    Great company to work for especially if you are right out of high school and are looking for a FedEx Handler position.

    Non Dot Package Handler (Current Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsGreat company environment! The company really cares about it's employees and the pay is relatively fair. The more you request to do their is some potential for more hours for permanent part-time employees. The permanent part-time employees at FedEx Express are able to receive health, vision, dental insurances as well participating in 401(K) with company matching, and there is also potential for being vested in the companies pension plan.

    ConsSlow advancement (Takes 1-year + to start moving into different jobs). Limited hours per shift. Limited full-time jobs available. You have to be there a long time (12-14+ years) to be eligible for full-time jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing and keep caring about your employees that is a major plus. Additionally, see what can be done to increase the full-time job opportunities.

    FedEx Express

    Package Handler (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsFull benefits to part time employees. Plenty of room for growth within the company as FedEx promotes within the company.

    ConsSlow and busy seasons so adjust accordingly if you're looking for a certain amount of hours. Night shift is the most common and takes some getting used to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing a great job.

    Excellent First-Time Job Experience as an Intern

    Intern II (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsVery easygoing company culture. I was hired as an Intern for a year, performing junior BI development and help desk duties at the Latin America branch. It's easy to reach out and discuss support issues with members of other departments outside IT. The team members are a joy to work with, and working on projects is very structured and organized. Management follows and enforces SDLC and QDM to deliver successfully to their clients. Interns are typically paid, go through training with a mentor, & receive a 401k pension account.

    ConsThe salary was be modest, and no other benefits besides the pension account were offered. Chances of advancement are hit and miss regardless of performance & due to the company hiring capability (at the time).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent Organization for a Long-term Career

    Contract Recruiter (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsGreat culture, energetic employees, fantastic growth opportunities. Truly a place that listens to your suggestions and hungers for innovative ideas.

    ConsFalls a little short on employee retention efforts. Operations Management needs better training on employee relations and provided more room to make decisions that balance the best interest of the company, employee, and customer. People First is a primary value of the organization. The purple promise cannot thrive if employees are seen as a dime-a-dozen as many Ops and Sr. Ops managers view them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at revising the Affirmative Action Plan to allow conversion of contracted employees to full time regular employees. Sometimes internal talent is not the best and the current process is too long and cumbersome to obtain the best external talent. Often the best talent is your contract employee, but without a method to convert them, you can loose out on your best candidate and innovative ideas that will propel the organization into the next decade and beyond.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good place to work

    Senior Process Improvement Analyst (Current Employee)
    Oakland, CA

    ProsFast paced, dynamic enivorment that challenges your skills and compensates fairly for a demanding career. People first policy that is practiced within reasonable limits, heavy emphasis on service to the customer along with sharing profits across the board when finacial conditions support makes FedEx a balanced company to work for. Standard time-off policies, but as a 24/7 global transportation company, network & customer conditions take precedence, espeically if you are associated with any of the operating units. Positive workplace conditions with a lot of talented people working hard towards a common cause that creates a sense of team. A nice balance of employees that have worked their way up the chain along with well educated professionals, as well as a diverse population makes for a comfortable environment.

    ConsAs stated before, the network and customers take front seat to your peronal plans, but any due diligence would reveal that is a staple of transportation companies. Pay scales are varied throughout the company and at times job responsibilities do not match compensation. A structured job/salary system does not provide enough flexibility for career progression if you wish to move into other job areas and do not have all the preferred qualifications. Current company leadership is stil influenced by Fred Smith (founder), however as he moves further away from 'watching over the operations' concerns on the direction of FedEx begining to creep into view. A lot of political struggling at higher levels, with divisional SVPs not practicing their preaching of cooperation between all groups. One significant area of concern is the dilution of benefits as the years roll on. And as is typical of FedEx, there is some good and some bad. Strong retiree benefits make it worthwhile to stay for the duration, like retiree medical, dental, vision, and discount shipping. An active 401k match program is helpful if you take advantage, however pension and medical benefits have eroded in several phases and is making the total package less generous.
