    so i have a friend that wants me to work for him which hes a subcontractor for fedex doing home delivery. Many years ago when i was young i was arrested for not paying showing up in court for a traffic ticket for i had a warrant and i turned myself in.(2006). another arrest was for loitering but that one was dropped.(2008)

    I have 2 speeding tickets 84 on a 65 on highway.
    Should i be ok or will i fail the backgroung? Thanks in advanced

    I don't work at Express, but I don't think a misdemeanor (unless it's a DWI) and another dropped misdemeanor (especially from 5+ years ago) would keep you from getting a job.

    It probably depends on how long ago the speeding tickets were, as well.

    I'm sorry, but you'll need to commit at least 2 more misdemeanors and a felony before you meet the minimum qualifications. Rules is rules

    You won't qualify. A speeding ticket while traveling over 80 mph is automatic disqualification. FedEx Ground considers that reckless driving.

    Ticket was 2 years ago.

    You should be OK. If you really want the job, go ahead and apply. Worst that can happen is they say no.

    Most moving violations stay "active" on your DL for 3 years Older one's can be found but don't take points off you license. Has Florida notified you if you have any points against your current license?

    Really? You think I don't know this one?

    A driver will not be qualified if, within 36 months:

    2 tickets exceeding the posted speed limit by 15 mph or more, or one or more instance of operating any vehicle at 80 mph or more, both constitute the dangerous and careless operation of any vehicle.

    Feel free to apply. Make sure your work history is complete and accurate to the date. I doubt youll make it past the MVR though...

    or the best that can happen is they say no......seriously, being a grunt in this outfit - regardless of opco - is a major deadend. FedEx is a company that will let you tear your body up for them and then toss you to the curb and put the onus for your injuries all on you.

    So long you did'nt kill anyone you should be ok. Fedex loves drivers who like to go fast.

    He sure did. Fredward has done everything that the rest of us get canned for - only on a much grander scale.
