I've never had issues with FedEx, but it seems 90% of people have according to the comments.

Who' else is watching this while waiting for their package to arrive?

They took special care of that pie for you guys because you're abc news doing a piece on their company, randomly ship a pie and repot to us how messed up/smashed it is even getting sent to the next town over lmao

They walked it through because had that arm smashed it down a conveyor it would have been splattered. Lol

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.

Don't ever send anything with fedex their Customer service sucks make you wait and they will not let anyone pick up package even after you call the 1 800 number .... the refund takes forever to get

That pie would be upside down, and or on its side 20 times before it got there.

Sam Thompson (2 months ago)
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.

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.

I work at a FedEx ground warehouse and I can say during peak season, which is roughly from mid November to Christmas, was a bitch. Each door had 3 trailers they had to be filled with packages. One of them was nothing but pecan pies from Goode company. I hated peak season
