This was a good job, I worked 3rd shift loading and unloading trucks. They also helped pay for my collage. Ended up having to leave the company because the distance was too far.

You do the same job/task but it is different day to day, There are some politics but that is expected from a fortune 500 company. Management supports you.

Senior Customer Service Agent/Courier (Former Employee), Paducah, KYAugust 2, 2015
Pros: 401k (matching), paid time off
Cons: strenuous, stressful, fast paced
This job is the most demanding job I have ever held. So much so that most tasks are not even achievable. The management team is somewhat unresponsive to concerns.

Productive, punctual, confidential and team player
Package Handler (Current Employee), Kernersville, NCAugust 2, 2015
Pros: Sponsored further education, free launch, car maintenance allowance
Cons: short breaks, limited vacation days
Spacious environment where workers can move freely around without obstruction. For any business to succeed there should be a team work. I am a team player, and my contributions are always beneficial to members of the team.

I respect every worker in the organization no matter the status. Everyone is important in the business set up that is the reason why person has been hired to perform a specific duties or schedules.

The hardest part of the job is when there were no logistics to work with though temporal or when 1st and 2nd batches of nurses were not paid on time after they were hired for months.

When the 3rd Batches of Nurses were paid on time, it served as motivation to put in their best performance, and this was translated into high productivity to the agency. This served as the most enjoyable part of the job.

Hard but worth while
PACKAGE HANDLER (Current Employee), Bloomington, CAAugust 1, 2015
Pros: free lunches now and then
Cons: none
A typical day at work would be working in a fast pace environment while keeping very high standards as well as handling packages from all around the country keeping our customers happy with high quality customer service. Everyday we are to meet same or more production keeping our customers from delay on any package. What I've learned working for FedEx is how maintain expectations by managers as well as pushing myself to go beyond what is asked. I've enjoyed working with a diverse 300 co workers. Hardest part of the job might be the physical part but all is well if kept maintenance with diet and good exercise. The most enjoyable part about my job is being able to serve thousands around the globe with great quality customer service.

Not bad for a job.
Package Handler (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Great benefits, decent pay per hr.
Cons: Short hours, fast paced, gets very hot during summer months, no OT unless its holiday season.
I've worked at fedex ground as a package handler for over 5 years.

The job was easy, but because it can get so fast paced it can be difficult at times especially during the holiday season.

Management was great, but when i left there it became kind of sucky. It seems the only way to advance is how brown you can get your nose.

Biggest thing i don't like is the hours. when i was part time while attending school sometimes i only get 1hr days due to low workflow. Even when i was full time they only let you work 37 hrs max.

But in all its not a bad job at all especially if you need some extra cash, or if your a college student.

Its a very good job for young adults.
Unloader/Loader (Former Employee), Roanoke, VAAugust 1, 2015
It was good getting there seeing all workers gathered together waiting for the supervisor to tell them what the goal is today. Then we all get to our work place and get started unloading boxes. I learned a lot about how FedEx gets all the boxes in the right place and how the business works. The management was good. The hardest about it was the heavy boxes to unload. The most enjoyable part was everybody was communicating with each other and helping each other get the job done.

Package Handler (Current Employee), Cheektowaga (Buffalo), NYAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Benefits after 1000 hours (3 months) tuition funding, dental, 401k etc..
Cons: Breaks the the conveyor belts don't stop because you want to
Typical day come in clock in load boxes left to right NEATLY and SAFELY there big on safety here at FedEx then clock out after 4 maybe 4 1/2 hours . I learned how to work as a team is a person is overloaded with boxes in their trailer stop what your doing when your not so busy and help the person get cleared because there going to do the same to you management are cool taught us alot about safety.Hardest part is staying up to flow always be on your toes one minute you may barely have any boxes next minute it's like a sea of boxes. Most enjoyable is talking with the co workers about everything plans for weekend,school etc.. even talking with the managers about life their really down to earth people as well.
