Hello, I work at FedEx Freight and have a good friend and coworker who is stubbornly refusing to hold back on trying to become a UPS feeder driver. The primary reason I try to convince him otherwise is because he still has preventable accidents (though minor) on company record (his MVR is clean). I believe all of his accidents except 1 will become over 3 years old at the beginning of 2020 thus allowing him to get back into the driving program. But it would likely be a year til he reached the top of the pay scale - likely by that time he would become a linehaul/road driver which rivals the pay of UPS feeder according to what I have researched (about 80-120k/year depending on bid). With all of that being said, we have seen several drivers go to competitors after becoming disqualified, never admit to the minor preventable accidents (as they were only on company record), and never have an issue. I don't want to see my friend end up with no job. He seems to think that I'm being paranoid but I'm merely telling him he should play it safe. At the same time, going from second year freight handler at $21.xx/hr to starting $28.xx/hr (according to him) as a feeder driver will help his finances out significantly. Has anyone heard of UPS or any trucking company finding out about an applicant's omitted preventable accidents - though they were only listed on the previous company's internal record? Can anyone weigh in on this?
