The job is fairly physically demanding, but the staff there was always there accommodate when needed. The only bad experience of the job is that the drivers who are hired by a third party are extremely rude and arrogant to the loaders. Creating a toxic environment.
I loved working at Fedex, it was fun and they really take care of their employees. Its easy to move up quickly from one position to another. I only left to peruse my career as an electrican,

Your are not promoted base on your skill set. You have to belong to the right peer group that the ops managers create The ops managers and HR judgment are race compromised visual majority is in power over the minority regardless of your abilities. If your ambitious you will find your journey very stressful
I have been working for year and half got promoted three times. If you want to advance your future with them there is always away to help you.If you are a student fedex is your ideal place they have flexible hours and shifts and help with the cost.
I honestly used to enjoy this job a lot until I learned more about the company and management at this particular location. At the FedEx Ground station in Grimsby, training for package handlers is minimal. You learn so much more by talking to the drivers who can show you the best way to load the trucks but FedEx Ground management dissuades drivers from talking to the loaders because the drivers "are not FedEx employees". True, FedEx Ground doesn't hire the drivers, they hire contractors who bring with them a team of drivers and this is a terrible business model. It saves FedEx money but also allows them to use the contracts as a noose around the contractors' necks when they want. They bully the contractors into firing drivers if they don't like them by threatening to pull the contract or by preventing them from getting new delivery routes. If FedEx management really wants someone gone, they'll back the contractors into a corner. So there is a lot of mistrust and a lack of teamwork between FedEx management and contracted employees. As a package handler you may not see it as much. They are strict on hours and will kick you out of the building even if you try to stay behind and tidy up the trucks you loaded. Shame because the work pace is fast and it helps to stay a few extra minutes to catch any boxes you may have loaded on the wrong truck. Especially since they have "documented discussions" with you when you do misload boxes. It's even more a shame that by telling people to leave right away, a lot of package handlers get lazy and just leave the trucks a mess for the drivers - plus...
I really like working for Fedex. Benefits are great, people are nice but there aren't enough hours. You need to have another job in order to pay the bills. They continually hire more people and at times I have driven all the way into work for 5 am and been sent home.
Not enough hours
I worked for FedEx for almost 3 years, and was NEVER given the opportunity to move up within the company. Worked overtime, weekends, holidays--nothing. Twice they chose employees who had only been there for 2/3 months; another time I wasn't even given an interview. Management is terrible and give off an "all for one" attitude. All they care about is productivity and staying within hours during peak. Extremely back breaking work with NO AC during hot and humid weather. I was very upfront about my personal situations and struggles at work, and was given very little support from management. Co-workers were the only ones I could turn to (thank gawd). Human resources representative also refused to give my current employer my reference despite reaching out to him numerous times, which I'm pretty sure is illegal?
Pizza lunches, have the day to yourself, co-workers
Management, everything else
I love working here. It's a very busy place, but they make the work worth it. Good pay, and really good benefits. I just wish there were more opportunities to advance.
takes forever to advance unless you're willing to move.
I was offered Package Handler position at Dartmouth, NS location. Background check was completed in December 2018. I got a call on Jan.9th or 10th to offer me the position which I accepted. Orientation was scheduled on Jan 21st. The problem is when I reached for the orientation at that time I was told that position is filled like really? They called me and offered me the position and on the orientation day they are telling me that they hired more than required. Schedule for the job was suppose to be 3am-8.30 am. I changed my whole sleep schedule. I even declined another for this one. Very bad experience.
It is possible for those who wish to advance in the company to do so. The community there is strong, with group summary of what is expected for the day at the beginning of every shift. Hardest part of the job is lifting heavy packages. The management is extremely understanding of any issues you may have, and encourage you to come forward if there are any problems. Overall a great but hard job.
Long weekend Barbecues and great community.
Used to be excellent company and place to work, but now all they want is yes employee minions. Numbers numbers is all they care about, customer service doesn’t exist , damaged packages continue to get worse, and raises don’t happen anymore as they come up with excuses why they can’t afford to pay more but continue to brag about record profits . Lack of leadership, cauddle the lazy incomputant and demand more out of experienced drivers
Management, never enough done, pay structure
I have been a package handler for 4+ years at fedex ground and after doing some research lately have found out ups canada pre loaders and sorters are making $24.71 an hour. That is $7 an hour more than we make. I would say we need someone to organize us because we are getting shafted big time. It is time for fedex to do the right thing and start bridging the gap!
FedEx is a great place to work, even though it is very challenging at times. Supervisors that are fair and notice your hard work. Pay scale is way better than their competitors by 40% for entry level (Package Handler). I was shocked by that difference. FedEx understands for hard work should be reimbursed with good wages. For that, I commend them. Good luck.
Good wage for entry level
Heavy lifting but part of the job.
Management in the workplace was great. I've learned the ability of taking initiative to things that have to be done without being told. The most enjoyable parts of the job was communicating with my co-workers and getting the job done.
