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

    Pros

    • Great Pay • Obligatory Good Benefits • Easy to move up if you work hard enough(took me 9 months)

    Cons

    • Part Time so I can only get 29-32 hours • Will be stressful until you get a routine and a plan going

    Advice to Management

    Equipment sucks, radios, MC55’s, and the scanners are pretty bad. Computers painfully slow too.

    I worked at FedEx Ground

    Pros

    Decent pay if full time.

    Cons

    You are lied to about the hours, you will work more than 4 hours almost every time, even when you only sign up for part time. The managers couldn't care less. The only good thing there is if you become a facer. Other than that, it is not worth your time.

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

    Pros

    benefits for part time, large company located everywhere, weekly pay

    Cons

    shifts change, no formal training for job, some part time positions may not get many hours weekly, lots of inexperienced managers

    Advice to Management

    develop a formal, continuous, and more personal training course for managers that includes, at a minimum: conflict resolution, employee evaluation, employee disciplinary actions, organization, prioritization, defining and assigning tasks, communicating and evaluating expectation, managing employee hours

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

    Pros

    The Job is simple, and you know what to expect everyday when you walk into the warehouse, and because of this there is some sense of stability and lack of stress. You get to move around and get excercise because the work is physically demanding. Shifts are usually only 4 hours

    Cons

    The work is so highly optimized and they will work you to the bone. A large majority of employees work part-time because the physical and mental committment to go full time is too much. Fedex Ground wants part-time workers because they do not want to pay for pricey health insurance ect. Therefore they make full-time work so miserable that most people choose not to do it. Having a lot of part-time workers is more efficient, and they can push these workers to work harder. You may experience pain and health problems as a result of this job. You may even get injured. I'm sure there have been many of employees who dissapeer from this job -either they get hooked on pain meds, or they take their own life. When people are treated this poorly, and are this low on totem-pole, their likelihood of an untimely death is much more likely. This job rewards the shareholders of fedex, not the workers. If you take this job, please be on the lookout for another one. Fedex is close to being a state-sponsored enterprise. They received a $2.4 billion dollar contract from the Department of Defense. They paid no taxes in 2018 and sacved a couple more Billion. Yet still many of their workers are living on wellfare, medicaid and foodstamps.

    Advice to Management

    Use the $1billion in tax savings, and millions of dollars in federal grant money, to convert part-time workers into full time employees. The majority of your part-time workers do not want to work part-time, but are forced to do so.

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

    Pros

    Apparently the heath insurance is good. $1,500 in college tuition

    Cons

    part time insurance doesn't apply to you until you work 1,000 hours 0 coverage for people that are out managers are really hard to find when you need them youll only be considered to move up the latter if you apply for seasonal peak positions.

    Advice to Management

    don't be afraid to help out your belt and get dirty.
