The experience i had working at FedEx was real competitive, and the reason i say that is because we are always on the move. Once we finish one truck its off to the next constantly so we can meet a certain quota of how many trucks we needed unloaded.
Fedex Ground is a physical labor intensive environment. When hired you are intentionally misled by members of the human resource department to deter applicants from withdrawing their application. Fedex Ground 3000 directors row has a 80% turnover rate. Most new hires do not pat the first 30 days.
Great places to work great benefits to be a part-time job the give you proper training to lead to drive forklift and is no stress if you do everything the way the show you on training you will be okay.
The job is definitely physically demanding! You spend most of your time trying to shuffle packages onto rollers and a conveyor belt. Some of these packages are over 70 lbs. You have 2 layers of flooring in the trucks to empty out within a certain amount of time. The pay is definitely not worth the back breaking work you have to do! I was disappointed considering FedEx is a worldwide company. You don't get any benefits until you've been there a year. Just for the time of day that you work you should be paid decent. The work is from 3 a.m. to supposedly 8 a.m. Sometimes you get sent home after 2 1/2 hours because they're trying to give everyone opportunity for hours. You get $0.25 raise after 30 days then another $0.25 after 3 months!
No real breaks. Low pay. bad hours. No benefits. No job security....
Being a package handler at FedEx can be a very fast paced job. Requires a substantial amount of labor work. I do not recommend this job if you are not physically able to lift, push, and pull heavy or light objects.
Be punctual and prompt don't call out a lot its a peev to management.Help your neighbors if you are cleaned in your truck don't stand around take action with ICS clean sweep floor scan package to correct door.
FedEx has been and still is one of the best companies to with for in my experience. They maintain a policy to keep keep your work/life balance. I did not want to leave however due to relocation I was forced to resign.
