    I was a driver helper with one of the highest seniority drivers. He put in a good word for me and I accepted an offer for pre load. He knows I want to drive, and said he's still putting in a good word for me. He also told me no one is signing the sheets for driving jobs. I don't have my 30 days in yet, so my question is can I sign the sheet for a TCD spot? It's empty and is open till the end of this week.

    Sign it, worse that can happen is they say no.

  4. How in the world can you sign a bid without any seniority or being in the union?

    That was my train of thought
     
  6. Put your name on it. It's not going to cisc you anything. How many days until you get your 30 in?

    My only thoughts to the contrary were they know my goals, and the sheet is empty. My rapport while limited, is very good so far.

  9. Maybe nobody else will sign it and they will have to post it again.

    Don't you have to put your seniority date on it?

    Do you think they'd end up going outside to fill it? Wouldn't it be better to give an in-house rookie a shot?

    Yes, which doesn't happen till I hit my 30. Correct? Maybe I can post date it lol

    PA. There are three sheets up. One for FT inside slots for PTers which only has three signatures. One TCD- no signatures. One Air Exception- no signatures

    Maybe he'd be the off the street hire, then.

    We have had two PT bid air driver jobs posted for a couple weeks with no one signing.

    Are you in a hub or small center? People here sign lists just to read their names as they walk by.
