I am a risk taker so posting here risking all the snarky comments i expect to get but my time is up. I am supposed to start work today with Fedex ground package handler full time. I chose fedex bc it pays 13.50 starting out and it is full time. I have since been told by someone working at ups that feeders make 27 an hour and he almost guarantees I can become a feeder driver by the first of the year. I thought this was too good to be true so I asked several others that worked for ups including HR. HR states feeders are running about 6 months to 1 year. Here is the delima. I am female 50 years old. Im not the old fat 50 year old granny type, I can hold my own or I wouldnt be interested in this job. i actually intereviewed with ups several weeks back and was hired but I just needed to tell the guy which shift I wanted and i could start. Midnight and preload pay $14 until the first of the year. Day shift is 10. I struggled with the pay and pt so I waited a few weeks before deciding to go with fulltime at fedex for more money. Now I hear about the feeder position. I called HR guy at ups to talk about it and found out he is no longer with the company What?? he had been there 8 years or so. I wonder if its bc he asks out the people he is interviewing. He is young and he asked me out on my interview. I told him I probably have a son his age. lol Anyway I find out I have to reinterview with ups bc he is no longer there and I cant start for another week. The guy who works for ups for 28 years and is in feeders and thinks I can be drving by the first of the year says the hardest part about the job is deciding what to have for lunch. I can drive a stick shift and not afraid of big trucks except when it comes to turning left or right or backing up. lol So ok all you snarkaroos have at it. Should I just stick with full time and fedex and eventualy top out at about 17 be close to home or take a chance on being able to do feeder. For some reason it just feels feeder at 27 is just too good to be true and then what if i cant handle it. Working for 10/hr part time does not sound fun. WHat do the shifters at ups make? I forgot what my friend told me. At Fedex shifters make the same as anyone else. Does fedex hire feeder drivers or are they all contractors? Ok no more questions for now. Thank you everybody. Im supposed to start fedex at 230 and I also have an interview with ups at 230 so its decision time.
