    I have been working at FedEx Freight full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You can make 130k a year as a Road Driver with a top route (600+mile bid run). Off every weekend and Holidays. Home Everyday or Nights depending on if your a City Driver or Road Driver. Good equipment at the Big Terminals. If you Work hard and let your Seniority build up you can create a good life for yourself. Camera in Truck is watching the Road and NOT you.

    Cons

    Takes a Decade or longer to get a Day run as a road Driver. Starting out as a road driver you will work the Dock which can be ok or bad depending on your work ethic.
