A few details... I work preload with barely 1 year seniority(lowest rank in hub) I would eventually like to go FT but not now. Normal FT rollover time is 8 to 9 years here. We have several PTs who want no part of package car. Our hub is in need of sat. air drivers. A driver suggested that I put in for sat. and or cover driver. He claimed, if I "qualified"(whatever that means) now, that I would jump ahead of PTs with more seniority who haven't qualified. Is this true? I thought FT consideration was strictly by seniority or hire date? Meaning, if I ran sat. air or cover, would I be up for FT before a PT with more seniority who just worked preload? I'm also designated responder but I doubt that has anything to do with it.
