    I am a full time driver who wants to go to part time. Everyone is baffled by this. But it's what I want to do for personal reasons. (Finishing up school) However everyone tells me that the only way out is to quit. I would want to be a part time air driver, but it looks like I'm going to have to start fresh at the bottom again doing my specialty. (unloading) I wish it were easier to go from full to part but oh well. I took on being a driver expecting to only be seasonal but they offered me a full time position close to home so I just decided to jump on it. But now.. Anyways, how hard is it to become a part time air driver?

    Couldn't HR hook you up as a new hire? Are you in a large hub?

    What about transferring to a different hub/center?

    From what I've heard from the hr guy, it's "up or out" at ups.

    From what I've been told, that's not possible. Going full time is like crossing the point of no return. I've been told that if you're cover that there's a way to go back to just being a hub worker, but I don't know if that's exclusive from failing probation.

    If that's the option for you, I really don't see what the problem is. You're going back to school (presumably to leave UPS), just get another Saturday gig if all you care about is extra income.

    I must say, I'm baffled.
