    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.

    I have been working at FedEx full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Still one of the best employers in Memphis. Pay is not the greatest. Currently have a manager that understands work/life balance. Overall glad I am working here.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Hiring managers do not want to recognize your skills and talents that you have successfully proven at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be scared someone will get your job. Surround yourself with great people. Other employers love to hire FedEx talent.
