    Sounds like you mean the midnight sort 11:00PM Sunday night to 2:00AM Monday morning. Thru Thursday night 11:00PM to 2:00AM Friday morning. The sound more like it?

    Ours used to be. Worked it for 6 months. Music really jammed on Friday night into Saturday morning. Don't miss it a bit.

    I worked it for about a year. I coupled midnight with preload to make my eight+ hours. Wifey didn't like it too much, said I was grumpy all the time.

    You have to shovel the parking lot when the first storm arrives. It is in the contract.

    Yeah me too. Wife was pregnant at the time. Made a lot of money but thought the wife was going to divorce me. That was over 20 years ago. Went to the twi. and things are pretty good now.

    I was orginally a Saturday Air DRive, but continued driving Saturdays after i became a cover driver... SO by every Saturday i HAVE WELL over 40hrs which yields me a nice OT pay..

    Don't have enough PTers for Sat.? We normally use one or two Art. 22.3 air drivers to fill empty spots. Haven't hired a new Sat. driver in a long time.

    Second string, they're sorely mistaken. As an RTD/AIR/SAT driver, I am there when they are on vacation or call in, running the nightmare route that no one else can or wants to run. Finding air stops that I have never been to before and getting there on time (mostly! Don't ask me about the day downtown). I get OT on saturday cause I've already worked 50 during the week. And all this just to be kicked back to the pre-load in January. But supervision is still needing us then after the pre-load for whatever! I would love to tell them tough luck, hire me full time if you need me, but I need the money.

    If that's the case, you are going to make overtime, and I mean some SERIOUS OVERTIME! You will be making as much or more than the drivers. Oh, did management already provide a bunk bed in the center and a shower for you yet? If not, you're going to really need them. Enjoy :)
