FedEx is a great company with excellent benefits and room for advancement for those who over achieve. The starting pay is quite low but if you are dedicated and work hard it is easy to move up.

I love working hard as long as there is a reason or benefit like getting ten hours worth of work done in six to go home. What you will actually get is being told to go do more work.FedEx only cares how many hours you work, not your performance. Employees can be very slow and unreliable but still make more than you for taking more time. Its a common theme of employees wasting time so they don't get more work.They have have this guarantee of 35 hours of pay a week if they don't have more work for you, but work is used as an umbrella. It can include being a package handler, lining all vehicles up, unloading boxes from trucks till you hit eight hours. You'd think if doing ten hours of work in six all week that just getting paid the 35 hours would be a good deal for how much time you'd save yourself and the company. Wrong, big time. They would rather pay you to do the work in ten hours and waste your time. Raises aren't based on performance at all. most you'll get is employee of the month which gets you a nice parking spot and 50 bucks (woot) but you'll get these dollar raises for inflation. Trying to transfer to another station will be met with silence even though they are "desperately" looking for help. So why should you work hard at all?

Fedex Express employees work directly for Fedex instead of for contractors like Fedex Ground and Home Delivery. Therefore, your paycheck and benefits come directly from Fedex.This is an okay job if you just need a steady income until you figure out what career path you want to pursue. On good days, you will deliver and pickup packages along your route and get back to the station in time to get home to your family. On bad days, you will deal with equipment failures, inclement weather, late freight arrivals from the ramp or road closures. Work/life balance is not the best. If you are a good employee, you will be used as a work mule to pick up the slack of people who call in sick or just don't show up. Some managers are pretty hands-off but others will constantly be calling your phone asking where you are/how many stops you have left/could you go help this person. Micromanagement became more of an issue the longer I stayed and it made the job a lot harder than it needed to be. It could be worth putting up with the stress of this job long term if the income potential was greater, but the money is just not there. The only real money I made was from overtime. Take this job if you must, learn a more lucrative skill set, and peace out.

Takes a year to get properly comfortable, but the sense of accomplishment you get every day is rare to feel at work. The employees are family after a while as well.

Working for fedex has been a pretty good experience for the most part. Like any other job it has its pros and cons, but for the most part I have had a positive experience.

Interview Questions

They asked basic questions: If you are able to work in extreme conditions i.e rain or shine/ high or cold temperatures? How many years of driving a motor vehicle / have a drivers license? Work on holidays? Can you lift 70lbs frequently? Packages can weigh up to 70lbs, can you lift up 110lbs with a co-worker? They only asked me 3 situational questions that will let them know if you are adaptable, organized, and dependable: "Can you tell me a time when you had to adapt at work? How did it conflict with your job and what was the success after overcoming the conflict." "Can you tell me a time when being organized and planning was important. How did being organized and planning helped you succeed at your previous work?" "Can you tell me a time when you had to be depended on by someone by a task and what was the outcome of that success?" Questions can vary by the manager I think. Interview took 30 mins total.

First they asked basic questions. Are you able to lift up to 70lbs? Are you able to be flexible with your schedule? etc. Then they went into 9 situational questions. Some examples: Tell us about a time you had to be dependable. Are you able to be adaptable on the job? If so, tell us about how you adapted at work in your previous job? Tell us about a time when you had to be compassionate for someone else. Tell us about a time when _____. Then they gave me an opportunity to ask questions. The whole thing lasted about 30 minutes.

There's honestly no interview, it's just a hiring process. Fingerprint, drug test, background checks, then you actually do the application at the recruitment center which is on Democrat.
