    Trust me, you're with the best company.

    Just hang in there. I get frustrated myself, but then a couple months go by, and it's gotten a little better. Then a little better again. Rinse, repeat.

    Yes, was told when let go in January I could be called back after April. They had some bottom of the list guys laid off since Jan.

    Good for you. They seem to be needing feeders in my area around the holidays just like everywhere. I was a package driver 11 years ago. Worked in the warehouse but finally couldn’t hold on anymore. Looking back, I wish I would’ve stuck it out but I needed to work. I’d take a chance and try feeders but with a mortgage, 2 kids, and a wife at home, probably not a wise move.

    Text sent by HR said it was a permenant position. As long as I get 30 punches in 90 days I should be good.

    Wonder how long the summer seasonal peak lasts before the normal holiday peak.
