    Former Employee - Package Handler Part-time in Portland, OR

    I worked at FedEx part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Relativly easy work. Clearcut and simple. Safety is a top priority. Team focused on the bigger packages which are too heavy for one person.

    The schedule was great for a college student. Allows for growth opportunities while still being able to attend school.

    Cons

    Every once in awhile you get a hazardous materials package, which can be somewhat difficult to cleanup. Overall this is not really a con though.

    Pros

    Great training, nice compensation and benefits. low workload and vacations. Flight benefits great health benefits buddy passes traveling all around the world iota wonderful

    Cons

    The pay was a bit low, and although management was very willing to give me more responsibility and more opportunities, they were not willing to increase my salary.Move around too much hard to balance family friends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing is more infuriating than being told by HR or management that there is nothing they can do because according to their secret undisclosed formula the salary should not be adjusted.

    Pros

    Excellent team like atmosphere; work with some really good people. Managers are accessible and willing to provide new opportunities.

    Cons

    Must keep rather odd hours. Depending of your particular role during a sort the physical labor can be pretty depleting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote from within. It encourages employees to take a more active role and seek new responsibilities. It also serves to boost morale.
