Fedex Ground Cares About Their EmployeesMay 19, 2023 - Package Handler in North Salt Lake, UTRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Paid every week. Outstanding employee appreciation. Fedex pays a handful of employees just to do employee recognition. They give out free Gatorade often and there's a snack cart they would occasionally bring around. They ordered various meals each night for a week and they made sure all employees were included. Supervisors are friendly and make time for each employee. Everyone helps one another and works as a well-organized unit.
Lots of heavy lifting when Chewy and Purple Mattresses arrive.Continue reading

Good People, Poor ManagementMay 25, 2023 - Fed Ex Ground Package HandlerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have a good relationship with my manager and my fellow employees, the pay rate is relatively generous for the job I do, and the job is good exercise (I don't need to go to the gym). Also, the work atmosphere is pretty good, especially compared to other shipping companies.
There is no incentive to work hard because everyone gets the same base pay, although your pay rate can reach $19.25 if you have worked there long enough. The warehouse relies on part-time workers and a part-time worker has to apply to a full time position on their own. Managers can move workers to different positions within the warehouse, but do not have the time or the resources to help you advance within the company. Also, you can only access your employee account using one of their on-site computers because they have a closed network.Continue reading

Unethical/Illegal/IncompetentApr 23, 2023 - Maintenance Technician in Township of HamiltonRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The Pay seems to be on par for similar positions around the state. Some good co workers Work mostly unsupervised to get PM’s and projects complete
Unfortunately the building has bred some bad managers (some who have been fired) for stealing, unethical business practices, workplace violence, discrimination, sexual harassment, and incompetency. The maintenance manager that’s still there is an inexperienced, uneducated, hostile, sexist and racist nightmare of a person and you will have no choice but to deal with him. HR is not there for you and they won’t help. They are there strictly to make sure the company can’t be held liable for the actions of their managers. Basically, the only way they’d help you os if you had enough evidence against a manager to file a slam dunk lawsuit and win. If not, and you do complain, you will be desolated to the point you want to quit. The maintenance shop has been a revolving door since this manager took his position. I’ve watched 10 people cycle in and out of there in one year. That is unheard of. These aren’t low paying, unskilled labor positions. They’re career positions, so to have that kind of retention rate is laughable. But he’s untouchable and FedEx is terrified to even reprimand him. I’ll let you guess why. STAY AWAYContinue reading

Decent Evening Side GigMar 6, 2023 - Package Handler in Manchester, NHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Most of the Managers are reasonable (won't micro-manage small breaks, etc) and approachable as long as you're assertive with your questions and communications. Most coworkers are easy to work with and focused on finishing the task at hand. The crew generally go about their own business with little drama (though there's a handful of characters out there), but you can make friendly working relations with a little effort. Better than the conditions at Amazon according to nearly all my co-workers that were employed there as well...
Like most shipping centers of this size, operations are often chaotic and disorganized. Upper management is cheap, keeping around a lot of broken / poorly-maintained equipment with band-aid fixes when there's a safety issue, and perpetually understaffing the place. Very little communication about shift times (being sent home after 2 hours on random days, while other times suddenly being added to the schedule less than 24 hours ahead, with expectations that you'll change around all you other plans on a dime). You can get excused for some of those days off if you're (again) very persistent about communications with the managers!Continue reading

great !!May 26, 2023 - Loader/Unloder in Grand Prairie, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook

ou get 3-5 hour shifts with varying load sizes. Management is amazing when you fully communicate with them. It's fast paced so you don't get bored, the pay is ..Continue reading

Manager to Employee relationsApr 25, 2023 - Part Time Package Handler in North Haven, CTRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Sense of accomplishment, do more get more eventually
If you’re a hard worker meaning you clearly do more than most then don’t count on getting promoted anytime soon. You will have made yourself too important to ensure various performance and quality numbers management is graded on be too critical to keep you where you’re at in order to maintain certain performance numbers of not you per se, but your management. You could choose to goof off and only be sent home for the day and I’ve seen worse attempts to dodge your work responsibilities, but this is how it is.Continue reading

Good part-time job to get hired quickly.May 24, 2023 - Part Time Package Handler in Santa Fe Springs, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Easy and quick to get hired during busy season. Good hours during busy seasons. Benefits after a certain period.
Performance review during a light day where even if you get all the boxes perfectly you still miss number. Manager can micro manage small package placement taking up tons of time while others simply put them in a bag.
