Great Company To Work For!
Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 23 November 2017
I applied as a temporary worker and have been treated very well. I have always been able to work overtime if I wished, but never felt pressured to do it. Overtime is calculated on a daily basis and not weekly so that means even if you work one day a week you are eligible for overtime (~25 $ an hour). Starting salary is around 17.50, but after a couple years you'll be up to 25$ hour. which is something like 37.50$ for over time.
My station has been super supportive while I've been there for almost a year. Positions open up often and it's easier to apply and get accepted since I'm already in the company.
No matter if it's the couriers, the package handlers, managers or customer service reps, everyone is helpful and happy.
If you're a courier get ready to know your city like never before. You can say you know it but if you're anything like most new couriers you'll have trouble for the first 1-2 weeks. The company doesn't give you a route to follow, you have a sector and must find out how to deliver all your packages before their commit time. Fedex provides maps but you might want to figure out a more efficient way of getting everything delivered/ picked up.
If you need to do a driving simulator to get the job take it seriously. Even though it isn't realistic drive slower while it's raining or you're around a lot of people/ cars/ city center. Signal, don't press the gas too fast either.
I highly recommend taking any position to start just so you can get into the company!
Overtime is calculated on a daily basis and not weekly, lots of hours, great environment, great benefits
A little stressful, you'll need to know how to keep your cool
