A friend of a friend I know works for Fed Ex. If I remember correctly he said he only makes around $17/hour as a delivery driver. He was complaining that UPS drivers make a lot more. Their hiring process can't be that rigorous, the guy is mentally unstable and not terribly bright. He didn't say anything about drug tests or interviews, but he did say he liked his job overall.

$17 an hour in how many years?

Some FedEx routes are independent. The guy who delivers to my work, works for another guy who owns the route. The guy who delivers said he gets paid by the package. (maybe just a commission).

as the matter of fact, i work at fedex as a handler, part time........itz not so bad........just a whole lot of lifting.......they started us around $11.50 cuz i asked the other people that just got hired............im not so sure if all fedex express starts you off that much........i heard other stations are less, so i guess depending on the station and where you at..........itz a really good part time like i said........as far as the drug test, they don't test us every month unless you look all stoned or f.u.cked up then they might have you pissed in a cup or what not...............and for that $17/hour.........drivers start off around $14 or $15 depending what kinda driver you are, shuttle or swing? and over the years you get a pretty good raise.................and for the driver who get paid by the box, those are the fedex ground drivers........they actually own their own routes and gets paid per piece, so they make a lot..........got more questions? i hope i got the answer.................and good luck.......

I work in sales for FedEx..but I started as a 'Cargo Handler' ..it's a good >>part-time<< job ..it also gives you full benifits...the only real problem I see with it is >>>alot of lifting..and the job can get pretty boring and unchallenging ...

No drug tests
Yes theres an interview
Cargohandlers in Canada make about 11.50 an hour to start
Most people like the job ..but it's more they put up with it!
