Do you get any packages that you believe contain drugs that you think might be shady like from one of those online pharmacies that require signatures and you think the customer is an addict?

You don’t just ring the doorbell and leave. My most recent fedex express package was left in the middle of our driveway so that we almost ran it over while exiting the driveway. Also it was signed for by ‘me’ even though I never even saw the driver who ‘delivered it’ also he ignored delivery instructions of leaving it at the front porch. You should be our fedex driver.
Gustavus Bonner (1 month ago)
Wow if I work there can get numbers like that
Leah Hobbs (1 month ago)
I thought express was business and ground was residental
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Nope, express just does the over and 1-2 day shipping. Ground does 3-5 day

OUTTA TIME (2 months 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.

I have my cdl but I want something local and be home with my family every night. Hows the pay for what you do if I can know thank you and awsome video
Cody Drummer (1 month ago)
Check out fedex express... the pay is great and the benefits are awesome. Ground and home delivery offers neither of those. Also fedex express semi drivers make out pretty good as well and they stay localish. Still home every day

Is it true Fed Ex ground drivers only make about 40K a yr? I work for US foods. A Fed ex driver here in Fl told me that. Mabey he was pulling my leg
Cody Drummer (1 month ago)

Awesome video! How many breaks do you have a day? For how long? Thanks brother
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
It's basically your own pace, but most people try to get done early so they take limited breaks
Gerson Corona (3 months 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 (4 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?
Cody Drummer (1 month ago)
Long underwear and insulated socks! A delivery drivers best friend in cold temps
Scott D (11 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 (11 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

+Paul Whitear All business have to sign for packages. Some homes/apartments do if the shipper requires it. Most wine/alcohol has to be signed for
Tommy Staylor (1 year ago)
What if it needs to be signed but they don't answer the door
CThompsonTv (1 year 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.

Streetcar1664 (1 year ago)
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.

Ground got it easy. Try express, meeting fo, p1 commitment times, then p2s extended area, juggling pups. No getn done at 1:30 with 90+ stops 20+ pups
Cody Drummer (1 month ago)
I've worked for ground and currently at Express. They both have their challenges. Express is definitely more strict. But express at least pays us well and offers benefits. And my boss at ground was a total douchebag so that didn't help either lol

I’ve worked at FedEx ground in quality control. You know what we’ve done. I did help on the belts for sorting but damn I’ll never get on the bad side of you guys lol. Also I always give you fed and Ups crap about how the ac is working lol
trilllowkey (1 month ago)
Other way around for me, Drivers will never try to get on my bad side! I'd have that van so disorganized that the driver would have hell finding packages! Thankfully my drivers are cool people 😁 Edit: I'm a package handler btw ;)

Tyiesha Kidd (1 year 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 (1 year 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.
