I retired from teaching and coaching and continued to work at full time and part time jobs for the next 22 years. Much of this work was in retail sales and also did some commercial driving as a courier for several different companies. I enjoyed teachers and my retail sales and courier work. I have good people person skills and would enjoy doing that again on a part time basis. My last job at Fed Ex was enjoyable because the working conditions wre good and they stressed efficiency and not excess stress. They had activites on occasional week ends for the employees.
Enjoyed customer contact and selling in general.
Enjoyed drivin g jobs very much and Drove a Greyhound Bus for 9 years in the summer while teaching.
To the point. Fast pace customer base. Hard charging. Dealing with all types of people of all cultures. Problem solving daily with hard to find routes and new sub-divisions. In the end the goal is to unload all packages swiftly and most of all safety is number one!
Mindset to work you will be alright. You must be on time, safety is a great factor. Production has a great roll in our bonus checks. They have great equipment for the men to get the job, also if you need supplies they will get it for you.
A typical day was coming in load trucks it wasn't a fast paced job. I learned they did not care a lot about quality. Management was never around they working out of different sites. The culture was okay. The equipment not working. The people i worked with.
great company with opportunities for advancement. good people depending on your department. computer programs are excellent and make the job easier. working in the elements are less than desirable depending on the dock location.
While working at FedEx , I learned how to pack trucks and not only that but also learned how to use different type of technology such as a scanner and much more. I love the pay and they also have benefits.
A typical day was making sure I was ready when I put on my head set to answer the incoming calls. I learned that even though your customer is angry do not take it personal. My manager was caring and listened to any problems that you had. I got along with my co-workers laid back environment. Job was not hard. The enjoyable part of the job was making the customer happy.
Sorting through packages, scanning the packages that belong to my truck and putting the package where the sticker says it should go. Management is very down to earth and always around to help when different sorting lines get too overflowed with packages.
This job is all about speed and efficiency they want you to unload these trucks as fast as reasonably possible and they want you to do the correct and safest way possible. its isn't a bad place to work but the hours are minimum only about 4 to 6 hours a night. the hardest part of this job is repletion you will find yourself doing the same thing for hours. management will generally let you alone unless you strait to show decline in productivity and the co workers are good with team work
A typical day consisted of assessing volume and resources available. Egineering a plan. Executing with excellence. Reviewing performance to expose opportunies. People skills,development. Not enough time in the day. The daily challenges.
