    I worked at FedEx as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Fedex is a good workplace, pleasant, clean and very well organised. We had free coffee, coffee machine, they also used to deliver fresh fruit every week. Health insurance with Bupa was also on a plus side.

    Cons

    Too narrow minded when it came to changes. Work was monotonous, we were working almost as robots, not allowed talking much during work. No Internet use apart from during breaks. Overtime was not voluntary, we had to stay till workload was done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good management, perhaps would be better if it was sometimes a bit more open minded to changes.

    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.
