Job Seeker in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania said: How long does it usually take to become a full time driver ?
I used to be employed by Fedex and started out as a part-time handler. It took me about a year to become a part-time courier and then year after that I went to a full-time courier. I worked nights as a handler and then went to mid-shift as a courier in which the starting hours varried. Some days I started at 1330 and others I started after 1500. It depended on the workload of the route and also if they wanted me to do some deliveries. Also I had no idea when the end of my shift was, because it all depended on how soon I could finish my route as well as if they needed help back at the station. In the end I became what I called a courier/handler. I did my route, then came back to the station and loaded/offloaded heavy weights, plus helped with the sort and parked trucks. It was good because I got more hours(40 plus, instead of up to 35).
