    I'm aware that this question has been asked and answered multiple times on this forum. I've read most responses varying from, "if you're a good pre-loader and helper you most likely will be kept." On the other hand a lot of you say the chance is very slim. That being said I want to ask about my situation and see what the veterans think. Small town, very rural area. It's pretty competitive to get into seems like but I've been on time every day and never been late once. I have doubled as a pre-loader and helper every single day pulling 50+ hours a week. I know all of this is speculation but according to the information I provided and everyone's experience, what is the likelihood I'll be kept after Dec. 25th/Jan.15th?

    In my rural one belt center, doing all that wouldn't get you a cup of coffee nevermind a job. Our guys have to make the donkeys squeal without losing a drop. If you can do that, I guarantee you they will keep you on long after peak and possibly offer you a more permanent position as a preload or dispatch supe.

    .5% African and the rest would be caucasian with a hint of native american. Does this help?

    Have you noticed the lower than expected volume?

    I would not count on it.

    As this is my first peak season, I have not. How's it looking for seasonal's being hired back on at your location?

    I work at a Hub with hundreds of PT and UPS hires 12 months out of the year. How many PT at your building?

    S*t that's even less than ours. I would guess that the chances are slim then.

    I have heard in the small Centers that PT stay forever. Especially after they start making $20 to $30/hr.

    Turnover rate seems high.

    Even more so in a strong economy. If you're not kept on post-seasonal stint, you might still get a call asking you to come back by April or May as those who were kept move on.

    Then you have a good chance of being hired permanent in a few months. Haven't you wondered why the turn over rate is high?

    Sure, my thoughts boil it down to be either 1 of 2 things. People can't handle the early hours and the intense labor required or my generation is lazy.
