When I first started here a while back everyone told me "oh.. you'll be driving in a year". Obviously that is not the case nor am I really upset about it. However, the longer Ivd been here the more unattainable it seemed. Not just because you have to work maybe 7+ years (at my hub at least) to get there, but even then they can have you drive for seven months of the year and then send you right back to the hub at the drop of a hat. This makes things a little difficult, I can handle a long wait because it's worth it. But you have to make ends meet in the mean time and it's a bit difficult to get a full time job while waiting for a driving bid, only to quit that job to drive for less than a year and get sent back to part time work. My hub is in NC, so I'm not sure if Right to Work has anything to do with this, but it's really asking alot of someone to quit their full time day job with no guarantee that they will remain in the driving position for even a year. Any thoughts on this or suggestions? Also, I'm interested to hear what everyone's take on the current bid freeze is, this may be geographical, but in four years I've never seen one single fellow part timer go driving an not have to come back to the hub eventually.
