Typical day consists of getting equipment, loading trucks, scanning packages, customer service and problem solving for the client with tight time constraints. The most enjoyable part of the day is dealing with your clients... most are actually very good to work with. Management is trained well, but under great pressure, which is understandable. The hardest part of the job is the Christmas rush... incredibly intense.
Working at Fedex was enjoyable as there was always work to keep yourself busy and my cooworkers were pleasant to be around. The hours were consistent, but the workload increased dramatically during holidays.
Pay and benefits decent for job requirements. Work till you drop attitude towards drivers. Problem focused management. Little positive feedback. Get to be outside all day and plenty of exercise is a positive.
Not a job for the soft at heart. It requires lifting, walking, driving all day, sweating in the summer and being cold in the winter. However, if you like to be unsupervised, it is a great job Eventually you will make more money and accrue more vacation time..
During my 7 years there, I saw it change fro the FedEx people remember to a company that was more concerned with shareholder value and meeting metrics than customer satisfaction and employee happiness.
I’ve worked here for about a year and the hours were very inconsistent. They hire you for a full position but it doesn’t even guarantee you 40 hours a week. To get benefits takes a while, and no over time. So you have to bills to pay, this isn’t the job where you’ll be making the most money. If you want to wait 3 months for benefits to hit then it’s the job for you. In my opinion not even worth it
It’s a job but they recently changed the pay raise instead of a step raise of a dollar you’re only getting a 2% raise each year, they also start you off at 18$ an hour, it was good for a bit but I’m over it currently looking for a new job, I work to hard for 18$ an hour.
If you're younger and fully ready to do whatever asked, you can make great money and plenty of O.T. Nothing against older people, it's just fast paced and the hours are pretty set in stone for your work schedule.
My time working at Fedex was a great experience. Employees was good with helping each other out when another employee was running behind. Also employees would call each before they clocked to make sure you were ok
This company was an amazing company to work for 20 years ago. Now it’s all about the Shareholders. Women are paid substantially less than their male counterparts and family time is much less. The company always comes first. The customers are the best part of the job. Discrimination is prevalent and never addressed. Think hard about wanting to work here, especially if you are a female.
