    I have been working at FedEx Freight full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at FedEx Freight full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    FedEx Freight Part-Time dockworker

    Current Employee - Dockworker in Monmouth Junction, NJ

    I have been working at FedEx Freight part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is the by far the best part-time job I have ever had in my life. Starting pay $16.36 an hour. for me, the hours are very flexible for me. 15-25 hour work week, my shift is from 5pm-10pm. I go to school during the day so it works out REALLY well for me. Medical benefits and 401ks for part-time workers? it doesn't get any better than that; for me at least. my job is to move the freight from point "a" to point "b". its not a complicated job but very physical and time restricting, similar to the career field I plan to go into.

    Cons

    Supervisors don't always have an accurate count of what has already been loaded or bayed. sometimes they give work that has already been done and ill be looking all over the place for this freight.
