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

    Pros

    - awesome coworkers and managers, everyone was super chill
    - basically getting paid to work out
    - great benefits
    - awesome work environment
    - weekly pay
    - recognition for hard work
    - promote from within as long as you are up to the task and show your strengths

    Cons

    - usually only 3-4 hours a day
    - 3am-8am shift sucks, is very hard on body, makes living life/having a second job tough because you're always exhausted
    - the work is very grueling, they will work you as hard as they can even if it is hard for you
    - the job gets extremely stressful
    - warehouse is hot
    -easy to overwork yourself, must eat beforehand and hydrate on and off the job
    - benefits don't kick in until after a year for part time
    - not enough pay for what it is worth (this job is literal manual labor)

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

    Pros

    Great co workers on my first day and management too. Great teamwork atmosphere . It didn’t feel like I was the “new guy.” I was told if I can stick it out for a few months, u can be promoted quickly . $14.10 per hour to start

    Cons

    The 4a to 7:30a didn’t bother me today . I know it can for some but I felt good . Hate we can’t use our phones but it’s a safety ad communication thing so I understand . It would just be even nicer to have music in my ears as I work .

    I worked at FedEx Ground full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Simple job just fast paced. The quicker you are at learning routes and addresses the easier it becomes.

    Cons

    Long Days. Would have to show up at 7 to the Facility but you couldn't leave the Facility until 8:30/9. If you had a short day you couldn't clock out until 5/6. On average expect 11hr-12hr days. The pay is a flat rate per week so on average 60hrs in a 5 day period for about $650 up to $900 with experience.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. Allow scanners and policies for more flexibility and reward if you get done quicker.
