day ;)
Lee Sanction (7 months ago)
Do you guys have turn by turns or navigation on your scanner to help you get to your next stop? Or do you have to know your route by heart?
Silver Angel (7 months ago)
which day is busiest? how many stops average a day? 100-120 stops? how many hours you work a day? 9-10 hrs? I want to come over to UPS from FedEx ground :)
Silver Angel (7 months ago)
is it true UPS don't make left turn? I wonder how is this possible? I make plenty of left turns hahais it also true that it takes anywhere between 4 to 10 years to become a driver for UPS? did you become a driver at first or you work the dock for several years? The thing is that my local UPS is hiring delivery driver full time...but from what I read in the forum...these guys are saying you can't be a driver right away....you have to work at the dock for years first in order to become a driver...so I am confused...can you clarify this for me?do you remember your first day of driving? How did they teach you the method of doing your run? did you have to mark your stops on the map that you have for that day? and how do you do your delivery now? you know all the streets in your head and have no need for maps anymore? did you use maps in the beginning? how many zip code do you cover? how many times have UPS changed your route since the beginning? I did one zip code for like a year...then changed to another run that has 2 zip code...and that's it...I just wonder do UPS make their drivers do different run that's all.You still wake up 6:30 every morning for work? the local UPS driver here come to the hub at 9AM.are all your stops organized for you by the loader or you still have to reorganize yourself? I spent anywhere between 30-60 minutes everyday looking through the whole truck before heading out for my run.
TRILLIN FLOSSIN (7 months ago)
Wish I only had 10 stops a day.....
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (4 months ago)

Stop Drop and Go! Ow and good luck finding the right package 😂 cause the loaders don't give a 🖕🏻to load them properly by the numbers. I mean they really don't give a 💩 cause they get a 💩 pay so why care. Not to mention UPS has them loading 3-4 trucks at a time.

I'm so happy I'm a satellite driver because loading your own truck each day is priceless !

What do you need to work as a ups driver ?
Dick Jauron (9 months ago)
it used to be high school diploma but with these new contracts it might not even be required anymore
onetonk5 (9 months ago)
gerardo aguirre - no education required. They train you. It is a matter of patience. You must start in the warehouse and wait till your turn comes up. 3-6 years in most cases depends on the city.
gerardo aguirre (9 months ago)
how about education ? thanks for the reply.
onetonk5 (9 months ago)
gerardo aguirre - a clean driving record and a drivers license.

are you at able to use a sat nav GPS when on the road?
John Grepo (7 months ago)
Mark mark , I'd use it because you could become a cover drive-in getting a different route every day
onetonk5 (11 months ago)
Mark mark, some people use there phones. After a couple days on a route, that is not really even necessary.

laserfinest 80 stops it’s nothing man. 80 stops is a ups drivers dream route. You typically get anywhere from 150-300 stops a day. More during peek season.

I'm not helping you bring it into the house and if there is no signature required you can expect my wheels to be turning before you open the front door. the only exception to that is if you're an attractive woman.

+Sange Sherpa when you have to do it 250 times a day yeah it's hard. And no it isn't part of the job.

How do you know where to go? Do you have GPS?
onetonk5 (1 year ago)
Matt B - most people use a Map book. Most times a supervisor will go with you the first time on a new route, if u want. You may use your phone occasionally. After you do a route a couple times you can get around pretty good.

onetonk5 (1 year ago)
M. R. Media - thanks for the kind words. I actually thought of the shots and filmed most of it with a lil help. I would of done a better job had I not been so busy and working at the same time. Good luck with the rest of your season!

craig bryan how many hours per day and how many days a week you guys work?
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (4 months ago)
No. When you start out you're a "cover driver" which means that you just go on whatever route they have for you to go on. The drivers that have their own routes are called "bid drivers" which means that they sign a sheet and the person with the highest seniority gets the route. At my hub it takes about 12 or 13 years to even start cover driving and to get a bid route will probably take you at least another 6 or 7 and generally the bids that do come up are in really crappy parts of town like the ghetto or something and no one even wants to take them. One of my buddies is a bid driver and told me not too long ago he thinks cover driving is literally the hardest job at UPS. I would agree. It's insanely stressful not knowing what route you're gonna be thrown on in the blind at the last minute but if you can tough it out you're gonna be making some insane money. Just know that it's not for the faint of heart.

Bilo Jaah (1 year ago)
Im watching this video to compare it with my delivery work here in the Netherlands, its not that different after all! only we drive Mercedes Sprinters/ VW Crafters their way easier in the narrow streets that we got here :) we have an average of 80-130 adresses each day over a 200-300km route i love it!
Bilo Jaah (1 year ago)
These are kilometers ofcourse, in miles it'll be something like 200, but the difference is that i have around 1 city that i drive the lot in, and i have around 6-7 more little town that are on my route, including mostly farms! i have pickups too but i can either choose to do them directly in the morning or at the end of my route, but i have to make sure i can make it ofcourse cuz most businesses close around 5-6hr. i count the miles that are from my home to the depot cuz i have my Sprinter van with me all week long. nice to hear back from you man! :)
onetonk5 (1 year ago)
Bilo Jaah -130 stops seems like a lot for that many miles. Do you do pickups? Most in town routes drive closer to 50 miles in my center, and the extended routes 180miles. Really neat to hear from you. Thanks for watching 😬

My buddy got smoked on a route the other day and texted his on road sup and said "I've got 14 internationals and if I take a lunch there's no way they're making it back to the building on time". The sup said "Please don't take a lunch..." Another driver the other day told me that lunches can be used as weapons when they start pouring it on us.
LS1 Corvette Fan (3 months ago)
Notinbutfights It's fucking nuts in the building I'm in I had 191 stops today I punched in at 8:45 am clocked out at 9:50 pm about to get to bed to do it all over again. I hear you about pre loading being hard I can't load for shit myself.
