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

    Pros

    Reliable work, ok pay, cool co workers, no body breathing down your neck every 5 seconds. You get to meet some nice people

    Cons

    Too much work, no benefits, managers have no respect for drivers time. I lose about 30 or 40 dollars a week waiting to be dispatch due to incompetent warehouse workers. Contractors as well. They dump responsibility on other drivers by adding more stops to your route because someone calls out. When your salary pay, many things are in favor of wasting your time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to your hubs and stop pretending like us drivers are not their because we are and if it wasn't for us you wouldn't be in. Business. Also I see a lot of safety 'tips, here's something to think about, stop giving an inhuman amount of work and maby drivers will feel just a little in patient and drive safer....

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Mindless work; you don't really have to think much or deal with customers

    Cons

    Packager handlers are rewarded for unsatisfactory work; weak links are expected to be subsidized by everyone else; some employees handle far far less volume than others (I average 700-900 packages per day, others handle 80-10); Managers worry too much about efficiency without knowing how much more difficult they make the job; instead of listening to employee concerns, manager rattle off platitudes about "positive attitudes", and "slow and steady wins the race", without actually having the experience of handling such back-breaking work; they say they hire and promote from within, yet as an employee, you are still required to go through bureaucratic online application process rather than being directly promoted; TERRIBLE electronic equipment; favoritism and inability to properly discipline employees; everyone speaking Spanish

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize hard work and stop subsidizing bad work. Walk a mile in your busiest package handler's shoes. Promote homogeneous use of ENGLISH


  5. "Disappointed in Management staff at the City of Industry location."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in City of Industry, CA

    Pros

    Maybe the perks and the reduced shipping costs. Coworkers are good people as well but management really needs to be flexible in receiving ideas that did originate from them

    Cons

    The inflexible management staff- Closed to the possibility that employees have great ideas. Inflexible in accommodating schedules that conflict with yours

    Advice to Management

    Don't arbitrarily eliminate potential candidates because they cannot accommodate your schedule. I thought more of Fedx as an inclusive environment. Boy was I way off

    I worked at FedEx (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work is interesting and great co-workers. Employees treated contractor as another fellow employee, Great group to work with. Very helpful and thoughtful.

    Cons

    A little too much politics in the management levels. Make it difficult for a contractor to do his/her work. Sometimes it was awkward and caused project to be delay unnecessarily.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should encourage teams cooperation for the good of the company.

    Pros

    ever changing environment as far as job expectations, duties, how to do the job

    Cons

    workload expectations sometimes very stressful. Multi tasking is a common word, but is often hard to do with an eye for detail and an ear for the customers needs

    Advice to Management

    keep really listening to your valuable, experienced employees
