How long will it take after the road test to get hired for fedex I pass the road test I'm still waiting having heard from them?

I just started with FedEx doing home delivery and now it’s like 97% home and 3% business. Slows you down just a bit getting signatures for businesses or having to stop and code the package 06/07. Luckily I’m with a contractor who pays $1.50 more per stop if it’s apartments or businesses. Overall a pretty decent job.

Nathan Piatt (11 months ago)
I did home delivery 1st and then I switched contractors and now i'm on ground and honestly I prefer ground over hd mostly because it pays more yeah the pick ups kinda suck but I've learned to live with it. Shout out from SA.

Also another question I was watching another FedEx viewer he said that drivers can't take any days off or they will get fired is this true
Andrea Young (1 year ago)

I’m a driver for ground in Manhattan the work loads we get is so crazy I have a team of 5 helpers and each helper is given An individual route the truck gets blown out everyday and sometimes a second truck has to come out just to drop off more deliveries I watch your videos a lot I get where you coming from about the truck not being loaded in proper order
jaysZWorLD Arellano (1 year ago)
Your lucky man you don’t get much stops I get like 400 stops 700 packages with a team of 5 helpers in the New York City
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
How does one get 400 stops? 🤔 the most I've done is 250ish and that was a lot

How much do fed ex drivers make per hour?
GreyyB (1 year ago)
you make per day not hr with ground, express depends on which state, mine in ally is $16. something but it aint great with express starting off, just better than how others around that income get by

My fuse was blown from my rear lights, thats why the camera doesnt turn on
BenIzJammin (1 year ago)
I've never done ground, but I agree HD is better. I like to go at my own pace. Right now, I'm in the middle of UPS orientation. It's so intimidating; they're so strict. We have our exam on Monday. 0=
Scott D (1 year ago)
Jaafar Kazim Yeah man I’ve heard plenty of stories about that place and brown boot camp. It’s not that that keeps me from ups is not seeing my kids enough or my wife. Maybe if they had more of those mythical 9-5 routes I’d be more interested. I hope CThompson forgives me for doing a plug for a different YouTuber but check out my friend Jerry’s place for ups specific vids. I really like this guy he needs the support if you want to give it. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNDQgNx0QxyQVzNicVoryQg
Jaafar Kazim (1 year ago)
I had to go to UPS Integrad that shit there was no joke
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)

Scott D (1 year ago)
BenIzJammin Good luck at brown boot camp
Johnny Moncivais (1 year ago)
Both are wack just making the contractor more money by working hard labor and not making the money for yourself.
Johnny Moncivais (1 year ago)

Johnny Moncivais (1 year ago)
Kool Got Game go to express. way better in the long run.
J Colon (1 year ago)
I avoided signatures at all cost. Unless it prompted me to get the signatures, my response to every stop was " You're all set ". Although I enjoy your videos, I no longer work for the company. I felt like a prisoner employed there and planed my escape asap!
Mr. E (1 year ago)
CThompsonTv i get full benefits. More money and guaranteed 40 hours if we can't be at work due to bad weather

Jaafar Kazim (1 year ago)
170 pkgs aint nothing lol how about 500 doggie. I swear i need to work for fed ex and not UPS. You are right Fed ex is the opposite of UPS . Dont work for UPS people.
Kevin Briner (1 year ago)
I jumped for bulk with Fed-Ex that was interesting delivering 750+ packages at one stop and it was before peak.
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
Bulk truck lol
Scott D (1 year ago)
I’ve been Hd for 3 years going on 4 now and I’d like a crack at Ground if it meant more $$$ and no more Saturday’s 😩 my route has a lot of businesses and there had been Saturdays I’ve come back with as many as 30 Undelivered boxes from apts and businesses.
Scott D (1 year ago)
CThompsonTv But the morning traffic is DEAD until I get near and around the Fargo west acres mall.
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
That's a bummer. I couldn't do the whole Saturday thing.

CThompsonTv (1 year ago)

Scott D (1 year ago)
Juan Salazar Wouldn’t that depend if the camera is hard wired in or is a wireless camera
bobby conrad (1 year ago)
The location I work at said they are doing away with home delivery and just ground by the end of February.
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
Interesting
bobby conrad (1 year ago)
Scott D ok thanks hopefully it works out better.
Scott D (1 year ago)
bobby conrad Yep I’m my bosses manager so he lets me know all sorts of stuff but the HD logo is being phased out as well as the VRP. That is the mapping software for HD. It’s been causing Ground a lot of headaches and I get annoyed with it every day too. I never follow the stop order it gives. I’d be out for twice as long if I did.
bobby conrad (1 year ago)
Scott D ok my contractor said that.
Scott D (1 year ago)
Gettin rid of VRP not home delivery entirely
Ethan Hofmann (1 year ago)
