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.
Let's See. Decided I've Had Enough Of Trucking. See No Future. Only People Gonna Get Squezzed In The Long Run Are The People Making These Fu#$ed Up Outfits The Money.
If I Sound Bitter I'm Really Not. I Had A Good Run. Now I'm A 47 Yr Old College Freshmen Heading Down Another Path. Good Luck To All.
I don't know if I could start all over in another career especially one I would have to study for. What is ya learnin'?
All good for roll over. Do it ASAP! Did mine last week
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.
Think many of us are going to discover new places we should have found much sooner. It's Estes for me
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.
Starting at FedEx Freight tonight on the Outbound.
Future looks brighter there........
AL Looking for a home
I just talked to them (FedEx) they said they are doing the background check now. So it still looks good.
P.S. Good for you dragonfisher
Update, Couple days after doing the above post I got the phone interview. so the next step is the tinkle test and anal probe. So it looks like I'm still on track.

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.
Red White and Purple
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
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!!
