    Excellent Company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at FedEx

    Pros

    This company provides excellent benefits and retirement options as soon at your start state which is unheard of in this industry. They also have 401k and a pension, also unheard of in today's business world. The work expectations are reasonable and job support is there if you need it.

    Cons

    There are not many options for upward mobility which is common in company's this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. We were not permitted to participate in company supported community events because our vice president did not support community service. This did not set a communal tone in the office.

    I worked at FedEx part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a good fast pace working environment with decent pay for the position. I enjoyed working with other handlers

    Cons

    The pay is good but they rush you out so fast to avoid paying you as much. You would be lucky if you could afford to pay the electric bill every month as package handler.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the pay worthwhile.
