Hello all I'd like you all to know you are in the right place. If you're not working for Fedex, you must be doing something right. I worked as a courier for 7+ years. I just quit a few months ago. That was the best decision of my life. Now, keep in mind I get not get fired, never got a letter, etc. I am, however, aware of everything that has occured at that hell hole. I don't know about UPS, but Fedex has went downhill big time over the last 5 years or so. Raises went from twice a year to once a year. Unless you are a long time employee, you'll never reach top pay. Raises have also been cut down as the company has made it more difficult to get a decent one. While, for example, at one time you didn't have to get a lead (new customer account...like we have time as couriers to find the company new customers), it is now a requirement. I have seen so many hard-working employees get fired for the smallest of things. Single mothers, etc....it's so sad. Fedex loves to preach that they "never laid anyone off." Well, when you fire people left and right, who needs to lay people off? lol It's feast or famine too. Either they are FORCING guys to do 4 doubles a week, or they are dishing out the bare minimum in hours. Guys who have been with the company for 20+ years get crapped on by these ego-maniac managers. Sad. I got alot more. Who wants more?
