FedEx management is basing the current restructuring on a very basic premise: That anyone with a pulse can be a courier. It's that simple, and what they're offering these days in terms of wages and benefits "confirms" my hypothesis. They don't care if there is a talent/brain drain at Express, because DRA will take care of the gaps. Long-term, this is the direction the company is headed, which is basically Ground in a different-colored wrapper. The employees will be dumber, less capable, and generally inferior, which is what upper management is expecting to walk through the door and replace you. Never mind that DRA has been a disaster, or that it hasn't even been introduced at many stations. DRA will solve all problems, couriers will be efficient (enough), and Express will have wads of money to add to the profit coffers. If you're leaving, that's exactly what they want to happen, because your tatted-down, pierced, and GED-educated replacement will be "hand-held" by DRA into being a lean, efficient courier who will last about 6 months to a year before their GED kicks-in and tells them that they can get FT somewhere else for about the same money doing a job that is far less of a hassle. It will be fun to watch.
