Does the Louisville Hub really hire everyone with no criminal record?

    I have a few friends that work at the Louisville hub and they swear that the turnover rate is so high that pretty much anyone who wants a job as a package handler gets one as long as they don't have a criminal record. Is this true or even plausible? I know that the Louisville Hub is enormous.

    FedEx Ground will hire you, but you MUST have a criminal record. We have package handlers too. But don't let the name fool you, they are more like package throwers. You start out with the simple football toss, or the underhand softball toss if that is too much. Once you have mastered that, you get trained on the conveyor belt slide, where you slide heavy boxes all the way to the end of the belt without letting them hit the floor. The trick is to know how much momentum you need so they don't fly off the end of the belt and into the wall. Once you get that down, you learn the ultimate of all package handler moves.... the behind the back toss. Only few can master this.
