    all they could do is hold the next available full time position for me to start my 9th! progression. i freakin ran scratch twice every progression then they would send me out with a garbage truck or on a route in the blind. cant stand the games this company plays with its employees livelyhood!:biting:

    They played this game with the part timers back when they made virtually the same rate as the drivers. When the $8.00 / hr starting rate came into effect for all new hired part timers, all the higher rate people got "red circled". Suddenly if almost by magic, all the "red circled" guys were going driving and making seniority! Imagine that!
