    All I can say is....wow. I wish I had time to take a picture. Beat up van, no logo, no uniforms, 2 unshaven/smoking 20 something. They just rang and ran. I don't have a problem with ring and drop, but if he did stay at the door, I don't think I would have opened my door. Though my dogs make everyone that rings my bell think twice about entering.

    Funny thing is....one of my neighbors works for ONTRAC. Never did speak to him about his job. But, he has an clean ONTRAC van in front of his house every night.

    ONTRAC vs. FedEx Ground. Besides the different logos, they are kindred souls.

    Rumor has it that Fred's gonna buy ONTRAC and get another exemption to classify all help as farmers to pay them sub-minimum wage.

    When ground first came aboard in 1999, that's exactly what they looked like. Unmarked vans and no uniforms, looked pretty scary.

    That's not true at all. With everything that can be legitimately criticized about Ground, why do you make things up?

    Still have one truck in the building you can see the old RPS stickers under.

    Maybe things are different where you are BB but I can remember quite a few contractors drivers not wearing uniforms all the way up to around 2008. I still remember as they would be at the same stop and the customers are like "and who are you" to the HD\ground guys. I will give you this, of the three guys I'm thinking of one did have a uniform shirt on at least. Maybe waiting on the uniforms?

    In 1999 there were very few multi route owners. It was still "one truck, one driver". That truck had to be approved by Fedex and would not have been without decals. Now around peak season a contractor could get just about anyone and anything approved but that would only be for a limited duration and the vehicle would have magnets on the doors. Occasionally those would fall off, but as they say, it's an imperfect world.

    Could have been me. My pickup truck is also a Ground truck complete with decals. Drive my kids all over in it too. You aren't going to report me are you?! Oh...wait. They already know.

    Ha! I knew they had a decal set for a pickup truck; didn't realize anyone actually used them.

    Oh yeah. Great for 35-40 stops. Wouldn't want to do any more than that.
