    I'm a full time seniority package driver for 2 years now. 2 more years until top rate. Thinking about going into part time air driving if something opens up. My question is will I have to go through the 2 year air driver pay progression if I go this route?

    Not about being a man or growing up. My wife does really well and I don't need to work 55 hours a week.
    Where does it say I can't go back to part time air driving?

    Get on the 9.5 list and use all your 8hr requests. Get an 8hr combo job. Or fedex.com is hiring
     
  7. Only if you quit and get rehired

    How is he not grown up or being a man? You don't know his circumstances outside of what he said.

    Well that might be the route to take since I only have 3 years in the company
     
  10. Start at the bottom scale, no benefits, vacations or paid holidays

    Big risk for something that may not be guaranteed. You'd be at the bottom, which means you'd have to bank on nobody else bidding on it. Slim chance.
     
  12. We have list some if our younger guys because of the hours. The dint keep their eyes on the prize.

  14. It's hard to tell some 20 something that you have to deal with this crap for another 3 decades.

    If I was working Mon-Fri instead of Tues-Sat I probably would've quit by now
     
  17. In two years you will be making around 100k.

    Do it for a few years. At least get your five years in and have a little pension money later on in life.

  20. You are probably going to need a lot more time in.
