Can you skip your break and drive 9 hours like a psycho?
Courier (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON1 November 2018
3-4 days a week your manager will try to bully you into skipping your lunch break because they want to overload you with packages. Some days your in trouble for not taking a lunch break, some days they are asking you not to take one.

The other jobs they also under staff you on as well. a 4-5 person team will have 3 people scheduled and you just have to deal with it. You ask your manager about it and they pretend they have no idea whats going on. HR department never calls you back so if you have an issue with anything forget getting any help.

This is a company that makes up new rules every other day. There are so many rules that they conflict other rules they have given.
The new rules are set to always take something away from you, never benefit your day at all.
Pros
Pay is ok if you stay a long time, benefits are ok
Cons
Starts close to minimum wadge, hard work in hot/humid conditions, no lunch break most of the time, expected to commit to bizarre work hours, very strange managers

Customer Service Rep - doesn't feel like a "Career"
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC19 August 2018
Working in the Richmond Call Centre is basically a job... would not consider it a career. I love the employees I work with, but it is extremely hard to advance or move into other departments within the company unless you are willing to "outwait" years for employees to retire or quit.
Call Centre work is high stress, management worries a LOT about stats and being world class. They mean well, but the company is so big that you are sometimes just treated as a "number".
Very high attrition in the Call Centre... 2 groups of new hires are trained every year (16 people in a class) and less than half are still there a year or two later. Most people will stay for a bit and then find something better.
Benefits are good... pay is alright. It's a job.
Booking vacation days is a bit frustrating... not enough "slots" to book off for such a large group. You won't get any days off near a long weekend or summer time unless you have a high senority.
Pros
Coworkers are awesome
Cons
High stress, management can't pay attention to everyone

Not All It Seems To Be
Customs Broker (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC17 May 2018
Management is not organized. They don't hire enough people for vacation coverage. There is no such thing as work -life balance. They do not recognize productive employees, but will support the complainers and lazy ones that stays with them for years. They will not reward you for your performance or experience. They give you the image of a professional environment by providing training materials such as QDM and work ethics which they themselves can't recognize and apply. They are a brand that I lost faith in.
Pros
Competitive wages and benefits
Cons
No work-life balance, unprofessional environment.

Great company to work for
Courier (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON20 June 2018
One of the best companies I've ever worked for . Management is great and the way the way they treat their employees is reflective upon this . Pay is great compared to many other companies. Lots of opportunities for advancement . The only negative about working here is the time it takes to get a full time position . Overall , I am proud to be working for FEDEX Express
Pros
Company culture, pay, benefits
Cons
Getting full time

It's good but try Ups or Purolator first, they are much better as compare to FedEx Express.
Cargo Handler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 July 2018
It's a good company to work only if you couldn't get a job at UPS or Purolator. But keep always trying at UPS or Purolator even you got a job at FedEx Express.

Big difference is the pay and benefits between FedEx Express and UPS.

At UPS you will reach to the top rate pay within 2 to 3 years whereas at FedEx Express it take 15 to 20 years to reach at top rate. After 5 years you will only reach upto mid top rate pay at FedEx Express.

Huge difference in benifts between FedEx Express and UPS. At FedEx Express you need to pay for the benifts whereas at UPS you don't.

If you're interested in further studies or further personal development UPS pays upto $9000 /year as a tuition fees + $ 300 for textbooks etc whereas at FedEx Express you will only get $1500/ year to part-timer and $2500/ year to full-timer as a tuition fee.

UPS and Purolator both have unions so they do care about it's employees whereas FedEx Express cares about its profit.

Longer you stay in this company it's getting harder to leave this for your betterment. I was told by my seniors to keep trying at UPS or Purolator asap after getting a job at FedEx Express due to which at last I just got a position at UPS. Thanks to my seniors.
Pros
Good place to work but if you don't have any other options
Cons
Pay and benefits are not competitive to it's competitors.

Low paying, very hard work and absolutely terrible job.
Cargo Handler (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB19 October 2018
Very hard work. Managers yell and belittle you if you work too slowly. Its literally throwing boxes onto a belt for 5 hours. Only the favourited workers get full time or decent hours. These favourites also are disrespectable and get away with it too. They used to swear and threaten me. When reported management did nothing. Not all workers are bad there but most really are. You also work in high heat while the managers sit in air conditioned offices. Feels like the military rather than a job you’d enjoy and worked hard in school to get. Please trust me as I used to work here.
Pros
Free uniform. Employee parking availible.
Cons
Very rude coworkers. Management overworks workers and offers few hours.

Sad support for long time employees
Courier Driver (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC2 January 2018
If it does not go their way, they abandon you. I put 5 years in, literally working in excruciating pain (and they were aware of it) building great relationships with my customers and co workers. And they used, partially, my 'falsified timecard', I came in to work at what appeared to be on time, but as I waited until I was done my ramp work to sign in, and as I signed in at 11:00 AM, yet started at 11:06, was accused of falsifying documents. I started my job 15, 20 and even 30 minutes early almost every day! Bad managers, that only look out for themselves, not looking at the greater good!
Pros

Cons
Management, all the way to the top!

Good place for work if you are a 9-5 think inside a box person

Not a bad place to work if you are not ambitious.

Lots of old conservative employees at management and sr management level making any shift towards more dynamic environment literally impossible.
Pros
safe work culture
Cons
Out dated HR practices - super conservative management

Working as a contractor
Java/J2EE Developer (Current Employee) –  Brussel-Hoofdstad2 January 2018
Working as a contractor/vendor you don't have too many benefits as the employees have. Career advancement is not very straightforward! You have to manage your own career path and there are not too many opportunities for advancement. If you don't ask for feedback for your work they will not provide any for you!
Cons
They treat the contractors differently than the employee.

Fun Place to work at
Opérateur (Current Employee) –  Mirabel, QC12 December 2018
My biggest enjoyment is the teamwork!! You're never left on your own, there's always someone willing to help you no matter what the case may be. The workers there are funny and affectionate and it does feel like you're a part of a big family. Another good things is that they value everyones security above all else.
Pros
Seasonal competitions and winnings, Free breakfast and snacks from time to time, excellent managing team and short hours
Cons
Lockers are filthy

The worst company you can work for in GTA
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 May 2018
The worst company you can work for in GTA.
no career advancement whatsoever, repetitive tasks
horrible management , you will last only if you are Yes man type of employee , if you are talented don't waist your time working for kind of Mafia Management , all of them are family friend
no chance for regular employee to move on and no room to grow, you will do the repetitive task until you burned out.
