I loved this job because I love a fast pace and I'm very organized so I figured out the best plan of action. I had great customers that liked me and appreciated my good work habit's and professionalism . I don't like the managers lack of personal touch or the fact that they don't know how to make things work. They also frequently overload you and then get mad when you don't make service. That's just bad management skills. They did give me the days off that I requested and at least pretended to care about me.The supplies were usual hard to find and the don't properly train the drivers of the right business skills to increase customer appreciation. They occasionally have cook outs which is great for employee moral. The manager frequently asked me how I was doing.
Working for FedEx Freight was the worse experience of my life, there communication was horrible, whenever I broke down I couldn't get through, which happened 7 times in the the 7 months I worked there.
Overall Fed Ex is the best trucking company I’ve had the privilege to work for. They are fair and honest never had to read between the lines to be successful. They definitely allow you to move around in the company I was able to transfer personally in three different states while there. The hours can be long and the the bidding isn’t great until you have some seniority but if you can ride it out you will have a great career forever.
Some of my friends have worked for fedex for years so I was pretty excited when I got the job. Management was only concerned about the numbers. I felt disposable the second I came through the doors.
Customers were pretty cool though
The worst job I've ever had, no appreciation, you do what you were told without negotiation, be a robot, nothing matters to them but doing what they ask for, management is the dictator king of command
Can't wait until I find another job.
If FedEx didn’t pay its line haul drivers so good they’d have no employees! Terrible company that treats people horribly! Constant infighting between drivers, no delay pay on runs less than 237 miles.. so you end up donating 2-3 hours a night to the company waiting on your trailers! Driving nights does not pay any extra, zero communication between drivers and management..
Good place if you like to run alot,great place as a team they have good team runs.most of your runs come from their load board or a broker.the pay is good but you have to run a lot to make a good living.
Excellent Benefits, ability to advance in your career, innovative, employee focused.Very busy work, days went buy quickly. Comfort and stability of a major corporation. Decent PTO, good insurance. Promotes and hires from within very often
I have been working for fed ex for a little over a year now and it is a good job when its good. when its bad i would say it is very bad. the dispatchers tend to now try to work with the drivers but work of all is the seniority system they have and how that affects the hour you get in a week. if they don't have a lot of work instead of taking some work from senior drivers they will leave you home.
Not enough money, no real help if you need it just go until you are done. Trucks are not kept up as they should be. If you spend half the day in maintenance getting your vehicle fixed. You still must deliver all packages
On your own, company van, meet nice people
Rain or shine, dog bites, super heavy packages, long hours
Stressed out job is not worth it fed ex ground is full of pirates who want all they’re money for them selves want to pay employees peanuts and expect good results. If they paid good the packages and delivery system would be good. Contractors get paid a lot and want to mAke as much money as they can so they pay the drivers fck all
It’s OK if you like sitting around waiting for loads and waiting to pick make money for your truck my truck cannot run sit and steal it Hass to stay moving so is that working out for me not that I don’t like custom critical Fed ex just not working for me
