    I worked at Fedex Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    FedEx offers great benefits for full and part-time employees, promotes career development and employee involvement.

    Cons

    Operations Management tend to work excessive hours which impacts work/life balance. There's also a lot of micro managing from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micro manage so much from upper management. Allow Senior Managers to make more operational decisions.

    I worked at Fedex Express part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and discounts. Meeting people, no customers and a workout everyday. Overtime Under 30 hours, you get 5 days to work with 2 days off and if you work 1 of your days off those hours are overtime.

    Cons

    Dealing with angry coworkers and inexperienced management. You can get hurt easily if you don't lift properly. Hours are not good for regular life.

    Advice to Management

    Get trained better and understand your coworkers

    Pros

    It's a workout working here. You have to be mentally and physically ready for it. It comes with great benefits and is a great job to have. You always pick up OT as well.

    Cons

    It's really noisy. Packages are sometimes way too heavy and you can easily hurt yourself; mainly your back.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to listening to workers and actually take time to manage the belts better. You can't pick on all of the hardworking people to work harder while the others who do less can easily get away with doing nothing.
