Current Employee – been working at FedEx Ground full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Employment of any type in a repressed economy does have value by providing income.
Cons – The FedEx Package handler position was created to service the company need of unloading, sorting and loading it's vehicles. FedEx INITIALLY - up thru about 5 years ago could support the operation needs with temporary part time staff - easy come easy go "BODIES" as we were referred to. FedEx began to value some "part timers" and encouraged them to sign on for "FULL TIME". This full time is not more than part time x 2. There are no reciprical considerations for all the back breakers - no more pay, time off, no sick days, no berevement time off paid, no stock options, no retirement, no 401k - Clock in on time, meet quota, take extended unpaid breaks when told and get off the clock when ordered. And then the work conditions - Below 0 to 115 degrees + for 2 to 4 hours.
Advice to Senior Management – R E S P E C T - equitable pay and benifits for ALL . Without the diligence and HARD WORK of Package Handlers the business would collapse. E D U C A T E and T R A I N the workforce. There are many hard working individuals who can excell in the business given opertunity and support. Management needs to L I S T E N to the employees, they may learn something.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
