Grossly underpaid. good people, good managers, fun and really active job. for the first 5 years you are stuck on 19 bucks per hour. no advancement at all. good benefits.

The work and benefits are great, but extremely taxing, stressful and hard on the mental health.

The leaders in the work place would set a poor example and then anyone following said example would get reamed out in a "pleasant" way. Management doesn't listen or care about what the staff have to say about the work place. Nothing changes. Despite being "non union" they operate as a complete union company, but without an official union body to file grievances with. They claim to value safety, but lack an understanding of what that means and are rife with safety concerns. Very much a double standard with staff and leaders/managers. Management and leadership are not held to account for their actions or lack thereof. Poor performing employees are rewarded while high performing employees are penalized. Overall, fedex could be a great employer if they only made the connection between leadership and the rest of the employees, or that EVERYTHING rises and falls on Leadership. If the management would take ownership of their responsibilities and actually cared. They talk a big game, but when push comes to shove, they act very small.

Not fun

They work you hard, the hours are always changing and while the pay is not bad, it doesn't feel good enough for the amount of hard work you do. Plus it's way too hot in the summer because for some reason fed ex can't afford fans. Not to mention they won't allow you to bring in your phone. Makes you take your steel toe shoes, that they require you to wear, off to enter or exit the building. Kinda ridiculous

Pros

Pay is okay I guess

Cons

Extremely physical, no air conditioning, overworked

Fun place.

Enjoy the coworkers, makes the morning fun. Once on road it can be stressful, especially covering routes that you havent covered in a while, but once you get to know the routes, its nice to see different places that the station looks after that you might not normally be able to see or would have seen.

Ah not the worst place to work.

If you live in a bigger city potential for decent overtime hours. Pay sucks to start out won’t get to max pay till like 10 years in which then is still not enough to put up with some of the headaches there are. Management is something else, goofs at that.

Pros

Freedom of being on the road on your own

Cons

Pay

Fun job but gets monotonous after a bit

Pretty good workplace. They have a D3 program (dedicated delivery driver), which is a delivery-only role. Flexible hours, sign up for shifts weekly if you want to work. Want a couple weeks off? Just don't sign up for any shifts. Mostly residential deliveries, no pickups, no collecting payments, mostly light packages that do not need a dolly to carry. On the flip side, the purpose of the D3 program is to deal with fluctuations in volume that is typical of a courier company. During non-peak season, expect to get significantly lower hours and cancelled shifts.If you're interested in becoming a FedEx courier, feel free to apply as a D3 driver. Couriers are periodically hired internally, and D3s get priority. This is a good workplace and a pretty chill job if you want some driving experience under your belt, but probably not something long-term, unless you want to do the typical FedEx growth thing of courier for roughly 7 to 10 years, and then hopefully bag a management role.

Pros

Chilled out job, management cares about you and does not pressurize you into unrealistic expectations.

Cons

D3 program needs better hours.

Good place, long hours

It’s a good place to work good benefits, good experience, but long hours especially during the holidays. I do the night shift. I recommend the earlier you start the better.

Very fun people to work with

Work is demanding but can be very stressful and busy during peak days and seasons like Christmas and days after holidays. Overall the pay could be better but still good paying.

Not enough hours and also lied about tye benefits

So when I was interviewing with them, they told me that I can work flexibly and can select my shift and routes. But when I joined the company they didn’t have any fixed schedule and I was the on-call guy they would call if they were having some load. So basically, I was only getting roughly 10-12 hours per week. Otherwise, overall work was great.

Pros

Good work culture, good basic pay

Cons

Not enough hours, no proper training .

Stressful, overly managed, would not recommend.

Stressful, overly managed, some people that work there(usually senior courriers) are not very nice people, pay is not that great for the tiresome work you will put in. You will be treated like a number and things you think would be simple are made complicated because of too many managers.

Not a Family friendly job

If you have a family don’t do it. You’re just a number and they don’t care about your needs when it comes to balancing family and work life. Horrible management with lack of empathy or care. Don’t expect anything at Christmas time. Work hard with horrible pay, at the expense of yourself.

Pros

Free lunch once in a while

Cons

Long, all over the place hours

Enjoyable work

Been a very long time but I finally love my job again and it feels great. Everyone who works there, from the bottom to the top, are incredibly friendly, helpful and happy go lucky. A rare thing in big companies nowadays.

It’s good to work in early morning shift. Management is really good and always helps in all the way. Staff is really helpful and company has really good benefits

Better places to work

Wages suck big time. Hours can be hard to get. People that don’t want to do the work just complain about it and get given less while those that show they can handle the work get more dumped on them.

Great job

I loved working as a courier. I enjoyed getting to know customers. Great exercise and keeps you busy the whole day. Difficult weather makes the job less fun. Fun to drive big trucks.

Great place

FedEx is a great place to work, I got to learn a lot about how it is on the inside (very informative). The only issue was that they want you to only focus on their company, nothing else in your life matters. Other than that it’s good to give it a try.

Pros

Pay is great and the trainers are very nice, helpful and patient.

Cons

Don’t care about work/life balance, your job matters more than your personal life and that includes health (Doc Appointments)

Great place to work

Would go back to work for them definitely, great benefits and pay. Incentives to stay and bonuses also available. Mostly solo work but lots of teamwork too

Great training , Responsible expectations

A real effort to train their prospects. Constant support once your involved. They understand the difficulties of weather related problems and take your safety and accessibility seriously. No undo pressure to deliver at all costs .
