Fine for Part-time shift work; wouldn't recommend it long-term.

Pros

The shift hours are reasonable for someone looking for part-time work or an extra shift to make additional money. The work itself takes some physical exertion but isn't hard otherwise. The setup of the workplaces makes it a fairly nice place to be sociable.

Cons

Shifts will be moved around with no say from the employees. Upper management shows little concern for Package Handlers so long as it doesn't affect their jobs. Some of the truck drivers have strict demands for the loading of their trucks and aren't afraid to harass handlers about it, even though they're not supposed to. Ultimately, the package handlers are at the bottom of the food chain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The drivers need to be told to back off sometimes.

    Pros

    Meet talented workers willing to give their best to make the company successful.

    Cons

    Vindictive, oppressive, as well as deceptive predatory business practices built on greed and misleading personnel. Senior managers are not trust worthy and appear to be more motivated by profits at the expense of their employees. Their communications are self serving intending to deceive. They control contractors as employees and burden them with the lion’s share of the company’s’ operating expenses. They reconfigure contractor’s route by adding areas, without notice, and then holding them liable under their financial accounting system despite fervent objections of contractors. Force and/or dictate that contractors service areas immediately when they have not agreed to it, or have never serviced area before. Controlling and use coercive methods to get their way while depriving contractors of their true independence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company potential to be outstanding is unlimited if leaders would lead instead of their lawyers. Involve workers in solving problems instead of allowing desk bound key-board engineers to dictate solutions.

    Fedex ground has improved but still has a long way to go

    Pros

    It does fill a certain niche for someone who wishes to do this type of work while offering some lattitude in scheduling

    Cons

    Although Contractors are considered independent, almost every aspect of what they do is governed by FedEx to include:
    Wearing company uniforms, purchasing trucks with FedEx branding, dictating the manner and means of how the job will be performed. Workload is subject to the whims of Management. You are pretty much an employee with no benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More independence on how a contractor performs the job. If you want the benefits of branding through uniforms and trucks then contractors should be compensated for it.
    More communication on every level. Communication is still very poor. The company is very selective about sharing information related to the business.
