    Pros

    The pay and benefits are the best I've ever had with any company. able to take time off when needed without it being an issue. enjoy the people i work with very much. most considered to be an extended family.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit distant and has a tendency to micro-manage things. Always needing to change policy and changing rules on the fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    being more open to suggestions from parties in each particular department. more opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    So far I have been at fedex for a month and I'm loving it. I was hired as a driver apprentice because I only had 11 months of driving experience I have all endorsement just didn't have a full year of driving but the DDC program is great kinda a slow process waiting on a available coach to train you. I was told I will be catching a flight to Orlando FL next week for 3weeks to ride with a city coach for a week, then a road driver for a week or two. I'm so ready to get this over and get in a truck working the dock sucks but I did it til they figured out where I was going to go train. Even working the dock u still get paid as a driver but it gets old when u use to driving a truck. Overall so far it's a great company. Just waiting on the old drivers to retire at my terminal I swear it's people there should've retired 10 years ago lol! Drivers like 70 years old need to b at home spending all that 401k money and collecting social security.

    Cons

    Some of the people there are stuck in their ways not friendly, not all but majority of the people who been there decades are the grumpy people. But the shift I'm on which is nights all the supervisor are cool you can go to them for anything.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, lower management treats everyone great, good schedule. Most things about the company are great. Overall satisfied with the company

    Cons

    Equipment isn't always in the greatest shape, sometimes we run out of supplies and have to make due. District management seems to only be focused on numbers, and it takes away from employee moral often

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep service centers stocked with decking, straps, etc... Take employee moral more seriously.

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

    Pros

    They offered great benefits, even to part time employees, I started out as an intern and made more money than when I switched over to part time, which was weird, but they were very supportive while I finished off with school, the management was great, I have nothing bad to say about them.

    Cons

    The only reason I didn't stay on with the company is because I saw that if I were to move up in the company there wasn't too much of a work life balance.
