There has been a lot of talk lately about "lazy senior couriers who have it made", pay inequity, vacation inequity, and work inequity. Well, guess what? Everything that makes FedEx an unfair and crappy place to work can be blamed directly on Fred and his team of idiots in Memphis. As others have said, your only reward(s) at this company come from being here a long time. It is not the fault of senior employees that you aren't topped-out or get to take your vacation in February. Nor is it their fault that they get preferred routes. All of that is dictated by policy which emanates from IQ Central in MEM. Here's something for the bitchers and moaners to consider: You won't likely be at FedEx long enough to make it a career anyway, which is exactly what Fred & Friends want to happen. They'd like you to bust your hump for 4 to 5 years, and then leave. Most of you will have figured it out well before that, but if you're free-basing the Kool-Aid, it could take the full 5 years. Stop blaming your fellow employees, point yourself toward Memphis, and flip old Freddie the bird, because all of this shat is from him, on him, and in him. Got it?
