FedEx offers both early morning and early evening schedules. This is particularly ideal for someone looking to earn extra money throughout the year, while being able to remain committed to their primary F/T employer.
Ok I have been working as a loader/Sorter for about a month. Not much training and get to work atmosphere. During peak season you work around 8 hours without a break. No help unless you are backed up and packages or falling down or jamming up conveyor belt. Management is laidback and nice only good point.
Through hard work and dedication, I was promoted after a year. This was before I started my college career and wasn't a place I saw myself for the long-term.
It was hard work, but it definitely shaped the person I am today for the better.
Its a great place to work. Friendly staff with opportunity for advancement. Fast pace work environment. FedEx Ground is a great company to work for if you are a college student or seeking a career within logistics, transportation, business, IT.
At the location i worked at the environment was toxic. Managers would go behind each others backs to undermine and undercut their work. They also treated the regular employees as "less thens". Which in itself is a ridiculous practice because the majority of the actual production is not touched by managerial hands.
Using RF scanner to sort and distribute packages to all places of the World. I trained new employees to be there best at FedEx also to be work safe in a dangerous environment. Being alert while keeping production work standards to the maximum.
Raises every six months and fast advancement opportunities
Sore and tired but body will adapte to overwhelming environment
The job was easy, didn't have to be trained to long, they only thing was not ok was everyone breaking at one time, felt like we were being kids, and treated as if we didn't know what time break was over I guess it felt like we were being baby sat.
Breaks to short, not enough space to sit and eat, people were not to friendly there.
Extremely HOT in summer they shove a 8 hour day into a four hour day or less work isn’t hard but the way they turn new workers loose with no training is very annoying not only can they not use the scanner right but they also don’t know how to build a simple pallet and keep it square it’s just like a puzzle hello and I have never seen so many lazy young adults ...and it’s usually the lazy ones that get the lead position and manage the quads and some of the managers there try to befriend the young employees instead of being a manager the ones that do there job and do it well never get any acknowledgment only the ones that loaf around with there pants hanging off there back side like really who wants to see that ? And profanity is unbelievable if your work here you really need Jesus in your life also pay is not great insurance is awesome but after 8 years and still not at 14 dollars it’s a shame and there is a big turnover here some can handle it and some can’t for the pay it’s not worth it .
Heat, favoritisms, lack of Authority from management
The company don’t care about their employees. They have a “purple promise week” and Warehouse appreciation month but do nothing for the employees, you could get lucky and have one manager try to pull something together out of their own pocket, but the other managers don’t want to help. It’s sad. The younger employees don’t work hard and the older employees work too hard. There is no balance.
I've learned a lot from such a huge corporation such as Fed-Ex. This corporation exposed me to how a manufacturer and a commercial company works. From the management to the employee, the relationship between the two is vital to a working operation. The workplace culture was a vibe that made you work hard and diligent. Everyone has to wear protective gear so it felt like we were all teammates on the same goal .
