    Pros

    The Benefits and Retirement pension plan are above average, compared to average employers in retail and industrial manufacturing. Nevertheless, USPS and UPS has much better benefits than FedEx Express. Fast paced business, day goes by fast. Meet great people on the road.

    Cons

    If you get hurt at FedEx Express and become disabled, the company basically throws you out to the gutter. They send you off to workers compensation where they hire an independent company by the name of Sedgwick. Sedgwick is not an INSURANCE COMPANY, they are not binded by New York State rules, which means they are free to do anything they want against you. Fedex has NO disability pension. Takes a loooooog time to move up within FedEx Express. FedEx is the same old story like other employers, it is who you KNOW to move up!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everybody who works for FedEx the same way. This is in regards to couriers who work hard and get treated wrongfully, compared to couriers who DO NOT! work hard and treated not wrongfully.

    Pros

    the people and the freedom of make my on mistakes and learning by them.

    Cons

    pic a manger on his or her abilities to deal with people because that's what make the company run to make a profit. they go on how much schooling had if you can do the administration work. If you don't have good people skills then your people wont do the job to the best of their abilities. A good manger wants there people to exceed .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont go in there and start changing this because your new to the group and you need to learn the people and see what you could do to help them to exceed in the operation.

    Pros

    The pay rate for this part-time package handler is very good, in my opinion. They offer health insurance and other good benefits.

    Cons

    There is a diverse workforce, and there are many people with poor work ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start having performance reviews and reward your higher performers more money per hour.

    Pros

    Great starting pay and benefits. There is room for advancement. Pretty cool working on a plane and learning how to use ground support equipment to load and unload planes.

    Cons

    This job is physically demanding. Work is nonstop until u get a break. Breaks are unpaid so you could be on break for hours til the plane arrives. Longest I've experienced was 3 1/2 hrs. There is no set time of when you end work. You don't get to leave until all work is done. Sometimes you get off early. As a part timer the hrs weren't there. Averaged about 22 hrs a week. Awesome starting pay but still wouldn't be enough to support a family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers fed us or threw bbq's once in a while.

    Pros

    Excellent company that has stood the test of time and shows no signs of wavering. Very fair, most interviews for internal jobs are point-based so that personal opinion does not play a part in who is hired.

    Cons

    Start at the bottom and be prepared to work hard for all that you earn. Everybody working with the company has been there for a long time, don't hold your breath while trying to earn seniority.
