I worked at FedEx part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Lots of flexibility on hours, relocation, and promotion. Generally good people and a world-class service brand. I had worked for the "major competitor" for many years, and found the FedEx workplace and culture to be much more open and motivated.

Cons

Work ethic tends to be somewhat lax. Customer service is given a lot of lip service, but many employees and managers find excuses to cut corners at the expense of the customer. Training is somewhat lax, and employee performance could be improved if methods and accountability were of a higher standard. But again, I came from "the Other Company" where standards were higher.... The best employees at FedEx are those who are self-directed and have high personal standards. Management won't hold you to high standards unless they themselves have them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting incompetent buffoons who can't even do the basics. Set a higher bar for management candidates, and then train them well. You are only as good as your leadership, and when your service providers are smarter than their managers things don't go well for your paying customers.

    I worked at FedEx full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fairly easy to get hired due to big turnover rate. Best insurance I have seen in a long time.

    Cons

    I seam to have been passed up over and over again due to being over 40. Takes about a year to qualify for the medical insurance. Wages were OK. Not the worst but surly not the best.
