    A couple years ago I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit to being a driver. I'm still not sure. The job isn't horrible but working till 630 7 every night is getting old. I can't coach, can't ref, can't do this or that. I'm just not sure I want to make this commitment for the next 25 years.

    Can I go back to pre-load and a utility/air driver? If so what kind of pay decrease would I be at?

    I've never heard of anyone doing it once making seniority.

    Well I've only been doing it 2 years, I have another year before I make seniority. Possible then?

    I know a guy who did....had to quit as a driver first. He went from top driver rate...to $11/hr preload...as a new hire. Lost his seniority too.

    Is it possible? Yes. Odds of you getting it? Slim and none.

    To go back, you would have to bid into a FT preload/combo position. You can't just go back to your old gig because you don't care for the hours.

    No, that's not correct. You made your seniority after 30 days. You haven't hit top rate, there is a difference

    Bid on a preload/porter combo job or preload/EAM job. Probably some of the best jobs to have but not many want them because of the early start. I know a few people in my building start at 2:30 AM to be a porter, work preload from 4:00-8:30ish, then go home around 10:30/11:00.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Not to be a jerk, but you should have known that going in or you just didn't pay attention or talk to drivers about the kind of hours being worked. You got 2 choices stay driving and make great money and provide for your family or quit and reach into your pocket everyday and feel nothing but your leg from being broke as a joke cause your not making any money. Eventually you gotta decide whats more important, making a lot of money and giving up all that stuff pre driver days, or being broke. Easy decision really dude.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Yeah my reply was gonna be. I wish I got off that early everyday.

    Even 8 hours a day makes it impossible to do the things the OP wants to do.
