Pros

Benefits, good people and co-workers, recognizable and honest. Great way to start a career with FedEx. Never a dull moment.

Cons

It is a dock environment so you get the sweltering heat and humidity in summer and the near freezing conditions in winter. In my experience, little is paid attention to when it comes to employee comfort and the relation to their work.

Advice to Management

Upper management could use a lot of work when it comes to the approach used with employees. It seems to me that a little empathy could go a long way to improve morale.

    I have been working at FedEx SmartPost full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rapidly growing division of FedEx Ground. FedEx SmartPost is expanding across the country.

    Cons

    Long peak season hours (November - December). 12 hour work days while working 6 out of 7 days a week. (company gives a portion of the days back in January). No structured break time for production floor managers....you eat on the fly and generally work straight through your shift.
