The warehouse does get extremely hot during the summer and you’ll be sorting through packages for the entirety of your shift and we’ll get back up every now and again, but the pay is good and it’s easy to get along with everyone there. Another issue is the lack of hours and your not allowed to bring your phone in the building. It is also virtually impossible to get promoted from a sorter to a manager even if your close with the managers.
Great place to work took great care of me and my family over the years I worked for them. I was very happy to go to work every day. When I retired from FedEx Freight it was hard choice to make because it's more than a place to work it like a extended family. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a really great place to work.
great place to work. It was a second job for me they were very understanding with my schedule with my full time job. plenty of overtime plenty of room for advancement. i enjoyed my time there and like i said it was a second job to my full time job, received a lot of rewards and the holidays we were given gifts. they also cooked for for the employees fed ex is very good to the hourly employees, i worked for ups for 6 years and never received the types of gifts we were given at fed ex.
Management all came from fedex call centers and they have a chip on their shoulder for anyone that didn't get to "go home" like them and was actually hired as an at home agent. The managers could careless about the customers they are only out for the almighty dollar.
My typical work day involved meeting and coaching employees, reviewing and analyzing data, cooperative work environment. I learned how to manage large teams and prioritize my work load to affectively manage my to be successful within their daily tasked.
It was a good job the managers were great and the work was a good workout but the trucks would be super hot and the boxes would be 100 pounds plus and it would just get hard harder as the day progressed.
Need some fulltime staff on dock. The computer system needs to be updated to be able to have the same capability as old system did plus the enhancements of the new software. The new software does not retain any weight after you come out one bill to another. You have to start all over. When the product is all mixed in together this way I can track and weigh two or more Bills at once.
Great benefitsand pay for part time work
Limited hours, no fulltime staff at my location on dock
I am a package handler so I am inside trailers unloading or loading packages that customers have ordered. A typical day at work is just non-stop moving of packages if it's hot out you are gonna get very very sweaty. Management is hit or miss depends on the manager you get. The culture is pretty good everyone is very nice.
Was told when hired that Full Time hours were available, but when I started working, manager said there were too many employees and not enough need for work for full time. Wouldn’t recommend unless looking for a second job.

Large enough company you had many job options in many states
Fedex was a good paying part time hob, i never got the oppurtunity to work full time however the pay after overtime is time and a half. The managers were not the best, they favored people that's been their longer and would never help do a job.
hourly wage good, part time workers don't get many hours, benefits great, training good, 4:30 am - 9:30 am shift loading alot of outgoing freight, cold in warehouse and on loading docks in winter, teamwork good
