      Pros

      Great pay. Just a few tents shy 70 cents per mile. 45.50 per day in task pay. That's the basic hook swap drop and fuel. All those are paid separately. Additional tasks, out of route miles and delay are all so paid. But that will give you the basics.

      Cons

      There's really not any cons. If you're the type of driver that wants to do things your way keep looking. FedEx holds us to a very high standard. Also you're not going to walk in off the street and get a road driver job. FedEx is all about promotion from within. You can start out as a dock worker and work your way up. Even our managing director started on the dock. If you're young and willing to work it's a great job. You're not going to get rich but you'll be well compensated.

      Not the worst job out there but certainly not the best.

      Pros

      Great pay, decent benefits, VERY flexible scheduling (for part-timers, at least), no pallet jack-related work, good job security as extra help is almost always needed.

      Cons

      Lazy co-workers, unknown soot-like substance all over your body at the end of your shifts, recouping freight and FALL/WINTER SEASON(S)!!!!! Working either of these seasons is absolutely brutal if you're on the night shift... Below freezing temps on WINDY nights... I honestly can't recommend that anyone voluntarily put themselves through that... I'm just telling you how it is; you decide if it's worth dealing with.
