Great people and very manageable work load

Featured review

FedEx Ground selected this as a representative review
I cannot say enough about the people at FedEx, managers and other coworkers alike. Their helpfulness and friendliness made going to work each day all the more enjoyable. Work load is more than doable and on nights where freight was heavier, you never truly had the sense of being overwhelmed thanks to help received from your coworkers. You will work up a sweat, so be prepared for that.

Pros

Great atmosphere, fair pay, good benefits

Cons

Environment can get hot!

Getting off once route is done.

Ok place to work far as flexibility . If you can in everyday and don’t let the packages intimidate you , you’ll be fine. The harder and faster you work (pause) the quicker you go home .

Pros

Getting off early if u work hard

Cons

No benefits

Not a positive experience in the slightest

During my time working there i was never treated fairly and taken advantage of. I met a lot of people that did/would agree with me when i say they don't care about their people or their safety, regardless of how hard you work.

Pros

Friendly Co-workers, accesible parking lot, storage lockers

Cons

Unsafe workspace, inaccessible water/beverages, unqualified employees make up the majority of the population

Very mentally exhausting

Expect to get off late. Even when you get off at a decent time you have to go help another driver. Sometimes I didn’t get off until 8-9pm and didn’t get no help. Mentally exhausting Manager was great though

Pros

Good pay, great manager

Cons

Off late, no time for life

Its a good atmosphere to work in.

At times it gets crazy busy and fast paced, Managers are there to help. It is a physically demanding job but its a good place to work. The people I work with are awesome. There is opportunity for advancement with the company. Management is very helpful and supportive. The only draw back is don't get enough hours.

Pros

Mangement Helpful and Supportive, decent pay

Cons

Not enough hours

Physically demanding

It’s a physically demanding job but if you can handle it the pay is great, hours are decent and there are many different positions available. The summer is the hardest because it’s very hot in the trucks

Busy and understaffed

Coworkers are great overall. Management is often spread thin, and sometimes challenging to find when assistance is needed. Pay and benefits insurance) are good, and available to package handlers after working 1000 hrs.

Pros

Hourly wage, raises, insurance, plenty of work hours if you are willing to work other shifts

Cons

No scheduled breaks, no set hours

Fast paced but very difficult at times especially summer humidity

The managers at FedEx Ground is very supportive and helps and encourages you to meet you loading rate when you hit 420 packages per hour they really appreciate the work and work very hard and you will get recognized and also the most hard part about the job is hot humid days working inside the trailer trying to hit 420 pkg per hour is very difficult and can be stressful on physical Over all the job a very nice offers a lot of bonuses during the holidays season flexible and good pay as a part time package handler

Pros

They have mini market to buy your lunch break

Cons

Working in hot summer days inside a trailer

It's All About Meeting Their Numbers

Employees are over-worked and under-paid. They are extremely short staffed for the work load that they have. They have to meet their numbers so they push employees to their limit. They stress safety in their talk, but getting the work done is more important. The training you receive is minimal. The trainers are lazy and can't be found to answer questions or help. Management is very disrespectful to employees. They make fun of some races. They employ some "special needs" people and I have witnessed management yelling at them. This is very unprofessional. They don't treat people fairly. They think they are above you. Hard working employees are not recognized for their efforts. Slackers and those who work hard are treated as equals.

Pros

Free bottled water and Gatorade

Cons

low pay for brutal work

Miserable

Underpaid union scabbing. Using independent contractors so that you're not paid what you rightfully deserve in compensation in the FedEx way. You're essential, but you're expendable. No one cares/

Hard physical Job/Not enough hours

When I first went to FedEx I already had previous experience working at warehouses. I knew it is a hard physical job to do but I was willing to do it. Working at a warehouse like this one was something way heavier. Not only the job but the environment. The pollute air due to all the trucks, machines running and closed spaces. There is always a feeling of working for people that does not really care at all about your integrity. You must be working all the time and there is no break given even if you work 6-7 hours straight, as soon as they don’t need you more or there’s less work to do they will send you home. I was told that by the time you were going to be able to get more time but that didn’t happen even if you do your best for. If they need to cut people out, they will without hesitation. I found myself constantly fighting with the time I wanted to make versus the time given. Every time there was a reason to justify why you were not given the time assigned on the schedule for the week. When it was around 35-30 hours at least making that will be almost impossible even if you were able to resist all those hours continuously.

Cons

No break time/Very pollute environment/Not enough hours given.
