Hello, im a seasonal driver helper thats been working for the past week in my local area. Well today i get a call from my coordinator to have me drive over an hour away to a new location and meet my driver. I told the coordinator i wouldnt be able to make it even if i wanted to because of the snow storm and due to not having enough time to get there. The coordinator said "ok" and just hung up. Am i fired or will they call me again tomorrow?

If they’re wanting you to drive over an hour for a few hour’s work it sounds like you’d be better off if they DID fire you.

you seasonal helpers are totally disposable to ups. work and get paid or dont and dont. come january your all fired en masse including the temp they hired to coordinate you. until then they need you. you'll work tomorrow

I couldnt believe it when they told me, you would think they would have people in that area to help, but i guess not. But yeah it definitely wasnt worth the drive.

No you're not fired. I'm sure many people told him no.

Yes.
UPS demands that people be reliable. You've proved you are not. Don't bother showing up anymore

I replaced you so you are good.
We had one of those preloaders that randomly puts packages on the wrong shelf and illegibly scribbles the wrong hin number.

I did that job. You try to marry up drivers and helpers because consistency reduces problems.

It already sounds like you were at the bottom of the list getting sent to a new driver. My guess is you're still there. If you want some hours, it's better to call the helper coordinator and lobby for a spot reasonably close. I wouldn't drive an hour ever, you're losing money on that deal.

If you don't want the hours, the coordinator will get to your name near the bottom, or not.

You're not really hired, anyways. Bring your driver coffee and donuts, if you are called back. It's the only chance for you to actually get hired permanently.
