    According to UPSjobs, these aren't seasonal and are straight full time driving jobs in Maumee and Cleveland. I'm currently with UPS Freight driving doubles and have been there for 8 years, but I see the subcontracting getting worse and the writing is on the wall as they would love to replace us.

    Are these the same as feeder drivers?

    Would I be hired at the same rate under the previous contract or fall under the new two tier system?

    Any idea on the expected hours?

    Feeder drivers don't have a 2 tier wage. You would have to go through progression, though.

    You'll have to go through the 4 year progression. I'm in Ohio not cleveland/Middleburg but I go there often but I can't speak to how busy they are but we're busy as :censored2: south of there

    @BigUnionGuy Just because you aren't seeing greivances doesn't mean abuse of contractors isn't happening. Can you tell this poster what they should be filing grievances on to see ye best results?

    I would think Toledo would be a good place to take a shot if you're coming in off the street. That building runs a lot of volume.

    Good luck!

    I think we’re going to see more and more full time hiring off the street. I’m seeing more and more places in desperate need of feeders and package guys just aren’t interested anymore.

    My hub has been running feeder orientation for seasonals every Monday since May! They need to rework the system though. Even though the odds of going full time are good, they really put the screw to the on call guys and the training just isn’t up to par. I’d say 2 out of 10 stay past a month.

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    Wish it was like that here. Three year wait list.

    Are you claiming the contract is ok in package and ok in feeders? But acknowledging that it's sucks else where?

    All I'm saying is, once you open that door, how do you stop it? It sucks for package. Lets stop it in its tracks.
