After searching and skimming through multiple threads for more than an hour I have come to the conclusion that the couple questions I have are either not answered in previous threads or are not easily found so I figured I'd make my own thread...... I put an application in and have been contacted about a PART TIME yard shifter position in Atlanta Fulton county terminal and I have a few questions about that job and yard switching for UPS in general. I have seen some threads indicating that the positions of "yard shifter" and "feeder" are related, though from what I've gathered im assuming that feeders are full time senior workers that bid for those jobs and yard switching is something that they may do only if things are slow. The person that contacted me back said that PART TIME yard switcher starts at $10.50 per hour with excellent benefits but some of the threads I read were saying yard shifters make upwards of $23hr. (I can deal with the low pay to start if it turns into something worthwhile later on) My main questions are..... 1. Are there full time yard switcher positions? 2. If so are full time yard switchers hired on from part time yard switchers??.. Or is it a coveted position that is bid on by senior guys? 3. Do part time yard shifters have regular schedules and hours? 4. Do yard switchers get regular breaks? Full time or part time? 5. Is the job itself easy? (I have a Class A CDL and years ago I was a yard jockey at another company and am very comfortable backing up pups all the way to 53's... I guess I'm asking if the people or pace make it stressful) If anyone has personal 1st hand experience with the Atlanta Fulton Terminal and can tell me a few other things I would be greatful for that info as well... I was reading ups yard trucks do not have A/C.... Is that true in Atlanta? I have done day shift yard work in the past without A/C and refer units blowing exhaust into the cab... And it wasn't fun... I was also reading stories about guys pulling out trailers with people inside the trailer still loading them... Do the terminals not have loading indicator lights on them? Thanks in advance for any info.
