    Pros

    Starting pay is Decent. Excellent benefits. Great environment to work in. Extra hours available.

    Cons

    Recently hired as a part time courier, downfall is its a couple months wait to get into courier school, so in the mean time you work as a package handler, once you go to defensive driving then you get a few more hours by getting a small route until you finish courier school.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the time to get into courier school.

    Pros

    I worked for FedEx Express a little over four years and I must say...they know how to take care of their people! From the pay, benefits, and 401k plan, to the practical training, management, and employees, FedEx truly keeps the employees best interests (and safety) at heart. I literally have nothing bad to say about this company!

    Cons

    As I mentioned in the "Pros" section: I literally have nothing bad to say about this company! If you land a job with FedEx Express, you'll be in good hands.

    I have been working at Fedex Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good pay ($13.35/hr starting) - Good workout lifting heavy packages - Excellent benefits - Ability to move up to higher paying positions

    Cons

    - Poor hours (4am-8am) - Too many people think they are in charge and conflict and confusion ensue - Part-time usually 18-19 hours - Poor management of tasks, training, and operations

    Advice to Management

    Fire those that don't pull their own weight, put those that think they are in charge back in their place, and get your priorities straight and pay attention to what's going on and what is needed.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Room for growth. Niche industry.

    Cons

    Due to the specialty market that caters to product, available industry experienced applicants are the exception. As a result, new employees tend to not know product first hand, and are spoon-fed info. This leads to potential for stagnant product growth.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more management from within the industry in order to increase the propensity for different views outside of the standard 'traxxas' view.

    Pros

    Great company atmosphere, good company ethics and values, been with FedEx 5 years and have very minimum complaints.

    Cons

    All depends on individual management. Simply put, if you have a bad manager, you will have a bad time with this company. If you have a great manager, some days FedEx wont even feel like work.

    Advice to Management

    Give a better, more thorough screening on who becomes a manager and re-evaluate managers at least once a year. Weed out the bad managers.
