    Without actually polling everybody,
    I think we have one with about 20 yrs. that is not topped out.
    This guy likes to call in sick a lot so, with the old system, this could totally keep him from top out.

    I told my senior they should not advertise about top out pay anymore since no one will ever reach it. Just a way to hook people in the beginning. He agreed. Heard a newbie ask him how long will it take to top out? SM said its not possible. Guess he's not that bad of a guy, at least he's honest.

    but by and large, most of them are standing in line awaiting their turn to sodomize the couriers (and others) as well.

    I hear some of them run back and cut into line after they've already had their turn. Kind of like the guy that rides the Teacups all day long at Disneyland, every day of the year.

    And while the act might disgust them, they do it anyway because the FedEx corporate culture dictates that they must do it or lose their job. I'm sure a few of them who have a conscience go home and have trouble sleeping or have a couple of drinks so they can feel better about what they're doing.

    Most, however, seem to be the corporate "climbers" who will trample anyone or anything that stands between them and a higher place in the FedEx heirarchy.

    Unicorns are just horses with party hats.

    21,if you remember a few years ago lets say you were a crr/hndlr at top of range and took a crr or swing postion the max you could move was 6% which knocked you down to the middle and to never see top of range again even if you moved in less than 24 months.Pay restructure,no benifit to try to better yourself,just another beat down.We have a few of these at our station.That max 6% the middle got last year,I don't see it happening.Remember Uncle Fred said 1.7 bil. net. for the next three years.

    You've met my SM I see. I believe he would pimp out his own mother if it ment another rung on the corporate ladder.

    Actually he said they'd increase profits by $1.7Billion in 3 years. They netted $2.1Billion last year, projecting $3.8Billion in profit by 2016. The majority of mid-range employees will be looking at 3% raises.
