    I have been working at FedEx Ground part-time

    Pros

    You will get good work out working from this company. There is always lots of amounts of lifting, carrying, and sorting out boxes witch can be intense sometimes. But this company will provide you with a good work ethic.

    Cons

    This company might have you working really early in the morning like at 3 am. It might not be for everybody.

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

    Pros

    Responsive managers who respects everyone
    Overtime is possible depending on volume and your work ethic
    Cultivates a culture of safety
    Encouraged to openly communicate your opinions with management to improve operations
    Cooperative staff
    Opportunities to advance in different positions and learn additional skills
    Health care benefits and 401k for a part time position
    Weekly paycheck and can apply for direct deposit

    Cons

    Hours varies depending on volume so your paycheck fluctuates. Some days you work three hours and some eight, usually during peak season (holidays).

    Advice to Management

    Sustain leadership styles toward management rather than managing, meaning allow workers to voice their opinions rather than managing them by not communicating with them. Keep cultivating positive relationships and host events that motivates us to work efficiently.

    I worked at FedEx Ground full-time

    Pros

    I put in 1800 miles a week and saw some of the most beautiful views

    Cons

    I was employed by a subcontractor, so even though I was working an average of 70 hours a week, I had NO benefits

    Advice to Management

    Stop using subcontractors to get your delivery drivers. ALL of the drivers end up getting screwed over... Under paid and HIGHLY overworked, because you have no minimum compensation guidelines for the contractors to abide by.
