FedX hiring practices are astonishing. They have no problem wasting your time.

FEDX Advertises a job that really doesn't exist just so they can fill their "potential employee funnels". FEDX makes you show up for an entire day of testing with 40 other down-and-out people in the room just so they can put you in a funnel for a potential job that may come up 6 months from now.

THE ARROGANCE OF THIS COMPANY TO JOB-SEEKERS IS APPAULING

BEWARE OF FEDX

I also went for an interview I have excellent customer svc skills and went through a long list of questions for employment I felt like I was under a spot light being fired upon by two drill sargents. Needless to say I didnt get any position they were hiring for and I think it is due to me saying I am a proud grandmother when I was asked a question of " What makes you happy" does that make or break me from a job??? They wasted my time I wish they could have told me they wanted a younger person but then they would be against the law, I think us oldsters are in for a ride.

Don't be a fool; don't work for Fredex. It will be the worst move of your life.

There will always be complainers in life, these people are lifes losers. Sometimes its hard to separate fact from fiction so here is something FACTUAL to base how well FedEx is: Fortune 100 best companies to work for 97 FedEx What makes it so great?
Firm continues a no-layoff philosophy, offers health insurance to retirees and part-timers, and promotes from within (90% of FedEx Express managers worked their way up).
That is straight from Fortunes website here is the link money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/bestcompanies/2008/snapshots/97.html

It is true that there will always be complainers in life, it isn't fair however to say that all are losers. Alot of messages on Indeed do consists of complaints. It is an outlet ( a release ) for a job seeker to express his frustration of not getting the big job after a 2 month long interview process or a release to talk about HR at some company who didn't treat them well at some stage of the interview process. People who are happy at their work aren't really going to be writing
here.

You are right FedEx is a great great company - exceptional. However!!! it's just a matter of time that they will have layoffs. Every company does it now. No one ever imagined that IBM could or would ever have layoffs, they were known also as the company that didn't have layoffs. Layoffs are now part of the business cycle. Having one job for life (womb to tomb as they say) is no more. It's about increasing share price and profit at employees expense.

FedEx does presently have excellent excellent benefits. I believe they have a 401k and a pension. One day they will do away with that pension like most companies are doing today because it is too costly to continue. Likewise, health insurance for retirees will cease too somewhere down the road because again it will become too costly. (or they will ask retirees to pay or pay more for them)

Great company.............. for now

By the way I applied for an Account Executive position at FedEx and didn't get it. Does that make me a loser? I passed the phone interview with flying colors but couldn't pass the math test (or whatever it was) on the computer.

Here's my complaint!!! Are you listening FedEx? Why do give a math type of test (the questions if I recall were like trying to solve a puzzle, hard to explain it) but why give that type of test for a Sales job? Great Sales people sell, they aren't going to pass that kind of test. You lose out on the true salespeople (the showmen) who are great at building relationships. The people who will do well on that type of testing are kids who just took the SAT's or recent grads who have been taking such exams recently. The problem is that they don't have the give of gab to sell, no experience at selling.

Oh by the way, my name is Dean Suraci and I'm a complainer, you know a loser!

Bravo Dean! I wanted to reply to him about the complainers or losers but didn't want to waste my time. Glad you spoke up as you said they missed out on a true sales rep, well again, those SAT grads and college (new) grads are still kids & wet behind the ears this leads us back to Fedx not hiring the oldsters they want the young and know how to get out and about of hiring older people with great skills and experience. One day they will get busted, and one day like you said It all will catch up with them... and I have to say I do hope the two that interviewed me will have to look for a job later in years and see what it feels like LOL... I have moved on I work for myself now my own business and loving it... This loser is signing off g'night chet! (only the oldster will know that one) LMAO..

I've put in 25 years, sounds to me you couldn't handle the two months of employment at Fedex.

<a href="www.freightaccount.com">Fed Ex Shipping Services</a> are great even without offering health insurance to part time employees. It keeps the cost down for the shippers.
