    Hey all, I have been working this peak as a seasonal driver helper and have a couple quick questions.
    Does anyone know the current stance on overtime for helpers, been working 9 hour days and remember reading something about over 5 hours in a day or the 8 in a day, but haven't recieved OT pay, so im guessing it's 40 hour/wk? Haven't been taking the lunch break or anything.
    Also was checking the time card viewer on the site (it works about 10% of the time) and saw i'm making more money in a week i worked less, added up myself, (about 1 hour less, but 20$ more??) How's that possible
    Hope everyones been having a decent season so far, 250 stops today and been like this all the days i've helped so far!

  2. More than likely you won't get overtime unless you go over 40 hours a week

    This week was union dues. Welcome to the club.

    look at your deductions. Maybe they’re doing union initiation fees too
    Check your hours. I’m seeing some not getting paid for full work hours, instead, they get paid when first package is scanned

    Yeah that could definitely be it, makes sense. So far it does look like i'm being paid from start time and not first package scanned atleast.

    I worked as helper for one day this week and have indicated I'd like to work again. Haven't been contacted to work again though. I just get automated texts asking if I'm available, I answer Yes, but don't get asked to come in. ?? They really dont need helpers?

    Where are you? I believe almost every contract and even some states has rules about OT after 8 hours.

    Well this is the tough part. There are two separate contract supplements for PA. I found in the Central PA contract you should be paid OT after 8 hours. In the Western PA it looks a little tricky and I'm not sure. @IVE GOTTA PACKAGE 4U might know.

    But with out knowing which one you're in I can't give you a definite answer.
