Curious on how pay works. Paid for the day no matter how quick or long they are? Or is however long your drive is?

OUTTA TIME (18 days ago)
FedEx totally screwed the pooch on my delivery today and said they showed at 6:12 pm, but that didn't happen or there would be tracks in my dirt drive. My neighbor was outside during this time and he didn't see the invisible truck, either. Read the comments on the Hewitt distribution center, and they're not good. A whole day wasted in the incompetence of a corporation that is OK with lying to their customers. thumbs down Fed Ex.

It's basically your own pace, but most people try to get done early so they take limited breaks
Gerson Corona (1 month ago)
Man, 72 stops for Ground is beautiful. I used to work for Ground and there would be days where I would have up to 200 stops because I did 8 towns. I switched over to HD but I still get hit with 200 stops on the daily ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kay Jay (2 months ago)
If you live in apartments you can request the package be left at the main office. I would leave a note at the door, and take computers and televisions to the front office. Otherwise I would just drop, knock, and run.

Here in my town in Ohio the FedEx driver NEVER knocks. The bad thing being we are about 10-feet off the street and anyone can pick up the packages.

How does a fed ex driver cope with the winter elements?
Scott D (9 months ago)
Haha I deliver in Fargo, ND and come on up you’ll find a way or another. Is this a serious question? I can give tips if you need them. But yes, so long as packages come into then station I go out and deliver even when it’s way subzero temps with windchills -50 or colder. You stay warm so long as you keep moving. If you need a break go grab a snack and hot coffee somewhere and sit down indoors to warm up. Leave the engine running if it’s diesel.
CThompsonTv (10 months ago)
+Hanz Choloburger well, I live in Texas so the winter isn't all that bad. Must be miserable for others who get snow

Tommy Staylor (10 months ago)
What if it needs to be signed but they don't answer the door
CThompsonTv (10 months ago)
+Tommy Staylor We bring it back with us. They get three attempts. If they aren't there the 3rd time they'll have to come pick it up at the terminal.

Now if I was behind the wheel of that step van, I would have J.S. Bach playing along. I am a huge fan of classical music. Classical music is clean as a whistle. At the time when much of it was written, entertainment had to be nice and clean. Back then, there was no sex stuff in any of the songs. And classical music has harmony and it is relaxing. When it comes to Christmas time, you hear a lot more of classical music.

Tyiesha Kidd (10 months ago)
I'm a AO and daughter of Ground contractor who owns 5 routes in Louisiana. Im doing 100 stops 300 packages+ and pickup 200+. Also it's supplement from someone else doing 160 stops 400+ and 20 pickups. This is like damn near 300 stops 700 packages and bringing in 400 pickups all one route. It's a killer. But pay is straight.

Ever been attacked by a dog?
Scott D (11 months ago)
This is the reason why I do not go past a gate when someone has a privacy fence around their house. I almost did one time and then a dog shot out from the garage wanting to eat my face off. And another time I opened a gate and a dog shot out the front door like a torpedo. Pretty sure I muttered a "fuck no" that could've been heard from six feet away as I shut the gate.

Im a swing driver for express and I've noticed that ground and UPS usually always have more pick ups then express. The only big difference between express and ground is that we have more time limits. Since we have priority over night and standard services. Good vlog tho
Scott D (11 months ago)
I think Ground has more volume overall to deliver too.

Hey, I saw a job posting for a FedEx contractor driver position. Do you work directly for Fedex or for a contractor? Have you heard good or bad things about contractors? I've delivered Brownberry Bread to grocery stores for 2 years, so I wonder if that background would help me get a job for FedEx. A few questions: 1) Do you load your truck in the morning? 2) Whats the hardest thing to learn when you first get the job?
Keith Richards Liver (1 year ago)
Worked for Fed Ex ground years ago. It would have been cool if I had been paid hourly instead of a set amount each week. Most days would end up lasting eleven to twelve hours daily. Also the other guy that was close to my area would always dump half with stops on me.
domiven7 (1 year ago)

shut up clown! u probably don't even have a job I've never seen a union guy work..so no way ups rolls out with 650 boxes
How to basic (1 year ago)
A lot of people use USPS over ups because its faster and cheaper but the thing is priority is mail can only be guaranteed if processed by 10am Wednesday morning others wise it could be delayed for the second afternoon USPS transfer which priority has two USPS transfer per day and standard has 1 and their is only one transfer on Saturday and the deliver truck dose one trip a day of what ever comes in by noon but Saturday is mostly low priority that didn't fit on the truck so if ordered Thursday afternoon there is a good Chance idem not received until Monday. The other factor is if you don't order priority a week before Halloween your shit is likely to be late due to so many people shipping junk which also takes longer because the mail man has to find out whose stuff to steal based on how much profit he can make and who ordered it .
