I have only been at UPS for 3-4 months down here in Louisiana. Although I have worked at this same HUB in 2011 for peak season. I hate to be "that guy" but I am daily acknowledged as the hardest worker my bosses/coworkers have ever worked with. I've set a record of 19 minutes to unload a 100% feeder by myself. All Sounds douchy but ever since I started preload has been getting off between an 1 to 1 and a half hours early. I'm only giving these details because today i was approached by the top dog in my center, and was told that there were going to be driving positions available and that he wanted me to sign the bid first(which the order doesn't matter i know). Anywho, he told me due to my drive and work ethic that he wanted to me on the road if I wanted to. Which is a hell yes! preload? 10$/hr?, 4 hours daily? I'd never miss it. He was also in my feeder unzipping bags while I unloaded like a madman. Which he definitely let the whole belt know, "THIS IS WHY Y'ALL GET TO GO HOME EARLY!". But this leaves me suspicious of my ultimate question... Is there any cases of Extremely Hard work overruling seniority in any fashion whatsoever? Even if, which one of my good friend/coworkers told me, that I'd more than likely be a cover driver or drive air, then work my way up the ladder of seniority to FT driver? Or do you think that my boss just sees my hard work and tells me what I want to hear to ensure that i keep up the work ethic. Won't quit UPS or be bothered by any reply so lay it on me. Sorry for tooting my own horn but it's important details.
