    I have an interview this week for a package handler position, my question is, if I get the position is there any chance of me going on road and delivering air packages once I’m done pre loading? Also would I have an option to deliver on Saturdays to get more hours?
     
  2. Start with getting hired first.

    Seriously, what are the options for package handlers with delivery experience?

    Are there other part time jobs besides a package handler? Who delivers on Saturdays if the full time drivers are Monday- Friday?

    Every location is different. Ask HR these questions when you’re in the interview.

    Thanks, I worked for Fedex Express for 15 years so I was hoping with my experience that there would be some options to do some other things

    We just hired an Express driver off the street, and he’s in the middle of his training to be a full time driver.

    Awesome!! Maybe I’ll get lucky, I know they have a 6 to 1 ratio before they can do an outside hire. Hopefully it’s been a while at this location and they can do an outside hire. I’m 40 so I’m getting a late start

    Didn't they do away with the 6 to 1 in the new contract?

    BadIdeaGuy Not mine, but it needed immortalizing.

    For bid jobs, they're still all seniority based.

    You can have 10X as much experience delivering as the other part timers, but they'll get first shot at delivering because their seniority date is before yours.

    Just the way it works.

    Seeing as you claim to be a supervisor, you should know it as well as the members.

    After all, you guys agreed to it.
