Worst job!! They make you do so much bs. So much orientation bs and then say our pay checks are week behind the f?? And I'm put in loading and that's the hardest. Making it so complicated f that is switching to security thought Fedex was good

Do they drug test? I live in California

So they don't drug test at all? Not even before you get the job? Also, what are the other shifts and hours?

the only thing I hate is my facility runs "extended" sorts so you're going 7 to 8 hrs straight. no break. can't even go to the bathroom because were understaffed so no one can cover your spot quick. during peak season when we ran 8 hrs we got a half hr break. what really pisses me off is when they decide to cut people they cut the lazy ones who show up late and don't work first. how about cutting the one's who work hard. its like if you're lazy you get treated better. but other then that bull shit it's a pretty cool job. simple as fuck. pay isn't terrible. even though its "part time" you're still getting 30 to 40 hrs a week. during peak I was getting 60+ hrs a week. this one dude actually got in trouble for working 85 hrs. corporate doesn't want you more then 40 if it can be helped but absolutely not more then 70. unless you have something like my facility we handle all the nonconverables. so big ass heavy boxes and carpets. a large majority of it requires team lifts unless you're like the hulk and feel like lifting 140lb trampolines by yourself. I see it more as I'm getting paid to work out.

Yo man I am supposed to do an interview with UPS and fuck it man Im gonna skip that shit. Fuck my life I got enough saved to live for about 2 years I might just wait until I can get a factory job around here from a new factory coming in to town. Fuck man. Im a bit of a fat boi but mah man I can hit up a gym every morning. Idk man tough times for capitalism because of all the addiction to technology and other things. Greed etc... Whatever happen to making a quality product with pride and knowing your neighbors and farming our own food. Now we are only focused on profit, hate or dont know our neighboors, and we eat poison. Fuck this life man. I might hide out with my 35k I got saved that will let me live for 2 years hopefully Jesus comes back by 2 years man.

People are so quick to put down FedEx gtfo with FedEx benefits I saw my former coworker purchase 3 vehicles and a house and she just retired after working there 21 years working part time so she was fully invested and was able to do other things while working at FedEx, and was able to purchase those things only through her connection with FedEx

This information might be useful and makes me feel less nervous. I just had an interview today and I finished my Background Information paperwork; passed it in this after noon. Now I'm just waiting for a message. I think I have a good chance I'll get in. I was a paperboy for a Free Magazine Company and those bundles are heavy (Carrying 2 or 3 Bundles [50 to 100 packs] at a time to my truck) and the Lawn work that I do, I lift a 70 pound lawnmower along with 4-6 barrels full of Grass which is probably 100 pounds each.

Operator B (4 months ago)
Generally yes, Mondays you're almost always going to get 6-7 hours. After Monday during the week the hours die down. Sometimes Fridays you get 3. Peak season though, you get all the fucking hours you want and can handle. It's tough work and most hubs don't pay very well. ( Some do pay good though) Stay away from trailer loading if you aren't ready to work your ass off.

this job fuckin sucks they overwork you like a dog when they are understaffed (which is often) and you get the same pay for doing two to three people jobs that didn't show up..if you are a good worker they will give you the most difficult trucks and give you the most work.Management constantly yells and treat you like a peasant.Waking up at damn near three in the morning to be worked like a slave for $200 or less a week isn't worth it you'll be too exhausted to hold a second job  lifting up heavy boxes four hours NON STOP will wear your body out...DO NOT APPLY  to this slavery ass job you will regret as soon as I find a better another job I'm quitting for good!!!!

after you attend the observation and apply online, the 3rd step would be the interview. I have a question, the day they call you in for the interview do they expect you to go in that day or do they let you know in advance that you will be having one??

Lens Optics Productions (6 months ago)
Good video! I recommend moving to a small warehouse company less people better pay and hours. FedEx is a good start. But iv found that small warehouse are "GOLDEN". Work your way up and get your forklift license become a manager faster. But if anyone gets a job into a warehouse and don't like it or don't see any improvement for you self. At least hold that job for 2 years and you'll be golden for better job and more competitive. Just letting everyone know.
8MoneyIzmyMission8 (4 months ago)
Fish On TV actually you are spot on about this. Most "smaller" companies the warehouse positions require you to have between 1 and 2 years of experience, so starting off at something like Fed Ex is a good opportunity to learn then go after the jobs that pay more, and is full time.
Carlos Jimenez (6 months ago)

+BookishDiva FedEx is always hiring for package handlers where I live. That's what has kept me from giving it a try. With the turnover rate being so high, it makes me think twice. Some do like it. I guess the only way to know is if I give it a go.

+Jazz Cat I honestly thought it wasn't for me😔. The lady section they had me training in was very rude and disrespectful and made it harder than it should've been.

so then FedEx ground is part time only ? or do you start off part time ? and what days off does everyone usually get ?

depends actually on the location. the one here in Durham NC was Tuesday Saturday Sunday and Monday I had off. but it is part time only like 20-25 hours per week. but start off a pretty good hefty pay rate. after like 2 months you get a $.50 pay raise. easiest money you'll ever make legally TRUST
