    I worked at FedEx Ground part-time

    Pros

    You Get paid every week,

    Cons

    It gets really hot in the summer, and the heat sits inside the building even long after the sun has set.

    Advice to Management

    Get some air conditioning in the building, besides just the office sections of it.

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

    Pros

    The hours are great if it is a second job because they will mostly be late at night or before the sun comes up.

    Cons

    A really big con is the whole anti-union views they have.
    Not a con to everyone, but the hours go down throughout the week as the number of packages decreases, which makes sense.

    Advice to Management

    Pay should be more competitive so that people don't keep leaving to work for the competition.
