Great job, your videos are very interesting. I worked at UPS for 26 years doing various jobs including being a driver. I had a p1200 loaded front to back top to bottom in the morning and that same after pickups in the pm sometimes. That was the craziest job I've ever done. Retired in 2007. Keep up the good work!!!

I'm trying to catch up bro. Been onto your vids for like a day... On a mission to binge watch today. Lol keep it up. Broke my foot getting out my truck last year missed 9 months. Back for a month or two now.. 👍

Dude you guys pick a lot of boxes up compared to Express.
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
200-400 at times

i had a package dropped off and the person couldn't scan the label which i think was because there's a clear tape on the barcode. will this be a problem when the package gets picked-up by the fedex person?
YellowMisanthropist (1 month ago)
not sure about that because the package was picked up on the 13th and there has been no update or status showing the package's whereabouts. fuck fedex
Ray Castillo (1 month ago)
YellowMisanthropist when that happens they can enter the tracking number on the powerpad

What's up C. Could you do a video about what a good diet would be for a FedEx delivery driver? I'm about to start as a FedEx delivery guy myself and want some tips on how to keep my energy up throughout the day.
BIG RENZO (3 months ago)
Wait bro I just saw a video you saying you couldn't make any more FedEx videos that's the first video I clicked on then I go to your Channel and you made a video today I'm confused...

Second Day in training. Problems scanning and trying to speed up. Tomorrow is do or die with the scanner the Trainer said. This is all for Ground. Going crazy man.

You'll get it down. It gets easier

Jumping out a Penske Rental Truck, running across a lawn up to a customers house, scanner in one hand, Three boxes in the other hand. Scanner is jacked up. You can't just hit the screen normally with your finger. You have to hit it with your index finger nail said down. Then typing on the scanner buttons after a signature is a pain in the butt too. Because I have large big fingers. It always causes the business to residential icon to go the wrong way after clicking and hearing the chime that you know you got it. Then you have to back out and redo the the whole thing over. That is causing a lot of wasted time. It's really frustrating.
Will Thompson (3 months ago)
Yeah. I'm training with a trainer that has basically two routes in Two Cities. today wasn't bad. but we had 120 deliveries and about 70 pickups. I think it's just nerves with the scanner cuz I'm trying to scan as in going and coming back to the truck.
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
You're having problems with the scanner?

I just started at fedex home delivery last week. I'm loving it but my route is all rural.
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
It'll get better. City routes are more ideal, more volume but some people like the rural routes

Your intros are lifeeee 🤙🏾

Aye! Thanks!

HD over Ground? Why? Pickups. Would sick to be done early then have to go back out later in a few hours to do pick ups. Only time I was out past 6 was when I had 165 stops. Was a horribly long day.
Omar Naranjo (3 months ago)
bye bye home delivery. fort worth terminal system updated to ground system.
Omar Naranjo (3 months ago)
CThompsonTv saturday no turn by turn anymore and package handlers scan our packages now. had 30 stops not scanned it was hell.
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Has the change already started for y'all?
theforce iscalling (3 months ago)
I think it really comes down to the route. Some routes are easier to plan out than others. Rural routes suck. Id rather be stuck in traffic with a bulk truck than have a 10 min drive to my next stop.
theforce iscalling (3 months ago)
CThompsonTv when i got hired the first route i helped on was a rural route. It was an hr to your first stop and and an hr back from your last stop and took 12 hrs to run all deliveries and pick ups. More power to the dude that does it every day cause fuck that. You could offer me 1200 a week and i still wouldn't do it
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Any rural route does suck and I'd have to agree with you there

Lowrider703 E (3 months ago)
You should teach us how to drive the van bro
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
That's an idea

Home delivery is going away anyway. Bout to be all ground

Daniel H (3 months ago)
HD all day !!
Big Boss (3 months ago)
I have a question for you Home guys. Suppose your done loading your truck and sort is over and you have 3 or so packages missing. Do you guys go looking for it on a computer to track it.
Big Boss (3 months ago)
Lee Yang, good. I hate being delay over 1 or 2 packages.
Lee Yang (3 months ago)
With the new system, we wont known if we are missing any.
Big Boss (3 months ago)
Kire Create Thanks.
Kire Create (3 months ago)
Big Boss you’re suppose to look for it at least dispatch will tell you that before they clear you and if you still don’t have it after you’ve checked your truck they’ll clear it off the scanner

If you want to go home early do HD...but yes i do ground i hate it because of pick ups my pickup window starts at 4pm an we have the 5oclock traffic where I'm at and it super sucks working all day an driving back in traffic
Michael Nava (2 months ago)
Brad Boisvert yea i been running 145-160 stops today was furniture day nothing but beds n bed frames etc it sucked...dam that sucks i hope the guy your helping really appreciates it pretty much at work all day sorry man
Brad Boisvert (2 months ago)
Michael Nava haha yes all week I've been getting done with 145 -155 stops by 6:15-6:30 feeling good then get that phone call to head back out haven't been home this week at all before 830
Michael Nava (2 months ago)
Brad Boisvert dang take another 20-30 stops on top of what you have crazy...that is what i have heard that UPS make it rain hahaha
Brad Boisvert (2 months ago)
Michael Nava my pickups start at 3 and I have 2 letter box pickups at 6 o'clock everyday my route is business and house calls and if I smoke that I sometimes get called back out to help take 20-30 stops of a guy who is struggling thats the UPS way but I do get paid well for it
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
It's the same way here
SCsBack 1 (3 months ago)
I started Ground now I'm HD
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Wow that's crazy and a few month people should know the route
SCsBack 1 (3 months ago)
Pretty good. Making more money now. The ground route I had was barely any stops. Now I routinely do over 100 which contractor offers a bonus for more stops. Plus I think starting Ground helped when they switched the system for HD. There was alot of HD guys who were nervous. One of our guys has been doing his route for years and needs to use a Garmin now because of the switch over
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
How's that going for ya?
Scott D (3 months ago)
Wow man you always were a Ground guy for the longest time vs Hd. Well I don’t have the turn by turn anymore in our station. On Saturday we started using vision for plotting stops and having loaders for HD so it’s basically the same as ground MINUS scheduled pickups every day.
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Yeah, late pickups are awful
Scott D (3 months ago)
CThompsonTv yeah late pickups suck. I’ve driven Ground a couple times to help a different contractor before but I didn’t have to do any late ones
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
Pickups are the only bad thing about ground
Jayson Talton (3 months ago)
They getting on me to bru. Don’t you just hate when FedEx gives you those big ass tires.#thestruggleisreal
CThompsonTv (3 months ago)
The tires are the worst and they come off closer to the end of my route sometimes I have to break route
Scott D (3 months ago)
First .... just had to do that for old times sake
Big Boss (3 months ago)
Scott D Wow bro. You were on beast mode today with those packages. I started a new route with less than 80 stops. Took forever because I'm not familiar with the area.
Scott D (3 months ago)
Big Boss 170 stops today almost 200 boxes but got done at a good time. My loader is the shit. Really nice guy actually puts stuff where it should for the most part.
Big Boss (3 months ago)
Scott D everything is going good bro. Likewise man, is been busy.
Scott D (3 months ago)
Hey whats up boss man! Not much just working like crazy at Hd it’s insane like it’s xmas still
Big Boss (3 months ago)
Scott D, 15th! Sup bro.
