    Pros

    I enjoy having flexible hours and the benefits are really good. The staff where I'm at is very friendly

    Cons

    Work a crazy amount of hours and there is constant pressure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to putting people first. There was a time when upper management cared about things like quality of life. This just isn't the case anymore

    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.
