Former Employee - Package Handler in Raleigh, NC

I worked at FedEx part-time

Pros

You get paid every Friday and part-time benefits are better than a lot of jobs full-time benefits (Health, dental, and vision!

Cons

Depending on the manager, some are lazier then others. Men will do more physical work then the women ALL THE TIME! In December they call it BLACK OUT, meaning starting the second week in December until after Christmas you will NOT be able to take any days off PERIOD! Also FedEx fiscal year starts June 1st and ends May 31st, so everyone has to bid on days off for their vacation. So it goes by seniority which means if you were hired after everyone in the company you will get wants left for the days off. meaning if two people already put in for those vacation days you won't even have a chance to get those days off. This happens every year! One guy I work with has been wanting to get Thanksgiving Eve & Christmas Eve off for the last 5 years, but because two other people have been with the company a little while longer and request those day every year HE NEVER GETS THOSE DAYS OFF! He has a family with young kids!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Certain managers DO SOME WORK! Make everyone work equally. Stop being biased to gender making the men do more physical work than the woman ALL THE TIME!

    Current Employee - Senior Marketing Specialist in Memphis, TN

    I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work. Committed team members. Generous benefits. FedEx is a strong believer in positive reinforcement. They often make the top of best places to work lists because they treat their employees very fairly. Respect, diversity, and cooperation are heavily favored.

    Cons

    Limited short-term promotion opportunity. Heavy workload. Politics. Employees come from all over the country to work here for the opportunity to work for this very well respected company and they tend to stay for a very long time. Most promotion is from within but opportunity is limited due to very low turnover and high satisfaction. Great opportunity if you plan on staying in Memphis for 10 + years. Hard to advance in shorter periods of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
