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

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 (15 days 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.

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).

Fedex Freight driver, home every weekend, about 50 hrs a week. Paid weekly, roughly gross 1600 a week, only been with company for 1.5 years. First year 62k, looking to clear 70k easy this year, my third year ill easily clear 80k.

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.

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 (2 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 (3 months ago)
UPS it is. 👀
Jose Camacho (3 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 (3 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.
ricky salayandia (3 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?
John C (1 month ago)
Point in question here, there’s a large pay scale diff between the 2. UPS even hires at 3 dollars more hourly startling rate

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.

Go to either of their Freight divisions if you want to drive. I was at FedEx Ground driving for 2 years and it was exhausting both mentally and physically. Worked in secret to get into FedEx Freight driver apprentice programs and boy what a difference this is! I'll stay here till the end 👌👌👌

Clarence Jones (7 months ago)
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.
Boogs114 (24 days ago)
Clarence Jones no benefits!? Im guessing ur with FedEx Ground...
Volcano 301 (7 months 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.

@Brainwashed Commercialized Hip-hop Is Dead as long as you have a decent work history you should be fine. good luck.
Brainwashed Commercialized Hip-hop Is Dead (8 months ago)
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 (8 months 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 (8 months 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.

You can't put a price on work life balance. But that's my personal opinion i know the UPS guys here might think differently but that's why we have FedEx guys and UPS guys.

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.
Zach Wachs (7 months ago)
. FedEx express and ground suck a bowl of dicks my friend. I'm getting my CDL from C.R. England and I'm going to make real money. Food for thought.

Just did an interview here in Florida, and it was explained just like Danny said. They offer weekly pay between $120-$160, with no 401K, or any other benefits.
Zach Wachs (9 months ago)
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.
Brad Boisvert (4 months ago)
💯% true I got hired off the street driving for ups and am wanting to get into feeders as soon as possible

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 (1 month 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 (9 months ago)
FUCK NO !
J V (9 months 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 (9 months 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 (9 months 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- (9 months 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. Be safe this season everybody!

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.
Brandon Settgast (9 months ago)
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!"
Boogs114 (3 months ago)
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.

nicholas james (9 months ago)
im a package handler. was at ups. now at fedex. and like it much better. the enviroment is much more positive. fedex started me out at 13.25 and a year and three months later im at 14.50. with an extra 2.25 an hour for peak months. plus we get holiday pay wich is time in a half. my insuranse is very good. i am part time so no 401k . but i am enrolled in the stock option plan. wich is good. i work basically full time hours as a part timer and i could go full time any time i choose to. there are plenty of cook outs during the year and meals provided for holidays. and the best part about that is they provide it all at the end of the shift. so everyone can relax and enjoy it. fedex dont got a union but i dont miss it and i aint coughen up dues wich is a plus. fedex has a open door policy where you can sit down with any manager know matter how high up to express any concerns or ask any questions. wich i think is great. and the managers seem to genuinely care when this is done. is fedey perfect? no. but i am content there and most of the time happy to be there.

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 ".
