Courier (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 20 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
Great culture and Environment , hard working but rewarding

FedEx provides a fun working environment with a great corporate culture that promotes career and personal development. The management is always supportive and understanding of individual needs and fosters a good work/life balance.
Customs Broker (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 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.
Customer Service/Gatekeeper (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 May 2018
At FedEx, there is a great level of care when it comes to providing for the employees needs. The management is always carefully looking at various ways to improve their employees work life balance. Training will always be provided to be able to complete any task at hand.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 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.
Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 1 May 2018
Getting to drive around and make deliveries is nice because you get to meet new people around the city. Eventually you get to know your repeat clients and it's nice when delivering to businesses that allow pets.
The only part I was not a fan of was how competitive the company makes drivers. I understand the point to metrics but when all a company cares about is numbers, people tend to get left behind.
Cargo Handler (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 March 2018
This company really does take care for its employees, your safety will always come first no matter what and if in the event you are injured you will be taken care of. great open work environment you really do feel like your apart of the company cause they really care about what you have to say.
Java/J2EE Developer (Current Employee) – Brussel-Hoofdstad – 2 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!
They treat the contractors differently than the employee.
Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 2 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!
I applied as a temporary worker and have been treated very well. I have always been able to work overtime if I wished, but never felt pressured to do it. Overtime is calculated on a daily basis and not weekly so that means even if you work one day a week you are eligible for overtime (~25 $ an hour). Starting salary is around 17.50, but after a couple years you'll be up to 25$ hour. which is something like 37.50$ for over time.
My station has been super supportive while I've been there for almost a year. Positions open up often and it's easier to apply and get accepted since I'm already in the company.
No matter if it's the couriers, the package handlers, managers or customer service reps, everyone is helpful and happy.
If you're a courier get ready to know your city like never before. You can say you know it but if you're anything like most new couriers you'll have trouble for the first 1-2 weeks. The company doesn't give you a route to follow, you have a sector and must find out how to deliver all your packages before their commit time. Fedex provides maps but you might want to figure out a more efficient way of getting everything delivered/ picked up.
If you need to do a driving simulator to get the job take it seriously. Even though it isn't realistic drive slower while it's raining or you're around a lot of people/ cars/ city center. Signal, don't press the gas too fast either.
I highly recommend taking any position to start just so you can get into the company!
Overtime is calculated on a daily basis and not weekly, lots of hours, great environment, great benefits
A little stressful, you'll need to know how to keep your cool
