    Had a pre shift this morning about a just one more raffle. From Dec - Mar if you get 10 jom in a month you get entered into the drawing. 5 first place and 5 second place drivers will be chosen at the end of each month, first place is $5k second is $2.5k.

    Bring on the fraud!

    We call BS. They don’t give away money like that.

    I’m just repeating what I was told, I don’t see any reason why the guy who gave to pre shift would lie. Also you don’t know what the company does and doesn’t do.

    Agreed,
    That's $25,000 for 5
    And another $12,500 for another 5 drivers

    Fx ain't about to give away $37,500 every month, tor 3 months.

    My guess is that it will be like the last Jom contest.
    Getting some small, stupid :shit: for every JoM. ****in small, rubber footballs, Teny, TINY box with 3 Band-Aids, and a pair of earplugs is what I remember getting. Insulting junk.

    I could get 5 , JOM in one day when you run the
    same route everyday. What a joke....
    Customers don't want to hear a driver begging
    for freight everyday nor do I want to hear your
    sob story why , get lost. Unless ya want to do 1/2
    for your customer. It's rife with debauchery.

    We know that the benchmark for $5k is 25 years of safe driving and no injuries, 10 of those years needing to be consecutive.

    In my 6 years here I haven't got 6 joms. Don't think there is any chance of me getting 6 in a month

    I was still there the last time they had the big JoM push.
    I don't remember the timeframe, or details.

    But I am sure I got rooked. The winner got 63 JoMs in the timeframe, and I am positive that I was VERY close to that, if not more.

    But, I remember a particular week where I got 11 JoMs. The next week, a Redshirt read out who got what for the previous week, and they had only recorded me getting 2. This was before the Green JOM stickers. Looking back, I should have made them dig into that, but I was already making plans for my escape, and it wasn't a big concern.


    Moral is,
    Make damn sure that every JoM you get, is recorded!

    Been awhile since I was a city driver, but isn’t any thing not in your handheld a JOM. I would go to a customer who would always have 2 or 3 more shipments than they called in and I would get credit for a JOM on each one. I didn’t ask for them, it was just orders they got done early or they decide to send with Fedex since YRC wasn’t running in that area that day. I got a little Fedex NASCAR for all of the JOM I got. Even though I never asked for one, just lucky to have that route I guess.

    we were told no that wouldn’t be a jom. You have to ask for the freight and get it from another competitor for it to be a jom or so we were told.

    Didn't I read that John Smith said in the most recent video that "we are headed into the busy season now so stay focused"? I haven't seen a JOM contest in years. The trinket closet must be full. As far as the $150,000, who knows, we are throwing $500,000 at billboards to say we appreciate you. Must be tapping the new revenue stream of the insurance penalty.

    LMFAO ... How long you been with FedEx?.. not calling him a liar. He's just missed informed. Once we had that contest winner got something from the FedEx catalog. And I think it was like from the 5 yr of service catalog.

    Also, Fx has NEVER given out incentives for their workforce to go above and beyond.
    Yeah, yeah, BZ/PP awards.. Wtf ever.

    Those things are handed out about as often as Harley's comet makes it's rounds.

    Why does it matter how long I have worked here? It’s possible he was misinformed but I doubt it, why say anything if it’s not true.

    Well, it's 100% true, just as OP reported.

    Buddy sent me a pic of a poster they have up at the old barn..

    Kudos to you for posting verification of the original post. THAT is admirable. Clearly a "stand up" thing to do. :1036316054:

    Wonder if any of the more dramatic naysayers will do the same...

    Apparently the numbers work. A few large (but random via a drawing) payouts must cost an amount similar to thousands of small token prizes. We know FedEx certainly has, and knows, numbers.
