    I worked at FedEx part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    FedEx was a great company to work for, plenty of resources available to compensate their employees. A lot is expected of you physically to work in this position, and it all needs to be done quickly, but you are rewarded for your hard work.

    Cons

    Working at the ramp in Austin, TX, the summer months are tough, the warehouse is hot, working on an aircraft is hot, but your body gets used to it. Like with any work place, there is miscommunication that leads to extra work needing to be done which is often frustrating.
