    So what does that mean? Is that some shady tactic to get loaders in the door. I made it clear that’s not position I am applying for. Don’t see why they would send me to get my DOT card already if that was the case.

    Yes....you will be on road as needed and on the preload when not. They will tell you the day before what you will be doing the next day. There may be days where you do preload and then go on road for a few hours running off bulk stops or resi splits.

    I just got hired as a 22.4. I was reading the National Master Agreement trying to see if this is somehow a seasonal/temp position. Volume is crazy in my region, and the ORS told me that they expect it to get busier. Is this position solid because I am hired outside of peak? Or is this a backdoor way for them to hire temp drivers during this surge then DQ me from something silly if/when volume goes down?

    The position is solid; however, your inside time might increase once this Pandemic Peak is over. They are obligated to use you before they use temps.

    Thank you, from my understanding, I am not guaranteed 40 hours. Which is fine, I understand that I need to put my time in there. But is doing pre-load optional? Or can you be let go for not taking it? Only wondering since the hours are much different than driving and make not always work with my schedule.

    If preload was optional nobody would show up

    The 22.4 combination driver was created to help both the preload and driver groups. Yes, you would be let go if you refused to work the preload when "asked" to do so.

    And, no, you are not guaranteed 40 hours.

    I’m not sure if here is the best place to ask about what I’m about to say: I started abt a month before last peak season in Nassau NY. Long story short after peak they laid me till March . Right about time the Corona situation gee serious BUT not in the center I was suppose to work. Since then they are sending me to a building 45miles away from where I live(I get paid for travel time,btw. Which is good lol) , now I got 47 days, no accident no injury and even scratching the rout but still no promotion call. The Nassau center manager said bcz I was not working there the entire time they have no control on what I did so far. If I want to make book I have to go thru Hampton center and stay there ( which I’m ok with that) but the Hampton Manager is saying I am not their employee so he can not do anything for me. I am confused all other new trainees with me made book but me. if some one can help me what should I do ?

    You need to contact HR at your current location as you are clearly getting screwed.
