    Pros

    Great pay. If you in college this might be a great part time. Might be a lil too much for females. People is great.

    Cons

    heavy work. You will come out dirty as hell. Not suitable for a girly girl.

    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.

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

    Pros

    It's basically a work out for 4 to 5 hours straight. Be prepared to get very sweaty and dirty. I work with many good people. Management is awesome and even helps when lines get backed up and there is only 1 loader in the trucks. I love the fact we only work 4 to 5 hours a night but there is no way you could work this job doing 40 hours a week. By the end of every night, you'll feel like you just got done doing an obstacle course after doing a 5 mile run. Must be in shape.

    Cons

    The pay where is I work is crappy. This particular location starts out at 8.92 an hour but you get raises every two months for the first 6 months. Be prepared to get injured ALOT and come home with many bruises. Trucks collect ice in the winter and the entire cabin is a skating rink so there is lots of slipping and pulling muscles. On occasion, loaders work a truck on their own, but the sorters send boxes down as if there are two loaders in a truck. The expectation is to load 400 boxes an hour and it doesn't matter what size and weight they are. Packages come in all shapes, sizes, and weights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a pay increase of a couple of dollars or at least match what other Fed Ex locations are paying. Why is the pay so different where we are? Someone should look into that. It would take me 3 to 5 years to make what some of these other package handlers are making starting out.
