Former Employee - Package Handler in Champaign, IL
Former Employee - Package Handler in Champaign, IL

I worked at FedEx part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Tuition assistance helped pay for my books at the local university. Consistent hours but worked the early morning shift so crappy hours.

Cons

Everything. The most frustrating part about this position was the management. They refused to recognize people with great potential. Rather they would hide them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a closer look at your package handlers. Many are college educated students that would perform better at a management position.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at FedEx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; stable (layoffs are rare); many experienced and knowledgeable coworkers

    Cons

    Upper management places burden of achieving work-life balance entirely on the employees, while first-line managers assign excessive hours, weekend work, and/or shift duty to employees; more than a few managers have a supercilious bearing; employees have no power over their working conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk with respect to work-life balance for employees. Show respect for those who are doing the work. Consider giving employees some power over their working conditions.
