    $17 hrly is pathetic but the healthcare makes up for it a little, and then there's the question of how stable the company is.... My question is how long does a driver have to hang at the bottom rate? and does the company play" the 90day wonder walk"? on the drivers trying to make it on the board, we drive for our families

    i didnt think too highly of it when i first started using the insurance but it really is the best insurance i have ever had..better than the blue cross blue shield i was paying around 100 /wk for thru my last employer.

    i have gotten around 2000$ worth of dental work so far in 2016 across 5 appointments and i have paid ZERO out of pocket, no copays, no deductible. and zero deducted from my paycheck.

    17/hr isnt awesome but it is great when you consider that those other companies arent likely to have a spot for you or you wont have much overtime and are subject to frequent and/or long layoffs due to freight demand. you max out at 22/hr in 3 yrs, outside of LTL you wont see a payrate anywhere near that.

    Wow, so you basically don't... What's the out of pocket? I was trying to justify the YRC free compared to Fedex, at $10 a month that's nada...

    Before the merger with roadway I worked the dock at yellow and made more than a lot of drivers now days... Very sad if you ask me

    Our out of pocket depends on what's being done. Most preventive care, etc is covered in full. Drivers/employees get a 6% raise every year...so you basically never top out.

    FedEx Freight, pays hourly, mileage, etc and are on par with UPS's Pay.

    Fedex freight is not on par with UPS freight and it is no where near the ballpark of UPS parcel.

    Fedex tops out around $25-26 an hour. Dont know what mileage pay is but im sure UPS freight is is atleast .07 or more.

    I dont know much about the insurance except I do know a lot of FedEx freight guys say it sucks.
