I worked at FedEx Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay and benefits as well as opportunities for advancement and even relocation if so desired.
Good tractors which are well maintained.

Cons

After over 10 years with a good record, I was dismissed after a Worker's Comp injury left me with a less then 5% disability. So long career.

Advice to Management

Your employees are people, not replaceable robots. More emphasis on people and less on profit margin would make for a much better work environment for all.

    I have been working at FedEx Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I would say their Benefits are "ok" and they pay is satisfactory, could be better for the hard work they company should give raises based on performance.

    Cons

    The office managers/supervisors are very rude and do not know typical people skills! They yell and holler at their employees, the drivers are like little yo-yo to them. Management throws fits, screaming fits, it is terrible! But if there is a POLL coming up (the employees rate management) then the whole office does a complete turn around, and are so polite and considerate, it is so obvious to the drivers that a Poll must be around the corner! Not a good environment to work in!
    Then you are expected to load your trucks in the morning (if the loading dock gets behind) and on occasion you are expected to work the dock when you return (if the dock gets behind).
    The fuel pumps; everyone is expected to fuel their own truck (ok, no problem with that), but typically their is usually only one pump working.
    Truck Maintenance; they hire "maintenance workers" but none of them know how to work on a truck, I have seen a truck taken to a shop to repair a simple maintenance issue.
    All around the worse environment
    Management just cares about THEIR NUMBERS and not their employees!

    Advice to Management

    Take some Anger management and People Skills classes!

    I have been working at FedEx Freight part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, great people, and very flexible. The supervisor and manager are very helpful with any need you may have.

    Cons

    Very cold, when it says extreme weather conditions they mean it.
