    I worked at FedEx Ground part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - awesome coworkers and managers, everyone was super chill
    - basically getting paid to work out
    - great benefits
    - awesome work environment
    - weekly pay
    - recognition for hard work
    - promote from within as long as you are up to the task and show your strengths

    Cons

    - usually only 3-4 hours a day
    - 3am-8am shift sucks, is very hard on body, makes living life/having a second job tough because you're always exhausted
    - the work is very grueling, they will work you as hard as they can even if it is hard for you
    - the job gets extremely stressful
    - warehouse is hot
    -easy to overwork yourself, must eat beforehand and hydrate on and off the job
    - benefits don't kick in until after a year for part time
    - not enough pay for what it is worth (this job is literal manual labor)
