Qualifying Questions & Opinions

Hey guys, newbie here! I’ll cut straight to the point:

Was supposed to be hired June 18th (after completing integrad) as a FT driver. Date came, no calls, no returned calls, etc. Month later - after I got a job somewhere else - I was asked if I wanted to come to work. Respectfully declined due to new employment.

Kept in touch with HR and ORS and come September they hinted at ‘wanting a good driver like me. I hinted I was interested. They pulled me in the following week to start qualifying.

During qualification duration, they threw post office bags on my car, to where I couldn’t do anything until those were off - which couldn’t be off until they were open to accept: 11am. This went on for a few weeks until finally, they took care of it but it cost me qualifying time dearly. I was rolling mon-fri.

My last available week to qualify, I had 4 straight days. The Monday I returned, I was done very early. Supervisor wanted me to “hold off to find more work”. I complied, and I was sent to do pickups I’ve never done for another driver. Mentioned to my sup that I hope this wouldn’t affect my qualifying time for the day. He said if it did, he would “code it out”. Next day, see if I made scratch, and I was 30 min over. I brought it up and he said “those pickups were supposed to help you on time, so I can’t do anything”.

I was offered a 45 day extension. But, this extension rolls into mid Jan. Prior to accepting potential employment, I was weary about getting in near the season, but wanted to commit and make it happen. Now, considering you can’t qualify during peak, I’m a bit skeptical that they’re just going to let me go like a seasonal.

I questioned one sup, and he said he knew nothing about qualifying details. I questioned my other sup, and he gave me a route number. Questioned steward, he gave me a phone number.

Wanted to first get your guys’ opinion on here. I highly respect you guys. Been reading these forums for a while. Thanks!

They will probably just tell you what you want to hear in order to keep you for peak. That being said, if you do a good job I’m pretty sure they will keep you. Good luck.

Call the number the steward gave you. They are more likely to have answers that apply to your specific situation.
