    I have been working at FedEx Ground part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good, work is easy to learn and hrs are good. Most supervisors so far have been good. The benefits are great and so far compared to any other job I have had, this one beats them all. If you work part time, you work 5 hrs a night but they most of the time, almost every day ask me to stay over. So you have the option to stay for more hrs.

    Cons

    Management like any other job seem stuck up and lazy. They just throw you in there and you have to scan 400 packages per hr. The boxes some times weigh too much and me being a small girl and only 5'2 some times it is impossible to lift these boxes. you can ask for help, but it always seems like they act like you are asking too much. Some times employees are rude as well.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your employees a little more. Some times that can make a huge difference. Notice them and their hard work. Let them know they are doing good. Personally that's what really motivates me to work hard most of the time. When you work hard and it goes unnoticed, you feel like you'll never get anywhere.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The main thing that keeps me employed at FedEx Ground is the positive team of people. I have worked with management teams at two different locations across the country and both teams were supportive and listened. My boss now is highly supportive of my personal and professional development. Also, benefits and internal personal development education are top notch.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities from package handler to clerk are relatively abundant. Above that gets harder due to people staying in the job for many years at a time (though that shows the loyalty of the workers).

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

    Pros

    4-6 hour work days, excellent pay, quality training program, benefits even for part-time employees, 401K.

    Cons

    Either early morning or night shifts, advancement is slim (only happens when someone leaves the company).

    Advice to Management

    Each manager is different, it simply depends on which location you're at.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love my job especially my shift. I work the graveyard if you want to call it that. 3:00am until around 1:00pm.

    Cons

    Its difficult to run my operation when my employees(package handlers) don't show up for work. We end up running behind schedule not getting our drivers out on time.

    Advice to Management

    I have none at this time. I'm already part of a committee to find out why we have this issues with our package handlers.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started at $11.00, but I've received a base pay raise of $1.20 since my hire date in 2014. Including annual/experience/seniority raises of $2.50, plus I get another raise upon my 3rd year of 50 cents.

    Not to mention they offer $2,500 Part-time and $5,000 Full-Time tuition reimbursement, which I call (stupid money). Because who wouldn't take advantage of this opportunity since you basically go for free.

    Cons

    I've had a very good experience so far and I can tell you it's not a bad position for being 23 . However, I guess if I had to make a counter statement, it can be difficult to impress senior management for a promotion. We run with about 1,400 employees and have between 2 and 3 dozen manager spots open per year. As long as you have good attendance, getting an interview is insanely easy. But satisfying the wants and needs of hierarchy to get a promotion is tough. Seeing less experienced and lower seniority applicants get promoted isn't always motivating. But hey, it's an excuse to work on verbal and articulation skills.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring should be based more on seniority. Several employees have been working there between 5 and 10 years, and haven't been considered.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work five days a week, no need to call in. Just show up. Work can be frustrating though because of a minimum number of people.

    Cons

    Job is very fast paced. Seems like they just want to push you out to pay as minimum hours as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Quit all the union bashing. UPS drivers and workers make much more. Offer what you do without criticizing others for what they have. Sounds pretty much like you're fearful of UPS and the Post Office.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This job has been extremely helpful being a student and tuition reimbursement has been a great help as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes hours for the week can be on the shorter side (12-14), but they allow you to pick up shifts as well.
