I link 2 of the diad belt clips together and wrap with hockey tape/ it brings the diad down lower and right were my hand is and i don't have to raise my shoulder or lift jacket/shirt plus the seatbelt isn't right on it. takes a good whack to set them together but its awesome having the board down lower.

That's a great idea.

NO toilet paper?! Dude I carry TWO rolls! Just make sure you have some DR bags handy for when you have a "leaker" if you know what I mean. LOL!
DuckTalesWooHoo1987 (30 days ago)
I actually carry some stuff for chaffing that also smells good. So when I have to take a dump back there I spread that on the floor when I get done. I figure that's the least I can do. LOL!

You carry too many shits in your backpack. It look that you don't have a route, you hanging down driving the Brown package car.

He’s a rookie....He forgot the most important item to have on hand. “Adult Signature Required” stickers to put on any packages that were loaded in the wrong spot that you don’t want to go back to deliver. You never know when they will jump in your truck when you finish for the day to check your send agains.

Mercorey Just go back and deliver those you loser. You don't get it.

What is he, a Saturday air driver? The truck isn’t even loaded with anything. My first route as a full time package car driver I went out with 90-105 stops per day with 45 pickups. I delivered 700 - 1000 pcs per day and picked up the same amount. My last route I was on before retiring, I had a residential route and went out and delivered 160 - 170 stops per day but I had no pick-ups. UPS pretty much wants their drivers to do 20 stops per hour on a residential route. Industrial and retail routes you do less stops but handle alot more packages and you also do less miles with those route.

Safety first. I could care less about their bs stops per hour nonsense.

How long is the hire process for ups period because I have my cdl class a and I want a freight job but there is no time frame on any job for the hiring process
onterious huitt (4 days ago)
Yea Ok I’m a feeder driver I even got my uniform yesterday but I have my cdl so that helped but I still don’t get there pay I’m starting at 18.75 an hour do to me coming in on the previous contract
Yea Ok (5 days ago)
onterious huitt That isn’t usual or common, I work for UPS and talk to many feeder drivers. They all have very high seniority and are older guys
onterious huitt (6 days ago)
Yea Ok there take feeders off the street here
Yea Ok (6 days ago)
Have to work as a part time package handler in the hub for many years before going into package, then after many years of package you can bid on feeder jobs based on seniority

How long does it take ) sorry about that Chris Edwards

Is it true that you have to work in the warehouse first to be a driver ?
AlliesDay98 (3 days ago)
do you like being a feeder driver?
Yea Ok (6 days ago)
Yes here in Cali 8-10 years as a part time loader/unloader
Chris Bishop (1 month ago)
I worked local sort 6 yr before I was able to go full time
Mercorey (1 month ago)
I started in the warehouse and worked local sort for a year before a full time package car driver position became available. You can get hired as a full time driver from the streets but it is very difficult. According to pre 1997 contract, It was 4 to 1 for hiring, meaning that every 5 full time drivers that they hire, 1 can come from the streets.
Truth Seeker 92 (2 months ago)
Not nowadays; it really depends on location. I went straight to feeders from being a package handler at the Memphis TN hub and only been with the company for a year.
Brian Johnson (3 months ago)
that wasnt boring at all
Nick T. (3 months ago)
For your keys you can get a key belt clip. Fast to clip the key ring into. I use 2, keys and flashlight, working in feeders.

I've been driving for 30 years and i gotta say, I've never seen a package car driver with that much time... you must have a rural route. What like 10 stops and 100 miles?
Dear Vrenezi (27 days ago)
HD Jake there’s no way you have have more hen 150 a day. Try delivering in New Jersey, Hoboken, weehawken, edgewater, union city, north Bergen. And West New York. You work these areas you’ll know what its like to actually bust your ass. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not easy anywhere you work. But delivering in this areas makes you question why you ever applied for the job. My areas in Hoboken. You have to walk off every single block. You load your hand truck and off you go. I only put 12 miles a day in my truck. Look these areas on the map. I have pictures of my load during peak that will make your head spin. Truck blown out plus over 100 packages that couldn’t fit in.

Key Fob? for the truck?
KA LUPO (4 months ago)
Attitude? You have yet to see my Attitude. And maybe its time for FEDEX to catch up to the times. The FOB will start the unit, Open the Bulk Head door , And the Overhead Door.
RTM Dustin (4 months ago)
KA LUPO maybe a little less attitude? And I was just curious because we don’t have anything like that for FedEx.
KA LUPO (4 months ago)
Package Cars. Starts the Unit, Opens the Bulk Head Door and Overhead Rear Door. So whats your question???
Larry Martin (5 months ago)
i like the holster because it has the slot for your info notices so you don't have to waste time walking back to your truck when someone isn't in. every second counts...
