    I have been working at FedEx part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good work out. Good hours. Good management. I personally enjoyed the hours, but the time frame they were in left a bit to be desired (I understand why it was so early). The crew was very stable; not much turn over. Whenever someone left it was usually because they were retiring.

    Cons

    AM shift is kind of early. Seasonal work gets really heavy during the peak seasons (Valentine's Day, and all of November and December). I really enjoyed this job, but the overall pay was not enough, and it doesn't really correlate to any field that will make a good living wage unless you want to be a driver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management (hub level) was great. I didn't have a lot of interaction with upper level management, but they didn't do too bad by me.

    Pros

    Employee importance takes the top position when talking about FedEx. Team work is the key here. Recently started adopting new technologies on board. Teams are more like families.

    Cons

    Still some old technologies are being used. Advancement of personal career is not fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change of green card processing from EB3 to EB2 will be helpful.

    I worked at FedEx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, tuition reimbursement, benefits, upward mobility, diverse, relocation all over the world, culture, fast-paced, high quality service, proud to work for

    Cons

    Industry by definition warrants a lot of micromanagement, always more with less, work/life balance, traditional management not interested in changes/new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Old way of doing things is going away with younger folks coming aboard (and leaving)--evolve or become UPS.

    Good managers. Push you to work hard.

    Not too much time to rest and heal up.
