    to get hired in full time(or even PT) if your hired as a seasonal helper? I know there are a lot of people layed off right now and it seems a lot of people don't particularly care for seasonal helpers hired off the street but if you are a helper that shows up early, works at a fast pace(all day), and picks things up quickly, can it happen? Any advice?

    Yeah, it's possible, but with the economy in the tank and the talk of layoffs at UPS, I would say it's not probable.

    If you work hard then you will get on eventually as PT if you want to. However, it is extremely rare that anyone off the street is hired on full time. I think my center has had one in the last 15 years go from street to full time.

    The OP is in Ohio.

    Won't there be a buttload of DHL people looking for work there????

    Good luck with that.

    To answer your question.....

    We have had several helpers ask for PT work. With the usual PT turnover, they usually show up on one of the shifts by late January....

    The last 7 driver helpers I have had asked me the same question. I even offered them to have me down as a reference. Never saw any of them again.
