My seasonal package handling job is permanent. Only 10 – 15 hours a week after the end of the year, but the biggest week of the peak season has been just over 20. It’s a foot further in the door with a good company that appreciates me, and continues to be a basis around which other things can be worked. As well as being expendable if and when that is needed.
Posting this before going to bed, following an extremely short shift that was not only light, but also had two trailers not in yet and plenty of people available to kill time waiting for them, then knock them out in a hurry.
