    Everyone in different post says its not worth it but then others say it is.

    I have a lot of senority at the company as an air driver. But i see new fulltime faces everyday and know that nows the time to go. Well technically january 2014 would of been but still...

    Air driver:
    -Decent money
    -Job secure cause i cant really screw up because its easy
    -Weird hours but can sleep in
    -Its just :censored2:ing easy with good pay getting max ground wages when they need me
    -Worst thing is no secure income, i make anywhere from 500-2500 in a week and if the economy ever dips i wont be making :censored2: for awhile.
    -Also more oppurtunities for inside jobs as my senority grows

    Full time:
    -Great money
    -Fun being outside, generally away from management
    -Less job security, if i get in accidents/injured i could get fired/stuck on disability
    -Long hours, less social life but get actual weekends

    Every damn day for the last two months i think, "ok im switching to fulltime," 5min later "air drivers better." Literally every 5min for last 2 months. Cant :censored2:ing make a commitment and just keep losing senority if my decision is to go fulltime :/

    Go ft driving. Air driving is totally not a secured job.

    Didn't even bother reading your post.

    Grow up, put your big boy pants on and make a decision based on what you think. Not what a bunch of people on an Internet forum think.

    Rainman Its all good.

    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by going full time. If you don't like it during your 30 days, you can always do something to get DQed.

    Kmart sux. So does Walmart. And Orion.

    Only a fool would let a bunch of strangers on an anonymous Internet forum make their decision for them.

    How many times have you let someone pass you up in seniority? I think if your situation stunk you would jump on full-time. Not everyone has the best of both worlds.

    Nobody on here can tell you what you should do, but if it's something you've thought of, then give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen?

    Why not try to do the seasonal driving for peak or summer to see how you like it?

    Remember, people come on here to complain. No one jumps on here to tell everyone how they had a good day. It's the internet, where people get to pop off anonymously.

    At the end of the day, FT drivers that quit is almost nonexistent. Don't you think there's a good reason for that?
