    Went to driver school in October in Obetz for seasonal. Now having to go back to the same class for a FT bid. Anybody hear of this?

    Happened in my center with air drivers when they were promoted to FT.

    Did the air drivers attend a full or abbreviated driving school?

    Apparently this is the norm in my center as well. Seasonals went to driving school then two got hired FT...back to driving school all in less than 6 months. Heard it has something to do with changing classifications.

    Seems like yet another waste of resources but what do I know...

    Yes I feel it's an absolute waste. 2 months before my driving class in oct I had an abbreviated air driving class. So then I basically did the same thing in seasonal driving class with the addition of the 5 and 10. I finished all the IBT by Wednesday. Dumb

    Yeah, happens here too, however those who have already passed driver school only go for 2 or 3 days.

    It's also the easiest $32 an hour you will ever make.

    It's funny they say you have to go back to learn something , but once you go FT you never go back to school
