    Pros

    Good pay good benefits always hours to be worked and opportunities to advance. Flexible with schedules for students and others.

    Cons

    There is not many bad things about the job. Sometimes the working conditions are difficult but that's what you sign up for. Sometimes the supervisors are immature and could be retrained.

    Advice to Management

    Be hard on supervisors and make sure they are good for the job before you promote them.

    Pros

    Benefits , the fedex brand , every one thinks you work for great company.

    Cons

    Very demanding work load, with no support from upper managment, when you ask for help your told we are all busy, rather than help someone succeed , you are told to document and write the employee up to start the termination process. Very high turnover for managment and hourly associates , you never know from one day to the next when you will be terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees the way you expect to be treated , not like they are replaceable or just a number, promote job security , focus on ways to keep employees , rather than on ways to terminate them
