Full time driver 12 years I make 25 years when I turn 46 years old so it’s a big advantage for me oh and I’m located in NYC way to much over time 60 hrs

If you have used both FedEx and UPS you know UPS is the winner, hands down. FedEx drivers are contractors not employees. On many occasions these drivers have left packages outside my business worth THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS with foot traffic and cars going by. Not even a delivery notice! They once left a $2,000 item in the back of a pickup outside my business without knowing who owned that pickup!!!!!! My complaints have fallen on deaf ears at FedEx. They have no intentions of reprimanding their drivers instead they prefer to pay a claim. Obviously, they care more about their drivers than their customers. FedEx SUCKS!!! No wonder they have comments turned off on their channel.

Philippians 4:19 that's a great verse .also ups pays better but I did fedex for 8 years I would do multiple routes a week and I was lucky enough to make 1000 to 1200 every week I did have to work 5 days a week and 6 during peak season and it did cut into family time some but probably not as much as ups so I feel your pain.

BTW UPS does hire drivers from off the street when I started with UPS back in 1999 I was hired as a driver from straight off the street never work inside the Hub sometimes UPS hire straight up drivers only you just have to look online and see when they aren't looking for drivers this time of the year season though they will hire you as a driver straight off the street

UPS drivers do make average $96,000 a year but FedEx drivers I don't think they make 43,000 I think they make more than that for their class A CDL drivers they're up there at least 70,000

HA! UPS drivers have no life... Became an OTR truck driver for a few years and then get back to me about "no life". In your bed every night, dinner with your family, and your own damn shower...that IS a life...that's a life of a responsible ADULT working HARD for their family. Better yet join the military and get deployed overseas... No home life...LMAO funny one there!

Having a life balance is important to me. I would hate to get home exhausted just to get ready for bed and repeat the same process again. A day wasted just making money. These companies should consider having 10 hour shifts 4 days work and 3 days off. I really think employees will work harder knowing they have 3 days off.

I left FedEx and now I been a driver for 4 years as a ups driver and I love it and your wrong I do get alot of family time. But FedEx is good to start and get experience then that's when you go to the winning team ups. I love it never leaving I get to provide for my family and vacation time is great cause now I can afford to go to Hawaii without worrying how much money I can spend I love it..
carson 310 (1 month ago)
@Alex Kerr yeah you going to have to put in atleast 15 to 20 years as a driver to get your own route. Because anyone starting out and who been their the past 5 years all are cut driver's so you got to do multiple routes in a week.
Alex Kerr (1 month ago)
To also add... the more years you put in UPS... the better routes you also may get due to your seniority.

i work for ups at santa barbara CA and this center gets not support from the company we have been running on 10 people for months because the company put us on a hiring freeze after we have lost half our staff we need support
Yogi B (5 months ago)
This isnt necessarily true. Ive been with fedex for a little under a year but i make about 1300 a week. Also there is a difference between working for fedex express and FedEx ground. Fedex ground is dealing with contractors. Where fedex express is directly dealing with FedEx
Yogi B (5 months ago)
And when you work for a contractor your pay is negotiable, business routes are bulkier stops but you get a set amount every week no matter how many stops or packages you deliver. Home delivery gets paid PER STOP not by the hour, if you want to get more packages and deliver them you can be out there all night but at the same time no matter who you work for, you can only drive but so many hours in accordance to DOT ( department of transportation) atleast in the state of Maryland. And l can be wrong, but last I checked the Express drivers start at $15 here.
Boogs114 (5 months ago)
Maynard, u forgot something: there are multiple entities: FedEx Ground, FedEx Express & FedEx Freight, all have different pay/workload... AND, in NYC (all 5 boroughs), UPS Does hire drivers from outside. I was offered 2 driving jobs with UPS this summer, but i turned them down (various reasons).

As fedex driver this bullshit FedEx driver dose not get shit we work for contractors not fedex so they can give what ever they want which mean they don’t have to pay for medical etc. if I could I would go to ups in a heart beat least then I would get payed by the hour lol.

