    I have been working at FedEx Freight East

    Pros

    flexible and will work with your schedule most of the time, Great pay for the work, very lax environment, easy tasks, great people

    Cons

    weather, limited upward movement for intelligent people, take advantage of strengths

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in competent managers and not just the first person who you know will not ever be offered a better job and therefore won't leave the company. That type of retention policy is cannibalistic to the company.

    I worked at FedEx Freight East full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you were good at your job you could create shorter days for yourself. 401K matched 3% and yearly bonus

    Cons

    Upper management didn't care about Supervisors, even if they did a great job they would fire you instead of working with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have a good Supervisor you should try to keep them.

    I worked at FedEx Freight East

    Pros

    Decent equipment, decent uniform allowance.

    Cons

    Backstabbing,cut throat supervisors and management. Talk out of both sides of their face, let me tell u folks, people will throw u under the bus in a heartbeat in this company to get ahead. there are plenty of little brown nosers and butt kissers that are lazy and can't do their job but will try to screw you to the wall to get ahead and get your seniority slot. you have dishonesty and corruption within this company from the top to the bottom from senior management CEOs HR representatives terminal managers supervisors all the way down.and this is 100% fact I am NOT fabricating one single word.I could go on and on and on about this company I put seven years in and got screwed in the endjust be prepared if you go aboard get your nose nice and brown and you might get somewhere eventually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advice for management well learn how to manage cuz you are clueless individualsEverybody's job is threatened everyday including managers with this nonsense. System right up since like kindergarten working for this company.

    Pros

    People first, diversified employer, room for advancement.

    reactive versus proactive, as with all fast paced companies, time management is a struggle in demanding times. More with less

    I have been working at FedEx Freight East

    Pros

    I have owned my own business and had a few good jobs in my life, this by far is the BEST. I make GREAT money (over $70,000 last year) i love the challenges, the people I work for, with, and deliver to.

    Cons

    It was tough getting hired but well worth the wait. Very slow in the winter, so not 40 hours until other drivers above you leave, which doesn't happen very often. Other than that nothing really bed to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My center manager is by far one of the nicest, hardest working, all around best managers I have ever worked for or with. He always makes time for everyone from the smallest issue to the biggest with a cool and well balanced demeanor.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, raises come on time until you top out, great for college students, good benifits. Great short term job

    Cons

    Upper management is extremely disrespectful. There is a daily feeling in the air that managt and not the workers make the company go.Hr is terrible they just as well notave it. Also rules change/amended weekly by management, supervisors dont communicate between themselves, dock associates are told not to do xyz but supervisors do it. Dock staff noticeably more knowledgeable than leadership in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have realistic expectations. If we have on hand what it needed to do the job it will be done. Dead weight supervisors that your ops managers talk about get rid of them. If you are never on the dock it dosent make since to make regulations and rules that negatively effect production.
