    Pros

    Great pay benefits keep going up every.

    Cons

    FedEx freight in Kent WA. Is the worst.The local management are a bunch of idiot's they constantly lie to their employees. The regional HR people really are not any better. And god for bid you ever get hurt on the job you get thrown away like an old shoe after 10 years on the job. FedEx freight discriminates against workers and WILL not offer reasonable accommodation to employee's. Read my book "FedEx freight beyond the surface". It tell it all it's available through amazon.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out.

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

    Pros

    Generous pay, quarterly raises, as many hours as you want, left alone as long as you're fast enough and don't break freight.

    Cons

    Busted forklifts blamed on dock workers (why punish us? More freight gets damaged if our fork's brakes don't work and our tires are shredded)

    Advice to Management

    Fix the forks, chill out on average bills per hour.

    Pros

    This company is going to be around forever and it's a descent place to work. Great benefits and 401K match.

    Cons

    Hours are the biggest draw back for this company...I currently work 2am to 11am which is rough on the family life.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box, don't be afraid to delegate, and ensure each center is properly staffed to handle day-to-day operations.

    I worked at FedEx Freight part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and bonus structure; satisfying work; most of the city and OTR drivers were professional, knowledgeable, and friendly

    Cons

    Health benefits package became markedly more expensive after 2013; dockworkers being part-time made it hard to retain and motivate them in both speed and damage reduction (stacking, securing, and protecting freight properly)---if they were full time they would have invested themselves more in the work.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Ducker is giving staying power to the freight division---thanks for solidifying FXF's strengths and correcting its weaknesses.
