What our users are saying about working for FedEx
It was only seasonal but honestly had a great time and met plenty of fun people that I get to say hi to when they bring me stuff that I’ve ordered!
The culture has changed a ton in the 4 years I have worked with the company. They created a philosophy called "PSP" stating if the company puts their people first the profit will follow. They have turned so far away from that and it's clearly showing. People are quitting left and right, and spouses getting new jobs in different cities is pretty much grounds for quitting because getting relocated is hard. Managers are under a ton of pressure, resulting in micromanaging, even through the profits are up. It's very sad to see the company turn into this, because when I first started I felt like, for a big corporation, everyone was appreciated.
worst company to ever work for
Compare how long it takes for men to get 1st promotion to how long it takes women with the same qualifications and you'll see a huge difference... huge wage and promotion gap.
To clarify, I don't think FedEx as a company is bad. On the contrary, they work extra hard to ensure that everyone is included. But the management team at my location does not share their morals. Not only do they not provide equal opportunities for women, minorities or the disabled, but they negatively reinforce the actions of those who speak out about their experiences.
First place I've worked in twenty years where an employee left condoms laying out in the open and nobody (management) really seemed bothered by it.
Great place for any sex to work
Fedex freight to be specific. The chances of moving your way up in the company as a female are slim to none. We have approximately 2 female supervisors, for the entire center. We total at around 60+ supervisors for our center. This company is very sexist and it goes both ways. They do not like men in the office and do not like woman on the dock (which is where you would have a chance to move up at). Think of a job from the 1970s-80s for woman...and that is precisely how things are ran. I face sexual harassment, I am looked down upon as a worker because of my gender, this is by far the least female friendly place to work.
Maternity leave does not exist. Having a baby is considered a disability.
low wage, unless you are in with the "IN" crowd you will not succeed here, only friends move up. very little time off. manager was a former bouncer at a bar, promoted because of friends. poor leadership
I worked for Fed Ex for three years and I tried very hard to climb the ladder. It was obvious that I was the most capable to run my department however the sexism that I had to endure even to get the basic respect for ability took years. I have to spend twice as long as a man to gain acceptance in my position. When I was first posted to the leadership position it was because there was too much of a man-centric cult in that department and the leadership in said department got together and said "we don't need any women down here" and " we will run her out before too long". I stuck it through and like i said became the BEST department lead that section had had in yrs and as soon as i stepped to the side to try my hand at another department my worth was forgotten and I was NEVER (or begrudgingly due to emergency circumstance) given the opportunity for leadership again.
If you want to be a female exec, there are opportunities at FedEx but only if you are not a mother or have a spouse who stays at home. If you have to flex because of family reasons, forget promotions. The culture is very negative towards working moms and the general perception is that if they are not in the office they are not working as much or as hard.
Great place to work!
