If you got a great route , it's great..

Check in about 7:00am , get your packages loaded on your truck , "memorizing the route , and how you want/need to run it is imperative," do some morning paper work , and head out between 8:15/45 or so , depending on the season , go get gas/breakfast , eat on the way to your territory , then start hittin' porches... The working alone outdoors in a non-labor intensive way is nice...be thoughtful of what you are doing , and you can be off work by 3 or so, after learning the route...drive safely , don't get to worked up...Its an easy job with occasional big heavy packages, and in my experience if you get overwhelmed , more experienced people will come take part of your route on for you after they finish...

Great job for a retired person like myself

Bosses are great. Office staff is awesome and the permanent drivers are very approachable and friendly. Hiring process was fast. Training was very appropriate and thorough

Decent for the short term

Depending on your contractor and negotiating skills you could a decent amount of money. Other than that it isn’t worth it. No benefits. No promotions. Just load the truck and delivery the packages.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Lack of benefits. Lack of advancement. Old trucks. Cheap contractors.

No teamwork

I've been with FedEx for 4+ years, and had the most seniority, and the oldest among my fellow delivery drivers. I was pushed out by the contractor I was with because he felt, "I would be better suited with another contractor driving a straight truck." Well, I tried the straight truck position, but it was more physical than he made it out to be. I was happy with the original residential delivery position I had, and never complained about the route, or ever injured myself to stop working for any amount of time. I believe he let me go due to my age, and personal cost cutting practice.

Pros

None

Cons

Never felt like I could take a break, because of pickup windows. Job is physical.

Stay far away!!!

No flexibility. Strict attendance policy. They lie about pay. No training and they threw me on routes with dead spots and I got stranded. Got bit by dogs while working for one of their contractors. AVOID ALL FEDEX COMPANIES AND CONTRACTORS

The workplace wasn't what I expected.

Not organized enough, and my GM plus our supervisor was terrible. They don't know how to manage their employees at all. In my situation, they had me load one vehicle and then switched me over to someone else route. So I quit because they had been doing this for far too long.

The job is not for everyone, very physical

You will be very active for about 5 hours straight. There is always work here. Best part is driving. Once on your route you can decide where to start.

Cons

Weather

Fun place

It’s good place to work but i was tired of same routine every as i like to explore more. Sometimes it tooo busy and no one is thete to help you l. You have to complete your work by yourself

N/a

Working at FedEx in my opinion is for young healthy individuals looking to make money for school or whatever for older people that has to constantly get off and on the truck and deliver and collect items tends to impact your lower body negatively

Cash varies from week to week never the same amount

Half of the contractors are crooks,you can give them a 110 percent and it's still not good enough.Your job is not secure they can get rid of you with no explanation even if you earned a bonus that's comes out in a week.Not a good place for a career.

Pros

When you are paid by how many packages you deliver

Cons

No heath care and when you paid by salary the miles on route never adds up

Decent job

It was decent enough to work for a while. Enjoyed not having somebody right on top of me all the time. Work is at your own pace but company has certain minimum requirements.

Not a lot of organization

It’s okay to work there but don’t get your hope’s up just another big company with not all the right people in management I think the could be a lot better
Was this review helpful?

fast pace place to work, And I enjoy most of the people I work with.

This is a good job. A lot of hard work for average pay. Their is a high turnover rate at this location. I don't think this is a job I see myself sticking with for the long haul.

Pros

Great work out.

Cons

Sometimes have to work late, an rain

Cool job at your own pace

You do the same thing everyday. Your on your own time so it’s up to you when you want to get off. Management is trash. This never know what’s going on

Company sucks

Pay sucks. Contractors suck. I wouldn't recommend nobody to work at this place. The work is very physical and the pay doesn't reflect any of that. There are no benefits period. God forbid an employee gets hurt.

Not fun workplace

Management cares about the numbers , they don’t care about safety or employees, if the package non deliverable due to road conditions or no excess to the driveway blocked by construction , management will force you to deliver. I wouldn’t work for this company even if pay is the best in industry.

Pros

None

Cons

Not what you sign up for

Great for single guy/ girl with really no responsibility the pay is horrible and management well they are not up there, they hire you for fulltime but never make fulltime hours the pay is bad and they don’t really value you

Pros

You work alone your own pace, get paid every week

Cons

If there’s not enough work u get paid the hours you work, if you work 3 hours you get paid 3 hours, u can be fulltime and not make close to fulltime hours horrible

Ok

Gets bad when it’s hot out long routes old trucks with no ac you’ll be sweating bullets while the Amazon driver drives by you in a up to date sprinter van cool and refreshed , they expect you to break your back 6 days a week with one day rest time, weird pay rate you won’t get paid for hours worked you get paid a flat amount as soon as you clock in so you could be out there for hours and not be compensated for your time
