How come they didn’t show all the harassment by management and them telling you how much you suck at your job I didn’t see any of that
HavicNJ The Conservative (13 days ago)
onetonk5 Yeah I can’t say the same thing
onetonk5 (16 days ago)
HavicNJ The Conservative - there is a lot that is not shown in this video. I try to be s pretty positive person though. I have kept an overall good relationship with my supervisors in my career. For the most part lol.

Nice job. You shouldnt walk in front of truck though!

Nicholas Bloxxer thanks man

Looks way better than USPS. The trucks at least look more comfortable. Do they have air conditioning?

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 (5 months 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 (5 months 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 (6 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

Good video
MacraGE R (7 months ago)
Hey bro is it true tha pay is at $30 an hour??
Will Powers (6 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 (7 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.

kushan jay (8 months ago)
In order to be a UPS driver, do I have to know how to drive stick shift truck?
Zow Err (2 months ago)
Yes. I just finished driver training here in Redmond, Washington USA and all three times they took me out in a package car for my daily 45 min drive it was in a 5-speed manual transmission. When you take the road test you’ll have to be able to drive stick while being quizzed on stuff learned in class. So you must be really good at driving stick because it has to come as second nature as you’re being asked questions while driving AND navigating your way around the designated route. It’s not extremely difficult but again it’s NOT easy.
onetonk5 (8 months ago)
kushan jay - in my city you do.
Killjoy (8 months ago)
I find it funny that you forgot your diad a couple of times. But great vid either way

Buildingroots (8 months ago)
How many hours do they work per day?12?
onetonk5 (8 months ago)
Buildingroots - in our center I would say 9.5 is maybe the average.
Ferdinand Baier (8 months ago)
Hi,I am an UPSer in Germany. Nice Video,well done. But What Kind of Diad Holder u use ???
Ferdinand Baier (8 months ago)
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 Yes but i dont care,i have no Secrets i do my Job
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (8 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 (8 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 (8 months ago)
onetonk5 Thank you 4 the answer,where can I get these clip?
onetonk5 (8 months ago)
Ferdinand Baier - its a clip that slides on your belt. Some guys use the pouch, but I like the clip.

Is a class C license enough to drive the vehicle you're driving in the video?
onetonk5 (9 months ago)
Yes
Anthony Torti (9 months ago)
Spot-on! Though punch out times average 20:30 now, still spot-on.
Ena Garcia (9 months ago)
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 (9 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.
jdoggestyl (9 months ago)
I thought it was gonna be funny since Lyshitski was the driver!
richard aguirre (9 months ago)
Hahahah hey work is work non matter how u see it. Unless u are doing what u love to do then its not work. A driver at ups i believe is hard work that pays off and can be considered pretty awesome.
melqui rivera (9 months ago)
This is my dream job the fact I have to start as a package handler and get abused by management that's a bitch and I have to wait a year before I can even consider moving up hagggg!!!!!!!! By the time I get to be a delivery driver I will have a fucked up back

Nice video, I like how you start your morning 🙏
drepop803 (11 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 (11 months ago)
past 3:33 is your most important job of the day ;)
Lee Sanction (11 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 (11 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 (11 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 (11 months ago)
Wish I only had 10 stops a day.....
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (8 months ago)
You'd have to go to Fed Ex for that and they'd probably still consider that heavy. LOL!

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.
Will Powers (6 months ago)
I'm so happy I'm a satellite driver because loading your own truck each day is priceless !
steve b (7 months ago)
Jordan E Because they were SOLD OUT by the existing DRIVERS... since 1981.

gerardo aguirre (1 year ago)
What do you need to work as a ups driver ?
Dick Jauron (1 year ago)
it used to be high school diploma but with these new contracts it might not even be required anymore
onetonk5 (1 year 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 (1 year ago)
how about education ? thanks for the reply.
onetonk5 (1 year ago)
gerardo aguirre - a clean driving record and a drivers license.

Mark mark (1 year ago)
are you at able to use a sat nav GPS when on the road?
John Grepo (11 months ago)
Mark mark , I'd use it because you could become a cover drive-in getting a different route every day
onetonk5 (1 year ago)
Mark mark, some people use there phones. After a couple days on a route, that is not really even necessary.

Paulo STi (1 month ago)
Dear Vrenezi 300 stops in a tiny sector.
Will Powers (6 months ago)
I sure he took an 8 hour so he could produce this video.
Dear Vrenezi (7 months ago)
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.

Randy Sergent (1 year ago)
KTG_ Lyfer yes it is please don't misinform these civillians. I will refresh you on the methods if you need it. 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.
Jay Dub (1 year ago)
+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.
Sange Sherpa (1 year ago)
KTG_ Lyfer is it so hard to push that little button? Isn't it part of the job?
Jay Dub (1 year ago)
Sange Sherpa that's just an extra step we'd have to do..no thanks.
Matt B (1 year ago)
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.
steve b (1 year ago)
Looks like you had NINE PACKAGES in the whole truck. Must be brutal.

I'm from oregon, seasonal driver helper. Is your bro-in-law a filmmaker on the side? Or are you? This was put together well and the shots are little more creative than the average guy who wants to show their work day.

what type of truck is your UPS truck looks cool
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!

Ed D Well, seeing how it was 10.50 in 1979 for part timers it should now be AT LEAST $30/hour.
