No inside bidders, Manager hires from outside

    At our center we have a posting from a permanent package car driver. Required to hire from within. No inside bidders so the center manager is going to hire from the outside.

    When that happens, does the rotation of inside:outside hires get reset?

    No. That counts as an outside hire when filling the 6 for 1. But if nobody inside bids on any future jobs, the 6 for 1 is pretty much useless. The company will hire off the street to fill them if no inside bids.

    What an ambitious set of inside employees.

    Whatever the reason, if center manager puts up 5 bids, and not enough inside guys are qualified for them, he can hire how many they were short from the street, and then it goes back to inside again, if there are any.

    Would you prefer the positions be left unfilled?

    No, absolutely not. That is something he has to do if the positions are not filled from within.

    I've never understood why all full time bids were not offered to insid part timers first, even offering transfers from other states before ever hiring off the street.

    What a bunch of wise employees.
    Get your degree and don't become a whiney driver.

    Not in contract?
    UPS wants fresh blood with outside experience who understands the real world.

    Maybe even get a couple of good management people that way.

    Nope.
    don't need the money and I go on photography trips when I need to get away.
    I did not work at UPS for 40 years to go back.

  13. Most of my workforce is college students working to get through school. I could see why they wouldn't sign a bid.

    Part time turnover is high enough that they pretty much are fresh blood. Don't think too many of these young bloods ever understand the real world though.

    Why get a degree when UPS pays us over 100k to deliver cardboard with zero production standards, full benefits, pension and we get a company car? And if the brownies want, triple time for going over 95.

    There is a difference between fresh blood and fresh meat.

    Oh, I don't know---perhaps they want to use their minds rather than their backs.
