Does FedEx have any sort of mentoring programme?

Pros

Learning small time sales negotiations.

Cons

Depending on where you are; lack of proper training, no stable schedule, cheap company, expected to learn everything from the bottom to top(manager level knowledge) and lack of real opportunity to move up. Expected to move around constantly with no say beforehand.

Advice to Management

Give proper health and wellness benefits to associates for being essential workers. Warn them if they're going to be commuting and give them a say before shoving off 30 miles to other places for below $15.00 an hour and irregular schedules.

How are promotions handled at FedEx?

Pros

The job can be fun and allows you to be creative at times. Teaches you management skills. Decent benefits for insurance and PTO

Cons

Work Grueling hours for the Christmas Holiday and get hours cut the rest of the year. Opportunities for advancement are high but don't expect to get much of a raise for your promotion. Expect do the same work as your superiors without a promotion or increased pay. Hire in new employees at a higher starting salary than you are currently making, especially if you've been with the company for several years, but won't give you a raise to compensate. Basically on call at any time. It's very hard to get a decent shift, unless you like to work evenings. Shared as an employee with other FedEx Offices all over the district.

Advice to Management

Give your senior staff raises to compete with the rising market. If you keep bumping up the pay for new hires but leave your loyal, long-term, employees in the dust, you're going to lose a lot of talent that you could have kept if you'd just treated them better and made pay more fair.
