Simply put...you don't have one unless you have your sights set on a career in management (good luck with that) or are content being an underpaid workhorse. Mr. Smith has created a scenario where unionization is almost impossible, so other than WAD, there is little you can do in response. If you are still young enough, I urge you to leave FedEx and find something (anything) with better prospects for a future. I foresee the PPP being eliminated soon, and higher insurance premiums for terrible coverage are a given even after what's going to happen in 2014. This is a company led by morons who manage from an ivory tower that is completely disconnected from the real world. Think about it. We have VPs who spend their day approving things like uniform requisitions and vehicle rentals. Yes, it actually takes the signature of a VP to get a new shirt or replace the vehicle that went in the ditch yesterday with something from Budget or Enterprise. The rest of the day they are reviewing the reports that monitor report compliance. Maybe they could spend their time doing something that is actually productive? It's only going to get worse as these braniacs figure out new ways to save money. The problem is, most of these brilliant plans actually cost the company money...it's that dysfunctional. Leave now, because there is more to come that's even more stupid than what they're already doing. There is nothing that should be keeping you here other than an inability to find other employment.
