Denis Berduo (15 days ago)
Is it worth being a ups driver right now im 18 yrs old
onetonk5 (15 days ago)
Denis Berduo - depends do you like physical, fast paced work that’s outside. Do you like long hours? Do you mind mico-management? If you want to work at UPS, the younger you start the better in my opinion.

I would have done this job, but my eyesight is so poor now, I'm borderline legally blind! Couldn't stand the possibility of running over somebody or smashing into another's car and face the severe reprecutions and feelings of guilt. My friend's brother who's two years older than me has worked for UPS for 20 years. It's a great career.

Enjoyed this video bro. I'm old school....as in...graduated high school in 1982. So I wish I had a name to attach my TYVM to because I would like to give credit to someone that has a real name, and not some YT avatar tag. . . know what I mean? . . . name's Mike btw. . . . . Anyway, I arrived to what I have figured out as the crossroads of my life. And this crossroads brought me to applying for a position for what I USED to do, in another lifetime, 16 years ago, as a delivery driver. And the time I'm referring to is the "now", the now time in my life that has brought me to UPS as a delivery driver. I've had other jobs since then, many in fact. Don't know if you've ever heard of the phrase "what goes around, comes around". . . well. . . life has come full circle for me. I'll save the explanation about what this actually means to me for another time. But for now, lemme tell you about what I think of your video; I love it ! ! ! :) I only had to see it once to figure out what and why I loved it so much. Why? Because you hit the bulls-eye for the ingredients to the perfect story. Which is the 5 "W"'s; "W" ho you are; a regular guy, (someone 99% of us working stiffs can relate to) "W" hat (what you do, and how you do a REAL days work "W" here (refers to the area in your life, in your world, when you have to do what you do) "W" hen (the timeline in ones life that calls you to do what you need to do, in order to get where you want/need to go) "W" hy (to show what it's REALLY like to REALLY know what it feels like to do a REAL days work) I'm looking at the date when you made this video bro, and I realize that you made this about 5 years ago. Which means you will most likely not even see my reply to your YT post. But I don't care. I don't care because I'm willing to take a chance that JUST IN CASE you DO see this, it'll make it all worth it for you. Here's what I got from this short 4m17s clip; - you're a regular guy - you're just 99% of us regular guys just trying to make a buck in a tough, modern day world - you start your day like probably 99% of North Americans do - you LOOK just like 99% of North Americans do when they wake up first thing in the morning - you DO exactly what 99% of regular North Americans do when they wake up in the morning (why am I using the term "North Americans"? because I'm a Canadian, up north of you) - your expression says exACTLY what 99% of us North Americans think about when the alarm wakes us up, and what we are thinking about the second our feet touch the cold hard floor - you show us what 99% of North Americans do for a living, each and every DAY - your music score couldn't have been a better choice bro. . don't know what that track is called, but it's PERFECT ! ! Because just with hearing the musical notes being played, seeing you in the camera frame, I'm able to see, hear, feel, sense, understand, ALLLL the 5 "W"'s of what brought you to this moment man - when I said earlier just from looking at you in camera, I can tell exactly what's going through your mind. it's not fake, it's not exaggerated. . . it's REAL. It's as real as the expression on your face, as real as the tired look in your eyes, it's as real as the age displayed on your face, and you don't even have to explain it to anyone. It's as clear as when you see a look of anger or happiness on someones face. you see it, you KNOW IT ! ! ! ! - and within a tight time-frame of a mere 4m17s you were able to tell us, well, at least ME anyway, you were able to tell us that ALLLL of this took place in one. . . long. . . 8-10 hour . . . work day !!! - and then if that's not enough, you steer us smoothly, and effortlessly toward the final "W". . . the WHY. By showing us the quintessential example of why most of us do ANYTHING. . . for the children. How do you do that? you show a short clip of you coming home, coming through the door, your daughter greeting you. . and not JUST greeting you. . . showing us the "WHY" by giving you that million dollar smile to remind you, and to NOT forget WHY you do what you do. And you reciprocate by giving your daughter a big bear hug and a smile when you both lock eyes on each other. And that's not all man. You brought this story the full circle about why you, WE all do what we do. And each of us have our own reasons for doing what we do. Hope you see this, hope your not board, hope you like it ! :)

I'm a retired single UPS driver. Most of my coworkers we're divorced or Unhappily Married. Working long hours till 9pm is asking for a divorce. I had girlfriends that couldn't wait till 9pm so they cheated on me. They couldn't understand why I was getting off so late.

James Woods (2 months ago)
I used to work for the "A" Holes ... Ran 125 to 140 Stops A Day , and was told that wasn't GOOD ENOUGH ... !! I was young then . Supervisor got in the P 500 package car with me one day , had a clipboard and a stopwatch in his hand . Said I had to run so many stops in a hour . I SAID , I guess the next thing out of your mouth is about SAFETY ..? I Told him to put his seat belt on , and close the door ...!! And we went through residential area 's 35 - 40 mph .. to try to make his delivery times of 1 hour .That Company IS RIDICULOUS ... !!!!

There are many paths to finding god. This is a fantastic video and you show yourself performing the job exactly as it should be done. Maybe some driver release could have been more out of sight...but good 3pts. Good check on mirrors. Good glace over left shoulder. Good optimum carry. Proper carry aid use and methods. Wish they were all like you. You seem to have pride in your work and like your job. I am happy for you. Thanks for sharing. Hope you got no grief from your 1st amendment creativity.

Hello great video! 👍 my husband works for ups driving! Any Tips on how to deliver more packages in less time? He says he has trouble finding the package in Truck! Thank you🙏
onetonk5 (2 months ago)
Odalys Muñoz - thank you. If you can’t find the pkg within a min and you will be in the area during pickups leave and do it later. Check on the shelf below if 7900 look at the 8900. Just be safe and honest and you will have a long career ahead.

How do drivers know where to go? Is everything GPS or do you just know your routes to the T
onetonk5 (3 months ago)
As of about a month ago the diad’s have a making system that shows the path. But if you have done a route for a week you can get to 99% of your stops with no assistance.
Jalen Cribbs (3 months ago)
What’s the hours you work if I may ask? What time you usually get home?

EvryTime (11 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 (11 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 (1 year 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 (1 year ago)
No, $36 an hour for drivers after 4 years of seniority. Remember 85% of those who attempt this job fail. Good luck....
onetonk5 (1 year 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.

In order to be a UPS driver, do I have to know how to drive stick shift truck?
Zow Err (8 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 (1 year ago)
kushan jay - in my city you do.

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 (1 year 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 (1 year ago)
onetonk5 Thank you 4 the answer,where can I get these clip?
onetonk5 (1 year ago)
Ferdinand Baier - its a clip that slides on your belt. Some guys use the pouch, but I like the clip.

Ena Garcia (1 year 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 (1 year 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.
