Courier (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – February 10, 2016
One of very few companies that make sure that their employees are capable of taking care of themselves. Not too many people can go to a job and have the same are come close as to what FedEx has to offer. Its not a perfect company, but it does what it needs to do as far as looking out for their employees.
Driver (Former Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – February 9, 2016
Get to the terminal around 6:00 am to help loader load the truck. Averaging about 115-125 stops per day, delivering anywhere from 200-300+ packages a day. Management was never around so they never see the hard work you do on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was finding time to eat. Working at FedEx I learned how to effectively manage my time and prioritize my day. I loved meeting new people everyday.
Interesting place to work at with higher management that doesn't seem to care
MATERIAL HANDLER (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 9, 2016
The company in itself is really good. The benefits are amazing for single and family people. The people I work with are really nice and seem pretty motivated to move forward in life. The only problems is the management I am under don't enforce rules on the higher up positions and there is a lot of favoritism going on.
Great Benefits, Interesting place to work.
Management plays favorites, No one listens to your complaints.
Handler (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – February 8, 2016
A typical day at Fed Ex as a handler was very fast paced of loading and unloading trucks so the drivers and get there day started. While performing that task, also re labeling, assisting co workers and keeping management abreast, is just another day getting packages to customers effectively and efficiently.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Hebron, KY – February 8, 2016
I would sort packages, load trucks. Inspected packages. Drove a forklift. Inspected trucks and the warehouse for misplaced packages, or envelopes. The management was very helpful, easy to communicate with. The hardest part of the job was the physical part from lifting heavy packages.
The company is Ok, but when it comes to advancement within the company, it's all about who you know and if the supervisor likes you. For about a year, I asked to be put on an earlier shift and they dropped me down from a full time employee to a part time employee and I had been working for this company for 5 years. I was told I would have to apply for the same position again and wasn't told why I had to apply. In the beginning I was told when something became available and was never informed on being put on earlier shift. I didn't feel that was fair to be dropped down from Office Admin to a part time package handler with less pay. When I transferred from one station to another, they opened up a position for another worker with the hours I needed.
A company that is recognized for it's excellence in service
Courier (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – February 5, 2016
The average workday is generally a little hectic at the beginning, but it gets better over time when you get use to the fast pace. Your coworkers generally becomes like family from everyday interaction.
