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

    Pros

    Part-time hours offered give one an opportunity to make extra cash when having a full time job.

    Cons

    No union representation. Workers are brainwashed by the company/management in to believing a union is bad for them. The way they are working and treating the package handlers in the warehouse I can see why they dont won't to work with a union. Team leaders are useless! They do not help their team members. The team leaders are not team players, they are strictly for themselves. Team leaders are lazy,tacky, and messy. Workers are forced to sort packages, place packages on pallets decently, and wrap pallets at four different stages all while team leaders stand around, or kiss up to management. Not much time to drink a beverage while you're working.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of team leaders! Team leaders are lowering the moral in certain zones. They should be properly trained. Send the team leader to a special training class to teach them how to empower their team members. Team leaders need to understand the importance of empowering, coaching, mentoring, and inspiring each one of their team members. Team leaders should be responsible for the wrapping of pallets, they not doing anything else or make it a temporary assignment to two people per line a month or so prior to peak season especially since the team leaders believe they are now to good to get their hands dirty.

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

    Pros

    everybody is willing to help each other, the managers are always there to assist and listen to concerns

    Cons

    teamwork is important, and depending whose present work can be much less enjoyable and much more difficult. Also, every building has their own "vibe" and things get done a certain way with certain shifts. its difficult to work together when people from other buildings/shifts insist on doing things their way instead of just going with the flow already present.
