It is a good company for those starting a career, as people are very professional and provide you with the necessary support for the good performance of your work. I recommend it to anyone starting their career ..
Opportunity to advance the industry. We all work together for the greater good. Family and safety are paramount. The management allows you to make your medical and dental appointments and is generally concerned about your family’s welfare.
FedEx ground is an ill managed company. With no regards for the safety of its employees, willfully sending them out into a global pandemic with decades old equipment with no PPE or concern for the employees health.
The leadership is some of the worst and feel as if you shouldn’t question anything they say nor do they work with you to do more then just what you do. The pay is great but they hire to many people so you’ll only make the bare minimum
I was able to attend safety classes, the most enjoyable part of the job is working with customers and meeting new people. I ran long hauls for Fedex and they gave my company a chance to run under their company..
Great money and benefits as long as you can survive the first 20 years! Seniority is EVERYTHING!! New hires get the leftovers and do more dock work than actual truck driving. SO until you've outlasted the senior drivers you get cut often and work hourly on the dock. My last week with FedEx was on labor day week, I got 8 hours holiday pay and 2.5 hours on the dock. That was after being there a year and a half!!
Great company to work for. Management was extremely positive and encouraging, as were the rest of the office staff. Ongoing training and safety meetings were implemented throughout the year. Fellow drivers were always willing to help each other especially during weather that was difficult to handle. Safety of drivers was always a priority which certainly helped with moral.
The runs that were offered were steady, Monday to Friday which is an asset in planning outside of employment.
Incentives included activities such as, driver appreciation days, golf tournaments, bowling and driver's Olympics, which always helped to boost moral and maintain employee loyalty.
Your at the mercy of others and whom is the favorite to Linehaul and or your contractor. my contractor made us go 3weeks without heat in the winter time. Has no concern of your health. I am asthmatic and when my codriver would take off my contractor would drive with me. He would smoke regardless and on a regular basis even after pointing it out more times then I care to count.. contractors lie about the job or your pay.
Part time , station to station. Early am shift work Tuesday thru Saturday. Help with air packages, unload aircraft and load truck with freight .deliver packages to wharehouse .move empty canisters yo proper wharehouse.
I loved working for this company and recommend it to anyone that want to go for their own personal goals. You will have to put in a few years before you start seeing better pay, take a long time to get $$
A typical day at work consist of co workers talking about each other.
Management are bigger bullies then the co workers. They hire family members and cover up for each other.
there is no workplace culture
the hardest part of the job was dealing with the office politics
the most enjoyable part of the job is leaving everyday....
I enjoyed working for FedEx Freight, and were it not for the fact I moved out of a hub area I would still be there! The supervisors were attentive and listened to driver/dock worker input and safety... that was really an important factor in my working there. The company is very serious about safety. Which creates a work environment that is fun to work in.
Great benefits, excellent supervisors to employee communication, genuine concern for our safety
