FedEx? so good at handling your parcels that parcels say "this way up" and you see their boxes on their sides. Look closely. What a joke

I’m sure one of my packages are there for sure

Random fun fact about FedEx and their superhub, it's so big that it has it's own zip code.

Some people seem to think online shopping is a magic thing, that they just order online and in a few days the thing just shows up at your house. They don't see all the ugliness that goes on in the process. I much prefer to shop in person, preferably small, locally owned stores.

Fedex does not care about it's employees. Due to their negligence, I lost a pinky finger and now I won't be plucking strings on my guitar the same way...less in fact since I used to play Flamenco style. They left me to bleed after I was blown off the truck as all the trucks are improperly loaded and not secured. I flew 9 feet through the air and after I hit the floor, not one person in that warehouse asked if I was okay while I was bleeding. No ambulance ...they stuffed me in an employee's car after 30 minutes of debate about what to do. Then...the employee/driver could not find the hospital. He drove into TDK corporation as I told him..."There's no hospital here...this is TDK." Anyway... Fedex was fined with two violations... Failure to call for an Ambulance and Improper load of trucks with no safety straps securing the loads. What did I get for losing a finger...? Nothing except medical attention and surgery. Since it's Workman's Compensation, you're screwed. You get NOTHING. Think easy on this one...it's a no-brainer when children are running the show. You are nothing but a slave/animal with zero rights. Found out a visitor was chewed up by one of the roller gear machines that was supposed to be turned off for repair. It seems that whomever had the key turned it back on before any repair. The woman got caught in it and she was chewed up alive. This happened in around early 2016 according to the employee that shared this in orientation. There's quite a bit more...best wishes to anyone that decides to put their life on the line for a corporation that could care less if you live or die.

ive never had a FEDEX package arrive on time..not even if i pay the top price for overnight shipping..costs me thousands of dollars once when i couldnt get a product to a show. NEVER AGAIN will i use FEDEX.. USPS has never failed me. which blows my mind cause i hate government and they usually suck at anything they do but apparently they can get a package from point A to point B on time every time..

I used to work for fedex, that job sucked ass. The would only give me 4 hour shifts and expected me to Load or Unload a minimum of 3 trucks a shift. Now tell me does moving a 3-4 fully packed houses worth of shit and neatly stacking all the items for 12 bucks an hour in a 4 hour shift sound reasonable to anyone else.

I worked at ups for about 3 months in a completely automated facility where the only hands the package touch are people like me unload the box off a trailer and people like me to reload it on a different one and I can guarantee that pie would have been demolished even during offseason. One of my fellow employees told me he had a HEAVY ceramic toilet that he picked up alone and sort of dropped on the conveyor belt, whole thing shattered and a plume of white dust lifted above the box. He didn't tell the supervisor and didn't feel compelled to. Our supervisor/swamped by the admin who makes us do too many bays and too many trailers hated admin and laughed his ass off and said f**k admin, the day my buddy told him about it. There are no repercussions for those that break stuff, just sort of happens. No incentive to be nice to a package. But I did feel personal gratification when I was nice to a box, about a year before the job, I bought a laptop online, opened it when it arrived at my casa. Screen was shattered. Was so upset but after working the job for months I completely understood how it was broken and wasn't even mad anymore. Everyone should just assume their shit comes broken when you buy it online. Your playing with fire.

This video is BS.. I know when the packages are on the belt get jammed they will go up and start kicking the boxes to free them.. I have seen this myself in person. I guess that is why the carried the pie in person to one spot to another.

This hardly shows the true nature of how Fedx operates normally during the holidays. They knew he was carrying a pie and went the extra mile because they knew they were being featured on TV. Let's send some hidden cameras in and see how a pie fairs during any time of the year.
Jesse Norwalt (6 months ago)
This video is an example of how incredible capitalism is. About a dozen people who don't know or really care about each other do work to accomplish a goal for probably 10-20 dollars. If this guy would have tried to bring the pie himself to Hawaii it would have cost thousands. Specialization of labor is a miracle honestly...

What they don't show you is the irrepressible carpal tunnel syndrome you are left with after only three days of work as a package sorter/truck loader. There are no breaks, no stoppage of work. Just unbearable loud noises and voices urging you on to greater production. I was so beat I dozed off in truck after one brutal rush of packing a truck. They fired me. I said thank you went home and had the best sleep of my life. Was not worth the $12.00 an hour.
