    I worked at Fedex Express full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly management and pay is above average for the job.

    Cons

    If you like spending the holidays with your family this is not the company for you. But that's just the nature of the shipping business.

    I have been working at Fedex Express part-time

    Pros

    FedEx has great benefit and tuition reimbursement helped me pay for college.

    Cons

    The set schedule can make it hard to plan things outside of work. Unless you work at a big hub, it is hard to move up in the company without moving.

    - You have to start as a pick up driver for the first 6 months

    I have been working at Fedex Express part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for a part-time employee. Great benefits and healthcare for part-time employees along with a 401k. Overall good company to work for that takes care of their employees and allows plenty of room to grow and develop a career.

    Cons

    Hours are weird and can wear on you. It is difficult getting time off work. The work is physical labor and can be rough depending on your region and weather you work in. If you want to move up in the company, you will most likely have to travel around the country to different states and regions.
