Unbelievable there seems to be a driver shortage in Chicago. Centers are hurting for new drivers, and the ranks dont want to fill them, they are waiting for combo jobs. 1 This is unheard off, is this happening anywhere else in the country?
Thats bull, there a long list of 705 pkg car drivers waiting to go into feeder. What the uppers dont want is to give up the pkg car drivers.Don`t know about package but I know they`re having a hard time finding guys to come to feeder from package. Heard part of it was some guys don1t want to do nights and such. Oh well, they must like humping Nordic Tracs and such.

they are hiring pkg car drivers of street or part-timers that have only work a couple of weeks
They'll play games with you here, too (at least with respect to inside hires, I have no reason to expect they'd play any nicer with an off-the-street or part-time management hire). A co-worker hired on just before last Peak season expressly to become full-time PC driver (he'd been a casual for USPS but prospects for full time were nil). They threw him in with us hubrats and really worked him hard. Yanked his chain for a long time before even letting him take the road test. They finally sent him to school, only to send him back to the hub with the excuse that there weren't any available training supes in any of our centers. And even if there were, THERE WERE ONLY 30 DAYS LEFT TO GET HIS 40 DAYS IN! I'd been trying to gently clue him in that he needed to check with our local and not just rely on what UPS was spoonfeeding him, when I spotted our B.A. and introduced the two of them. She confirmed what I suspected, that 9-10 mos. in the hub was nowhere near enough seniority on our building's list (we can apply for PC into any or all of 10 different buildings, some may have a list that short)(feeders in any or all of 5 buildings after 1 year PC). But last I heard he did go out on the road, maybe he figured boiling in a brown truck during the day would be a nice break from roasting in a gray trailer at night.If it is true, that Chicago has difficulty finding PC drivers, I would be willing to relocate to drive there!!! My husband works there as it is and only see him on weekends. My center has been playing games with me for months, keeping me around with the off-the-street-hire speech. I work hard and work well, if I have to move, heck I'm packing my house up tomorrow!!!
We are having cover drivers DQ themselves to go back to part time due to all the management BS. We also have had at least 5 full timers quit in the last 10 months over the BS. They are still fortunate enough to get peolpe to sign up but are having a hard time keeping them. I still can't figure out why UPS will not allow transfers for full timers?Unbelievable there seems to be a driver shortage in Chicago.
