    Better not be , the last 4 PCMS have been about “ growth” and “ expanding the company “

    Ah ok. This is for an office position. Been getting the run around about there being a hiring freeze for almost a months now. Just seeing what’s the deal. Anyone know if it’s been officially lifted?
     
  6. I heard that but thought because of the holiday they aren’t doing classes or hiring next week

    Haven’t started and it seems like a nightmare already lol
     
  10. It’s the best nightmare though, the benefits are non comparable, the work is tough but it’s worth it.

    Nope, not officially. Just had my interview in late feb, and still waiting to start. Been keeping in contact with the people who interviewed me and they said I can’t start yet cause of a hiring freeze.. last I heard from them was last week.

    Don’t be a supervisor, become a driver
     
  15. Keep at em, honestly this will be the job you regretted not to get, it’s tough but it can become a real career. Stay at it and good luck. Also maybe talk to locations in your area. Some might need people while others might not

    Yeah it’s a good office job, from what I got at the interview there’s lots of room to grow and move around. I’ll give them a call on Monday, hopefully something is sorted out by then
     
  17. It’s probably been so long bc office jobs don’t open up very often, if you want in, go to preload. Move around from there, I’ve usualy only ever seen women filling those spots. Could be coincidence. Who knows.

    Yes, worked 4 over 9.5’s this week, that’s after using an option day for the 5th. Only thing frozen here is their desire to put more routes in.
