    Do you have to wait for a p/t position to open to transfer shifts (preload to twilight)?

    If so once a position is open do you have to go to the spot vacated or low seniority position?

    There should be a listing somewhere in your hub/center of available positions on the different sorts. You should be able to bump onto the sort you choose provided you have more total company seniority and you are not trying to bump a preferred job. Providing you are qualified to bump into the position.

    Not sure. I'm sure if they want you on a different shift then they can bypass all the red tape and make it happen!

    I once double shifted and did preload. They had me loading a truck. After 2 days I had it down and loaded the truck with no missloads and was helping loaders in trucks near me. The preload FT sup begged me to transfer to preload.
