    Hey guys, I'm a Fedex Ground package handler, and have been for two weeks. I find it asinine that they want me to load, 3 heavy load trucks in only 4 hours on my first week there. I'm seriously considering quitting, however I don't think I could handle 2 more weeks there. Should I just chunk up the deuces, or should I tough it out and finish the 2 weeks? I don't want to :censored2: over my co-workers and drivers, but I can't stand it there anymore. Also one of the trucks I load is solely by address, and no one else can load it, how bad would it mess things up?

    Be professional and do the right thing. Two weeks notice.
     
  3. That would mean,he has to work 2 more weeks.

    You've been there 2 weeks. They survived without you before. Package handler turnover is incredibly high. They won't even blink if you tell them today is your last.

    Look at it this way. Would they give you 2 weeks notice if you were getting canned?

    Waaaaaahhh....mommy, it's too much work, come pick me up. I was just talking to a new guy yesterday on the belt...he's been here a month. He was a loader at Fedex for 3 years. He said the volume we load at ups is twice what he used to load....so again....waaaaah. Quit.

    At least you have great benefits and the opportunity to go full time.

    He said he averaged 700+ pieces a day...on a light day I have 1200 or so.

    As a loader, I also make more an hour than most fedex Ground drivers....but that's because I didn't quit my first week when I was making $9/hr like a whiny little *****. Wah, boxes are heavy.

    The world won't stop turning when you quit. Leave at break; that's always a classy move for a slackard. Call ahead and mommy will have your snack ready when you get home.

    And what's the motivation to stick it out at ground?
     
  17. Atleast stay there,until you find another job.

    A paycheck until you find something better?

    I'm not saying he should not give any notice but there is definitely no motivation to stay. If I were him I would go to apply at UPS put in my notice either way.

    Hush I've. You're talking like a responsible adult, NOT living in Mommy's basement.
