Fedex was considered home to me for many years. I had to overcome all the negativity that made it a bad place to be and dwell on the positive things and people. While doing that I inspired fellow workers encouraged them to overcome the obstacles that they faced on and off the job. Me helping them helped me and encouraged me to try to make a difference. But I learned that the change has to come from the people on top first and then it can trickle down the company.
My advice, Don't strive. Work at a meager pace. They don't seem to see people who achieve nor do they want to promote them. They'll Hire outside of the company before they people who know what they are doing.
Great benefits, best paying part time job in the poconos.
Corporate Policy in not evenly enforces. Lot of favoritism Dont give honest suggestion.. that may bite you You have to watch out for who will make allegation for you. I worked there for 15 years and will not recommend anyone to take the supervisory position...STAY AWAY
no job security for hard working honest employees.
It is a great place to work. Very fast paced so the time flies. Great people and managers. They pay good to start and provide raises occasionally depending on how many years you have been there. Also room to advance.
All dock work is done during night shifts on forklifts. Majority of coworkers are helpful and great to work with. Managers and supervisors varied and were often being shuffled around. Learned great forklift skills, working together to accomplish hard assignments.
Fedex gets pretty hectic certain times of the year but to many lazy people as well. Summer time it gets hot in the warehouse and winter time its usually below freezing but honestly management could careless about you guys they sit in a nice warm room and summer time nice cool room all day and watch a cumputer screen instead of doing there job and run there shipment lanes.
