Depending on the need and the volume of packages set for the night, I could be placed anywhere in the building. I've learned how FedEx Smartpost operates on a daily basis, trip management system used to coordinate routes, and how management makes scheduling decisions based on needs. The co-workers are hardworkers and most enjoy the work. But, some of the workers feel under appreciated and underpaid. The hardest part of the job is going above and beyond and not being recognized for all the hard work put in. Also, being able to deal the different cultures at the job. For example, FedEx Smartpost has many employees who are Hispanic and Somalian decent. Most of the Somalians are Muslim and they have special times in which they have to pray, which can be time consuming if we are very busy. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to deliver the Purple Promise; "I will make every Fedex experience outstanding". To ensure our customer packages are being processed and maintained at a high volume so we can retain business and attract new customers is vital to our success here at FedEx.
FedEx gives away free accessories; shirts, key chains, water bottles and etc.
Short lunch breaks and not very flexible with the overtime.
