Package Handler

May 2020 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I like the working community and how everyone gets along well within the building

What I wish was different

I wish that the hours were a set schedule rather than a floating start and end time, it makes it hard to plan my day, especially with college classes and other plans

Advice

I think this is a great company for those who are looking to work somewhere for an extended period of time and be able to advance further in higher positions within the corporation itself. Since FedEx only hires from within, it is important to do your best at lower level positions in order to be offered or considered for promotions.

Sales Intern

August - November 2020 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

My boss and his team made the transition from an in-person internship to an online one so gracefully. They planned different web events beyond my normal work to teach me more about the company and get to know me better. The experience was beyond what I was expecting for an internship during Covid-19.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to do the internship in person, but that being said it was still a wonderful experience.

Advice

Reach out, ask questions, and get to know people!

Material Handler

June - August 2019 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

It was hard work and a very secure environment. It wasn't hard to abide by the rules they had, and as long as you stuck to them, everything was fine. As someone who loves sorting, this job was like a heavy-duty sorting job. Expect to carry a lot of heavy freight. Environment is very friendly, and there were very few people I interacted with that I didn't like.

What I wish was different

I blame this on how few people we had on our lines at times, but it can be hard to get help on the really heavy boxes sometimes. I found ways to put them in carts by myself, but it's much easier when you have help.

Advice

I served as a STEP employee during this time. As such, I was moved around the line a lot. Don't expect to be in the same position of a line the entire time you work. Oh, and if you work in the summer, STAY HYDRATED. There's no air conditioning, so it gets very hot on-line.

Material Handler

June - September 2019 • Memphis, TN

What I liked

The hours were pretty manageable. The work was physical but you had access to plenty of water and rest.

What I wish was different

I wish shifts were more like 5pm- 10pm rather than 11pm-4 am. Getting off that late really affected my sleep

Advice

Ask your manager about opportunities they offer. Nobody will look for you, you have to take the initiative.