Andrea Laughlin (7 months ago)
Ups pays package handlers min wage in CA that is $12 an hour they actually post $11.50 plus u pay union dues. FedEx starts at $14.50 plus shift differential, and pay increases after 30 and 90 days. They also offer lots of room for advancement. My friend's daughter started as a package handler and I'd now making almost $17 an hour after 6 months moving to different area of the warehouse. My brother worked for Ups not much if any pay increase after 3 years. I see all the jobs paying well over $20 an hour through Fedex. Ups nada.
Maynard's View (7 months ago)
If you stay as a package handler at ups you must put in the years before seeing the pay go up there is no top out pay as a package handler, And honestly drivers is where its at you can make 96k after 4yrs at ups
lombardo141 (7 months ago)
UPS it is. 👀
Jose Camacho (7 months ago)
I currently work at Fed Ex as s package handler making 13.75 an hour. Fed Ex allows me to work extra hours a week as opposed to the usual 20 hours. So, I average around 36 hours a week. I used to work at UPS as a pre-loader, I gotta say the pay was laughable, only making 12 an hour, terrible.. I worked more for less pay. I highly recommend anyone to work for Fed Ex, there's tons of job openings available at the hub as well

Aulrone (8 months ago)
43k a year? Dude that's like 3500 a month or like 750 a week. That's what an entry FedEx driver makes. After a year or so you make about 4000 minimum up to 4800 if you're not a VC. That's 48k to 55k a year. As a sub VC you can expect 65k and about 80k as a VC. Time? Depends on luck and your route. As a FedEx driver I work 8am to 6pm an average if I run my ass. UPS cant be much worse.
Donald J. Trump (8 months ago)
Bro I been at fedex for only 4 years and cleared 50k. I’m not even topped out yet. There’s couriers that make over 90k also and a very few that clear 100k. You got that part wrong. And just something people might not know, we at fedex show up to work earlier than ups and have to load our freight then go deliver it. Ups shows up around 9am and their trucks already have been loaded. And no one I know at fedex wants to work at UPS. You think we want to give up our AC’s?

Oh and UPS pays for my insurance for me, my wife and daughter till she’s 26, 100 PERCENT! How much is that added to my salary? And after you acquire lots of seniority you can bid on a route that gets you home at a much more decent time but your gonna have to pay your dues! I know because I went from getting home between 7 and 9 pm to being home by 6 on a daily basis. Those routes exists but it took me 25 years to get one!! Good luck and good video, pretty accurate in my opinion.

My brother works feeder at UPS Grande Vista in Los Angeles. 10 years ago when my dad had dementia, my brother and his wife had my dad sign over all of his properties to themselves. My kids and I are about to become homeless because my brother and his wife took out a $350,000 loan on this house and never paid it back. My father bought this home in 1957 and this home was intended to be sold after his death and the funds distributed to my sister and brothers, and myself. New owner says that we have until June 6, 2019, to get out.

Oh so that why 2-3 days ground shipping for FedEx takes 5 days to get to the destination. Lazy fucks, I need my laptop to get repair already and they are wasting time having that shit sit in the same place for 2 days smfh. At least UPS don’t waste time like trash fuck FedEx does. I wish Lenovo company can have a UPS shipping option instead of FedEx, those cheap fucks smfh.

Great video I am a FedEx driver I do 120 stops by 2pm than go home. usually about 800-1200 a week. No benefits but I can find my own. I would love to work for ups, but he's right they hire within and at ups they do more stops. I am happy that's all that matters. Oh and ups gets good trucks too. Let's be serious here we all work together. I praise and waive at all ups, and USPS drivers as they do the same for me. We are different companies with the same objective, customer satisfaction. Have a good evening.

