    SteveOUPS Me and my helper.

    If there is a posting in my building for a full time car wash job, and me and another driver both want the job. My hire date is before his, but he has more full- time seniority than me. Who gets the job????

    Company seniority will prevail for vacations....but not for full time job selection.. at least within our local.

    The other driver would get the bid.

    the full time guy , duhhhh. That means you had the opportunity to go full time before he did since he had less company time than you , Maybe its just me but I see and hear of this problem time after time at my hub . The most common excuse will be , I don't know how to drive stick ,lol . Listen , wether you get the job or not , I hope you do , but for all who read this thread . " IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO GO FULL-TIME AT U.P.S. and don't wont to get jumped by someone who was hired after you , but you will bytch about a junior employee who takes a fulltime job and then has more seniority than you and is now able to take the vacation you wanted or get the extra work you wanted , or to a specific job within both of you guys same classification = then take the fulltime job before the junior guy , because if you don't then guess what , your screwed as far as all that comes with someone having more seniority than you . Thanks , That is all , if you still don't understand , buy some flash cards and start studying as if you did not want to ride the shortbus .

    Even Art. 22.3 counts as FT seniority.

    I am one of those who has several 'shorter time' employees above me in seniority as I hesitated going full time to exhaust all other career and life options first. Sucks now, but it was the right thing to do at the time. So every time I get burned by it I just smile, sigh, and say 'yup.' No complaining about it here.

    Different locals, different states and different regions have different practices so it is important to know where a person is from to give an accurate response.

    This is true, however, can't you factor in your PT company years (example 20 PT years= 10 FT years) after your 1st year going FT to bump you up a bit on the senority list?

    Seems like a job outside of the classification (in this case driving) should go by company seniority. I'm just thinking logically of course and aknowledge that logic isn't always a factor at UPS.
