It is like this, You run a ad asking for Owner/Operators to come on board, You have to run team in order to be a contractor with FedEx. Meet all these requirments and you can come on board and mke 250,000 a year with out any problems.Spend about 2500.00 to get all the equipment needed & go to 3 days of class to learn about FEDEX AND YOU HAVE A GREAT JOB.
Well this did not happen from the start.We did everthing we were asked to do and then we were dispatched.We ran our first load then we sat for 4 days waiting for dispatch to call with the next run. NO calls from dispatch 50 .00 a day keeping truck running to keep warm-Staying in the truck for 4 days just waiting to get that call Nothing happen we call everyday no freight-No money for sating waiting for that call.
Here we go days pass - time pass and bills start coming in for the money spent to sign on with FedEx.Truck Payments Due-House Payments Due Pick Up trucks due, Insurance payments and no runs. We ask what is going on with your dispatch syatem.We are just a bit slow but things should pick back up real soon. Don't forget you are new to our system. We cannot pass you up on dispatch becuase our dispatch system will not allow this to happen.
You know what we mean-No shakey dispatching goes on here if this was to happen we could get into big trouble.Now here we get a couple loads offered & we could not afford to pull them due to the fact it would cost us to run the loads. SO WE WAIT yet 4 more days, now things are getting bad. We have been leased on with them now for 36 days and have not made enough money to pay any bills.
Here we go waiting for dispatch to call.Now we are finding our own loads just to get home.NO revenue for the first month-2month-4 month now I am running by my self becuase we could not afford for my wife to run with me.
Here we go starting to lose trucks - home -and now rig, Now out of a job.
Does FedEx care NO they would not even advance me enough money to keep MY Rig SO I CAN WORK -REPOED Out of work now personal trucks lost everything in 4 months.
Thanks FEDEX for causing us to lose everything we own and worked so hard for.
We have lost 289,000 home-65,000.00 pick up trucks-55,000 rig to make money,500.00 a day for time sating waiting for loads 20 days 10,000.00 dollars worth of layover time.
NOW WHAT DO WE DO FROM HERE NO TRUCK TO WORK WITH -NO PICK UPS TO FIND A JOB-NO HOME TO LIVE IN.BAD SHAPE.
STAY AWAY FROM THEM
SIGN WILLIAM & CLARA S.
FEDEX YOU WILL GET YOURS ON DAY
