    Pros

    Great work place envirment. Always moving with a great group of people as a team. One of my favorite places I've been and even at part time, you get full time benefits. Can find a better place to have worked part time and feel so apart of the work force. Put in your time and you can make it a great corrier.

    Cons

    Scheduling Can be a bit crazy depending on the time of the year. Vacation is like any place, you have to earn time and putting in time goes back senioriy. Almost everything works by seniority which is kinda of a double edge sword. TIme is everything, be on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a good experience though I wish It could have been full time when I was there. Managment was very respecable.

    I have been working at Fedex Express part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, although not as good as they used to be. Health, Dental and Vision insurance, 401K, paid vacations and sick days, company-paid pension plan are among the benefits even for part-timers.

    Cons

    Raises for most of the lower-tiered employees have been pretty rotten over the past few years. The health insurance premiums keep going up but the pay doesn't. Job progression can be hindered because even though you may have more job experience in a certain area, someone with more seniority, but no experience at that job, can outbid you for the a position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognizing that ALL your employees, not just the top tiers, need raises to keep up with the cost of living. This year the stockholders got a 30% increase in dividends while most employees got a 2% raise.

    Pros

    They really do value their employees.

    Cons

    It's all about seniority not always the work you do. And as a driver you are expected to rush rush rush exceed expectations even in bad weather but stay safe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep valuing your employees but understand that safety comes first when delivering product and that may mean some things don't arrive in time.

    Pros

    Fair pay,excellent benefits and quite a bit of paid time off.

    Cons

    Once you meet your productivity goals Mgmnt. continues to increase your goals until they are unattainable,thus affecting your review and ultimately your pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    realize your ground level employees have personal lives just like you.Try to be more thoughtful and compassionate when making decisions that may possibly have adverse effects on your subordinates.everyone knows change is inevitable, it is often how the message is delivered.

    Worked At invoicing for LATAM Caribbean - it's a nice company to work for but the department was short in personnel so everyone was overloaded and working under a lot of pressure.

    Pros

    Stable company with good benefits. They don't seem to fire people so if you are ok with not getting a significant raise in pay you could just chill there forever (lots of people do)

    Cons

    Not enough people in th department to handle the huge amount of work load. The computer system is dated. Low pay and not much room to grow since they are outsourcing a lot of departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve technology in systems to try to make up for the understaff

    I have been working at Fedex Express full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    OK pay, but what makes Express (NOT Ground, or Freight or Office, just Express) are the flight benefits. No one talks about them and they are awesome. $50 RT anywhere Jet Blue flies. $250 RT on Delta to Maui and back. We use the hell out of them. If they didn't have this I woulda been gone a long time ago.

    Cons

    It's like playing whack a mole trying to figure out what the emphasis of the month is going to be. Sometimes it's on-time performance, other times it's GAP time, others are hours on the clock. it's whatever Memphis is freaking out about this month. If you can ignore it, you'll be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless you work in Memphis your options are very very limited. Usual progression is Handler to Courier and that's it. A small small few who go on to be an Ops Manager.
