    The only FT air drivers we have are Art 22.3. Most work preload and then deliver NDA's. Have a couple that are porters during the day and do letter box pick ups in the PM. Great jobs. If that is what you want. Just wait for a bid to be posted.

    When there is a need for an air driver, HR will put up an intent sheet in several parts of building. Everyone that wants that position signs their name. Highest seniority person gets the job.

    A lot of times, the air drivers take a ground route out if needed.

    What is it about the FT driver gig that makes you want to become an air driver?

    i started working in Nj but when they rehired me i was transfered to NY. Do you think there's any way i can go back to NJ building as well? or i have to wait at least 1 year in order to put my name on transfer list and then do that??

    I have never heard a FT hourly get a transfer. Doubt that will happen.

    Are you getting the hours because of the snow? or just high volume? Being that you are in your probation period, I would worry about qualifying/making book. Bear with the management, they will probably change in a little while. Usually after a couple years, they like to bring in new to stir the pot a little.

    Basically FT inside jobs. Less money, less stress.
