I have been working at FedEx Ground part-time (more than a year)Pros
The company offers many benefits after 12 months of working as a part-time employee (insurance, etc.). You are paid a decent wage. The company starts you off at $10/hr, and after every 4 months or so there is a 25 cent raise, for the first 2-3 years.
You will get a LOT of exercise at this job. There is zero down-time for the 3 hours or so that the sort is being conducted, so expect to work hard every day.
There are no easy days working at FedEx, but if you are a hard worker, then this is something that you may come to enjoy once you are acclimated to the work environment.Cons
The work environment is very tough. In the heat summer and cold of winter, loading and unloading trucks or trailers can be very demanding. Expect to be sore and exhausted by the end of each week of work, because there is no time for rest while working during the sort. I usually get about 3 hours each day. If you are looking for a small side job that can help pay for some bills, then you can make this work, but don't expect to get any more than 12-15 hours or so (depending on location).
To be a good package handler you need to be in pretty good shape, or willing to push yourself for the first few weeks until you are able to keep up with the other people who have been working there for a long time. The job requires constant lifting and moving back a forth within trucks and trailers, while scanning every package with a scanner that is strapped to your arm and index finger.Advice to ManagementAdvice
