    Preload = 18
    Driving = 21
    FT = 25

    If I would have been smarter I would have taken a FT combo bid or something just to get FT but I was too greedy and worried I would get stuck in one of those positions. Most of the people I know that did that would only get stuck like that for a couple months. I could be quite a bit higher if I would have done that but oh well, such is life.

    Hired off the street to drive peak of '83, gained full time seniority in early April '84. Starting pay was 75% of top pay, with a 5% raise every month. Five months into my career at UPS I was at top pay. Not bad!

    19 yo p/t for 2 1/2 years. Started driving when I was 21

    As the saying goes, "Leave yourself an out".---Go to school, start a business, learn a trade, get an additional job, etc, while you're p/t.
    Going f/t isn't always the answer!
