Once again, and quite inexplicably, FedEx Express has been listed as one of "America's Top 100 Places To Work". Kudos to the FedEx PR machine for pulling another rabbit out of the hat this year. The corporation is already crowing about it and there are constant reminders about "how lucky" we are to be employed here. Good job Maury!!(VP of FedEx Misinformation). BS!!!!!!!!If you were actually went around the country and interviewed actual employees instead of reading about how "wonderful" FedEx is, a very different picture of the company would emerge. While some workers still love FedEx, most do not, and many share the sentiment that if FedEx is actually one of the best 100 employers, that there must be some pretty awful jobs out there. It's interesting that nobody ever mentions the low pay relative to UPS, the ridiculously long top-out times, or the fact that Fred Smith just reduced our pension benefits by approximately 75%. Why aren't these facts part of the equation? Instead, FedEx is praised because they gave a puny merit raise and didn't lay any hourlies off. Aren't reduced hours, slashing retirement plans, outsourcing of work, and 20 years to reach top wage defacto methods of reducing costs that are largely equivalent to layoffs? Yes, it's great to still have a job, but that job has been decontented, gutted from the inside-out so it's just an empty shell of it's former self. Envision the body of a Ferrari mounted on the chassis of a Kia and you've got a mental picture of the "new" FedEx. Amazingly, the press still thinks this is the same top-notch, innovative company that first came on the scene in the 1970's and revolutionized the way management viewed employees. It isn't. Sorry, but those days are long gone, and it's about time that the media got a clue about what FedEx is really like.
