"The camaraderie is great. The friendships I have made will last a lifetime. I feel like I can talk to anyone about anything. But I feel like I've grown stagnant, and it's time to move on."

"Horrible treatment and pay."

What do you like about working at Lone Star Overnight?

"Customers and co-workers. Nothing else. nothing else. nothing. nothing. nothing"

"BEWARE! Try try and try again to go to work somehere else if at all possible."

What don't you like about working at Lone Star Overnight?

"Treated poorly by upper management. Horrible raises. Junk vehicles. Was a good company until they began hiring castoffs from UPS and Fedex for upper management positions. Last raise was taken away due to economy and said it would be restored. My recent raise was a slap in the face AND I did'nt get my raise from 6 yrs ago back."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Start treating employees with respect and revamp pay raise scale."

"taken advantage of--to put it mildly, you will feel scammed."

What do you like about working at Courier Express?

"offered opportunity to work as a courier/Independent Contractor. Unfortunately, it's just staying on call for long periods of time, loosing a lot of your time, paying fixed expenses out of a check (plus fuel) and there was nothing left. It costs the company nothing to overhire"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't worry about it. It costs them next to nothing to hire you. Unfortunately, you could end up owing them and not making a dime."

What don't you like about working at Courier Express?

"dispatchers hound you to show their importance..you're doing all the work and the pay is horrible."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"make sure the contractors get enough work to cover expenses and fuel. The door can only revolve so many times."

Courier at FedEx
in Traverse City, MI

"33 + years."

What do you like about working at FedEx?

"A paycheck and benefits, period. Courier equals bottom of the food chain @ FedEx, a complete turn around from days gone by."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Run, don't walk away. Ok, if you NEED a job, fine, but if you want a career, look elsewhere."

What don't you like about working at FedEx?

"What don't you like... I hate to say it, but I must wholeheartedly agree with this assessment. I have been a courier with FedEx Express for over 33 years, and it WAS a great job and place to work... not so much anymore. I use to be able to go above and beyond for my (our) customers and build important relationships with my (our) customers, but those days are over. Customer has a question. Sorry, I have numbers to make, if I take any time addressing the customer needs, even taking as little as perhaps three minutes, my numbers reflect that wasted time in my Gap Report. I then must explain to mgmt. what I was doing during that three minutes... and no, I'm not exaggerating, I have to now explain why I'm providing customer service. The new Motto at FedEx Customer Service will NOT be tolerated! I've spent decades being the Face of FedEx and being one who willingly sacrificed in many ways to proudly represent the FedEx brand. I earned the trust of my bosses, my peers and my customers, and it obviously all worked beautifully as FedEx went from (who) to becoming one of the most admired and respected companies on the planet. Myself and my long term peers, managers and executives accomplished amazing things... but all that is forgotten now. I now must be watched like a hawk and am no longer trusted. I feel like a known criminal who is bent on stealing from the corporation. My contributions mean nothing and have been forgotten. I'm no more respected or honored than someone who started at FedEx yesterday. In spite of the company belief, lowly couriers are NOT stupid, we understand the new global economy, we understand the need for belt tightening, we understand the need for change, we understand it's in our best interest that the company remain viable and strong, but I believe those goals can and should be accomplished with a sense of appreciation and gratitude for all the people who where there from the beginning and played an intricate part in growing FedEx into the great company it became... but we are not. We have been not only forgotten, but are now treated as untrustworthy liabilities. Don't like it, go work somewhere else... is the reply. I plan on doing that very thing as I watch FedEx become a mere shadow of the Great Company it once was. I hope the CEO reads this. I am grateful for what you provided us for many years, It was a great adventure,but now my blood is no longer purple, you have abandoned your long time employees, and it hurts. The transfusion to the New FedEx has replaced my blood with ordinary red blood, and for me, that is very sad indeed. The once proud FedEx Family no longer exists, today the term is merely a platitude. Disgruntled employee hardly. Impeccable employment record at FedEx, never a trouble maker, and grateful to a fault. Your loss."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Anymore, nothing, as required. We used to be a team. Input was welcomed and often asked for, but now no one wants to hear your voice, shut up and do as you're told."
