Typical day consists of getting equipment, loading trucks, scanning packages, customer service and problem solving for the client with tight time constraints. The most enjoyable part of the day is dealing with your clients... most are actually very good to work with. Management is trained well, but under great pressure, which is understandable. The hardest part of the job is the Christmas rush... incredibly intense.
Everything else 👎it's a very fast paced job and can be stressful at times, you'll have more stressful days than anything ! The pay is great and the benefits are good, so it has its pros and cons...just like any other job.
People work part-time for years just to keep the benefits. Company would rather hire new young drivers than let others move forward.
More and more drivers are looking to UPS, Amazon and even Uber to find more full time driving work than FedEx.
I highly recommend another profession. The delivery service is poor, the packages are not handled well, and when they are shown dangerous working conditions in the warehouses, they routinely pass them off to save money so the managers can hopefully get their bonus at the end of the year.
Great company to work for , which includes health care benefits after 3 months. Hardest part of the job is that you have to be ready to work in ALL weather conditions. Always busy and very time consuming.
FedEx makes you feel like you should be grateful to have a job. The culture is the job should come first above all else. Executive and management positions do not demonstrate the "Purple Promise" and the bottom line is always drawn in the sand. Just depends on which side you are on.
I was at FedEx Express 26 years. It is a solid company, and I made a decent living there. I retired with a pension and a 401k. It is stressful, but one needs to expect that. Constant time commitments met is how pkgs. move on time overnight. The years went by fast, and you will never enjoy Christmas again. You will get a days extra rest Dec.25.
FedEx is a great company to work for. If you don't slack off and do what you are supposed to do, you will do great. A large portion of the job as a courier you are alone, so you need to be motivated to keep working without a manager breathing down your neck.
FedEx Express is a good company when following the purple promise. Unfortunately this particular station is the worst I have ever seen. Management only caters to the veterans that have been there for a long time. The trucks are filthy dirty with no upkeep. The equipment that you use continuously fails while you're on road trying to do your job and then management blames you. Management continuously will push you harder and harder until you basically get yourself into an accident. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this company
Great place to work. The morale is usually high. Co- workers and manager share the same vision and can do attitude which makes it worth working for. Is a challenge, however, self motivation goes a long way to get your work done.

The first few weeks can be boring due to loads of computer training. Once you get through that you start going on road with other couriers to learn the daily routine and get to grips with all the paperwork.
It is a high stress, fast paced environment. You must be able to adapt to last minute changes. Must be thick skinned, again, things are hectic on the sort. Once you are out on the road,if you are a delivery driver, you are, for the most part, in charge of your day.
Federal Express is a great place to work. They take care of their employees when and where they can. Benefits are provided for even the part time personnel. If you work your scheduled day off, you are paid OT for that shift. It is definitely a great place to work for someone that is interested in beginning with part time employment as it takes a while to become FT.
