My day is very busy, fast-paced. Meeting the day to day workload, by the end of my shift. Being safe at always times. The work culture is very good. The hardest part of the job, is sometimes it's understaffed, so you maybe moved around.
The people were friendly and they cared about how everyone was feeling and they wanted to make sure everyone followed the safety rules so no one gets hurt and everyone could go home safely at the end of the day.
A typical day would begin with the sorting of inventory to be delivered. The sort was divided by priority packages and by end of day packages. The day usually began by 7am and ended when all the packages were delivered. During my tenure with FedEx, I learned that customer services is a key attribute in being successful. A happy customer resulted in future business and recommendations. My management team was very supportive and hands on with the daily tasks. The hardest part of the job was ensuring that the priority packages were delivered by the set time. The most enjoyable part of the day was the return to the hub where I got to interact with my co-workers.
i learned nothing much working at fed ex beacuse of the lack of communication between me and my manager. not a great experience and would not do that to another human being fair is fair and right is right. i tried to get a job transfer and that was unsuccessful. i did pick ups working at fed ex located in pompano beach florida. i worked 5 days a week started at 3pm and my shift ended at 9pm everyday.my management was not great with one on one communication. and i had to resigned due to my father getting hit bye a car in bronx new york.
It was a very fast pace and busy environment especially around holidays and weekends. My fellow co-workers were all willing to help each other out especially if the workload was a little too much that day or shift.
Individuals seemed to come in at times whenever pleased or not at all...Also on days that individuals were called off due to weather or other reason. Managers fail to contact employees letting them no that there was no work needed for that day
The company is excellent and the only negative thing to say is that when working for an independent contractor your position is not always secure. I was hired for a full time position to replace a gentleman that was leaving to begin his own route. However when that plan did not come to light the manager allowed him to stay which meant I now did not have a job. I have done some per diem as much as I can but I need a full time job. I have a family.
