    Pros

    Still one of the best employers in Memphis. Pay is not the greatest. Currently have a manager that understands work/life balance. Overall glad I am working here.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Hiring managers do not want to recognize your skills and talents that you have successfully proven at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be scared someone will get your job. Surround yourself with great people. Other employers love to hire FedEx talent.

    I have been working at FedEx full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pros are that you can move up in the company if you really work hard. Also the incentives of being able to get discount shipping, being able to fly on interline rates are wonderful. FedEx offers a great benefits plan and its the ideal company for a young person just starting out!

    Cons

    Company is outsourcing to vendors who do not understand English that well therefore it makes the job harder for their co workers...Ground contracts out to outside vendors who dont hold up to the standards of what FedEx used to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to outsource to venders/contractors then they need to perform in a way that keeps up with the purple promise mission. It annoys people who call in and the customer service reps can not understand what the person is saying or doesnt have a clue of what they are calling about

    I worked at FedEx part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and a great company that supports its part time employees. The part time employees in the Hub are the heart of the company and Fed Ex does everything they can to keep them employed.

    Cons

    The greatest con to being a part time employee are the hours. The easiest job to get at Fed Ex is a material handler during the night shift. This job makes it very difficult to get college done which makes it difficult to further your career.
