    Two years experience and a good driving record. However, a lot of mail contractors (in this area anyway) are crooks and operate junk equipment.

So please give me some information on UPS!
    UPS and UPS freight are two completely different animals....Freight brings in NOWHERE near the $$$$$ small packages do. I worked delivering packages, then a feeder driver. Made $100,000 a year. Today, small package delivery drivers CLASS C, make $28.20 an hour, FEEDER drivers CDL-A, make $28.70 an hour, plus 20 hours a week overtime. Add that up. Home EVERY day. NO weekends, paid holidays, free medical/dental/vision. I knew guys getting 8 weeks paid vacation a year!

    UPS Freight Drivers think that one day they'll get the same. And that's what UPSF management WANTS you to think. But I'll tell you, that will never happen. They are 2 different companies, and will forever remain this way. Like I said earlier, freight does NOT bring in anything close, money wise, as small packages. You will NEVER make what small packages make. Keep dreaming.......

    How long did it take for you to become a courier? Did you have to be a package handler first? I am using this site to research the trucking industry as I want to get in it. (In college, I worked for FedEx Express for a couple years as a package handler and got to on some routes with a driver during peak season.) At first, OTR seemed the best route, but now LTL looks like it is the way to go. It seems like LTL is the way to go if you are a newbie and young. I am 25 with no CDL/experience. Are you still a feeder driver or did you go back to the courier position? I am a little confused...from what I'm getting it sounds like you are saying don't bother becoming a feeder driver because the courier position pays better.

    This varies by location and your willingness to prove your worth. I know a guy who was a fueler for Sysco Foods, took a part time job at UPS as a handler, not even a month later they offered him a job as a truck driver. He did have a CDL and had graduated from trucking school, but a year or more before going to UPS.
