Was talking to an older driver and he told me there was a time that if a pt driver/cover driver is used on a route for a certain amount of days/hours, that driver would be grandfathered into full time possibly on that route. theres a bid route in my center where the full time driver is on leave because of hip surgery and it looks like he's not coming back any time soon. This happens to be the route I did my 30 days and ran everyday during peak. They tried to train a 10 year inside guy on the route, who went straight to full time. even I trained him for the first 3 days on the route. he was really tough to train, way too much for me I've only been driving since November. He ended scratching up the truck badly on both sides trying to pull out the building his first day solo. he was given extra shots after the accident which was blatantly covered up by management. After missed pickups, bad customer feedback, and not knowing the delivery points after 5 days of training they pulled him off the route. Now It seems I'm doing the route every day because we're short staffed it only makes sense to put me on the route since I've shown I can perform and it leaves them flexibility to move the other cover drivers around who know multiple routes. Anyway I know I'm being overly optimistic, but is there any language regarding jumping to full time if used on a route consistently or is it just straight seniority. South east region.
