    anybody wondering what you could do besides driving Fedex ground van? Drive a semi-truck localy, without the sleeper, make same amount maybe more, less work phisicaly, home every day. THAT IS IT! there are no jobs, school gives nothing, you cant make anywhere $900-$1,100 a week, besides trucking...think about it everyday what else I could do, thought there are few that think the same thing, so for your frustrations if you feel bad do what I do, study for cdl :peaceful: there are more trucking companies looking for drivers, so when you have your cdl-a, your experience will be growing since you get it, for the records on your license, and you wont need to suck up to people, or be nice, you can relax! GET YOUR CDL-A :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: FEDEX! have a good sunday!

    This is true....but if you're someone who gets bored easily and dislikes mundane work, delivery is a good job to have.

    After you meet the people who work around you if you get a job at FDX, you'll realize a demented circus monkey could do this job.

    With so many awesome opportunities it's crazy how many drivers there are with CDLs and how many resumes come in for driver positions from people with CDLs...

    I do and I have to watch my back when I'm in my own personal vehicle.
    You guys need to know that if you have a CDL and get popped for a moving violation in your own vehicle, on your own time, that it goes on your record for 7 yrs.

    Yes, just like the thousands upon thousands of resumes submitted for "management" or "contractor" positions with "degrees" from Brenau or Phoenix "Universities"

    Plus, if you are pulled over and have been drinking, the limit is 1/2 for CDL holders.

    Yes,,,if you are driving a commercial vehicle. If you are off the clock and in your own personal car that does not require a CDL, you are .08 like everyone else.

    are you sure about that?

    Yes....We had commercial enforcement come in a couple years back. he threw a couple trick questions out there. That was one of them. We all answered .04. We were all wrong. Its not the license that determines the standard, but the vehicle you are operating.

    From the FMCSA:

    The FMCSA has established 0.04% as the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at or above which a CDL commercial motor vehicle operator who is required to have a CDL is deemed to be driving under the influence of alcohol and subject to the disqualification sanctions in the Federal regulations. Most States have established a BAC level of .08% as the level at or above which a person operating a non-commercial motor vehicle is deemed to be driving under the influence of alochol.

    If you are near a railroad terminal, they are all hiring. Work hours can be tough, but the pay is fantastic.
