    Is it possible to transfer from Express(Material Handler) to Freight(dock worker)?
    I am not sure if I can transfer or if I would have to quit and cut ties from Express then take a chance on getting hired at Freight.

    I am only getting 20 hour weeks at Express and almost every day I have to take unpaid 30min-2 hour break then clock back in when the plane gets there. So I rather go to Freight if possible.

    Just apply at freight. You can't transfer but you can get a different job. Why quit until hired?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Won't the system kick out his application because he already works here?

    Nope, different company's. We aren't allowed to work for any other FedEx opco so long as you're already an employee of one of them but that doesn't mean you can't apply for work to any of the other opcos.

    Knew a courier who now drives for Freight. Had to quit Express first before he could start working over there.

    Put in the app and if you get a job offer and accept, put in your 2 weeks..just like any other job.
