I worked at FedEx Freight full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent pay and benefits. Good vacation schedule that is easy to manage as far as needing time off and taking it in smaller increments. Equipment is also well maintained with the exception of some of the older trailers.

Cons

Targets and goals constantly changing from top down. Drivers as well as Supervisors and Dispatchers constantly have to readjust their "plans of attack" based on the ever changing performance demands.

Advice to Management

Accept more of the "valid" driver input. Those guys have spent decades in the trenches and know how to run their routes efficiently based on the geographic and customer demands. Enforce better execution by the dock workers of the load planning as far as correctly loading trailers is concerned. Given the performance pressure that the drivers carry, they need to be positioned every day to be able to unload their deliveries as fluidly as possible. The drivers' performances just about solely hinge on the way their trailers are coordinated and loaded. Supervisor planning is only as good as the execution.
