    I have been working at Fedex Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good rate of pay for what is required.
    Excellent and extremely affordable medical insurance.
    Matching 401K contributions from the start.
    Paid holidays, sick days, and vacation.
    Good corporate discounts at lots of places including daycare!
    College tuition reimbursement.
    Work a minimum of 1000 hours per year for any 3 years (can be non consecutive) and become eligible for pension.

    Cons

    Mostly night shifts available.
    If you have a problem showing up to work on time don't bother to apply at this company, you won't last long. They hold you to a very high attendance standard.
    Don't see your manager very often, mostly report to Team Leads.
    You might come across some folks that think they are god but as long as you show up and perform your job as expected y ou will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask employees to rate the quality of upper management when they only have a chance to meet them a few times a year. Also, require managers to available to their employees every night.

    I have been working at Fedex Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fortune 100 multi-national corp, full benefits even for part-time including health insurance, tuition reimbursement and pension. Diverse workgroups from a variety of backgrounds work well together as a team. Plenty of physical exercise without going to the gym. Easy transfer to anywhere in the US. Promote from within philosophy provides opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Red tape delays hiring necessary staff. Minimal work/life balance for managers. Many that want full-time employment get stuck as part-time. Ops Managers and Senior Managers are significantly underpaid commensurate with the work and time demands by about 20K or more per year even if in position over 10 years. Lack of accountability of executive leadership. Goals are sometimes in conflict with each other (e.g. mandates for certain procedures will reduce results in other required categories). Trucks are being retired without replacements. Employees with 3-17 years have been unfairly compensated for their entire career.

    Advice to Management

    Expedite critical hiring approvals. Improve manager pay - someone with 12+ years in management should not be below 50% of range and should really be over 75%. Compensate for the 14-16 hour days that some say are sometimes required. Free up more local money for employees and community involvement.

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

    Pros

    Provided a decent living for my family for over 30 years.
    Enjoyed having an outstanding hourly workgroup.

    Cons

    Most of us highly tenured professionals are being "encouraged" to retire; our expertise and knowledge is no longer valued. It is an unusual day when all equipment and systems actually function as designed; the pickup operation has not changed or upgraded in 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Too much micromanagement and emphasis on non-essential flavors of the month which have no positive impact on improving the customer experience, driving down the cost of transaction, and new processes to increase productivity.

    Pros

    FedEx Express is a good company that really does strive to care for their people while being profitable. They have particularly taken care of their people with good pay increases and affordable healthcare.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that the high stress environment they have created. In an effort to be more and more efficient they create so much stress especially for Operations Managers.
