    I am going in a couple days for an interview for a full time seasonal driver position and am just wondering what the odds are that it could turn into a permanent position. Any input would help. Thanks

    There are way too many variables for anyone here to be able to give you "odds" on it happening.

    You put the "odds" in your favor by working your butt off while you are here.

    What city or region you applied for?

    Chances are it won't. At my center there's a line for driving among part time permanents and management typically likes to use the 1 in every 6 hires outside slot to give a PT supervisor a shot at training for FT sup or FT driver.

    Suppose he was foolish enough to give you this information. Would you then be able to answer his questions with any degree of certainty?

    Does being in the military give me any advantages?

    It did for me. 8 years Air Force. Hired off the street as a driver in 1989. DM at the time was also a vet----told me that my vet status sealed the deal.

  8. Might give you advantage for getting hired. Everything here is based on seniority. You could get lucky and be a company pick.

    I tried to change it but i can't find where to do that. When I signed up I didn't think it would use that.

    Send a PM to the site owner (Cheryl) and ask her to change your user name.

    Click on your name, click on your profile and at the far right is a tab to change your username.

    Or, PM Cheryl or a mod.

    Just heard in morning last week that a new government contract we got requires hiring vets. Good luck

    It looks like you already changed it. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
