    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people from various businesses and fields on your route. Lots of exercise and outdoor experience for those that don't like being stuck in an office all day.

    Cons

    Independent contractor system is very poorly operated. You are essentially an employee that just assumes all financial responsibility of a contractor with none of the benefits that would normally come along with being an employee such as paid time off or time off in general. Similar positions with different companies in the industry get far more benefits and pay.

    Doesn't Recommend
