    Pros

    Great Seasonal employment. Hours increase as you approach the holiday. Long day worked night shift. Worked as a team unit. During the warm nights great outdoor job.

    Cons

    Great seasonal employer. Winter months extremely cold at night to work. Managers were inexperienced and limited in knowledge of the job. Did not know how to assists workers or oversee each assignment per night.

    Advice to Management

    Increase knowledge short of managers and took whomever was available. Not qualified to be managers and over see groups of individuals.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits plus tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Promotions are seniority based for the most part, so this may be frustrating for a new-hire.

    Pros

    For the most part, a people orientated company that is very customer-centric. A great group of amazing employees in a let's get it done atmosphere. Extensive deployment of technology to make the operation work, with solid vision at the top (Fred Smith).

    Cons

    Can be a bit insular, especially in the operating groups. The good old boy network still exists and a lot of middle-managers have risen on that aspect instead of their talent. A gradual decline of benefits over the years in conjunction with patronizing change communication justifying actions taken without any facts to back it up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to SFA and get the real picture of those that manage by intimidation and then use a lot of smoke-and-mirror to cover up their 'style'.

    Pros

    FedEx offers great benefits to its part time employees and the wage is competitive to other shipping companies.

    Cons

    Hours vary from station to station, some couriers average less than 17.5 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Send more time of meeting with employees to discuss issues that are seen on road.

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits Mon-Fri for some and Tues-Sat for most. Holidays off. Two weeks paid vacation a year even for part timers. A very good place to work as a second job, they work extremely well with those who have other jobs. Completely paid for CDL training. Overall I am proud to work there.

    Cons

    Hours are 4am until 9am or so depends on when you arrive back. The sick policy is a joke. You have days and get paid for those days but it will count against you. Working the sort can be physically demanding. Driver turnover is happening at a fast rate. As a RTD it takes about 15 years to top out of pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on less turnover.
