Is this a joke ? A pie is perishable, besides drivers won't know what inside the boxes , that's bullcrapt man

I work for Fedex and i have no clue how it made it there in one piece at my hub that would be crushed and mangled and thrown and kicked around and machines throw it around for sorting . You have to move way to fast to care for every box and softly set them all down with the tight dead lines youd be waiting a week longer if they all were cared for carefully

I’m just saying I work at Fedex right now. This video shows nothing on how it really is. The workers there don’t give two shits about your packages. Thy have no problem throwing them kicking them or standing on them and smashing them. Then they’ll start laughing about it. The management sucks they don’t care about your packages they let the employees do what they want. Your packages don’t mean anything to the employees. The faster they throw your stuff the faster they get out

All of those boxes crashing against each other at 4:22 is exactly why my package gets damaged in the shipping process.

You will probably get fired first. Not many last more than five years. You have to be able to look past what you are doing and place yourself in a better future. It's called planning and persevering and it appears you have neither.

I work at FedEx and we toss your packages around
Wooded Acres (1 month ago)
Don't brag about it and you're not supposed to throw packages. Back in the day, handlers like that got counseled once or twice, then fired.

They should have sent 2 different pies at the same time to the same place, so the pie that was babysat by cameras will show that it was ok, and the other one would come all smashed and broken

It's all about the packing. You pack your item like it was a breakable piece of glass. Many refuse to adhere to that concept. I've seen boxes just fall apart and it's not because of us. It's because the box was in poor shape before shipping and was not taped with shipping tape among other reasons depending. Newsflash. Your package is NOT the only one running through the system and the sorts move way too fast to give each box the kid glove treatment. They should not be thrown, but they can be handled roughly, so pack accordingly.

Now their website says In Store Only. Guess shipping pies via FedEx resulted in too many unhappy customers with messed up pies than happy ones.

So during 2012 FedEx was great? What happened to it since then lol You can send a pie 6000miles within 24hours and i cant even get my package that was in New Jersey to where i live within 24 hours, its like maybe 800miles away from there to here, paid for 1 day shipping too lol loving 2019 so far .-.

i’ve gotten a cracked 32inch tv, a broken glass panel on a 1grand gaming pc, and a monitor that had a huge dent in the box, it was crushed (luckily it was on the back of the monitor n didn’t break it) but it looked like someone used it as a seat ..all shipped through fedex.. after that i hate using fedex . .. and they never leave the box where i ask them they just throw that shit in the most open spot in front of my house :/

I've almost died in a FedEx facility/trailer. They want you to rush, rush, rush. They put me in a trailer just minutes after I clocked in my first day. I'm 5'3" and was expected to move huge tires, full sized copier/fax machines into the truck and stack it like an intricate Tetris game. No one told me that the metal doors that open for the underbelly of the trailer can slam shut. They did. Right on my head which sent me through the air into the rollers feeding the boxes into the trailer. It took all I had to push through blacking out so I could get out of the trailer before hundreds of packages piled on top of me. My trainer was nowhere to be found so I just stumbled away with a pretty severe concussion and head wound. Took 4 minutes for someone to find me stumbling to find the bathroom so I could pass out safely. Years later I still have neck issues from the whiplash from that day. I was never compensated and was expected to return to work after being cleared by a Dr. Of course I never returned. These facilities are death traps and honestly should be better monitored for employee safety. A package can be replaced or refunded but not a human life.

You want your package there ontime you ship with FEDEX if you want it there in a few days you ship with UPS and if you want that package there in a year you ship with USPS. FEDEX the only way to fly !!!!

I worked there for 26 years and I remember when FedEx delivered me safely to a deserted island then crashed. I was forced to make some homemade shoes I then made friends with a volleyball. Thanks FedEx!
Rodless Reel (8 months ago)
FedEX is horrible. I'd recommend anyone else over them from my recent experience. My package "was" in my city of Houston, TX from China, and now it's lost in the "matrix" in Tennessee just waiting to go back to China for no apparent reason. They say it was "missing paperwork" but DHL got me my package from the same supplier just weeks before with no problem.

If that package handler wasn't on television, that box with the pie in it would have been thrown at the front door.

If that pie was shipped on 1 of 2 28ft drop frame trailers, it wouldn't stand a chance. It would've gotten crushed

I am working on a temporary job for vacations in a chat call center for Walmart and believe me when I tell you FedEx can't get a single delivery right. We send replacements and not even those get to the costumers. It's a pain in the ass for us because the costumers grade us with a 0 when it is all FedEx fault so I don't get the bonus I need to pay my bills thanks to the 0's. But I guess is our job.

Is he/she seeing someone else ? the first option is to ask him or her directly , If he/she says yes or you have a feeling that he/ she is really cheating then you have a lot on your plate to deal with now. But I think it is very common for them to say no, even when they are, so a no answer isn’t much help sometimes. Think about it, if someone is cheating on you behind your back it’s because they don’t want you to know. Either because they want to have their cake and eat it, or because they think of it as just a fling, or because they haven’t made their mind up whether to leave you or not and are trying to decide. I don't think you ought to wait around or trying all sort of apps before you have this done, as it might not work out and it might as well waste your time, you should talk to a professional like KEVINMITNICK7410(at)GMAIL(dot)COM who can help you retrieve your husband's Facebook,whatsapp,text messages ?
