I worked at Fedex Express part-time (More than a year)

Pros

I joined FedEx Express mainly to pay for tuition and living expenses during college. I had no intention of making this job a career, but I got the most out of it. A lot of people with whom I worked were in the same boat so I was able to relate to them. Working at spot 10 especially is quite a cushy job.

Cons

Moving around boxes isn't exactly a dream job. But it was decent pay.

Advice to Management

I think the management is a little strict when is comes to giving out letters for dropping containers while driving tugs. Sometimes it's not fault of the driver because other people are in a hurry to get the containers out and bring new ones in. Thankfully, I never dropped a container.

    I worked at Fedex Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - A well oiled machine for tracking and delivering any range of goods
    - Comprehensive medical and educational benefits
    - Flexible internal hiring system that allows you to transfer to any station

    FedEx is great place to learn operational efficiency and customer satisfaction using data driven metrics.

    Cons

    - Fast paced environment requiring constant care to avoid injury to self or others
    - Ongoing management training is shallow and academic

    FedEx went through a Pay-for-Performance phase that diminished camaraderie within the ranks. A blend of Pay-for-Performance and Profit Sharing may have had a better outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find ways to make couriers real owners of their routes and managers of their work groups. Thank you for offering a safe and fairly compensated work place.
