"FedEx was founded in 1971 in Little Rock, Arkansas by Frederick W. Smith. FedEx purchased the office supply store Kinkos in 2004 and has since changed the name to FedEx Office. The FedEx wordmark is notable for containing a hidden right-pointing arrow in the negative space between the “E” and the “X”, which was achieved by designing a proprietary font, based on Univers and Futura, to emphasize the arrow shape."
"I worked for Fedex ground for several years. I enjoyed the position, but often had to drive trucks that weren't the safest. If there are any problems Fedex goes with the guilty till proven innocent theory. And often was held back from leaving for delivery on time because of late trucks, and was still expected to complete everything on time with repercussions if you were unable to do this."
