    I was offer a job by an o/o who contacted by fedex custom.He told me they required 2 years experience and haszmat.I have no problem getting my haszmat endorsment but will fedex ground accept me with no experience?The guy told me he will give me two weeks to get my haszmat but dont want to get it and then cant work for him becouse I dont have 2 years experience.Is this something he and I can work around with fedex customs about my experience?Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    The O/O wants experience. If you don't have any, you need to be honest with him now and let him decide. Otherwise, you are wasting your time and his.

    it will take 3 or 4 weeks to get your letter from TSA in order to get your hazmat endorsment.

    If FedEx is requiring 2 years experience for all drivers in this route and he breaks that, he's in danger of losing his contract...and FedEx contracts are quite lucrative. But that's his deal I suppose. Not trying to discourage you or anything (hey, any job in this economy is a good thing to have). But if I had a FedEx contract/route, I'd be following their guidelines to a 't'. They are worth quite a bit and cash flow quite well.

    here in nevada, you must have the letter before they let you take the test.

    Each state is different as to how they handle Hazmat endorsements, so you will need to call you DMV and make sure how they do theirs.
