    If your seasonal and working preload and actually bumped a seniority part-timer. Be prepared for zero hours shortly :)

    Yah tell me about it plus no holiday pay, or sick days.:sad-very:

    they suck but having more free time during the day is nice.:wink2:

    Yah except I think you said they make driver pay, I would love 8 hrs. on preload for that money.:happy-very:

    I love my job but if I wasn't planning on being at UPS for the long haul then I would not just work it for a pt job.

    ( the smilies are for you Upstate!:happy2:)

    Used to be the hardest job at UPS before PAS. Then you had to think.

    Worked preload for over a year, then started Sat driving, then drove for peak. Hope I don't go to 0 hours

    I beg to differ. I know a few preloaders that never showed any signs of thinking - both before and after the implementation of PAS.:no:
