FedEx Ground is a great company to work with and for.
Management allows you to expand your knowledge of the job and company without limitation. The workplace culture is a safe , warm and friendly environment. The best part of my day is interacting with an array of different people as FedEx is such a diverse company.
Pros
good benefits, great management, safe environment

lack of communication in some departments.

Good place to work
Package Handler, Package Sorter (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 February 2018
It's not an easy job, and it isn't for everyone. Once you push through it you're getting good money for part time work, and if you're on the manager's good side they'l let you stay for more hours. Advancement is common within one year. Package handlers often go on to become managers and high level staff quickly. Work hard, get fit, benefits are paid for and there's even a school incentive program.

Women and women of colour are encouraged and often surpass their male counterparts in determination and becoming high level staff. Regardless, everyone seems to be treated with respect while I worked there.

The hardest thing is the willingness to get up and bust your butt that hard for another day but if you can stick with it then it's worth it and if you work hard enough it'll pay off in the long run, you can make a career here if you want to.

Management is OK, just like management anywhere you have to play the game, however everyone truly cares about safety and it's ingrained in the culture. Weekends and holidays off with the occasional optional weekend/holiday offered for more pay.

Its Alright
Package/Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 May 2018
FedEx provides unorthodox work methods. You are required to continue working till your work is done as a package handlers (regardless of hours). This really cuts into your work life. They have competitive benefits and pay but sometimes its not worth it as this job cuts into your life heavily.

Fast pace. Non enjoyable environment
Package Handler (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON8 January 2019
A typical day at FedEx Ground: it's no fun, backbreaking, and dirty. You always feel like your in competition with the new hires. It's a fulltime schedule with part-time hours. The managers and admins are very out of touch with the average worker. The work is unfair, as some will always strive for 100% and others will barely try and force the people who strive for 100% to bend over backwards and do all the physically demanding tasks. That being said, you will definitely meet some nice coworkers or managers and make friends. If I could change three things it would be: managers should be assisting package handlers by having a scanner and doing the work their employees are doing; instead of just sitting around on their phones, implement some kind of rotation with areas or the whole building, and finally if someone can't achieve the minimum, don't keep them; its unfair to everyone else.
Pros
Food & extra hours
Cons
Hot or Cold & laziness

Decent part time job that contributed towards helping pay bills.
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 December 2017
Typical 4 hour shift: have a team huddle, start loading delivery vans from conveyor line. Learned what the value of hard work is! can be moderately to VERY labour intensive. Management did their job. Workplace culture is decent, could be better. Helped pay bills when i was in a financial rut. Overall a decent company for what it is and offers.
Pros
Good for part time work, casual work, decent wage, and benefits.
Cons
Labour intensive, lack of decent job promotion.

Physically challenging
Package Handler (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 April 2018
Not one of the greatest jobs I've had. They didn't give me a realistic view of what the job entailed. I wasn't properly trained for it. Demanded a lot time beyond what was expected. Great benefits though.

Overall Great
Import Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON8 September 2017
I spent 3 years of my life with Fed Ex Trade Networks. I am happy to say that I also still retain the friends and colleagues from working there as well.
As with any employer there's pro's and con's; good and bad. Head office does come up with some unrealistic goal expectations, it is not however malicious, it's simply they're fairly far removed from the day to day to realize how unrealistic these expectation are.
As with any employer, you will have fellow employees who you just click with and those that you don't. It's all about working TOGETHER and figuring out the best way to do so!
The remuneration is definitely decent compared to equivalent employers. The benefits are as well. I did not leave there on bad terms or with hard feelings, I wanted to pursue my education and unfortunately they were unable to bring our office and staff with me to do so (I say this in jest) otherwise I would still be working there.
Pros
Learn a lot, great compensation, yearly raises
Cons
Very busy, can be long hours, sometimes head office has unrealistic expectations.

Favouritism
Senior Operations Administrative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 December 2018
Work place culture is not as you think of, you are hired on seasonal basis mostly and promise to get extensions but if they dont like you they only tell you by mouth not to show up for work tomorrow. Too much favourtism.

The Bad, Ugly and Good Part of Job.
QA- Operations Admin ll (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB7 August 2017
You learn from every phase of job, typical days keeps coming twice a week with busy schedule but more busy in septemeber to January (peak period), no matter how hard you work only minimal people recognise your efforts and ignore it, they see your failures but not your success and achievements, and the most enjoyable part is, if you like organising, calling customers, prioritising your work schedule and sometimes like working under pressure then this job is for you.
Pros
Great Benefits, Diversity of culture, Good For Partime work for students.
Cons
Will be tired after long hrs, not much opportunities to grow, Management doesnt focus on their employees.
