    I worked for a Fedex Ground hub for almost 5 years, as a package handler. I did almost every task in the building below working in a management or supervisor role. When I left I was making 14/hr, and getting scholarship money. I could have made 14.5/hr if I worked the overnight.
    Ask me anything about what its like to work for that company, conditions, benefits, management, training, rewards, work load, w/e.

    They terminated me after this witch saw me step on a belt that was used for unloading

    For delivery truck loaders, does FedEx Ground have a required/expected packages per hour? If so, what is it?

    Why don't you organize so you can make a living and not get tossed out like trash when you make one mistake?

    What else did you do to get fired? And why would you jeopardize your safety by climbing on the belt? You didn't get fired just for that... Give the entire reason.

    Here's a question. Is your real "name" Dano?

    The hub i worked only had a few delivery trucks on door. Their delivery operation was very slow, so i imagine they just expected you to have the belt clean by the end of the night. The hub i worked delt with pups, the delivery trucks got very little flow.

    i had a history of abuses. i guess it was like that final episode of sienfeld where they were sent to jail for all the :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: they pulled, not one incident in particular. but the company had been really cracking down on all minor rules infractments, and i got pegged. the company changed a lot over the 5 years i was there

    don't go calling me a shill because I asked what else he did to get fired... ;)
    I've worked preload. No ones getting fired from that job just for climbing over the belt. There's got to be more to the story.
