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

    Pros

    They are a very big company and i felt that i didn't have to worry about them closing. Consistent work. People in the office and out in the field were very nice. They always keep their equipment in good condition.

    Cons

    They would move me from from shift to shift and it was very hard to have any kind of family life.Hardly recruited from within the company. A lot of good employees would get passed up for promotions and would leave the company. Finally the amount of hours people work is too much for them and their is no family time for many people at all except for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes management should not delegate as much as they do because they don't always know how to do some things that they are delegating to others be and salary people. That's why good people leave this company to go to a company where they can work a little less and have family time.

    Allow employees to decline a position when the division is relocating and try to assist the employee to stay employed with the company and not get laid off, if he is not willing to relocate.
