    You will know when you know. Some buildings are hiring off the street, some are not. Drivers in your loop will know better than anyone here.

    Yeah so I’ve heard. Guess I’ll have to pay my dues like everyone else which I’m fine with.

    Some have told me that they’re hiring off the street more because everyone in the building is either too young or just doesn’t care to drive. I’m just leaving it to fate and letting the pieces fall wherever they may.

    With the 6 inside to 1 off the street hiring ratio it sounds like working inside would be the best way to be hired FT.

    What if there are not 6 inside that want to drive? I assume that ratio would be S__t canned?

    Basically they’ll just hire straight from outside

    in the west they have to clear the transfer list before they can break the 6to 1 rule. last year my center got 3 transfers and one off the street in January because no one in the building wanted to drive. so it really depends on where you are. my center has a lot of people who started as seasonal drivers and never worked inside.

    The company would still owe the Union the FT jobs from inside. Which is why I said working inside first would be the best way to a FT delivery job.

    Not in my building. We filled 4 FT spots in a row from outside because no one signed the PT to FT bids.

    Depends on where you are at... hell he might be a feeder driver in a year at his location... many places are hurting for drivers it’s ridiculous
     
  20. The slower time of the year will be here shortly less volume and less people in vacations. So it could be a little while.
