If you are starting the job from the street as we say. Just coming in to drive for seasonal, HR usually ships you off to school right away. Well that's what happens around here. No matter where the driving school is, if you live far away UPS will give you a hotel (Very nice hotel) to stay at for a week. There's a lot of work that goes in it.
It's been a long time since I've took that tour. I believe that you take the tour when everyone's working twilight. I don't know it is for season drivers though. I think like I said HR just ships you to school.
It's harder when your just off the street learning our ways. My suggestion for all your newbies out there get into the just early. Work the hubs. It might be hard at first, there's a lot of work to but into it. Take it from experience. I've been at UPS for 7 years I love the place, more like a love hate relationship haha. But it all comes with its benefits. I think your best bet would be to work the hub for a 2 - 3 years then put your name on the driver list. They will call you when they are ready for you. Lot of paper work goes into it. lot of time. Then when your a driver for a year get your name on the feeder list. THAT'S WHERE THE MONEY IS!
