Is $600/wk too low for a city with a population of 30,000?
Logan R (4 months ago)
Really depends where you are at and cost of living there also. Here in Ohio my rent for a house is only $425 and I pay half of that. Bit i agree $500 is probably way too low unless you're finished by like 1pm every day
Charly Brown (4 months ago)
I work 4 days 10 hour shifts, making 1,100 and when we hit bonuses they add an extra 400$

Im pretty lucky to have a great contractor here in houston tx. 1.40 per stop average about 140 stops a day. Adds up to about 1000 a week working 7-4

CThompsonTv Do you know if FedEx Drivers get overtime?
CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
I have no idea to be honest
Patrick (5 months ago)
I'm a package handler (though I must be better than who load your van because drivers actually request me to work on their set) and was approached by a contractor who wants me to drive for them for $650 a week HD. It seems a little low but it's a lot better than getting $12 an hour loading.
Patrick (5 months ago)
Have you heard of a contractor paying a small base (25-30) and then paying per stop? Is that common?
CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
Yeah, it's a start at least

Sooo can I do this with a class C CDL?

eric jones (10 months ago)
All depends on cost of living, if u deliver in Cali u will make upwards of 1500 gross vs okc will bring 700 or 800 gross (weekly)
Noe Ruiz (10 months ago)
Obviously after 8hrs you get time and half. Question. Does Fedex care if you do OT? Is it restricted Or encouraged?
Kevin Briner (11 months ago)
Did that ever go hourly at Fed-Ex or are they still dangling the carrot.
theforce iscalling (7 months ago)
express you get hourly. ground its up to the contractor. some pay hourly, some pay per stop, some pay per day.
CThompsonTv (11 months ago)
Dangling the carrot lol
jasmine ervin (11 months ago)
I'm trying to get into fedex there are lots of opportunities where I live and I watched ur video on pay rates for routes how do I get and accept the offers for the weeks Work? Can u specify how your schedule is obtained or how you controll it.Thanks
Ryan Sorrell (1 year ago)
I get paid $1200 A week and only work 10 hour days. However I'm a freight FedEx driver not ground or express. Plus I only have about 15-20 stops a day. You get paid a lot more if you have a CDL and drive the big 18 wheelers. If I wanted to I could do my route which takes me 8-10 hours and then work the dock for 2 hours and I would make about $1500 A week. My hourly rate is $21/hour and anything over 8hours a day is over time which gives me a little over $30 an hour. As a truck driver we are only allowed 70 hours a week. Now if you are road driver for FedEx you will make about $300-$400 A day and you work however long it takes you to make the trip for example my warehouse is located in Schertz Texas and a road driver will drive to Dallas and back. The whole trip takes about 9 hours driving and about an hour of yard time plus your 30 min break. That one pays about $350. Plus if you want you can work the dock too for extra money as long as you don't go over 14 hours of on duty time. We have drivers who make about $120,000 A year doing this. The ground guys and express guys work way too hard for too little of pay.

$500 Is A Route With Atleast 60-80 Stops , Plus If You Do Apartments And Buisnesses I Won’t Do It . If It Was Just Houses With 60-80 I Say It’s Good .
John Barker (1 year ago)
When you mention the pay rate of 700; are you referring to after tax or before it?
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
+John Barker before, but that's when someone is starting out

Tray Maxie (1 year ago)
Yeah $500 is super low I work at FedEx as well and I got $500 just to ride and help and train I get up to $950 to run my route if I hit all the bonuses and if I don't I get $800 flat rate
Erick Castillo (1 year ago)
I was getting about 560-580 a week. Full time. 10 hours a day. And they would still call me to do other stops/pickups for other contractors... so I quit.
Jonathan Ramos (3 months ago)
same here in Alberta, $500 - $700 before tax, 7-8 hrs shift, doing apartment and businesses area, completely not so good and they will ask you to do some pick ups too and need to come back to the station before 4:40 pm after having 40-50 stops.
CThompsonTv (1 year ago)
+Erick Castillo wow. That's an insult dude.
Megan Reeder (1 year ago)
They promised me a raise at 30 days and a raise at 90 days and then yearly.. Now I feel played. I'm only making $550. :(

