    Building seniority is seniority in the building.

    Company seniority is seniority in the company.

    Full time seniority is seniority full time.

    Part time seniority is seniority part time.

    Company Seniority carries with you through out your career at UPS and basically only determine number of vacation weeks you get.. Building Seniority doesn't really mean anything. PT seniority date and a FT seniority are the only things that matter.
    Someone might have more company seniority than you and you may have more FT seniority than that person. You having more FT seniority means if you both bid a FT job you get it before them and you pick vacation before them even though they may have more vacation weeks than you.

    Company senority: effects your benefits, vacations, pay rate, retirement.
    Building senority: effects your ability to override other co-workers when picking routes, taking time off, etc.

    Unless you're in a local that allows full-time transfers (or multibuilding local bids) in which full-time seniority would prevail.
