Default 1-3yr pay as a FedEx FO

Good evening, first post I know..

I have an opportunity at FedEx but have a pretty good gig where I sit too. I didn't do but just a couple interviews as a result.

Ive heard what first year pay is and guess its around the 70k mark. However what about 2-3 or even 5. Im trying to figure out if I leave a 250'ish job how long it will take me to recover and make headway.

I know all about the A and B plan but Im leaving retirement out of the discussion for now.

advice/help is greatly appreciated.

This is almost impossible to answer. Depending on your tolerance for being junior you could be back to making that money within 2 to 3 years based on the trend of recent bids.

If you choose to stay in the right seat a little longer for seniority purposes then obviously it takes a little longer.

So crewmembers are basically making strait BUG no soft money?

Ive heard some FOís bragging about some pretty serious paychecks? Not on here buy in person.

Thanks,

Ive heard so many figures from so many people Im starting to get dizzy.

Ive heard FOís state very hi-200ís and thought there was some embellishment going on. I seriously do understand what your saying too. I know guys that live behind that yoke and make a ton but their alone in life too.

Your current job sounds pretty good, however one thing to consider is the generous retirement packages FedEx has over many others. Donít forget to calculate that into your decision to leave your current employer.

Default At the end...

Like many others I had to choose between several options.

I took the information currently at hand ....pay, retirement QoL etc. Then I tried to picture myself at the end of my career and asked....which of these choices do I think would be best at the end of my career knowing what I know right now?

We canít anticipate all of the changes that might happen....but those unknowns can affect either job.

Good Luck with your decision!

I am on 3rd year wide body FO pay, last year I did 220k I worked hard and picked up as much as I could, did a little at draft pay also (1.5)

I am shooting for $240k this year!

Upgrade to the 757 is sitting at 1.5 years on property. Plus a little time to train tacked on.
