I just learned something very interesting - FedEx delivery personnel are not REQUIRED to knock on the door or ring the doorbell. I have been expecting a package for several days. Someone has been at the house the past two times that FedEx "attempted' to deliver the package that requires a signature. The last sticker was handed to us by the UPS driver that arrived five minutes after the time the FedEx delivery person put on the sticker. I called customer service to complain and was informed they are not required to knock or ring the bell. WTH!!! Unreal!
I initially believed the delivery person was incompetent, unable to figure out how to extend their finger to ring the bell or to make a fist to knock on the door, now I have found out it is FedEx as a whole. Since the company does not 'require' it, the delivery people don't do it.
I tried to make arrangements for the package to be left at a pick-up location such as the local FedEx/Kinkos office. I have talked to 4 people three of which 'arranged' to have it left there and the fourth person informed me that no one has put through the request. i just got off the phone with them - they said they put through the request. If they are like the others, I doubt it.
