    Hello Everyone:

    For past few weeks, I've been pouring over the LTL forums and the common theme for LTL trucking pay and work environment, seems reside in part upon location of the terminal.

    FedEx Freight in general appears to have a great reputation in terms of pay and benefits and I'd like to know if anyone has any good or bad reviews regarding the terminal located in Milwaukee WI.

    I don’t know anything about Milwaukee terminal but I did work at Fed ex freight in Charlotte a very long time ago I worked at American freight when Fed ex bought them.They do pay very good benefits are also good.When I worked there you pretty much started on the dock and did PD for a few hours would start about 4am work dock till about 9am then city till 1or2 pm.If you’re a young guy who can build seniority it’s a good career choice.Line haul then they never hired of the streets for that job city guys would take those jobs when one came open.

    As I understand it, most of the guys with seniority get the day shift for city driving. My preference would be to drive at night.

    Milwaukee is one location that I would be weary of for linehaul. You would drive 100 miles to one of the three Chicago hubs, work the dock for 5+ hours, then drive back to MKE. You would almost certainly be stuck on a bid like that for years.

    City driver would be the way to go, although it’s typically a daytime position.

    I know this is kind of old thread but Ive worked for Freight for 7 years. It all depends on the management in the center. Ive done my last 3 years as a road driver. Management at my center is horrible. More than likely any problems will be ignored. For instance we have automatic gates on some centers. My badge wasnt working, I tried for over a year to get my ops manager to fix the problem. Ignored every time.
    It wasn't untill another center got tired of having to let me in that they finally fixed it.

    Same thing with the old handhelds. If a pay task got messed up. Id ask to get it fixed and get ignored.

    Im at the point now that im considering going OTR.
