    That doesn’t sound as bad, the way I heard it was it’s basically like having to quit and reapply.

    Still, who knows how long it would take for them to be hiring off the street at a location you’d like to move to.

    The driver that I know that did it was offered the job at the new location and then he quit. It was a definite job offer before he left the original location. He also was at a location where they had classification which means separate seniority lists for different jobs. Meaning he had gone to the bottom of the Feeder board when he left package to come to feeders and hadn’t been in feeders very long. His wife’s family was in Louisville and saw more opportunity for growth at the Louisville location than where he was.

    I don't know where you are but it isn't like that in my supplement. We had a building 150 miles away hiring like crazy and they wouldn't even consider letting any of us transfer, or quit and start over. One of our guys is in sleepers and lives in that city but had no luck.

    I know some of the west coast has the ability to transfer, other than that, it's almost impossible to change buildings.

    The driver came from 81st Indy to SdFas Louisville. It’s been 15 years or so and things do change.

    Nothing is impossible. “Side Deals” were very popular back in the day. Very little couldn’t be renegotiated if both parties came to an agreement. Our contract was opened on a regular basis. I can’t say for certain that it was the case, but who knows.

    A GA driver told me he transfered to SMAGA from a small center when it first opened. If I remember correctly, they let 1 or 2 from every building in GA transfer in, but they will end up with 500+ drivers

    We meet SDFAS drivers and a few told me they hired into worldport, got out of their probationary period, informed feeders they had a CDL and went to feeder school almost immediately.

    I'm in the Atlantic supplement and have never heard of anyone in my area making a move. I absolutely believe it can happen if someone is in the right place at the right time.
