    I was confused on how it worked.. Always thought after 4 years of driving you would be at top pay which would be around $35 and hour when I get there but found out that I was wrong. Can anyone explain how the 4 year progression works..

    Yes, after 4 years of driving you would be at whatever top rate is at that time.

    After progression you will be making the same Dollar/hour rate as a 30 year driver. There is only one top dollar rate.

    Anyone in 4 year progression would not have topped out yet.

    After 4 years you should be at top rate.

    Top rate will be different in 4 years because of contractual raises also

    It's 4 years after being FULL TIME. If you became full time before the current contract, it's 3 years. Also, if you were a TCD before becoming full time, you will stay at 85% if the top rate until the end of the "progression."

    Will drivers in 4 yr progression get contractual raises?

    Driver under the 4 yr progression will not get contractual raises per the new contract only the progression raises on the yearly full time anniversary date.


    Drivers under the old contract/three year progression will get 3 raises as topped out drivers but will also get their progression raises based on their annual full time senority date.

    Do yourself a favor. When you do get to top rate try to put away as much as you can. If you can live comfortably at $25/hr you should be able to continue to do so while maxing out your 401k at $36/hr.

    Finally something we actually agree on. Personally I think working part time where you dont make much money helps better prepare you when you make the big bucks.

    My last year in the military I finally topped $20k. UPS money was a nice change of pace.

    When you hit top-rate, is that when they stop making you go help other drivers after you've finished your route?
