    I have been working at FedEx

    Pros

    Great Company. Great for college students. Even though it says part time if you need full time hours it is not hard to get atleast 32hrs a week in. You can get promoted pretty quickly(since the turnover is so high ) as long as you show up every day and do what your suppose to do you can get promoted in less then a year. If you need help with something everybody is willing to help as long as you ask

    Cons

    If you work the preload shift the hours are the hardest thing to get use to Tues-Sat 1am-8am. It took me about a month to get use too. Physically you are sore no matter how much you work out. It took about 2 weeks to get used to the physical part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers do this and some don't. But try to get to know your employees. Its not hard to ask how someone day is. Its not hard to tell if someone is having family problems or other problems outside of work and if you notice that just ask how they are doing without getting too personal. You would be surprised how much of a difference that would make them feel. Also if a employee is messing up tell them when they do it don't wait a month also don't yell and make them feel like they are a inch tall we are all adults so there is no need in that.

  8. Material handler

    I worked at FedEx

    Pros

    Fedex has great employee and insurance benefits. For material handler, this should only be a part time job unless a part time job is all you're looking for

    Cons

    You will only only get about 4 hours per day/ night if you are lucky. Christmas is about the only time you will get more hours. You can always ask for more hours, but odds are, it's only going to be on the weekends.

    I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Good People, Interesting and Challenging Work, Fair Management

    Cons

    Under market in pay scales (utilize wide, broad base pay bands that can result in massive differences in pay within the same job code), extremely difficult to move into management roles, and behind on diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some diversity in upper management. 50-65 year old white men shouldn't run every company. Grow your internal talent and pay them market rates. Pay bands need serious revision.
