The UPS socks suck btw they give you blisters. Always double sock in the summer. They are too thin.
vq35dNYC (3 days ago)
I bet the next they he had 400 pieces with NDA and commercial savers.

Let's bash the competition just for good measure...FEDEX drivers are dangerous, from the semi drivers all the way down to the local delivery vans
Zach Wachs (8 days ago)
I'm FedEx ground right now but I'm definitely going for UPS in about 2 years. Even if it takes me a couple peak seasons I'll keep trying.
Donald baker (10 days ago)
Haha bs, maybe a managers truck during their 29 days "to be a driver"

Texas Patriot (16 days ago)
I wish my truck looked like that.... What is that like 40 stops???? if that.....
john wourden (17 days ago)
I’m 20 how exactly does one usually become a driver. Do you have to work yourself up within the company?
john wourden (6 days ago)
Bobby B thanks man really appreciate it!
Bobby B (7 days ago)
Seniority based gotta work your way up the ladder took me only 3 years to go full time a lot of centers it takes longer then that.

If my truck looked as good as his cargo. I'd be done in 2 hours. From the bay area here.
marcboss6 (1 month ago)
Looks like they took about 100 stops off him

Jason T true story
Jason T (1 month ago)
That's not enough, 100 stops is not enough for a cut car. What you meant to say was they took 120 stops from him and dumped it on a poor driver that drew the short straw that day.
Eric R Ordaz (1 month ago)
That's soooo rigged.

UPS IS A RUDE HORRIBLE UN PROFFESSIONAL COMPANY WITH HORRIBLE UN PROFFESSIONAL COMPANY WITH UN PROFFESSIONAL DRIVERS
Helbert doowop (1 month ago)
Why so many people called this is fake news my truck never looks like that
Focal Point Images (1 month ago)
Nobody gets a gravy load like that, it’s all for show. The shit should be stack to the ceiling, and boxes packed right to the bulk head door. That is reality at UPS, not this for show video.
An Equal (2 months ago)
I am a loader, and I take pride in my loading, but this truck is way too neat to be authentic. Lmao
Jason T (1 month ago)
Now see, that is the most truthful statement from a loader I've ever seen. Anyone who has loaded UPS trucks can attest to that.
MrVaughn32 (2 months ago)
FAKE NEWS!!
MrVaughn32 (2 months ago)
11 seconds in you know this is a promotional video!! First of all no cab of a truck is that clean in the fleet!! The doors open, and what’s this I see? Lip loaded packages with labels out and the shiny thing called a floor??? Haha what a joke. Now show Orion and how unsafe it is, left hand turns, crossing roads of stops you passed earlier to now cross busy streets with full hand carts
becca m cates (10 days ago)
and a fan, who allows that
Andrew Navarro (2 months ago)
Can anyone drop some knowledge on me on what the job is like from clock in to clock out for uos small package what's required to become a driver
Jason T (1 month ago)
From a 5 year UPS driver to you, I'm going to be honest and straight. It's a hard and intense job. Package car don't ever look like the one in the video. It's packed front to back and all the way up top. I average about 250 to 270 stops with about 400 to 420 pieces a day. There are time commitments to make such as NDA and Savers. It's always a race against time. On the positive side, money is good if you make it past your probationary period without crashing anything. 4 years seems like a long time but you'll be there in no time. Currently, salary at the 4 year mark is roughly $36 /hr before this new contract. Do the math, think about your expectancy versus reality. Hope that helps. As I said, it's about as honest as I can put it without taking sides.

The man speaks, "You know the area you know the people." Exactly. Why was 2 billion wasted on that ORION garbage then?!
Jason T (1 month ago)
I agree, wasted money on that Orion bullshit. I can run my cut route better than Orion any day. Stupid shit makes you dog from shelf 8 in the beginning of the day, LMAO... if only I can see shelf 8 from the front of car.

Cheeecko (2 months ago)
Lol Handel with care, 😂😂😂😂 ups trained me to slam it as hard as possible on the belt till you hear the perfect climb, then toss it over to sorting
ThoughtSpark (3 months ago)
That package car looks far too neat, preload must really care or the driver comes in an hour early the day of filming to sort load and make it look camera ready. lol
Dashoost (3 months ago)
ThoughtSpark I got one even better. They left the car in building after driver start and the part time supervisor went in and resorted and organized a perfect load for the news guy. They probably used a safety co chair who was scheduled to "stay in" to do the route which was just a junk route create with some easy cherry picked work off the other drivers in the area who ended up getting another 25 stops off area just to make up the time.
Tom K (3 months ago)
Whoever is loading that Package Car, I want them as my loader
Dashoost (3 months ago)
Tom K it's easy to load a car with 50 stops in it. They probably left that car in the building and had a supervisor go in and "fix" the load after the drivers left
Taylor Mick (3 months ago)
Probably the coolest thing I've ever gotten from a ups driver is a traffic light
MJ (3 months ago)
Haha i just finished folding my UPS uniforms and UPS socks. The UPS socks you don't get for free, or at least in Canada. 28 bux for a pack of 6 and i still only wear my ankle cut black socks. The ones the guy got in this video are the long ones, which no way in hell would i ever wear those with shorts LoL
GLIFELA 11 (3 months ago)
wtf he has like 20 stops in there lmao 3 hour request?
Dashoost (3 months ago)
GLIFELA 11 safety co chair who was scheduled to "stay in" that day. They delete his time card afterwards and code him to safety

Alan Lee (2 months ago)
emconite gamez it's all good man. It's the same on the delivery side only difference is drivers are somehow overpaid to be glorifies cardboard pushers. A damage here and there is expected when you're moving such ridiculous volume. I'm the quickest driver in my division and I'm not gonna lie and say I never had a box of detergent spill in my truck because I was a little too rough with it. I'm more careful with boxes than you would expect but it happens. This is not easy work.
emconite gamez (2 months ago)
well as a loader we do our best but when getting 15k volume to our belts with 400-500 pph expected of us kind of hard no to throw things once in a while especially misorts
Alan Lee (2 months ago)
Bobby Lang heh well I'll do my best but I know that before it got on the truck, it was thrown around a couple times by loaders and unloaded that make a little over minimum wage.

Right? The ones I load are fucked by the end of the shift. You have to climb over boxes to get to from one end to another.

Hei Hei (6 months ago)
Look at the back of the truck. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. If you all only knew what your boxes really looked like all jammed in there.
thegamerfrominside (6 months ago)
Hei Hei god they would scream.Expecially during peak if you need to stop and open up the back to reorganize. i worked two peaks as a driver helper with my dad and i hate businesses so much. I wonder how hellish it would be delivering at the malls with people everywhere. Never double shifting as a driver helper again. I get in the hub and unload, get in the truck with my dad, and then when we got back i would walk to my section and sleep in those giant empty boxes. I practically lived there.

You to get it insured and declare it high value. Otherwise people could just go around saying they lost the $2000 laptop to get free money.

+Dang ole 01 Man it's very hard work especially in the summer! Since you're a noob go early set up your truck, because the loaders suck, Map out your are, ask for advice how to run the route from drivers that know the route, supervisors are no help
