Package Handler

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?

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?

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.

If you were really the best supe ever, you'd probably know the rules at your workplace... ;)

National:
Section 4. (a) Part-time employees shall be given the opportunity to fill full-time jobs before hiring from the outside on a six for-one basis (six (6) part-time to every one (1) outside hire).
