    I worked at FedEx Office full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got health insurance and benefits.

    Cons

    Over worked, managers are always hiding in their office. Staffing are out of control.

    Advice to Management

    We are in the frontline of the business. Assigning an inexperience copy retail manager is not the best option to make a branch profitable.

    I worked at FedEx Office full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good foot in the door for print work -Employees were great -Lots of opportunity to learn the ins and outs of production/design/retail

    Cons

    -Management will look for any excuse to write you up -Management more obsessed with selling pens/flashdrives/candy than selling print/design -Constant threat of being fired/written up/harassed by management -Truly the dumbest customer base in the history of retail (clueless about technology, enraged at the slightest problem, think print jobs are instantly created) -I was promoted (7 months after being told I would be promoted) only to discover that you cannot be promoted again until 6 months have passed (If I had been promoted when promised, it would not have been a problem) -Paid chump change, when one considers it is 8+ hours of nonstop work, work, work. -Constantly shifting hours -As a night shift employee, expected to clean the entire store, help every customer that walks through the door, AND do the giant pile of jobs left by the day shift to be ready in the morning. -Called constantly by the day shift during my time off about jobs (waking me up, my sleep schedule was non existent those 2 years) -Management limits the number of hirings a district can have, to the point that it does not keep up with (abnormally high) turnover

    Advice to Management

    Maybe not be so obsessed with sales of pens/flash drives/candy; who cares about a $1 profit margin on those items when you're dealing with multi-thousand dollar print jobs? Maybe not treat your underpaid, overworked, highly trained employees as little more than burger flippers? I've never been so disrespected in my life than by the management (both middle and upper.) It honestly felt like I was living in some sort of Kafka-esque, absurd Catch 22 fantasy world where everything you did was scrutinized, and there was no form of positive reinforcement. On my 1 year anniversary, I received a "certificate" of appreciation. You know what would have been more effective for my morale than a useless piece of paper? The promotion and pay raise I had been promised 5 months earlier.
