A Career Born from Seasonal Employment

Matt Myers is one example of a part-time employee who snagged a full-time position. He started as a seasonal driver, realizing the potential of a full-time career shortly thereafter. He was driven to show that UPS was the right place for him.  

Matt enjoyed being outside, meeting new people, and learning about his neighbors--all in a fast-paced environment. Quick "waves" and "hellos" during deliveries--a positive attitude and hard work--were enough to show hiring managers his eagerness to be brought on full time. There were transitions of loading and driving trucks seasonally, but he knew his time would come with perseverance and patience. Matt focused on the tasks in front of him each day, not looking too far ahead--two years later Matt's opportunity came.

His gratitude is shown through relationships with his customers and relationships with new drivers-- offering them tips and tricks about organizing trucks, customer support, and route efficiency. He says there's no way he could have learned the ins and outs of UPS operations on his own, so it's important to impart his knowledge to new drivers.

When it comes to advice for new drivers, Matt says to be aware of the pace you're keeping to ensure a successful day, all the while looking for kernels of knowledge from others who are part of the massive UPS operation. "At the end of a hard day--if it's something you want, it's that much easier."
