I have been working at FedEx part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fedex pays tuition assistance of up to three thousand dollars a year. They also provide basic benefits despite being only part time.

Cons

The biggest draw back is starting at 4 am. Work outside in the cold. Amount of hours worked varies greatly per week.

    I worked at FedEx part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is like being part of a professional sports team at FedEx Ground. Management doesn't force too much down your way, but you are an essential cog of the wheel. It is an easy job to get, but it takes art and strength to keep it past even the trial period. If you get good and do it correctly, it is a great exercise.

    Cons

    The primary position requires that you scan 300 barcodes an hour and lift 70 lbs. quite regularly and if you can't take that you will not be around long. Most people actually do make it. There are sirens and the constant noise of the conveyor, earplugs might save the valuable hairs of your inner ear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be innovating worker safety. Some things that seem annoying over a short period of time could reek havoc after 5 or 10 years. It is hard to work 12-4am, and one time we had leftovers from a barbeque on 6-10pm shift. I'll add that it is hard to have a social life on that shift and it would be better to feed us and get us a little more accustomed to the night shift with a provided quick and variatable "dinner" before each shift.

    Work environment and culture is great, but salary is low and not enough growth opportunities.

    Current Employee - EB2 in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - EB2 in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    One of the most admired companies with global reputation and strong C-level leadership.

    Cons

    IT side growth opportunities are few and far between, especially in Dallas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put a limit for promotions into EB3 - there are lot more qualified people stuck in EB2 and there have not been enough opporunities!
