    Just recently was offered to go driving since they are in need of drivers. Been with the company for 5 years , pt sup for 4, so Ive seen how management in general is with hourlies and frankly it disgusts me. They have been jerking me around with the promise of promotions to full time supervisor and I'm getting tired of hearing it. Any drivers out there that went driving after being a pt sup? Any advice?

    Go back to pt sup or management in general?

    At one time a PT sup was required to spend some time on the road (usually at least 60 days) before they could get promoted to full time management. That went away so many PT sups choose to stay a driver instead of going back into management now.

    My building has many FT drivers that were PT sups. Haven't seen any PT sups go driving in years.

    If you haven't been promoted yet then you won't be promoted. Come on out on the road and enjoy your freedom.

    Freedom is another word for nothing else to lose?

    Maybe I'm biased because I'm one of the few that actually likes to do the job. And I also hardly ever work past 6:30. So when I hear people on here talk about working until 8-9:00, I can't empathize.

    I did about 8.5 yes ago. Take the driving job and don't ever look back.

    I left management and became a driver. Make your decision and never look back. Man up, son.

    Are they letting you drive so they can promote you to full-time? That's pretty much the only way a p/t sup in our building goes driving. They want them for f/t management.

    Or the 6:1 ratio...but me thinks this would either be classified as the pre-FT sup driving period or as a casual maybe. Just make sure you wouldn't be considered a casual/TCD so you have the possibility of gaining seniority.

    From what I heard today there is literally no freedom in driving

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Why the hell would you want to go into full time supervision after you see how idiotic the supes are in the first place and how they cant do a dam thing right anyway, and youd be a puppet? Makes no sense, no incentive to go into management at all. Deal with unrealistic bs everyday, no pension, pay a lot for your health insurance and if you lose your job, your done forever with the company. Think about it son long and hard before you really :censored2: your life up in a bad bad way.

    Sounds like you already know how they are going to treat you if you go driving.
