    Thanks for all the insight . I asked my HR if the $28 was starting rate or Top Pay & again she insisted that it’s starting at $28 . I’ll just wait and see what comes up on my check & go from there . I’ll let you all know what comes of this . Again thanks to everyone for trying to help get the right answers .

    HR has nothing to do with payroll. Their assurances mean nothing. HR's only responsibility is to the company and to fill open employment spots.

    Looking for some advice. I have 7 years inside hub. I won a part time P.M. air driving Job. Would you guys take this job or will I make more money with overtime inside during peak? And after peak will I get more than 20 hours a week? (that's what I get inside normally)

    Take the PT PM air route. You can always go back to your Hub job. I doubt if you will be making $30/hr anytime soon working inside the Hub.Plus the freedom of not having some teenage PT sup telling you to hurry up every couple of minutes.

    Ahhh ! Tonight will be my first run to the airport alone . For 3 days last week I rode with the guy that usually does the air . But today I’ll be solo for the first time . I know the route , but I guess just newbie jitters are eating at me . Anyhow I’m hoping for a good night . Hopefully I get there on time that’s my biggest worry .

    Don't worry if you're not on time-----I'm sure the pilot will patiently wait for you to show up.

    How far do you have to drive to the airport that you needed 3 days of training? Our airport run is 10 miles and about 20 minutes one way. Ran it everyday last week.
