    Thinking from a city state of mind. Combining boards helps company not employees. Everybody doing 14hr shifts to help city and your damages will definitely go. Disgruntled road drivers on forklift is not a smart idea plus they way we move freight wouldn't work with open board driver. Would you reall want to put an Spartanburg driver on a couple stops peddle run in Chicago?

    Can't you hear it already from the road drivers...."sorry I don't have enough hours left to make my bid run tonight"

    Sounds tempting, Gainesville is easily within my commute range. But the idea of giving up working at OD on such a maybe at UPS terrifies me..

    Why are you thinking about leaving OD? I thought their jobs were the best thing since sliced bread?

    I'm not really, it's more blue skying than anything. At 36 I'm too old to go to UPS. Everyone knows the best pay is at UPS, even if they treat you like dog :shit:.

    36.....36......your not too old for anything. Ten years ago I made a major change at 47. At 36 your whole life is in front of you, now take a towel and dry behind your ears and go get the job of your dreams!

    I have too many family responsibilities to give up my benefits and pay at OD to work part-time and Lord knows it would take forever to get in as a full-time feeder driver. I have thought about taking a leave of absence over the holidays to get on as a holiday extra feeder and hope I get carried over. Knowing my luck I'd get carried over through peak and then laid off or pushed back to part-time.

    The only positions for a yard shifter in GA I saw were at the Atlanta hub and Forest Park, and both were listed as part-time seasonal.

    You do get treated like a dog at UPS. If you like to just come in to work, do your job, and be left alone, stay at OD because UPS micro-manages every move you make.
    The rumor is that they even monitor how many times you shake your shank after pissing. Hate to waste any time.

    I was told personally that running feeders for the Christmas rush has NO connection to a full time position in the future.
    Common sense tells me that if you did a good job for those few months, it would at least better your chances of getting on full time. But H.R. told me personally that there is no connection to a future position. PERIOD. Any future openings get taken by package drivers and CDL qualified part-timers first.
    Choose wisely.

    LoL! Thats pretty funny! We have ALOT of ex Yrc/Holland drivers at Ups......The one regret we all have in common is not going over sooner.....if you have a shot at getting in...do it.
    They do hire full time off the street but you gotta respond to the ad fast....last one I saw was up and back down the same day.

    I left 20mos ago to UPS pkg, off street hire, I never once have regretted the move. I always heard same things they treat you like dog crap or monitor every piss or stop, but since I've been there I've never experienced this, matter of fact it's been opposite. Constantly having free luncheons and bbqs for us to say thanks big coolers of bottled waters and fresh fruit on warm days, all they ask is you do your job and do it safely. Matter of fact now that I think about it holland treats there employees much worse than UPS.

    If they find enough issues they will fire your TM and hire a YRC Iron Fist. If your like your TM then you better protect him. Just say'n

    They already done that and they pissed off 5 Driver's and they Quit too , so work force is getting smaller & smaller , so bring on the Iron Fist , just make more people QUIT and pretty soon nobody will be left for the old yellow pig to screw with !! and funny thing is they can't get nobody to apply for TM or supervisor or Driver's , so one way to shut down a company is to fire or piss off the few employee's you have left !!

    Not in my area. They must get enough interest from the inside that want the feeder jobs, so they never hire Feeders off the street.
    I'm glad that they do in other areas though, if that's accurate.

    Side note: The UPS Freight Drivers that I've been in contact with recently have nothing good to say about how they are treated. They hate the micro-managing and constant push, push, push. But I suppose each terminal manager has their own way of doing business with the employees.......good and bad. So I'm sure the TM's are controlling and influencing that type of attitude.
