Pm Driver (Volt alkalmazott) – Herndon, VA – 2017, július 1.
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.

Good place to work. all the people are friendly. Supervisors and managers are always open to your opinion and to help you out. its my first days as a driver and it is a good experience. you really need to stay on your toes and be very attentive to your surroundings while driving, and be at a fast pace while delivering.
Very active job, time flys while working
It can be frustrating when you get backed up in deliveries

You have to be a very motivated and healthy person who is willing to do whatever it takes in order to keep the customers happy and to be safe. The days can be very long and stressful but you have to be dedicated to sacrifice your time with your family in order to complete your job every day

I worked at other FedEx locations that weren't so bad, but FedEx Freight in San Antonio was absolutely horrible! It's almost a year since I quit and I still sometimes have nightmares about that place! Supervisors and dispatchers there are openly hostile to dock workers and drivers. It was the most bizarre work environment I've ever been in! Supervisors really go to extra lengths to let you know that you're just a cockroach to them, and they really enjoy stepping on you. They roll their eyes at employees, scream at them, speak condescendingly, tell employees to load HazMat in dangerous and illegal ways to meet deadlines, putting the driver and the public at risk. They don't let employees report injuries because it will ruin their chance to have a safety bbq. But when something goes wrong it's all on the employee. And if you complain about it, you'll be walking around with a bullseye on your back! In every daily work group meeting one of the supervisors would proclaim to everyone "If you don't want this job... than you don't have to work here!" Eventually I realized what brilliant advise that was. So I threw away my 8 years with the company. When I quit it felt like I was finally released from prison.
There is no doubt that FedEx has great benefits and the wages are more than fair for each job class. There is lots of room for advancement, which I took advantage of several times. I was able to buy a house and my dream truck because of FedEx. But eventually, I realized that my dignity is worth more than that.
Great pay and benefits
Supervisors and Dispatchers are openly hostile to employees

Express is great, you are an appreciated asset, only part time. Ground is good to work for, but you are hired by a contractor Freight is full time and pays good, just not appreciated and sometimes (winter) 14 hr days
FedEx is a very good company to work for. They have excellent benefits and always have extra hours. While compensation is decent, if you work more than 7 hours a day you don’t feel like the pay you make is adequate.

Did temporary work for a private contractor who played favoritism to his friends and any temp that worked for him was constantly getting hammered with extra work, especially if a veteran complained about being overworked.
Learbed how to sequence a route
Overstocked trucks and too little time to finish a route

One to three years max lifespan of a regular driver. Expectations are high and morale is always low. Pay can be good driving for a good contractor but if not expect to be suckered into extra work with no extra compensation.

I enjoy working at the location that I'm at and I have a great manager. I also have coworkers that are willing to collaborate to get the job done the best possible way. My pay is decent enough to manage my bills with smart money decisions. The cost of living is constantly on the rise, the average decent and SAFE two bedroom apartment is at least $1,100. When it comes to work life balance, I am a single mom with a teenager that has four years left in high school. I have to work way too many hours to live comfortably and provide for his needs. I'm exhausted mentally and physically when I come home from work. I don't have the energy to do as many activities with him. The weekly pay is good when you work long hours but it's at the expense of sacrificing family time. I can only hope that FedEx would pay us an hourly wage closer to our competitor so that single parents like myself don't have to trade as much time as we do for wages. I've worked at several locations and different positions, I have built a family here for over 13 years with the people I've encountered. Overall good company, I would still choose to work here if I was looking for a job all over again.
The people at the job keep you encouraged and you meet a lot of great people on the road.
There are not enough resources to effectively accomplish some of the demands.

This could be a very good job. FedEx puts a slogan called the "purple promise" management makes it impossible to perform this promise and its sad. Management doesn't recognize jobs well done. There was a revolving door or excellent drivers they drove out catering to old unproductive drivers. Definitely need a Teamsters Union to protect and negotiate for these poor men and women but they threaten to fire you if they catch you talking about unity with a Union.