Volcano 301 (1 year ago)
I never liked UPS. I worked there for 3 days last summer and then quit because it was frustrating. I never got the vibe I had a chance to make something of myself there, hence I felt I was wasting my time. This past spring, I started at FedEx Ground, because I applied for the first FedEx job I saw, and got it. I quit that, as well, after 3 weeks. I’ve now been working out of Boston Logan Airport for FedEx EXPRESS for the past 7 months, and I love it. Ask a lot of questions, get a lot of answers. I recently applied to drive tractor-trailers, and should be getting a call about the training soon (they pay for the CDL training). UPS and FedEx Ground gave me the same feeling, but Express has been great for me.

Yeah, one of the reasons I quit because of the overworking. Thanks for your insight, FedEx here I come! I hope! Lol. Peace.
Zach Schory (1 year ago)
@Brainwashed Commercialized Hip-hop Is Dead You can always try. But I have heard they don't usually rehire people who have quit. they keep it on record. I would try fedex or even try amazon delivery driver in your area. UPS will work you like a slave man for $10 hourly. The money is good for being a driver at UPS but let me tell you being a driver isn't a cake walk. It's hard as hell being in a box with no AC.
Brainwashed Commercialized Hip-hop Is Dead (1 year ago)
Zach Schory Thank you for answering my question, much appreciated. Is that list forever or does it have a time limit? If you know? I quit like that 2 years ago, and I really regret it.

Yo Maynard. I was driver for FedEx for 17 years and as you know now a PT supervisor for UPS. You have your companies mixed up. You are explaining the FedEx Ground drivers. They have 0 benefits. The benefits for the FedEx Express drivers are the same as UPS drivers. When I quit FedEx Express in 2012, even in the lower payscale of Billings, I made $60,000. I know the Ground drivers make considerably less. You are right about the family time differences.

Correct danny i started with ground then i ran for the hills to get a FedEx express job. Express has great pay and really great benefits. All i got with ground was a weakly salary and zero benefits.

I'm a feeder driver at ups and make a very good living well beyond what top pay us at fedex and only work 50 hours a week. And your comment about having to work for years as a package handler before you become a driver us not true in many states anymore. At my facility we have hired over 20 drivers off of the street to be a feeder driver in the last year.

I'm a UPS driver for Compton and i get home at a decent time sometimes before 5pm or 7pm nothing to crazy which still leaves time for family. Now that its peak season I'm getting home before 8pm they put out more routes cause they want the drivers in by 7 so atleast they work with us 👍 We also work Saturdays for peak but its super light i got home at 4pm last Saturday i cant complain I've been with the company for 10 years and through all the bs in the warehouse i can honestly say i love my job and company

