Import Broker, Stansted Airport, UK

Import Broker (Former Employee)
Stansted, England

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

ProsFedex 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

FedEx cares about employees and there families.

Material Handler/Courier (Former Employee)

I worked at FedEx part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe benefits and the career advancements. QUALITY DRIVEN MANAGEMENT.

ConsI really cannot think of any thing negative. Will always live by the PURPLE PROMISE.

Advice to Senior ManagementAll managers that I came in contact with, all the way up to the managing director Mr. Bobby Willis treated me and other co-workers like family. And they supplied uniforms after 3 months, where as another did not. Very diverse and friendly.

Great job but not for everybody.

Package Handler (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN (US)

I worked at FedEx part-time for less than a year

ProsWhen I got this job it was simply a part-time job to make ends meet right after I had my wife had our first child. With that being said, it was a great job and if you are a hard worker that shows up on time you are definitely appreciated and provided with ample opportunity to move up within the company, probably more so than any place I have ever worked.

ConsI said that it was a great job, and it is, but it certainly isn't for everyone. I was a part-time package handler and I was offered a full-time position fairly quickly. As a package handler you load or unload trucks, that are dusty as all get out, it hot and cold environments, depending on the season. The dust probably bothered me more than the heat, I'd come home and blow black snot out of my nose on a regular basis. Still a good job though.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy experience with management was a good one.
