    Hello everybody I was wondering if any one can point me in the right direction or help me out .So recently I apply for a FedEx sameday city courier position (Got tired of Working at FXG)I did really well on my interviews and got and offer letter and start day but yesterday I receive an email Stating due to my Recent MVR I did not meet the criteria to be a courier.
    I have a cell phone violation ticket that I receive while being on the job about three months ago, but I have no points on my license clean record.After going back and fourth with FedEx office HR apperantly is not run by them but by FedEx Services and only they have the final word.Does anybody know here if there's anything I can do or say before going to them.I have great PA reviews as well as references,I just don't understand why FedEx Sameday Cares if I have a cell phone ticket if my license has no points.I really want this job because of the benefits better pay and scheduled.Im just so bummed out if anybody here works is FedEx services I would really appreciate any advice thanks in advance.

    The contractor will gladly take me back but with a new route since my old one went to my replacement and a pay cut.

    I don't remember the amount of the fine, but operators of commercial vehicles are absolutely banned from using cell phones while driving.

    Consider yourself lucky.

    He got popped for using a phone while driving, Davey/Dan.

    I'm guessing it wasn't hands free.

    Your contractor will likely not be allowed to have you back if it is showing up on background.

    A couple weekends ago I was driving on the freeway to go to lunch and noticed an Express truck passing me. I look over and it was the SDR manager speeding and on his cellphone. lmao

    OP dunno what to tell you but that does suck for you. I try not to ever let a customer get my phone number.

    You shouldn't be driving for ground either. That's a disqualifying offense.

    That's good if he didn't fire you. Now you have a better chance of getting unemployment when he has to let you go because he won't have any work for you.

    Absolutely banned?....that's a good one. I know it's a fineable offense, and a steep one at that but absolutely banned?

    @Dax723....I would say moving forward that whenever your cell phone rings to resist the urge and to pull over to a safe location to answer it. Personal or working, I always let it ring and will get to it later when it's safe to do so. I think your having to deal with the consequences of your actions and you'll be better for it. If it turns out that your contractor will take you back but with a pay cut I think that's a real chicken :censored2: move.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    Unless they're willing to pay your monthly bill, NEVER give your cellphone number to a customer.

    But, but.......It's supposed to be the contractor's business.

    Oh yeah, that's right, FedEx has you guys by the balls.
