Greetings all, I will cut straight to the chase, here is my situation. I was hired last October as a seasonal hire package car driver. Sounds great right a guy coming right off the street getting hired as a driver. Well I was informed as to what the term "seasonal" driver actually meant. The problem I had was not being sure how long I would be "seasonal" or just how long I would have a job. I already was an employee of another company but was placed on furlough due to the lack of needs for said company. Anyway I worked for 1 month with UPS then I was called back to the other company. I liked what I was doing with UPS but the being laid off Jan 3rd then possible hired again in May was killing me, so I went into the area managers office and explained my situation. I asked if I could give him my 2 weeks notice and he allowed that. When I went in for my last day I was called by the area manager to go to his office. I walked in and he was sitting there with my on road supervisor. I thought I did something wrong, but they only wanted to do what I would call a exit interview. Anyway I was asked straight up why was I leaving before the season ended. I explained my situation was honest in all aspects. So I was told by him he understands completely and that he wished there was something they could do because they liked my attitude and work ethic. Anyway back to the railroad I went, now about a week in, I get called by the UPS dispatch guy asking if I could come in to work????????? Strange I know he knows I left so what's going on well I called a guy that I knew from UPS and explained what was going on and was told I was talked about very highly there by other drivers and managers alike so they were going to continue to call me to ask if I wanted to work. Well I couldn't do it because my other job was on call so that wouldn't work. Well now it's Feb of 2016 and guess what happens. I get furloughed again, I can't believe this. So now it's May and I'm still without work trying to do odd jobs here and there to stay afloat when what happens. I get a call from the UPS HR guy that hired me the first time asking me if I would like to come back. Only downfall is its for a "seasonal" driver position. I am hesitate as to how long a summer season is. I ask why was I called if I left before the season was over and was told I was called out by name by the area manager who told the HR guy before they hire anyone else make sure I get called first. Talk about surprised and happy, that's a understatement as to how I was feeling. So I asked about the possibility of getting seniority and was told to call the area manager. I did and was assured that I would be the 1st guy on the list to get seniority if and when a position becomes available. Also that being hired now as a seasonal driver means I would be working at least to Jan 2017. Anyway is it bad for me to expect to get seniority during this season, can it happen before Jan 17 or how does it work???? Thank you all for reading this novel I just wrote and any advice or input is welcomed. Also have a great weekend.
