    So I'm a seasonal and I'm going to get chosen as a full-time driver since they are hiring a bunch of full timers after this season.

    My question is, will my 30 days start when they call me back or will my seasonal working days count toward it.

    Thanks!

    Your packet won’t start until they call you back and offer you the job. Day 1 will be the first day after they offer you the position. Assuming you’ve already been to drivers school. If you haven’t then you will have to go to school and pass before you can be eligible to drive.

    All depends on how long you are laid off before they call you back. If there is no layoff and you are just made permanent then you dont have to do 30 again. Your seniority date will be first day with the company.

  5. As with everything else here, depends where you are. In some areas that is absolutely not wrong

    How do you already know you are going to be chosen to come back?

    If your really good they will hire you straight into management. That’s where all the best drivers go. Just ask your supervisor, he will confirm.

    No, thank you for being part of the success story this Peak season. You have a bright future with UPS.

    Is there a region in which seasonal drivers can gain seniority? I know they can't in the Western Region. Of course the company could choose to qualify a driver any time during their 30 days, but there's no language that I'm aware of that controls that.

    I do agree that if you are hired permanently after peak, and you do gain seniority, your seniority date should be the first day you worked as a seasonal employee.

    So does anyone know anything about seasonal drivers running out of their own vehicles?

    They say they're gonna choose you to go full time after season....they probably tell that to all the seasonals in your building to get you guys to run and gun harder in your rentals that dont have telematics.....

    Actually it’s a former driver of mine talking about it. I’ve never known UPS to use these personal vehicles around here. Is it fairly widespread?

    My building runs 2 centers, roughly 190-230 drivers.

    We have 3 PVDS. My division manager told me he had to train one on Thursday and groaned so im guessing they are a pain in the ass/not exactly management's favorite thing.

    Ive never even seen a PVD driver

    I thought it sounded odd

    40 hrs a week. $30/hr. $.58 per mile.

    Not at UPS- the "elected leaders" would never allow that to happen.
