    I have a drug test/physical set up and want to hear from any other part-time employees with fedex or past employees (what i should expect in the first few weeks). Should I expect to work beyond or below the stated 30 hours? On average, how long does it take to get a full-time position?
    Thanks

    If you're not aware of it, I will fill you in. FedEx is in the process of downsizing to an almost all PT workforce. Anybody hiring-in right now will probably never get full-time. It all depends on your location as to how many hours you will work. At some locations, part-timers get all the hours they want, but at others they get minimum hours. You are guaranteed a minimum of 17.5 hrs per week, which may change, but the big thing to remember is that even if you are getting hours now, they will be a lot harder to get in the future.

    Try to get hired by UPS. You'll be glad you did. FedEx is no longer a quality company, or even a decent employer.

    That's damn good starting pay. I've been FT for 6 yrs. and only make $18.09 an hr.
    I grew up just South of Bean Town.

    We keep worrying about getting our pay reduced to comparable with Ground. Appears they are catching up!

    I'm seriously surprised about that starting pay.
    Central Mass is boonieville. $17.22 is pay scale H. Only third down from top pay scale.
