Soooooo Ive only been working at FedEx for approximately 1 very long year now and for most of it Ive been on the off load throwing boxes like a F****** lunatic. I remember the day I applied, I typed in Fedex.com and I applied under FedEx careers. Almost immediately after being hired I realized that I was in for trouble but decided to stick it out and go for the ride just to see if my initial thoughts were valid. I believe there is no such thing as a career job at FedEx anymore and if there is I sure havent seen any at my location. Im hoping to possibly move onto a courier position now that I've got my yr. in, although I have seen many people hired months after me move up or advance to a better position before myself. I believe those guys spent hrs. on there knees in order to do that and thats not how I roll. I've shown up on time every day never late, worked my pm shift and then rolled over to the am shift, never put in for a vacation and worked almost all my days off for the entire yr. without even as much as a thank you. The novelty has quickly worn off and the name FedEx has lost its sheen. I have been hearing horror stories about peak since day 1, well yesterday 12/ 12/11 was supposed to be the busiest day for shipping and I honestly couldnt tell the difference. Im sure it will pick up but yesterday was just an average day for me. When Peak is done with im sure they'll knock my hours back down to rhe minimum and this will be the "Thanks" that I spoke about earlier that Ill get. Ohhh! I take that back there feeding us bologna sandwiches and soup leading up to Chrismas so I suppose they really do care about me!
