    Okay, so finally got offered a job at the local ups. When we were talking last he asked me the whole why are you taking a part time job question so I told him that I want to eventually be full time and he said that's awesome and told me to go get my chauffer license so he can get me driving on the weekend.

    Now I agreed to it and got to thinking what will I be doing on the weekend? I don't think he meant driving a package car.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Most likely Saturday air driving. Saturday air drivers here usually get 4 hours, 8-12, on Saturday morning.

    Okay cool thanks. Another question is would that change the pay rate? Or would it just stay my normal pay grade

    Saturday air driving is around $13 an hour to start

    Okay cool.

    So if I'm not mistaken.

    Normal wage when I work the inside preload but I would be bumped on Saturday if I delivered air

    Should also be time and a half,if it is your 6th punch for the week.

    No...maybe it depends on your local...but because it's a different job classification than preload...Sat Air is usually not time and a half.

    Either way hopefully when he said that he was meaning in the near future. Thanks guy.

    Only way Saturday would be time and a half would be if you went over 40 hours for the week. I think top rate, which is after 2 years, is around $25 an hour.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Saturday air here is offered to any casuals who did not get their 40 hours first---if everyone worked they force from the bottom. They are paid their regular rate and since they have their 40 it is all time and a half.

    Saturday air is also time and a half after 8 hours. I think I got OT once or twice over 4 years of air driving.
