I love the company just trying to do more active work for my health. I made a lot of money and seen my family a lot I was an over the road driver home three days a week I loved it until my codriver got into an accident
Excellent working environment the managers care for their employees. They take the time and dedication it takes to thoroughly explain and train the new package handlers in their job. Safety is taken very seriously and well explained before each work day. Co-workers are polite and willing to help at all times.
Fed ex is a robot that dosent understand the limits of human physicality . The managers at fedex are encouraged to push employees to a professional athlete level of physical stress muscles are torn, tendons are plucked and bones are fractured all in the name of absolute efficiency. Beneath the surface there is a social structure not unlike that of a prison or a bording school . The popular or beautyfull members of the staff can often find niches and nooks to slip through into easier work and ride waves into less demanding positions
Listening to my manager give us our numbers for the day and then assign us to our trucks. My manager will give me more flow than others because of how long I have been there. Then expect me to help teach new employees even though I'm not a trainer. The hardest part of my job is doing the jobs of multiple people. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with make the job a little less stressful.
Great benifits and Great Co-workers
Short breaks, and managers not telling you everything you need to know
This job it's actually a good job its a place of business. So theres not much extra stuff to do there. The days there was long and boring bt it go pass smooth when we kan listen to music n our head phones
It's a faced pace workout with plenty of hours during the peak season (holiday season) but hours can be slow early in the year. Just make sure you dress for the weather. If its hot outside, its hotter inside; cold outside, colder inside.
I enjoyed my time at FedEx. Upper management was great, but got worse the lower you went. They care little about you as a package handler. The job itself was not hard as long as you were able to work at pace.
It supplies you with a great work out as well as allowing you to make good money and enjoy a life outside of work. The workout is great although if you use the wrong technique you can severely injure yourself.
I was a loader at fed ex ground which meant I loaded boxes into the semi trucks, or I was a belt picker which was a person that stands at the belt while things come down it and you pick the objects off it and put onto the rollers to go into the trucks. I luckily was assigned to a awesome manager who made our work some what easier than other wings. The job really isn't for someone who is not used to lifting heavy things like 100 plus pounds or even 150 ! Not everything is heavy but the managers look for who is best and quickest a lot of people who work there or had good position and stayed the longest were pretty much body builder guys or really strong people.
