  1. What does the bid say?

    Just the position and requirements and a chart where you fill out your information. Is there something I should be looking for?
     
  3. Does it say temporary cover driver, 22.4 or RPCD

    I think it said full time driver intent or something to that effect. I'm not sure, though. Will update once the new sheet goes up.
     
  5. Good luck.

    If he goes in 3 months he won’t even be taught the Dok. They’ll scan his license and hand him a key fob

    I've seen the company dq drivers because they wanted them to stay loaders. You better be one hell of a driver and knock it out of the park if you want them to qualify you.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    I am going to hijack this thread and ask are current inside employees are considered regular hires if they accept a bid right now? HR says it is 22.4 which is fine I just don't want to be seasonal bait. Western region. Steward is not picking up the phone.

    I assume inside employees accepting bids are not seasonal. But I would love a clarification.
     

  9. Nah, if you’re less than a year inside your sent for RPCD to last through peak, if you’re inside about a year they’ll send you for 22.4, which you’ll likely not qualify...but hey, you can drive the brown truck until next year...
     

  10. And no you’re in too early for seasonal bait. You’ll know when the “seasonals” show up, you’ll likely be doing your job and half of theirs.

    Quick update. I got suckered into being a seasonal, then combo driver after peak with high probability of being regular very shortly after. Still not bad considering I came in as a loader in June. Took road test recently and got integrad next week.
     
  12. Good luck

    They've been pretty honest about making me a driver ASAP. We'll see. Gotta stay positive like Magic.

    Why can't you comment on whether you found the school to be useful or not until you go on road for the first day?

    Same reason I can't comment on a knife until I've actually cut something
