I worked at FedEx as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Fedex is a good workplace, pleasant, clean and very well organised. We had free coffee, coffee machine, they also used to deliver fresh fruit every week. Health insurance with Bupa was also on a plus side.

Cons

Too narrow minded when it came to changes. Work was monotonous, we were working almost as robots, not allowed talking much during work. No Internet use apart from during breaks. Overtime was not voluntary, we had to stay till workload was done.

Advice to Management

Good management, perhaps would be better if it was sometimes a bit more open minded to changes.

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

    Pros

    NONE, Unless you're desperate for a job.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime, no allowance for working large and complicated files. Poor raises... They put me in 3 specialty groups by the time I'd been there 6 months. There was only 1 other person that did all that I did and he had been there 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a chance at real raises and a life. I got a good review and a 28 cent raise. It's not my responsibility if you have a large volume coming in and not enough entry writers to complete entries. As far as your 42 per hr completed??? I have ZERO control over what those foreigners put in their paperwork. GET A CLUE!
