Package Handler (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – July 8, 2016
Working in a warehouse environment with extremely physical work that has to be done quickly to get mail to customers. Not much compensation and mostly part-time work. There is some opportunity for advancement, but it is difficult to advance unless you are willing to relocate. Good for a part-time job if you have other sources of income.
Don't get me wrong working at Fedex is not bad, it is a decent job with amazing benefits. The job atmosphere is pretty laid back.
Although the culture has recently shifted to push push push code and cut corners. The running joke is that Fedex Agile is Fragile.
Their infrastructure needs to be heavily modernized but management doesn't give you the time to innovate and pressure is put on to do the features the higher-ups deem more important. They've been losing talent to more attractive companies.
If you're the kind of person that wants job security and a laid back job this is a good place.
Market Development Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 16, 2018
Typical day started around 5:30 Numberous emails requiring follow up before I could make calls All admin was supposed to be on our own time and not interfere with prime selling time. However, that meant I worked until 7 or later trying to get all follow up and administrative work done. the pricing system was tedious, moved slow, and delayed publishing pricing due to they system moving so slow for the analyst as well

Sales Executive - Business/Market Development (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – July 15, 2018
Globally recognized corporation. A lot of challenges and obstacles in performing the required job functions. Management under constant directives to change. Customers just want to ship. Not a lot of consistent structures in place.
Nice easy work....the easiest work ever is working at fedex....they only expect you to do other people's job when their behind.. The hours was the best starting out....once i started getting pay increases my hours went down..
