    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good business model, quality people. A little bit chaotic at times. High pace, safety orientated environment

    Cons

    Managers choose favorites and use the people they don't like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change the way the Carol Stream facility is managed. There are managers there that swear at package handlers and make fun of people behind their backs. It is not a positive work environment at all. Others are used because they can't stand up for themselves and some managers abuse them. No one is judged on their quality of work and very few people get written up..... only if they've been targeted for termination because while they might be good workers, they don't adopt to the fraternity culture. The people that work hard have to do more to make up for the people who are chronically absent and there are no repercussions.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground

    Pros

    One of the biggest advantages of working at FedEx Ground is the open environment to speak about concerns or problems with management without fear of leaving a bad impression. Also, the opportunity to grow within the company is a notable benefit of working at FedEx Ground. If you work hard, the management takes notice and is willing to give you more responsibility during your shift, which can lead to promotion within the company.

    Cons

    Although FedEx Ground has various benefits, the workload is not effortless. The shifts at work can be hectic, frequently loading over 400 packages an hour or sorting thousands of packages an hour. Furthermore, the shifts tend to be at hours that can be inconvinent, such as 11:00 P.M. till 8:30 A.M. With that being said, after working for a few weeks, the work load does not seem too bad given that you will probably become accustomed to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some advice to management I would give would be to consider giving employees who have excellent performance more opportunities to receive a pay raise versus the standard pay raise schedule.
