3 years loading 1 truck. Why?

    I've been loading the same truck for over 3 years now and I've never been sent to another truck unless we were understaffed, which is rare - usually they bring in temps or unloaders. Seeing all the new hires and other loaders constantly being sent to other trucks has me worried that other supervisors don't want me on their PD. Or, maybe I'm the only one that can do this truck properly. Anyway, I'm thinking about trying to move up, but I'm worried that if the former is the case and I've been "blacklisted" from other trucks, maybe that would have an impact on trying to become, say, a driver or supervisor.

    What do you all think?

    I'd say that the PT sup wants to keep you around his area, or you'd be moved, but who knows.

    the driver must be happy with you if it is a hard truck to load. anyway seniority will determine when you can go driving.

    Funny, but seriously, what if they think I'm only capable of loading this one truck?

    You load ONE truck...and You're complaining? Even if it's a van (box truck)....most loaders are made to load at least 2 a day in my building.

    Sounds like he's talking about a trailer.

    Is it an easy trailer? Hard? Heavy? Extendo or TOFC rollers? I don't load anymore, but if I did, I'd kill to only have to worry about the flow in one trailer vs. 2 to 4 of them. Especially if that one is on an extendo.

    It probably won't impact your ability to become a supervisor, and definitely not a driver. My hub has tendency to promote people to supervisors in areas where they have absolutely no clue what to do. (Preloader to sort sup, unloader to heavy PD sup, loader to midnight boxline sup, etc..).

    How is it possible that you've been loading the same truck for 3 years when you haven't even worked here 3 years yet?

    I am living proof that you can be absolutely terrible in the hub and become a driver
