    Pros

    Excellent benefits, 401k, health ins., vacations and sick days. Start out pay ok. College reimbursement plan. Some payout bonuses..

    Cons

    Very slow pay rate increases. Work to life balance is heavily weighed on work if full time. Incentives are dwindling..

    Advice to Management

    More understanding with work load, pay raise system need major revision.. Almost feel never able to reach max pay rate. Incentives for good work revision.


  3. Not a bad job but would be worth it if they increased pay

    Pros

    -401k -Health benefits -Paid Vacations and time and a half -Tuition Assistance up to 3k per quarterly year

    Cons

    -You feel ripped off at the hours, I work in PVDA and I'm guaranteed 17.5 hours. If you try to work extra shifts in the mornings it feels like its not worth it because it counts towards the minimal 17.5 hours - not much room to move up in the company. - You have to take a stupid Defensive Driving class to become DOT certified. I've gone like three times to the class and failed for parking too close to the parking space

    Advice to Management

    Managers are kind, respectful and I never really had a problem with any of the managers there. The senior manager at PVDA is one of the most energetic and optimistic people I've ever met. You won't find this working at a McDonalds.

    Pros

    decent benefits, MM, Dental, Vision, vacation, travel, etc. for part time decent managers that still care about their employees! most employees are team players in addition to good individual performers

    Cons

    odd hours are part of the Fedex Express business plan that make their system so effective and efficient, but difficult hours to adjust to, however no job is perfect! YES?

    Advice to Management

    effective communication is critical to any business and becomes increasingly difficult the larger you become. Fedex you are mammoth! Always room for improvement, but believe you do above average for your size. Also, employee IT systems should be available via the net rather than having to do everything that is not secuirty sensitive on site at the plant/office: i.g. time off requests, vacation bidding, corporate email access, etc.

    Pros

    You work alone mostly with little direction. Courier does not do much customer service. Most problems are handle by CSRs.

    Cons

    Schedule can vary. Job is very fast paced and not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible. Time off is a big deal. Help your employees grow and learn.

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits. The physical nature of the job will leave you in good shape. You work with some really good people, I have made some life-long friends from the 12 years I worked there. There are opportunities to transfer to other cities, I worked in three different stations in my career at FedEx Express

    Cons

    No matter how much you do, it's never enough. What was a really hard day's work 10 years ago is an average day now. You are pushed so hard (especially if you are young, big and have a good work ethic) that you will develop injuries. I ended up with a bad shoulder from all the heavy lifting. (and I never reported it because it got worse after I left)

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving managers around so much and putting so much pressure on them! I had 23 Ground Ops managers in the 12 years I worked there!
