Hello everyone. I am a new member and was wondering if I could ask for some help and/or advice. Here is my story, which has been like a rollercoaster and I am not sure what has happened or if I am missing something. Last year I was hired as a seasonal helper. I worked every day during the holiday season, and I was told by management that I did a good job. Once the holiday season was over, I went back to working what I did before, and that was that. Earlier this year I was called in for an interview for a full time driving position; I was asked while helping during the holidays, if I was interested in it, and was told about the 6-1 rule. I thought I did well during my interview and was told that it came down to myself and another person, who has worked for UPS in the past. I got a call a week or so later and was told, although it was a very close call, they ended up going with the other person. I understood, since he has worked for UPS before. I was told not to give up, because I have no idea how close I came to being hired. I thought, "yeah, right." So, here is where things get a bit interesting/confusing to me. A couple weeks after receiving the call about not being hired, I received another call and was offered a part-time pre-loader position, but was also told to think about it and talk it over with my spouse. I called back couple of days later at which point I was told, that actually the hub manager wants me to drive instead, so I just need to sit tight for a little longer. No problem, I thought. I kept checking in every couple of weeks, or they kept keeping me up to date. Things got to the point, where I was told the next driving position (seasonal or otherwise) is mine and that considering my background they have high expectations of me. I was given a specific date at the end of May when I can be expected to be hired. I was walking on cloud nine, working for UPS would be a dream come true and I would bend-over-backwards and work/do whatever I need to, just to have the chance. So, all seemed to go well until last week I made my usual "catch-up" call and was told that all jobs have been bid out, there is nothing for me not even pre-load, they are not sure what to tell me, they will try to figure something out, blah, blah, blah. I felt like a complete fool for believing that things could go so smoothly. They know how eager and willing I am to work for UPS. Is hard work-ethics, enthusiasm and dedication not enough anymore? I want to go in and tell the manager just get rid of my online application (which still shows as active.) I am confused. I know UPS has rules to follow, I understand the issues about seniority. I only wish they were straight forward with me, so I wouldn't keep my hopes up that I can one day work for this company. Any advice would be nice, but please spare me of the nasty sarcastic ones, such as "what is wrong with you for wanting to work for UPS?" etc. Thank you.
