I have been working at FedEx Freight West

Pros

average pay for the industry
good benefits
FedEx appears to be committed to staying in the LTL industry, overall good job security

Cons

LOTS of politics, if you're "in" with the right people you have nothing to worry about, if you're not, management can make coming to work miserable.
Employees (hourly and low level managers) are treated as easily replaceable pieces of equipment.
It is NOT a team effort, each group is pitted against the others with inconsistent goals (dock vs. drivers vs. dispatch vs. ...) The goal of management is NOT to service the customers, it is to get a good "score" on internal audits.
Managers advance by undercutting those around them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take feedback and constructive criticism seriously. When an issue about a manager is brought up, a typical response is "No, 'John' would never do that." Most concerns are simply dismissed as untrue, while managers tend to make snap decisions without attempting to gather information. This promotes employee disengagement.
When a service center consistently ranks at the bottom year after year in the annual internal survey, it's not because we "misunderstood the questions." Morale begins with management.

    Pros

    The support and sincerity of supervisors and management make this an optimal place to work. The recognize hard work, yet are concerned during tough personal times.

    The weather can be tough as the dock area is not climate controlled. So, summers can be sweltering, and winters blistering on some days.

    You're doing a great job supporting dock workers continue that and production will continue to rise.
