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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Great place to get a CDL. They pay you while you learn. I started on the dock loading trucks and made it into the driver training program two months later. If you are motivated and a hard worker you should able to do the same. They make you hustle, but they really do put safety first.

    Cons

    You have to put in some time to get any kind of a choice on your route. Before you bid on a route you just go wherever they send you. Your start time can vary too.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good stable company

    Cons

    Too much favoritism , internal job opportunities are not offered, just given to their favorite employees

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, careful to not play favorites . We need new mgmt. in LVS svc ctr. People do wrong and mgmt. turns a blind eye.
