So what's the Buzz around the center ?
What happened and where is Willow Grove? Inquiring minds want to know and make completely off topic comments.
well last I heard its the number one hub that feeds Philadelphia area.
Also known as Horsham
There's always more to the truth than meets the eye.
So is it really that busy that there hiring feeders of the street
Very true. Same thing with pc drivers. Hiring spree going on which hasn't been seen since the 80's. If
you go around that building and check all the driver seniority lists you'll see they all have a bunch of people hired in the 80's.
Alot of people coming up on 30 years.
I was told by an old center manager of mine they got the word to hire. Besides that, they don't want a repeat of the mess that was
So most likely if you have a cdl off the street and are clean your a shoe in for the feeder spot .
...and after a few months you may need a shoe horn to get in to your uniform pants?
Willowgrove is 5 clicks away from Walnut grove [quoItwts2te="scratch, post: 1371531, member: 1674"]What happened and where is Willow Grove? Inquiring minds want to know and make completely off topic comments.[/quote]
Probably after any PC drivers, FT hub folks, PT hub folks. Maybe.
Probably pretty easy to stay slim trying to outrun cars in the street.
Just to answer your question Scratch. Willow Grove is a major east coast hub about a half hour out of Philly.
Pretty much runs 24/7. Major feeder runs in all directions, daily and sleeper teams.
Pretty much. I've been told that's happening already.
So is the feeders job different or more difficult at Willow Grove then say a different hub ?
Not necessarily hiring off the street. They are having these new hires get hired to be in the HUB for a day and then sign the list for feeders and taken out almost immediately. That way they aren't casuals and they just jump right into FT driver positions.
you can't use 'feeder job' and 'difficult' in the same sentence. It's an oxymoron.
? please elaborate
Not sure how to explain it better.
If you get hired off the street for a feeder position and already possess a CDL, they usually get hired as casuals. You have no bid and you have no guarantee of hours. You're UPS's bitch (but aren't we all).
Now if you get hired as an inside employee then you start gaining seniority and you can sign a bid list for other jobs including feeders. Once qualified for feeders you now have seniority and now are on the Q list and can bid routes and vacations with all the rest of the feeder drivers.
Oh I heard they were full time and made seniority I guess that's what got me
Separate names with a comma.
