    I have been working at FedEx Freight West

    Pros

    Hourly positions are more than generous, as far as pay is concerned

    Cons

    Few options to progress in the company if one does not pursue a college education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more involved in the implementation of new and effective ways to improve efficiency.

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

    Pros

    great benefits, room for growth and opportunities, managerial staff very helping and willing to improve your skills. pay was above average.

    Cons

    the hours you worked varied from day to day. there was not a set schedule. sometimes the payroll checks were late being delivered,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more hours to the hard workers and not the ones who did not give it their best effort.

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

    Pros

    FedEx is a large company which offers opportunities for advancement in management "IF" you come to the company with the education and experience and fully prepared to move up.

    Cons

    Drivers and loaders are at the mercy of the latest corporate whim..FedEx will open and close facilities and terminals at the drop of a hat..giving little or no notice to employees and totally disregarding the loyalty of employees and the stresses placed on families...Be prepared to move like a gypsy..Don't invest in a home or plan to have your kids finish school in a specific area...FedEx demands loyalty but does NOT reciprocate except to a select few who play golf with the supervisors and managers...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the guts to stand up and do the right thing when your supervisors and district managers and human resources personnel collude to cover up their actions to protect a employee who wears military insignia on your uniforms and lies about his military service...In my case, I secured the poser's military record which consisted of his discharge after just two weeks of Navy boot camp..He couldn't even finish basic training..but, he golfed with the supervisors and regional managers..

    I have been working at FedEx Freight West

    Pros

    average pay for the industry
    good benefits
    FedEx appears to be committed to staying in the LTL industry, overall good job security

    Cons

    LOTS of politics, if you're "in" with the right people you have nothing to worry about, if you're not, management can make coming to work miserable.
    Employees (hourly and low level managers) are treated as easily replaceable pieces of equipment.
    It is NOT a team effort, each group is pitted against the others with inconsistent goals (dock vs. drivers vs. dispatch vs. ...) The goal of management is NOT to service the customers, it is to get a good "score" on internal audits.
    Managers advance by undercutting those around them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take feedback and constructive criticism seriously. When an issue about a manager is brought up, a typical response is "No, 'John' would never do that." Most concerns are simply dismissed as untrue, while managers tend to make snap decisions without attempting to gather information. This promotes employee disengagement.
    When a service center consistently ranks at the bottom year after year in the annual internal survey, it's not because we "misunderstood the questions." Morale begins with management.

    Pros

    The support and sincerity of supervisors and management make this an optimal place to work. The recognize hard work, yet are concerned during tough personal times.

    Cons

    The weather can be tough as the dock area is not climate controlled. So, summers can be sweltering, and winters blistering on some days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job supporting dock workers continue that and production will continue to rise.
