    Dont do it...

    Package Handler (Former Employee)
    Independence, KY

    ProsBenefits do not come out of your paycheck. If you are a college student or if you only have a highschool diploma/GED it pays pretty good (starting at $10 dollars an hour)
    college tuition reinbursment

    saturdays and sundays off.

    Consyou have to work there for a year before you get benefits. they lie to you and tell you part-time is 20 hours a week and full-time is 40 hours a week, but in all actuality part-time is 15 hours and full-time is 30 hours. over-time is not allowed.....seriously. the goals are unreasonable. they expect you to handle 421 packages an hour but the most anyone can possibly handle an hour is 300-350. they COMPLAIN and will write you up for not meeting this goal. everyone always felt like today was the day they were going to get fired.

    the management is a joke. they all play the he said she said roll and blaim everything on the package handlers. no sick days and if u are even one minute late you will be written up. safety is lectured every day but is tossed out the window to meet goals but at the same time a manager will write you up for violating the same safety rule he told you not to worry about the day before. i have seen people be let go for some of the most idiotic reasons. i was package handler of the month one day then fired the next. no lie. all because my scanner broke and they said it was easier to blame the packages not being scanned on me then their "perfect computer system"

    Advice to Senior Managementreward for good work not just punish for bad work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great for a kid in college. Horrible for an adult with a college degree,

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Independence, KY

    ProsStill thinking about the lack of "Pros" within the company.

    ConsHours, Pay, People, Management, and Environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOver 90% of FedEx Managers were once package handlers. Need I say more?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
