    Al J2 local

    FedEx freight, chicago hts. I signed up with Premier out here in Bradley the next day after we got the news we were closed. place is driving me nuts. I went on line and did the app. for fedex. they called me yesterday. I went through a 1 3/4 hr interview today. They want me to come in for a road test asap.( hey that will be a switch) looks like i'll be able to do it tomorrow. They said the entire hiring process takes 6 weeks. So I have to be patient.

    Hi AL,
    I started for Fedx National LTL two weeks ago, seems like a good fit for me. It didn't take me 6 weeks! Filled out app on line JUne 12 interviewed on the 14th pysical and drug screen I think on the 29th start 7th July. Hang in there they are starting a pension plan in 2009 might be well worth the wait!:smilie_132:

    It took me quite a bit longer. But I started on July 9th. Well worth the wait. I wish I had discovered FedEx National a long time ago.

    I'm finally on the board at ABF. Worked dock for three weeks, then casual for a few weeks.

    Strange being the guy on bottom. Haven't been bottom man in 15 years and even then, Jevic was in such a growth phase, I was bottom for about 15 minutes.

    I just talked to them (FedEx) they said they are doing the background check now. So it still looks good.

    Good For You

    Good Luck AL:

    Started at Saia in Franklin Park 8/8, as a line haul driver. Ran with trainer this week. Seems OK .4725 cpm to start. Raises every 6 months. Cheaper insurance. New bids in 2 weeks. I may get one.

    Thanks NWC1528, finding a "job" in the bradley area isn't a problem. Wanting to stay there is. .22 cents a mile is the norm out here. Unless you like to hump floor loads to stores, then you are on stops and miles. I haven't run into any unhappy FedEx guys so far so I think it will work out for me. I'm just an orphan looking for a place I can call home. Good luck over at Saia

    Later:smilie_132:

    NWC besides the raises you will get every six months you will also get the yearly raise in DEC!! So you will get one in 4 months then another 2 months after that!!:funky:
