Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I work for a FedEx ground contractor the benefits were nominal at best and there was never any way of knowing what time the work day was over I got paid per day not per hour so whether it was a 6-hour day or a 14 the pay was the same.

Pros

Able to work independently

Cons

No overtime

Very demanding and high volume with no insentives

Unfortunatly due to covid the volume kept getting higher and higher with no plan of action to deal with it. Scheduling was done nightly by phone call or text the turnover rate was the worst I had ever seen at a job and managers that had been working there for 15+ werent even motivated to do their jobs correctly due to the extreme volume of packages and overall unpreparedness of the company to deal with the pandemic related surge.

Pros

would be off before noon about once a month

Cons

long hours, base rate of pay, bad managment

Long hours

I worked part time on weekends, expect to work long hours busting your butt to get the packages off the truck, some days were better than others but if you work over a certain amount of hours you actually lose money because your are paid a set amount for the day

Pros

Deliver at your own pace

Cons

Long hours

Na

I believe this company is good for someone without a family and single. This job will damage your body in the long run and the benefits suck if the contractor give it to you

Pros

Money ok not great and finishing shift super fast

Cons

Messing up your body

be careful which fedex contractor you work for!

i worked for pinnacle, they were not okay. the work culture was very toxic and they look at it like its some sort of sick game. they give you way too many stops and expect you to be completly flawless. they are critically understaffed as well. i work(ed) for another in fife, and they actually help drivers out and dont put too much stops on you (because they arent critically understaffed). this set of routes got baught out and the change was immediate, now i am actively looking for a different line of work. if the "boss" doesnt see you as a person, doesnt understand that you have a life outside of fedex, dont do it. oh and one more thing: most drivers have to pi** in bottles.

Pros

pay

Cons

possible micro-management, no restrooms

Cons

No breaks bad management unsanitary

Horrible

Only work there if youre desperate. No home life and management could not be worse if you payed them to. You have to constantly cover your butt while 5 managers breath down your neck. I can see why everyone there has gray hair already in their late 20's or just bald... Most thankless job i ever had but made some decent money in a short time

Hard work, low pay

Pat is low and I worked as a sub contractor for FedEx home delivery. Long days in the winter and during holidays. Low pay all around. Wears your body out. No one cares if you live or die...just deliver packages.

Pros

Exercise

Cons

Low pay

Outstanding work environment. Management goes above and beyond to ensure your success.

I truly appreciate working for FedEx. I am absolutely impressed with the culture and environment for such a large corporation. From day one every single employee I encountered was helpful in answering my questions, showing me how to do a task or introducing me to the person who could give me the answer I needed. Management is very approachable and always willing to assist to ensure you have the tools to accomplish your job.

Pros

Fair pay, good benefits, great atmosphere.

Cons

None

It's a job, not a career

Work is pretty good, but no benefits and no advancement make it pretty dead end. It's a good place to get experience for a better driving job, or a good place to pay the bills while you invest in yourself for bigger and better things.

Pros

Simple job, decent pay, self paced

Cons

no benefits, work on weekends

It’s not a bad job but it is not for everyone

It’s not a bad job but it is not for everyoneVery hard work early morningsg.If you are truly a flexible were good this will be good for you because one day you can go in in the liver a whole truck the next day you can deliver three packages

Pros

Being out on the road not just stuck in an office

Cons

Until you get a well you never know what you’re gonna do that day

Lot of overtime

I would usually work from 6 A.M to 9 P.M with my base pay that doesn't fluctuate with overtime and such. It does pay well but considering the long hours, I had to quit

A good example of job culture in a Socialist regime

A typical day at work is just exactly like the one before it. AND, just like this required entry, all units must be accounted for before you can leave.

Pros

plenty of exercise

Cons

no breaks for ANYTHING

You get paid for what you do and theirs opportunities to make more the better you get.

Be responsible, be organized, and be efficient then your job becomes easier and easier!! Work out a little bit to make work lighter as you get stronger. Have a no matter what I’m going to get good sleep to be rested for work. Invest in massages and a chiropractor to take care of your body. Because if you don’t your body will give out on you.

Pros

No boss breathing down your neck, opportunity to explore your route when finished: shopping and site seeing

Cons

Repetitive lifting, no incentive for lifting 2 man lift packages, at the mercy of 18 wheelers who are late bringing the day’s workload
