    I had an interview with the Ground for a seasonal package handler on the 4th, and I was being told hiring start around the 20th something, but now it's 26th, and I haven't heard anything from them since. I believe season starts in November. Are they finishing up for the hiring seasonal handlers already? Should I give them a call on Monday?

    "Seasonal package handler" means disposable temporary employee. FedEx is not a good company to work for. If you want to be a seasonal handler, do it at UPS. If they like you, they might keep you on after peak.

    Good point and I you are being too nice. UPS is advertising $16.10 per hour for seasonal workers here in Massachusetts. FedEx has become beyond horrible, I am out after peak if not before (but that is a whole other story).

    I'm a sucker for stayin' at team purple for another peak... is that for a Driver or a Package Handler?, seems more like a temp driver (it's $16.40 per hour over in my state)

    Being a package handler during peak season is rough. Endless sea of boxes, cold warehouse, stressed out managers....

    I'll be in the office.

    Do you warm your Kool-Aid in the winter months? And does that strengthen it's effects?

    nvm the hard work. i cant even get the job itself. i called them yesterday but the lady said the guy wasn't there so i have to leave my info for him to call me back. again, so far nothing happening! UPS is nice too but they just pay right at minimum wage+union fees whereas Fedex pays like 2 dollars more with no union. when is the seasonal package handler usually start?
