    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement
    Credit Union
    Discounts
    Life insurance
     Working on both shifts

    Cons

    People not motivated to work
     waiting for raise
    HR's carelessness and disrespect
     Double Standards
    High turn over rate
    Being disrespected by staff in authority positions (insulted by words and race bias)
    Not being able to make ends meet on entry level position
     Company care about budget goals instead
     of work force
    Being talk to or dealt without professional respect , being handled like a package
    Being reliable to job and job not being reliable to you.
    Time being wasted and the bill of rights being a mockery to the FedEx Corporation
     all they care about is position being filled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The philly ramp needs to be overhauled
     to sift out unmotivated employees and hold team leads accountable for being leaders but my overall experience from 1-10 is a 6 the company is organized but some employees don't take serious their responsibility and the purple promise .

    Pros

    Good benefits and hourly pay. Nice and challenging if you are the type of person that is looking for that in a job. Equipment is pretty good too. Company is usually for the most part healthy.

    Cons

    Taking a turn for the worst, company now tends to "spend a dollar to save a nickel." There's constant pressure on management that trickles down to other employees. Expect to get written up more, the harder you work. Way too many policies that get in the way of job performance. The minute the company can't please stock holders expect hours to get slashed. Company would rather deal with high turnover rather then keep its current employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More towards upper management. Most OPS managers, that are close to the couriers know how it is.......Let the courier do their job and please their customers. Stop trying to punish and dictate everything from pieces of paper and an office chair. Learn how it truly is on the road.....

    Pros

    Everything seems to be just fine so far. Fair pay. Don't work you too hard. Benefits. Willing to train you so you get more hours and can move up.

    Cons

    You have to call to see what time you go in. No set schedule. Really corporate. No latitude. Also no cell phones allowed in the Hub

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax a little

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, even though health insurance coverage has been declining year over year. Many opportunities for advancement or job changes and the ability to transfer practically anywhere in the world. Job requires a quick work pace, analytical thinking and can be very physical. Definitely not a job for everyone.

    Cons

    Micro-management of all aspects of the business and unrealistic productivity expectations in every department. Company P-S-P policy, People - Service - Profit, sometimes gets reversed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the original core values of the company and put customers and employees first.

    Stable but too Top Heavy

    I have been working at Fedex Express full-time

    Pros

    Very stable company that is making good profits. Haven't felt concerned about being let go even through hard times.

    Cons

    Management structure is extremely top heavy, Way too many corporate departments demanding sometimes competing expectations from their managers. There is no entity 'protecting' managers from being overworked because so many decision come from the VERY top and even upper management can't protect managers. This structure often leaves managers feeling like hourly employees because we don't get to actually manage when you look at the time is left after completing the multitude of required tasks that are expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the Managers make decisions about how to run their individual operations. If they don't perform at that point, then hold them accountable. As it is now, it is difficult for you to hold managers accountable because you are micro-managing our jobs.

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

    Pros

    Your office is in the streets. No cubicle BS here!
    Benefits are awesome.
    Great people to work with. Ive met and developed great, long lasting friendships for over 10 years
    Clients always thrilled to see the PURPLE AND ORANGE pull up on their driveways and pop up in their offices.
    Great room for advancement, granted if management is you thing.
    The ability to relocate is key for us drivers. Relocation a MAJOR PLUS!

    Cons

    Management needs to amp up their people and social skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to basics and fundamentals of business and ethics in the workplace. Be more FOR THE PEOPLE rather than OF THE COMPANY. Remember, your drivers pay YOUR bills. So treat them like gold!
