Due to the expansive nature of the Fedex trade network and their hub and spoke model of distribution it's hard to beat Fedex when it comes to shipping or learning the trade. The culture is intensely productivity and safety centric which aids in developing the skills that one can use in any sort of job involving logistics or transportation. Corporate management is conservative and a bit monolithic, however, the local management has always been outstanding.
I was recently let go due to conflicts with my schedule, which was on me for trying to put so much on my plate. Even though with that being said, Fed Ex took really good care of me, and I will always be thankful.
Good coworkers in a fast work paced environment. Some supervisors are okay. Some of the older guys will not pick every single thing they see whiether it’s over time or anything at all. Overall good job though.
Most people at each others throats over workload and work process. Management unreliable, confusing, and only looking out for themselves. Each individual member of management have their own agenda on how and what needs to be done.
A day on the dock at FedEx Freight fast paced I got to learn how to use a forklift you have to manage your time on the dock usually a team environment. The hardest part of the job was battling the cold weather. The most enjoyable part of the job is riding the forklift.
load and unload freight on a forklift from one trailer and take to the corresponding trailer for shipping had to secure freight and build decks for the freight it came very easy and the people there were good to work with
