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

Pros

There are many good things about working for FedEx Office, such as the investment the company seems to make in their employees from day one, which (more often than not) leads to a great work environment at the store level. Benefits are fantastic (I had surgery for $80 - in AMERICA) and the work is fun and engaging.

Cons

Everything done above the store level gets filtered through thousands of man-hours of corporate tweaking, so that when it finally trickles down to the employees on the ground it's thick with the gunge of a hundred managers trying to justify their existences.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Greater autonomy would increase morale, and quality. What plays in Fort Worth doesn't always play in Peoria.

    FedEx bought Kinkos and took every perk or bonus away. They promised not to take away the culture, they failed.

    I have been working at FedEx Office full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They didn't lay anyone off during the 2007 down turn because they cut everyone's hours to minimum. They also stopped the 401k match for a year and capped all salaries.

    Cons

    When you click on Dallas locations only, all of a sudden everything seems rosy. Obviously someone went thru and tried to boost the scores up. Basically the pay is low, the raises are small, and you are lucky to get 36 hours . You will be short staffed and stressed out during half of your daily shift. The higher ups are paid on a commission of what money is made, so the less they have to spend on payroll the more they make. They currently are replacing full time with part time only. They have 1340 job openings currently posted, and that's really only half of what is needed. I see a sell off , remember Circuit City. they ran off all their experienced people first, then it was all down hill from there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have been made to no longer care, so why bother. Most are as frustrated as we are.
