it doesn't seem like the people that are doing that are all that
if your called back to work after January 15th, show up every day on time for the next 2 months or so until they start taking union initiation fees out of your check and your in. watch your missloads/missorts!
I am a permanent part-timer loading trucks. I haven't been here too long, but I've learned the faster you go the more work they give you. Once you learn to slow it down a little, keep a safe pace, and just take it one box at a time, the better off you'll be for the rest of your time here.
No it is not. If you've been hired before peak season all you must do is make your 30 days and you're some what in the clear. Then you'll be paying union dues until you're permanent. On the other hand, if you are hired during the date after thanksgiving for peak season, there is a %20 chance that management will keep you as a permanent PT employee.
I did it, anyone can do it. I was officially hired January 16th last year
So if there's only a %20 chance, I guess it is hard to get then right?
Where are you getting these numbers from?
If you're one guy competing against 4 others for one spot, then yes, you have a 20% chance, improve your odds by working harder than them and telling your HR/management that you want the permanent job on January 16th.
Once you make book, work safe and enjoy the ride and apply for TCD every time the list appears.
Let them know you want to be a permanent. If they don't hire you right away don't worry. We usually hire a few guys at first, then when the turnover picks up we call the guys who wanted to stay on.
Can you fog a mirror?
thank you, Frigid
What is TCD?
Just have to be a super hot chick! Instant hiring!
Temporary Cover Driver, the first step to becoming a Full Time Driver, which is what many PTer's work at UPS for.
Temporary Cover Driver. The only reason UPS does not have to hire more FT drivers.
Most of the TCD's in my building are FT after 2 years and very few who are still TCD's don't work every day. I swear absolutely nothing about my building matches the standard UPS model.
...just to lay them off when the volume drops...?
Yes, but they would still be FT with FT retirement years being accrued.
Follow up- who really makes the decision to bring certain people on perm part time and cut others?
Ability, attitude, and punctuality.
Usually, @FrigidFTSup calls me and asks my sage advice.
Then, I go back to bed.
