    UPS driver salary

    guys, i graduated from college with a 3.6 in may from a respected college and degree in criminal justice. this isnt really what i want to do though. in the meantime, my loans need to start being paid on by nov. 1st and i still have no job. since i dont know what i want to be doing, i think i want a job where i can get good money and benefits but that i can just start doing, and not have to be trained etc etc...

    so i was looking up UPS and it's hard to find a solid number, but my grandfather told me 36,000 to start, and i even read that the annual ups driver's salary is 55k, going up to 70k with overtime. not only that it has great health benefits which i also need as i have no health coverage right now.

    i honestly enjoy driving and love driving stickshift, so this sounds like a great job for the time being. i wouldnt mind popping in some cds and delivering packages at all. does anyone have an idea of what the starting base salary is for ups drivers? is 36k accurate? are there any other better paying jobs aside from driving the truck around in the brown uniform that ups also offers?

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure you have to start as a part time slave before you can drive.

    You have to stock for at least 4 years before you can be considered to be a driver.

    No true. It depends on where you are.

    It can be difficult to balance work with home and family. UPS understands this and makes resources available to help its employees balance conflicting needs.
    A sampling of UPS's work-life balance programs:
    Adoption Assistance Program
    Cultural Gift Matching Program
    Dependent Children Scholarship Program
    Education tuition assistance programs for employees and family members
    Educational Loans (ConSern)
    Employee Assistance Program

    That is from their website. For salary, it just says it is "competetive and the highest in the field."

    this is old but i found it on google and thought i'd bump it

    I work for UPS, you don't start out as a full time driver. If your at a huge hub you will move up quicker because the needs are there. Typically you can bid for a Saturday driving job (early a.m.'s) and then get promoted from there. They also have combo jobs where you deliver some packages to an airport, then spend the rest of the day washing the cars, sorting pgk's, etc....I'd rather do that then delivering packages all day I believe. Some people I know have sweet ass gigs. One guy just drives about 90 minutes to an airport, then drives back and by the time he gets back pretty much everyone is gone including his supervisors. All he has to do is wash the trucks and park em and ****.....he has no boss on his ass the whole time, Id LOVE that.

    and the freight drivers get paid really well.....the package cars is what I was talking about. Early A.M. saturday drivers here get paid $12 to start but have common raises. Depends on where u live.

    We don't get bonuses here but someone was telling me up in mass they were getting bonuses if they showed up all 5 days of the week.

    My dad is a Teamster boss here, and always says that UPS drivers make good money. He also says that it's a hard job, and he doesn't have any older drivers. Some of his truck drivers for various companies make six figures easy.

    My cousin and uncle work for UPS, this is how it works from their stories I've heard. First, you have to go through training which is around a 2 week or longer process, then you get assigined a part time route, filling in for other drivers and doing deliveries that are not on regular drivers routes. My cousin has been waiting for 2-3 months since he got his training and I'm not even sure if he was his own route yet. My uncle also hates his job and can't wait to retire, but you're not doing a career in this so I guess it's different.

    Also, since you don't get a full route right away, you don't get full pay as you'd imagine. If you're in a hurry to pay off those debts, I don't think this is the right job for you as it takes awhile to get the pay coming in.
    You want to know about relationships? I know all there is to know. Just ask my second wife Tina. Yeah, she was a stripper, and if Montel Williams wants to talk **** some more then he can go **** himself because those charges were dropped

    it probably depends on what condition your in. I load a plane....and its 100 degrees where I'm at, which means its about 120 degrees on the top part of the plane and about 150+ in the belly of the plane, lol.

    Im a gym rat and a conditioning freak so I still end up doing my cardio when I get home from work and i'm good. But if your not like that it could definetly be hard work. The trucks you see driving around the burbs have no air conditioning in them. The 18 wheelers probably do but not the package cars.

    I've seen some older drivers but it really depends on the individual i guess. I help the package car drivers unload some before i work on the plane and there was a younger guy who looked like he was about to pass out. Then theres some older people who had no problem it seemed.

    They'll work you hard I guess but if your in the union you can pretty much do what you want, lol. If you say your getting too hot you need a break you just go take one. They can't bitch about it

    I'll also unload trucks when theres extra volume but generally I'm out loading those big ass cans on the plane.

    Ya I worked at UPS back years ago and out of the 150 or so full time drivers I only ever heard of 1 being hired off the street to drive full time . Plus you have to drive 2 years probationary to get the full pay . Usually you load or sort packs and during peak season or vacation you might cover a route for weeks up to a few months and after you have accumulated a total of 2 years you get the top driver pay which was 22.00 ten years ago in North Carolina. And the raises were always .50 a year period . The one hired off the street to drive got top pay after 1 month which is the grace period all employees work through in which they can be fired for any reason . After that the union protects you .

    Yeah, right now I'm loading trailers and ****. They also want me to be a scanner so I'll have to remember the 1st three digits of zip codes for states. Thank god they're not too long.

My cousin has been waiting for 2-3 months since he got his training and I'm not even sure if he was his own route yet. My uncle also hates his job and can't wait to retire, but you're not doing a career in this so I guess it's different.

    Also, since you don't get a full route right away, you don't get full pay as you'd imagine. If you're in a hurry to pay off those debts, I don't think this is the right job for you as it takes awhile to get the pay coming in.
    well he won't find better benefits at any non-government job. It takes time to work up to good pay but it only takes 6 months to get your benefits. I don't have to pay a dime for my benefits and I have 100% health coverage, 100-80% dental coverage depending on the procedure, and then vision coverage as well. I don't have to pay a single dime for it.

    As far as what routes you get, or what combo job you get its all based on seniority. People who've been around the longest get first dibs

    Have a friend who got hired straight on as a Fed-Ex part time driver. UPS wise, you're going to have to spend a few years in the warehouse before getting to drive. In Oklahoma City it takes an average of 7-9 years before having a chance at driving.

    Truthfully, you would've been better off working for UPS right out of high school because even with a degree you're on a level playing field with everyone else because the company stresses promoting from within.

    Yep. That's exactly what I meant, I'm just don't know 100% of the details but I'm somewhat familiar with it. The new guys also have to drive the crappy trucks while the old members get the new ones.

    The first thing they said to me when I went to UPS was the money sucks when you start and don't bother working part-time because it's not worth it. They really don't care I guess.

    so i was looking up UPS and it's hard to find a solid number, but my grandfather told me 36,000 to start, and i even read that the annual ups driver's salary is 55k, going up to 70k with overtime. not only that it has great health benefits which i also need as i have no health coverage right now.

    i honestly enjoy driving and love driving stickshift, so this sounds like a great job for the time being. i wouldnt mind popping in some cds and delivering packages at all. does anyone have an idea of what the starting base salary is for ups drivers? is 36k accurate? are there any other better paying jobs aside from driving the truck around in the brown uniform that ups also offers?

    thanks
    i work ups as security and heres the numbers for canada;

    cube van starts at 12 and then after 3 yrs 17
    5 ton same
    one ton alot more=after 16 yrs one guy is making 33 and working 18 hours a day==

    a couple of truckers are so busy that they have a camper in the parking lot...Its crazy

    another trucker told me he is making 7k a week...3500 for expenses and 3500 pocket...


    Man i got to learn to drive stick and then take my class one


    the guys moving the trucks around the yard make 12 only and after a few yrs 20--but thats a good way to get started--
