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

    Pros

    This review is for Fedex freight! not express or ground I see so many negative reviews and you find out the employees are working for a contractor with Fedex ground that’s why the reviews are bad!
    they’re working for a contractor with no benefits and Low pay so please keep that in mind when you read these reviews.
    FedEx ground and custom critical divisions of Fedex use strictly contractors for package delivery and their linehaul runs, why this is i do not know, but I would say do not work for contractor unless you’re desperate for a job.

    Get hired on as a company employee with freight or express and you’ll find that Fedex is a great place to work with good pay and benefits, paid vacations and holidays and paid sick time.

    Cons

    Management where I have worked has been pretty good, not perfect of course but I have found if you do your job they are there to help you, if you’re a slacker and are lazy those of the ones seem to have problems with management, you just have to watch out for those few employees that are back stabbers and Are always negative and try to bring you down no matter the situation.

    some people just can’t be happy so ignore them if possible. These individuals seem to be more worried about making other people’s lives miserable at work than actually just doing their job and minding their own business.

    Advice to Management

    Best advice I can give to management is try to weed out the bad seeds that are bringing everybody down.
    I know it may be difficult but those are the people that are the troublemakers and instigators and need to be fired.

    Pros

    Fedex freight is very flexible when it come time away for work to attend to your personal life. you have some good days where you may have a short day or night and you have some bad day and night where you may work 14 hours. but for the most part if you can balance work and family life. 401k is ok. they match 3.5% if you do a minimum of 6%. They also give you PTO and Vacation time. they offer you a lot of discount on everything you could think of. and the pay is very good. $28.83 per hour and .68 cent per mile after you reach top pay which takes about 3 Years.

    Cons

    Working at night if you are new as a road driver, and some city drivers have to work at night when they are new. the pension plan the offer sucks. the are not union, so your job is not protected. they want drivers to often work on the dock to help with the loading and unloading of freight. They alway increase employees insurance rates after they give the employees a pay increase. they often like to micro manage employees on the clock and try to keep Overtime to a minimum.

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay, Bonuses, Employee Appreciation

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a good 'ol boy system in place for advancement and full-time opportunities, great evaluations and hard work are taken for granted/not rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Use more merit based qualities for employment advancement instead of favoritism, require the value of honesty in your leadership the FedEx brand deserves better than for their business to be run on pettiness

    I have been working at FedEx Freight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They bring you in and let you see the operation at work. Give you time to see if it would be good fit and then give you an offer! Drug Test, Background Check, Proof that you completed college, Checked Past Employer Feedback...This is all good because you know the team they hirer and put together is qualified and can pull their own weight!

    Cons

    The process is not organized by a checklist each day. Each day I got a phone call or email about the next step in the hiring process. It took longer then I had anticipated.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't worked at the company long enough to give advice to any management.
