I have been visiting this site for a few weeks now and wanted to give my 2 cents. I am an employee and I am looking to leave fedex. It has nothing to do with the actual work, I don't mind the physical part of the job. It is the grind of fedex itself, day in and day out. Every day good people show up to work and the consistent theme is we are not doing enough. Do more for less reward. Split shift gone, 3rd shift gone,..cut hours on couriers.. ooh but do those sales leads and watch service agents get plenty of hours. Really, when did the tides turn on couriers where they became the albatross on fedex's back? I know we hear "Don't count on the ot"..if you work for the company, you know that's impossible. Does the company actual think that employees think it's so wonderful working there that basically living just above the poverty line is worth it? The job is only worth it if you get overtime and the sad part of it is that you need to commit your entire week to the company just to earn a decent wage. There are very few routes that can provide 10-11 a day on a straight shift. The bottom line is that you will make more money per hour this year than last but most likely you will make less money each year. There will always be those couriers who are working every hour and that makes it seem like there is a possibility to earn good money but that isn't the reality. I am leaving because I can pretty much predict how much I will make working there in 2 years , 5 years, 10 years and it isn't enough. I know I cannot count on the company any more and maybe I was naive to think I ever could, but it certainly seemed like a good place to work even just a few years ago.
