I get back to the terminal 6 o’clock get home about seven because I do a bulk route but I still have to unload for some reason. They actually got good about that and I have a spot every now and then if it’s not empty one of the spare spot where they unload for me but still 6:45 to 7 usually when I get to my door. I’m actually home today luckily but I’m looking for another job myself.

You have to unload your truck?! I've never heard of that

I worked for HD and now I’m with express. Express is a great job with great benefits and tons of room for growth and higher pay scale. They take care of all the couriers and you work as a team. Home Delivery was literally the worst job I’ve ever had. At express you actually get rewarded for long days and hard work. Any time worked after 8 hrs you get paid O.T and before starting at Express as a courier you get extensive paid training

FedEx is terrible. Doesn't pay well, route owners are terrible business people. UPS is the only way to go. Anything over 8 hours is OT. After 4 years if you work a ten hour day your making over $400 a day!

Hey can we get a 4th of July special Vlog from you. Not you working but you had a barbeque partying LOL meeting your friends and seeing what they have to say about C Thompson

Did you have to pre loader or what ever it’s called at fed ex before you were able to get a driving job

I can understand your situation. I was a full-time Cargo Handler at FedEx Express for almost 3 years, until I recently moved up to a Courier position. Being a Courier isn't bad in any way. I can understand why people enjoy this profession (long hours, decent pay, working independently, etc..), but I really miss being a Cargo Handler even if it's a lower position. I enjoyed working with the people, working fast pace and the schedule. Since I recently became a Courier though, I have to wait 6 months before I can apply to a different position within FedEx. I definitely plan to. But yeah I actually stumbled upon your channel because I hated my first week as a Courier at FedEx, and was hoping that there was a video/channel that could help me. It so happened to be you. Thank you for making these informative videos and I wish nothing but the best for your future :)

Not if you don't get paid by the hour

Chris, it is funny how things can change. Looks like one route closes and another opens. I have an opportunity to go back to FedEx doing a different route. Going to give it a try and see if things change for the better.

I love my route. I don't make the most money on my route compared to my coworkers by any means. But I do anywhere from 100-150 stops a day. But I'm always done around 12-2. Last week I worked 28 hours.
Robin L&L (3 months ago)
Alpha Since '95 you got good route. Not everyone gets that! And good luck to you if someone calls off's from work!

Leave all together and come to Ups
Scott D (4 months ago)
Brad Boisvert ya know what? You fuckin rock, that’s what! Have a good one ✌️
Brad Boisvert (4 months ago)
Scott D just worry about you go after what you want I did and got the job
Scott D (4 months ago)
Brad Boisvert thanks man I appreciate the responses! I need all the luck I can get cuz the old timer package handlers will hate me starting st a higher pay and the union guys may think I’m trying to be a scab I gotta be careful. It just happens to time out this year is probably my best chance. Tried last year but it didn’t time out well.
Brad Boisvert (4 months ago)
Scott D nice!👍Good luck man
Scott D (4 months ago)
Brad Boisvert hopefully they won’t dick around. My local station (ups) seems pretty nice. I walked in there last year to talk to hr guy he was very nice to me(prob cuz he wanted me to come on as a seasonal driver). All I have to do is come in on my day off to ask him if he still has my application file from last year.

Oh, I'm aware
Big Boss (4 months ago)
Good for you man. Only you know what's good for YOU! No one else cares. You switch routes or contractors til you find a good and comfortable place that works best. Hope you do HD, bro. No pickups or any of that rush bullshit. You just deliver.
Kire Create (4 months ago)
Exact reason why I switched the first time and it’s the exact same reason I’m probably gonna switch again lmao

CThompsonTv (4 months ago)
It's like that and people can get worn out on a route. Especially when you can't make the same or even more money on a different and get off earlier
Mr Hill (4 months ago)

Hey
RTM Dustin (4 months ago)
Scott D yeah I heard you HD guys got loaders now :p It’s funny, the Fedex station manager called me earlier today asking if I would do package handler. And congrats, I’d be a nervous wreck when my little one starts school.
Scott D (4 months ago)
RTM Dustin pretty good. My older kid starts kindergarten this fall I’m pumped for her. Still doing the FedEx Hd grind and I have a loader now and he’s a good loader too. I get to sleep in an extra hour or so in the morning sooo nice.
