I have been working at FedEx Freight East full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay is decent enough for the back breaking work that you have to do on the dock. Most of the longer runs do not require dock work. Are in the process of buying new equipment..ie tractors, fork trucks, dollies and trailers.

Cons

Over the last several years Fedex Freight has rerouted freight to run it on rail lines thus saving money. It did away with a lot of road runs forcing people to either starve to death or quit to find another job. As a new hire most with have to start in the city and then go to the road if their is an opening. There is NO job security with this company. If they can out source moving the freight with another company then a lot of people who have been there for over 17 years will lose their jobs. They transport more of their freight on truck load carriers than they do with their own equipment. The benefits are pitiful. We get a mearger raise and then they jack the health insurance up on us time and time again. The moral is so bad in a lot of places that a lot of people have just started working for the pay check and that is it. They don't go out of their way to fix the problems because management doesn't care what they have to say. They are the most politically correct company I have ever worked for.

Advice to Management

Get in tune with what is going on within your region. Quit relying on some recent college graduate to tell you how to fix the problem. Go to the people you used to depend (dock workers/drivers) to find out how to fix the problems that continually plague this company. Listen to what your employee's have to say. Don't be so quick to punish them just because you think it will look good on the books if you have one less person to pay top pay and benefits too. The old hands are old hands because they still care about the company and the direction that it is headed. Work with us so we can fix these problems or they will just continue to get worse.

    I have been working at FedEx Freight East part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Flexible with schedule start times (if wanting to change). Fairly easy to get a day off if needed.

    Cons

    No benefits for part-timers. End time varies wildly, which makes it difficult to plan a life outside of work. Hours have been cut, leaving the crew extremely short staffed, thus working longer shifts than planned. Supervisor is a nightmare! All said person does is conduct personal business on cell phone all day, and yell at staff and customers. Very demeaning and unprofessional. Service manager is nice, but does nothing to remedy the situation with said supervisor. Office staff share the same rude attitude, which is disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    Please take stock in what your employees have brought to your attention. It's time to get rid of all of the negative people who are bringing down the entire staff.
