    Pros

    steady job, great on the job training and great support at your finger tips on the computer as well as the teams if you need questions answered.

    Cons

    due to the nature of the business your days can be very long and not much chance to move up and advance your career unless you have a degree

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to promote more from with in based on experience and length in the company

    Current Employee - Package Handler Part-time in Corpus Christi, TX (US)

    I have been working at FedEx part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great environment where safety is number one. Job is easy to understand and perform. Team work is fostered at all levels and benefits such as tuition reimbursement are available.

    Cons

    The job requires a lot of lifting and carrying of heavy and awkward objects such as tires and axles. It is in a warehouse type building where cold and heat can seep in. Working around hazardous materials such as containers filled with chemicals and flammable materials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mission of the company is always reiterated and enforced among the employees and is always demonstrated by the management.

    Pros

    Ethical company with a work life balance. As a professional staff member you have give and take on both side. Balance, not perfection is the goal.

    Cons

    It's still up to an individual to set boundaries to maintain work life balance, but in my experience this has not been an issue.

    I have been working at FedEx full-time

    Pros

    Good compensation, better than average benefits, historically long term job satisfaction and most people stay at least 10 years, but many stay much longer

    Cons

    There are not a lot of levels to advance through promotional opportunities. You cannot come in with an expectation to advance at the rate some other companies have ... be patient, wait for your time, repeat if necessary.

    Pros

    pride in the brand, benefits are good especially travel perks; should be more to say but cant really think of anything else; tuition reimbursement is great

    Cons

    too metrics focused. not focused enough on the people; constant pressure to do more and they don't seem to value experience anymore. very focused on new people. definitely not interested in using the right people for the right jobs. continuing to downsize through attrition just to hide what you are doing is not working. Pressuring people by having them do 3 and 4 people's job is wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop overworking management and employees and allow them to do the best job possible.
