Package Handler

May - August 2020 • Lock Haven, PA

What I liked

The hard working people that were there to do the job efficiently and correctly without cutting corners or putting anyone in harms way.

What I wish was different

Management was a bit disorganized and certain shifts were heavily understaffed which would cause severe back ups for other shifts to clean up.

Advice

Come into it with an open mind and be honest with yourself, do you want to do the job. It's A simple job but it is strenuous and doing it in the summer it was very hot and you left after a shift like you just went to the gym for 5 hours.

Package Handler

May 2020 • Sioux City, IA

What I liked

I enjoyed the people, and the hours were fairly manageable.

What I wish was different

We were underemployed, which meant that each person was doing a lot more work than they should have been at times. Also, I'm not much of an early morning person, so 3 am (and sometimes earlier) start times were not fun.

Advice

Make sure you bring water and the expectation that you will be working hard and fast for hours at a time.

Package Handler

May - August 2020 • Grove City, OH

What I liked

I really enjoyed the pay and the hours.

What I wish was different

I wish that some of the people working there would embrace an encouraging, positive atmosphere, instead of engaging in degrading someone. The job culture was something to be desired. It seemed to me that some of the managers at this location lacked in leadership skills, namely integrity, knowledge of their jobs, and working well with others. That didn't apply to just the managers, but some of my other coworkers as well.

Advice

My advice is to do your very best and work hard, even if someone attempts to tell you otherwise. Other people cannot judge you for who you are as a person, and never blame yourself because someone told you that your self-worth is low. Another piece of advice is to work well with others as best as you know how, even if you don't always see eye to eye. Remember, judge not, lest you be judged.

FedEx Package Handler

May - August 2020 • Syracuse, NY

What I liked

The pay was very competitive-especially for someone with only a high school diploma. Shifts are only 6 hours long but you are always allowed to pick up doubles and work 9-12 hour shifts. This is really nice if you're trying to save money because overtime pay is really great.

What I wish was different

I wish the hours were a bit better. I didn't like working nights and sleeping during the day.

Advice

You must be somewhat physically fit. This is a very physically demanding job where you work extremely hard sorting thousands of packages. I think I may have lost a few pounds working here though! haha! :)

Package Handler

June - July 2020 • Twinsburg, OH

What I liked

The camaraderie, the pay rate, and the friendly, helpful, and supportive managers.

What I wish was different

I wish i could have worked a shift during the day instead of the 3rd shift which started at 2am. I also became burned out after working 6-7 hours without an official break for 6 days per week.

Advice

If pursuing this position, sleep is not merely very important, but rather imperative. I have learned the importance of getting over 6 hours of sleep. I recommend buying blackout curtains and blindfolds to sleep well if working as a 3rd shift package handler. That being said, your body will certainly get used to the physical demand of the job.

June - August 2020 • Orion, MI

What I liked

The money. was making $30 an hour with overtime and had 60+ hours a week

What I wish was different

I was treated like crap the harder you worked the more they worked you. After the quarter was over everyone took a pay cut and was only making 14 an hour. Be lazy and they wont work you as hard. Also didn't like working 13/ 14 days.

Advice

Do not recommend working here. People quit faster then they get hired.
