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

    Pros

    The management is well selected; the facilities and concern for employees is a priority; and the work is variable , constant, and fast paced.

    Cons

    There havent been any major cons in my experience so far. Like any industrial job, there is constant noise (belts running, etc), but I couldnt see it leading to even slight hearing damage unless one worked full time for years.

    I have been working at FedEx

    Pros

    Good wages and local management. I would recommend FedEx to a friend and have.

    Cons

    Some micro-management from upper management. Benefits have lessened over the past few years and it is rare now to get 100% of bonus. Usually attain between 25-50% now since they changed how it is paid out. When I started 100 -120% attainment was considered normal. It used to be based on station performance alone. Now it is based on local, operating company performance, and corporate performance. If FedEx decides to buy 100 new planes, it now affects your bonus. I wouldn't mind the new structure as long as it was attainable. Seems like they always have a reason for not paying out complete bonuses, even when then company is doing well. We haven't come close to 100% since they changed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either do away with the bonus and increase annual pay, or make it more attainable. It only frustrates people to know they can't attain a goal, no matter how well they perform their job. For upper management, listen more to people on the frontline to understand the challenge's better before instituting policy and procedural changes that may just make things worse.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interline discounts haven't changed other than 6mos certification on dress code and conduct as a representative.

    Cons

    Higher out of pocket health costs, retirement contribution match not what it used to be, takes longer to top out. New hires earn almost as much starting than 10 yr employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know the job you are managing so you can lead by example, developing and recognizing strengths rather than weaknesses. Look toward engaging good workers, rewarding excellence instead of praising and encouraging mediocrity in the workplace. Enable visionary team support instilling pride and trust. Eliminate negativity, competition and rivalry which breeds contempt in the workplace as in hour distribution. Focus on the talent in your workgroup and how they are best served.
