Courier/Loop Leader (Former Employee), Herndon, VA – July 9, 2014
Pros: room for growth professionally, training is good
Cons: delivering during the christmas season
Typical day consists of getting equipment, loading trucks, scanning packages, customer service and problem solving for the client with tight time constraints. The most enjoyable part of the day is dealing with your clients... most are actually very good to work with. Management is trained well, but under great pressure, which is understandable. The – more... hardest part of the job is the Christmas rush... incredibly intense. – less
Operations Administrator (Former Employee), New York , NY – August 21, 2014
Pros: free breakfast, company bbqs
Cons: short breaks
Working for Fedex Ground was a great experience for me. The management team and co-workers made a typical work day go by so fast with their can do fun attitude. Everyone is nice to one another and does their work to perfection. The hardest part about working for Fedex would have to be the amount of work there can be a day with lifting , or stacking – more... boxes on or off trucks. The most enjoyable part about the job is the benefits and rewards management would give out when the company meets its quota for the week/month. – less

It is a very fast paced,on point job. There are alot of opportunites as far as helping you pay for school tuition. Good benefits and great teamwork!! The management was strict and reasonable. The hardest part probably was when I was a loader and it wore me out at the end of the day. But you get awards and accomplishments for all the hardwork!!

Phaser/Package Handler (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – August 19, 2014
Pros: physical excercise
Cons: back pains by not lifting correctly.
Fast paced and physical. Management there to help you..I've learned that there is a lot a package goes through to get from point A to point B. Co-workers bond together to get the job done. Hardest part of the job is lifting 100+ lbs. Most enjoyable is the end of the day knowing you had a good workout.
