    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, and good corporate structure. Value their employees.

    Cons

    It's hard work! Seriously, it does take a toll on your body after a while. I started when I was 30 and worked there 20 years, and my knees ache every morning.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to take care of employees, and they'll take care of you.

    Need more team players

    Advice to Management

    Balance out work loads more evenly, and let workers do doubles in areas familiar with so not running around like a chicken with no head.

    Pros

    Awesome pay for job with no degree. Good benefits. Variation from day to day... If you like that.

    Cons

    Micro managment, constant pressure to perform at a fast yet safe pace(sounds contradicting, I know) times when you have to take an extended break to work a pickup route or reload sort.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure couriers are aware of policy or changes within company. I believe there could be a better reward system for the couriers that works hard. Moral deminshes when you have to take up slack or are held to a different standard, because you can do more.

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

    Pros

    Cheap health insurance, overtime opportunities, lots of positive customer interaction, sales bonus opportunities.

    Pro and con depending on the type of worker you are: Almost impossible to get fired for job performance.

    Cons

    It takes a few years to get into a full-time position, managers try to make you feel guilty about not doing overtime, work can get repetitive depending on your daily route.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the slackers. When one person is super slow after years on the job, everyone else shouldn't have to work harder to make up for it.