I was working for Amazon Delivery service. I worked 4 10 hour days 160 to 200 stops in 10 hours and i only brought home $502 after taxes.
Shinryu101 (1 year ago)
Megan Reeder what location you at? Where I'm potentially going to work says $15hr for 30days then up to $18.75 after. Paid every 2weeks with 401k + benefits
Megan Reeder (1 year ago)
But I still feel like I should be making more. Regular warehouse jobs are paying 15/hr. I'm only making 13.75
Megan Reeder (1 year ago)
alan4657 it's before OT.. we are hourly but never get paid for less than 40
alan4657 (1 year ago)
Megan Reeder is that 550 including ot? if yes, find another company. thats nuts. unless in your local economy that $550 a week is good. then I would see what else is out there. are you hourly or salary? if salary then that's doubly dumb. Lol if your good, you should be paid for that. this isn't a easy job. IMHO... of course. I don't know your personal situation.
chad mancini (1 year ago)
i like your vids. i to work for fedex out here in seattle. any tips on getting to know your route better. i am averaging about 15 deliveries an hour. I am still new and only my 4th day by myself. i feel flat on my face today i had 90 deliveries and did half of it before i had to call for help. my boss gave me a van and basically put 100 plus packages in there unorganized. i am having to spend like 5-10 per stop digging around in the van trying to find my package. there is no shelves in there. my actual truck has not arrived yet and vans are all thats available for right now. Our peak season is getting closer and i want to be prepared. i think maybe a blown up map of my area will probably be helpful. i mean i know my area pretty good but still struggle with finding addresses and streets. oh and 500 dollars for a route nope not me i make way more than that per week. you know just as well as i do some days are bad real bad no way i am doing a route for 500 bucks.
Kevin Briner (11 months ago)
chad mancini I had the same issue.
John Barker (1 year ago)
When I worked ground my truck was a nightmare to find things. the best solution is to arrive like an hour early and sort it out. I also have a sharpie where I put the sequence number on the sides of the box to find it easier when im out doing my route. A giant "485" or whatever helps alot when your trying to find stuff :p. If your home delivery when I switched too recently generally you come in earlier. To give an example of what I do is this. If I have a total of like 650 in my squence numbers I will put anything 400 and above on my truck scanned. All other numbers I oraganize into piles outside of the truck itself. I then organize what is in my truck and then the stuff outside. Thats the easiest way I personally found to do it.
alan4657 (1 year ago)
chad mancini show up early and organize your truck. know where your stops roughly are before you leave. When you get your new truck, take the time to re-vision the truck to how you want to run your route. If you have a half decent loader then half of the organization will be done for you. Sequence your route so you can just run off the scanner most of the time. I would have the 2k shelf be most of my first stops. then I would knock out one area at a time. I devided my route into 6 or 7 sections. once I was done with the 2k shelf I would sometimes move the packages down from the next section down to the 2k shelf. that way my next stop was usually right next to the door(there are exceptions of course). hopefully that made sense. but for the love of Pete, be safe and don't speed. if you run, be safe and look a head and know what your about to step on/in. it gets really dark really soon here in Seattle and it's the time for constant drizzle/downpours. make sure your truck is safe. make sure the wipers are good, lights work, tires aren't bald. you can be the fastest at delivery, but one mistake can be a life changer. Be careful of hills and wet roads here. as your truck gets lighter going on in the day your back wheels in these trucks can lock up and push you down hill further then planed.
Erick Castillo (1 year ago)
Run, i did that all the time. also, show up earlier to work and organize your truck from the first stops to last. it helps. hopefully you get your truck by peak or else is going to suck!
Scott D (1 year ago)
You know the thing that actually slows me down the most is these slow POS scanners we have. They used to work so fast three years ago when I first started now I’m stuck just waiting in my truck for it to process a stop when back in the day I would’ve already been at someone’s door by the time the info loads up on the damn thing. 😤 if Fedex wants to make an assload of moolah off me then give me a faster scanner that can keep up with me PUH-LEEZ!!
alan4657 (1 year ago)
I was making $850 a week 110+/- stops a day, 10 hour minimum days. just fyi.

Brad Boisvert (7 months ago)
Truth Seeker 92 is that take home pay after taxes because I'm a UPS delivery driver and yeah I can gross $2100 a week but take home in between $1200-1400 and obviously make $2000 plus during peak due to all that O.T. Feeders is for sure my goal to get to at UPS
Truth Seeker (8 months ago)
At UPS the delivery drivers make 2k plus a week. I'm a feeder driver for UPS and an average full timer that works feeders makes $3000 plus a week.
Yared Chanyalew (9 months ago)
They're paying me $1.25 per stop. I had a choice to work for another contractor for a daily flat fee of 150$. Which one u think better? Per stop pay or salary
Dear Vrenezi (9 months ago)
alan4657 I work FedEx home deliver. About 80 stops a day and 200 packages. Home by 3-4 everyday. Though I work saturdays. But only till about 1. Make 900 a week and still have a life after work. I was a ups driver and FedEx is much better.

CThompsonTv hey I'm 18 years old and I work at Walmart but that's not enough. I'm a full-time college student and I work at Walmart full time. I woukd like to work with FedEx express however I've been told not to do ground but to do HD but whenever I try to apply online it doesn't show up. I know people do it and it's the holidays so I know their hiring. Any advice on how I should go about the application process?
