FedEx Package Handler (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – December 12, 2017
Overall I have had a good experience at Fedex. I like the people I work with and the job itself is fine. I am trying to find a new job only because the hours are awkward for my school schedule and I just don't get enough sleep. Start time could be anywhere from 1am-4am and we don't leave till the work is done. I do not care for my direct manager but the other mangers a great. Its a pretty fast-paced job but that helps it from getting boring. It has great benefits, you just don't get them until you have worked so many hours.

Not enough hours and not treated as should be & not enough hours being received to make a living , hardest part was dealing with the co workers slacking off . Most enjoyable was fast paced staying busy

My time at FedEx was life learning I worked hard and I enjoyed my time being there I wish it could have been a permanent job because it was a great experience but it taught me to always stay focused and appreciate everything you have
It is not for the weary hearted. The management tends to make fun of it's workers sadly, and the work is very hard; they also work in very extreme weathers...whether it is extremely cold (like now), or extremely hot.
No breaks, Not everyone works they way they are suppose to.

On a typical day I would load and unload trucks. I learned how to efficiently and quickly load and unload a truck. Management could be stringent some times when deadlines needed to be met. The workplace culture was one of teamwork. The hardest part of the job was the constant lifting and battling the cold weather when loading and unloading. The most enjoyable part of the job was the work hours went very quickly in such a fast-paced environment.

The work environment is very physical and fast paced which required a significant amount of team work and communication which I liked. The manager's were very encouraging and making sure we kept up the good work.

only time that anyone gets reasonable hours is during the holiday season. before and after holidays average hours a week are about 25-30, if you're lucky, for a "full time" position. communication is terrible.

Love the job just not enough hours and management is not so good other than that it’s cool. Another problem is that you have to work weekends and holidays during peek and don’t get benefits until after a year of working there, you will need a second job if your planning to work full time the hours are sometimes messed up and they even may cancel a shift out of no where pros though is that they will tell you and text you ahead of time if a shift is canceled or not.
Easy job, nice people if your good with people
Not enough hours, poor management, work holidays during peek season
Jobs not hard but hours are not Guaranteed (expect attitude from security)
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Wilmington, MA – November 21, 2017
I'm start with the job is not hard at all and my supervisors where very nice and so where my coworkers on the belt However hours are not guaranteed and every morning u will be greeted by a 20 year old in a rent-a-cop uniform with absolutely degrading attitude honestly something should be done about him I know I am not the only one to leave due to him I almost didn't go to my interview cause he yelled and said I was in the wrong place when I showed him my email telling me to come to that address only reason I made it was I called and they want him running out no apology just a empowered complex statement of u can come in now if u can start ur morning at 230-3 like that everyday and just ur butt for the company after there ok with this and won't change it this is the place for you!!
The seasonal work done at FEDEX was a fast pace environment, that you had to keep a steady pace to load and unload trucks to prepare for delivery of packages. The management team, needs to be more attentive to their employees and be willing to work with their team to improve momentum.
Package Handler (Current Employee) – Earth – November 13, 2017
~ Health is pretty disturbing after some time thinking about how gross we are. Sedentary creatures all hunched over. Injury is one tiny accident away, without a dedicated warm up. ~ The best way I can increase my performance at work is to get my body ready beforehand. Feels good. My co-workers should try it some time. ~ Old chutes are my only real complaint. boxes come down with such momentum, they slide off the side of the rollers. But most of the time, the chute is at just the wrong angle so every front edge of every box rests in the space between two rollers. Like this. O🔻O
Package Handler/Sorter (Current Employee) – Earth City, MO – November 5, 2017
a day a fedex is very unpredicatable. never know if you'll have enough employees, or working equipment. the work culture is I do what I want kind of environment to a degree. the most enjoyable part of the job is the characters you come across in the job. hardest part is dealing with the childish mentality. I learned how to be patient, load a trailer, unload a trailer and why sending people off the clock a times is necessary.
