    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.

    Pros

    Flexible hours allows for a good workout . Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Supervisors like to move around people too much instead of letting people learn their work areas. To much favoritism.

    Reward good workers more with incentives

    Pros

    Employee importance takes the top position when talking about FedEx. Team work is the key here. Recently started adopting new technologies on board. Teams are more like families.

    Cons

    Still some old technologies are being used. Advancement of personal career is not fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change of green card processing from EB3 to EB2 will be helpful.

    I have been working at FedEx

    Pros

    Benefits are very generous
    Independence once out on route.
    Great Co workers.

    Cons

    Management will smile in your face and then back stab you. Make sure you make your numbers and don't have late deliveries. Problems are always addressed way to late. Sometimes micro management environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it easy we are doing a easy job delivering a service no reasons to stress out.

    I worked at FedEx full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lateral moves are possible, pension plan that few companies have, job stability, once you are a manager you are bullet proof. Equitable hiring practices. great company for ex-military people. Great brand recognition. You are responsible for creating your own work/life balance. Upper management has good vision and innovative ideas. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Terrible managers are never held accountable. Management is overwhelmingly white males. Raises never keep up with the cost of living so negotiate high when coming on-board. No real support for innovation. Managing up is a huge burden on top of your existing work load. Being nice or political is more important than being knowledgeable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of under-performing managers. Pay attention to the advice in the employee survey. Promote some women. Memphis is not the center of the universe. Recruit more widely and engage a global, remote workforce. Live up to your effort to go green and save office space costs by letting more people work from home.
