Am i the only person that doesnt think this is right? I went to orientation for driver helper on the 15th and I was told that I would be able to start and meet up with a driver right after my preload shift and work as a driver helper. Then the coordinator called me yesterday asking if i could meet her on monday. I told her that i had planned to start my driver's helper job right after my normal shift. She said that this year they were just going to have driver helper's meet their drivers somewhere on their route and then start working from that point, after getting on the truck with them. This is wrong and stupid on so many levels. For 1. there are places a route could be that arent exactly safe to leave your vehicle, 2. not to be mean i am not getting paid to find a driver elsewhere when i can just get on the truck after my shift at the hub. You want people to be driver helper's but you are expecting them to go elsewhere at the price of gas and meet up with drivers when all they should have to do is meet there driver's at the trucks at the hub. It's making stuff far more complicated then it has to be. Not to mention, they are not endorsing us for gas the ground hub i work at is in west columbia, south carolina. Say my driver's route is in sumter. I am so sorry i am not going to drive a hour away from west columbia if not more depending on traffic to get there. I really want this job, and need the money. Why are they expecting us to do this as i said its stupid on so many levels. There are even still some teens that dont have that reliable of transportation. My transportation is my mom because she works over at the air ramp, that is 5 minutes from the ground hub. So i just ride in with her, i also am saving up to get a car. And because driving was never a big deal to me I am just in the beginning process of getting my liscense. Even if i did have a liscense at the price of gas and the hassle who in the hell would do this and go along with it anyways?? THIS IS BULL.
