    Ok, so I have my second child on the way now and have been considering going driving. Recently someone with less seniority than I have by a few months just got called up for a Saturday air driving position but still remains part time. My question is if we are both on a drivers list at the same time does she now get chosen first because of some sort of driving seniority?

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    If you never want to see your kids and miss them growup go driving. If you want to see your kids grow up and have a life, work their part time and work a part time job or think about getting a different career. That's the truth ask any guys in your center and they will share a similar story wit ya.

    Nah I gotcha dude, its all good. Totally cool bro lol. I just feel bad for some of these young boys ive seen come in and start having kids and then complain of never being able to spend enough times with their kids. I hate seeing it dude for real, sucks I feel for some of the guys. Im lucky I don't have any so I don't have that issue. You know where im coming from dude.

    If you have more time then she has
    You should go first..Saturday air driver is a good start to see if you are for the ft job ..I'd question why she went before you ..good luck

    If your more senior and you have taken the class and passed and your driving record is ok, your first shes 2nd. File a grievance on that.

    If you're name was not on the air driver bid list then that driver will have more seniority for air driving. But if you want to go full-time they will call you up first regardless of that person having more driving seniority.

    Op isn't saying someone was given ft before them. Just asking if air driving would put said part timer ahead of op for ft. Like I allready said. No. Senority rules. And yes jumpman I do know where your coming from. I got 2 little girls. I would love to spend more time with them but it is what it is.

    You have no idea what its like to work at ups then work at another job, do you? Its much worse than being a driver at UPS, believe that.

    I haven't put my name in yet, so i didn't question it. I was more concerned with if I do put my name in, if she'll be picked first due to more driving experience.