Is there any shortcuts for becoming a UPS driver?
Lino Zovich (6 months ago)
Alex when they call you after you apply, tell them right away you wanna be a supervisor. They will, off the record, make life easier. Then, once you have “made book” , tell them you have to give it serious thought because you like driving and they will get the hint. There’s no way they can get rid of you after that (unless you do something REALLY stupid). Play the game and make system work for you!
Zach Wachs (1 year ago)
J V (1 year ago)
Location is honestly the biggest factor. I became a full time cover after 2.5 yrs. Which is pretty dang good. Volunteer to drive for peak season and ask for the manifest of the area you'll be learning. Go out on your own time and learn the route before they even take you on the road. If you find that you're unable to learn the route stop by stop, then get accustomed to the area and look for landmarks you can remember. (That's how I've learned 6 routes in a year.) Make friends. Seriously. Your coworkers will have your back when you need help. They'll show you tricks and tips on how to do your job better, faster and most importantly safer. Anyways, best of luck to you and I hope some of this helped.
Rumeel12708 (1 year ago)
Yuppp it depends which hub you work at, here in SoCal UPS hub its a minimum of 5 years to become a driver, but my cousin in Wisconsin told me he became a driver in less than a year. So the hub location changes things drastically.
Rumeel12708 (1 year ago)
He also told me that their required pph when he was a loader was at 150 and here for us its 350(packages per hour)
-d i- (1 year ago)
Sorry for the wall-o-text but here is my expanded view... Started Peak season 2017 and they picked me up as permanent at peak end and been brown since. I’m an active teamster voter thanks to you and Tyler often holding contract discussions with many senior drivers which has given me amazing insight. I honestly feel broken and used at my hub. We’ve been told for 2 years now we will move into a new facility and nothing has happened... 45% of our supers and flex supers are younger that 22yo with no experience and have been given little to no training which further widens the rift between management and dockworker. My co-workers are 2nd to none and I’ve often found myself staying, helping them because we all feel like we are in the grind together and not many places can offer that. When I see or have worked in proximity with FedEx helpers for peak they always look well trained, best equipment, prim ‘n proper, and well rested... Walk to the UPS offload section of our stop and my guys look like what’s left after a street brawl in street clothes, ready for a bar fight... scrappy as all to be damned. At UPS you are viewed as part of an algorithm and not much else where I’m at. Mistakes are repeatedly made despite the same outcome by supers leaving package handlers frustrated. The common coping mechanism is complaining. Despite all those things I wear my UPS shirt with pride because I earned it. I didn’t give up and by sticking with it I have something in me that I thought was gone for so long and I’m still younger guy! I have to wait 12 months since perm status to get insurance as they fire and hire you the same day if you started in peak season and are kept on after perk.. The National contract hasn’t helped at all and until it kicks in I’m uninsured because of the failure in leadership at the higher levels of contract negotiations. I just hope I don’t get the flue this season. Not because of health but sadly because of the out of pocket cost I will be facing which is sad. I have been going to school outside of peak season and I’m just not sure about going driver. The benefits are amazing but my body is already starting to break down. I’m a bulk van loader for a heavy equipment company route at my UPS hub so I deal with nothing but pallet loading when I’m not pulled to help co workers. With all that said. A super slow day feels like what a normal work schedule should be and the bad days honestly feel abusive in many regards leading to me witnessing others receive wicked injuries followed with grievances being filed and listening to the commonly asked phrase.... “why do they keep doing this to us.” In private I’d love to tell you more over beer or coffee on coms.

As a package handler, choose the location closest to you. If you’re barely making over minimum wage (in California) don’t go out of your way. Location is key

bah ha ha ha. All these years I have been saying UPS is run by Christ supremacists. Here is a UPS kiss ass sup with a bible verse in his video. Whiten those teeth buddy, and keep burning crosses on no Christians lawns.

That was the most unbiased, informative video I have ever seen. My opinion, start at FedEx, then bring your experience to UPS. Many people are turned away at FedEx because of previous involvement in a union. We have a saying at my facility, "UPS will spend three weeks training you, and the rest of your career trying to fire you!"

You were taken advantage of because you were a good worker. Period.

Boogs114 they kept rerouting you cause you had low seniority. The whole company is based off seniority. Seems like you were a new driver with no seniority. But that’s where ups shines. The first few years is trash. I’d say the first 4 years. But after that the company gets better and better the longer you’re there. Eventually you’ll have the easy route that EVERYONE wants and get to choose any days you want off but it takes time to reach that point.

I was with UPS for 1mo, then resigned... they kept rerouting me to help other senior drivers while i was a trainee & had to pick up my daughter. 1/2 year later got hired at FedEx during peak season for 1mo, it was easy, both jobs in Brooklyn/Queens-NYC.

Maynard you made very good pro's and con's for both sides. Being a package car driver for 33 years and on the same route for my last 25 years. I was able to get to know the Fedex drivers and get their insights. When your young it's to see the future no crystal ball. So I say if you work at one or the other and you plan on staying there make the job work for you ! Take advantages of ALL they have to offer ! Here is a side story . After being retired for two months my son asked me at the dinner table " Dad what's the best thing you like about retirement " ? My answer was "This ! Being able to sit down with the family at the dinner table every night and talk about our day ".

Hey, um, what's a pension? What's 401k? I've never heard of these things..

@King Kirby, A lot of jobs won't tell you if you don't ask, you SHOULDN'T have to ask if they are worth working for. MOST jobs have the two you mention and other jobs offer a LOT more benefits than others. Just ASK, it won't hurt.

Well my pension and 401(K) combined right now is 13% higher that UPS drivers top pay.
