    Was curious what your thoughts were on the best way to work from a part-time position into a driver position?

    After a bit of reading on the board, I've heard of several part-time positions to start with, such as: pre-load, driver helpers, "air ramp" pre-load, sort, etc. Is one PT position any better than another if you're interested in ultimately working your way to a driving position?

    Any ideas on what would be the best way to accomplish this or what to expect?

    Your thoughts and help are genuinely appreciated,

    Just make your intentions known, Kim. Look for job postings and sign them!

    How can that be a first post with no replies, but yours, from 4 years ago?

    Some of these guys should feel lucky, I had to work part time for 10 years before i got a driving job, but it also helped me when i went driving I already knew the routes
