Hello folks, I'm currently a driver for the competition that isn't affiliated with the government or the color yellow. Let's just call them company X. I've been part time at X for 2 years now. (If you call working up to 15 hours a day without a break "part time") Just recently I was told I was going to be displaced and losing my morning route after peak. I had an interview for Brown this morning about seasonal driver helper. And while I'm going to be taking a huge cut in pay, hours and benefits. I can help but think the grass is greener on the other side. I'm also hoping to get my foot in the door as I've dreamed of being a UPS driver since I was zygote and the scoundrel my mamma thought might have been my daddy was a UPS driver. The problems I have with my current gig? I've worked 6 days a week for the past two years and my manager wouldn't even pull me aside to let me know ahead of time that they were putting my route of for bid and combining it with something else to make a full time position. He sent me a message on the DADS unit basically saying, "I thought I should let you know that your route is going up for bid tomorrow." They call this being displaced. I've talked to him and he wants me to hang in there, but I can't help but to think it sounds like a ploy for them to load me up a rental van with 200 stops a day for the next six weeks to help them get through peak. So what are the chances I can get more than a seasonal position out of this? The HR rep says my experience for the past couple of years is a big plus. Does the fact that I can process international documents/packages, dangerous goods or run the counter earn me any brownie points so to speak? I just want to hear opinions for better or worse from the people that make this company tick!
