    Exam Expedite appears to be a fleet owner leased to FedEx Custom Critical and looking for drivers who will need to be FXCC qualified. You'll need to ask Exam about their compensation method, i.e., percentage, flat rate mileage, company driver (W-2) or sub-contractor (1099), deadhead pay. If you can not find any info about pay scales or driver references from the company (Exam Expedite), then you are looking at the wrong company.

      Ask the owner for names of former drivers. He should not object to that. If he does, you don't want to drive for him anyway.

      Just out of curiosity, if you can't find any information on this company, why are you looking to go with them?

      Well couldn't do what I wanted to do. If you look in the open forum page at the bottom you will see companies advertise what there looking for and there on there. After I read that your looking for a driver or past driver with that company can't help you, sorry.

      That would be a red flag for me.

      Not necessarily for me.
      They may have been recommended by a recruiter or someone else who knows it's a decent company, but might not know the details like pay or whatever. I was just curious. But I also wanted to ask the question just in case a red flag might need to be planted, in case he hadn't thought it through and might need to expand his options.

      I'd recommend reading Terry's answer again and giving it serious consideration. Most expediters, as in almost all of them, know less than what Terry has forgotten. When Terry speaks even E.F. Hutton shuts up.
