    Pros

    FedEx has a portable pension and a traditional pension. The portable is there if you were there early enough before changes were made. This is separate from the 401k which the company also has.

    Cons

    Getting away from people first...

    Pros

    FedEx provides good benefits and job security. Most employees are dedicated and hard workers. Average opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Company is very rigid and there is not a lot of opportunity to effect change. Management doesn't respond to employee input enough.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and be more flexible.

    Pros

    Great company benefits. Raises are minimal at 2 percent a year so you are there for the benefits not the pay.

    Cons

    Since raises and pay are minimal job is not for someone who needs to make the money for the head of household.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises for employees need to be grater than the two percent.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers are nice, although not always the best at managing. They do listen to requests for change of position and time off. Each warehouse is different and your experience may be good or bad depending where you go. For a college student, I am able to work at night and go to school during the day. Nice co workers.
    Many opportunities for growth and raises.

    Cons

    This job alone is not enough to make bills; most people have 2 or 3 jobs.
    It is hard work but the pay is nice.
    People quit often and you have to pick up the slack from the "newbies" all the time

    Advice to Management

    Many things need to be fixed such as methods of applying stickers (ground) and the balance between enough people working and the speed of unloading.
