FedEx Named Among FORTUNE Magazine’s “2013 Best Places to Work For”

fedex_ground_express.jpg

I am proud to congratulate our incredible FedEx team on once again making FORTUNE Magazine’s Great Places to Work list. FedEx is a special place, and we know it’s the dedication of our hard-working team members that account for this company’s continued success.

FedEx is known as an employer of choice around the world for many reasons – our long history of developing team members and promoting from within, our commitment to the communities in which we live and work, and our ongoing dedication to responsible environmental practices in our daily operations are just a few.

I could go on and on about my pride in this workforce and my own personal excitement about working for this company, but I feel the best stories come from you. Read below to hear some of our team members’ personal thoughts on what they like most about working at FedEx, and please share your own in the comments below.

Thank you for your continued service, and congratulations!

Judy Edge, CVP Human Resources

 

Brittney Christian, Customer Service Representative
FedEx Trade Networks

“FedEx is a great place to work because they invest in employees and support us with growth opportunities [like specialized training and tuition reimbursement programs.] By setting goals, utilizing the tools that FedEx has to offer, and putting in a little hard work, you really can drive your career where you want it to go. I feel working for FedEx has been a true asset to my career and personal growth. I take great pride in working for FedEx.”

 

Donald Olson, Sr. Center Manager
FedEx Office

“Just over 2 years ago my youngest son, Jeremiah, was in an ATV Accident and had a compound fracture of his right arm…that was the easy part. Due to the trauma to his body, the anesthesia from surgery, and pain medication, an illness that Jeremiah already had, but had been previously undiscovered, came to light.  Jeremiah was diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Myasthenia Gravis. Jeremiah’s nerves were not talking to his muscles, and Jeremiah could lie on the floor and have all the desire to stand but his body said, “No!”  Jeremiah’s disease has no cure, and is something he will live with forever.

So why does this make me love FedEx Office?

FedEx Office, led by Mike Naranjo, and the entire D-85 Team (Northern Colorado), were awesome!!!  My D85 family was there for my entire family, especially Jeremiah, though this entire journey, and even though I am part of a new district in order to be closer to Children’s Hospital, not a day goes by that I know they are not thinking about Jeremiah and The Olson Family!  The love from my FedEx Family is why I love FedEx Office.”

FedEx Ground

“I think the ‘people piece’ is the most important piece. If you take care of your people, they’re going to take care of everything else for you.”

 

Shawn Spaller, Sr. Lead Agent
FedEx Custom Critical

“We all hear repeatedly, ‘it’s the people that keep me coming back to work.’ It’s true! People are indeed special here, and I honestly feel it is our greatest asset. We truly ARE FedEx! ”

 

Lanny Badger, Part-time dockworker
FedEx Freight

“I have worked for FedEx [Freight] as a part-time employee for over two decades. I am a middle-school math teacher by day and a dockworker by night. FedEx has made my life easier by providing me with the extra income I desire and flexibility with my hectic schedule. My supervisors have always worked with me when I need to attend school functions, allowed me to increase my hours if needed, and treated me with respect. There are not many companies that are willing to be as flexible as FedEx has been with me. I appreciate all that FedEx has provided for me and my family.”

I am very happy with Fed-X. Your personal service means the world to me. LOve BF

I have been here in Kuwait for 22 yrs working for different companies but at last I finally found the one that I can trully can called HOME. I'm proud to be one of the FedEx family and will continue to give the very best that I can be. GOB BLESS US ALL...

I started my carrer with fedex early and i am still pretty new but i bleed purple already! I am truly honored and appreciate the opportunity to work for fedex and i feel that it is the best place to work!!:) FedEx is FANTASTIC we are helping people around the word get there Hopes and Dreams delivered to them and i love being apart of it!

My co-workers say I should be a recruiter for FedEx because I am a walking talking promoter of how great it is to be blessed to work for FedEx. I have honorably worn uniforms for both the Air Force and Army, that same pride and dedication shines when I wear FedEx.

I know for a fact that what is important for Fedex is the qualities and talents of people hired. I have witnessed many promotions amongst frontline employees, which is very rare in traditional French companies. Fedex places a great trust in its employees and management and provides real opportunities for personal development and career. Seing managers or senior managers coming from the ranks is a clear demonstration that Fedex puts in practice PSP principles. Having witnessed the growth of Fedex in EMEA,and after so many years with the company, I still find fascinating the continuous development of projects and the underlaying willpower to always " do best"

It may seem strange that one of the things I like about working at FedEx is that I see co-workers getting frustrated, just like I do sometimes. To me it is evidence of people caring about their jobs and wanting to do things better. I have worked places where many employees just didn't care, and I didn't like it. I enjoy working for FedEx and want to see this company and its employees continue to succeed, while doing what I can to be a part of it. Long live FedEx!

Having work for both UPS and Fed Ex Express, I truly have an understanding for what the Purple Promise means. Being a part of the Express team has been an great experience since day one. There is a difference when a company focuses on its employees before its service and thats why Fed Ex lands on Fortune's lists every year.

Feb.1/13 I celebrate 25 yrs. with FedEx Canada.A highlight of my career was the Nov./11 filming of Undercover Boss Canada, which as I found out later,was with Canadian President Lisa Lisson. In the U.S. our show was on OWN Network. Lisa is such a genuine kind person, and through Lisa's hard work and dedicaton to our employees, FedEx is ranked in the top 10 companies to work for in Canada. My son Hugh, who has worked for FedEx for 13 years went with me on the gift trip to New York City. What a great place to go explore, and enjoy live theatre.Hugh and I began our careers in Toronto and are now working at the Kelowna station in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Love working in this small station,expansion to a newer building is on the way this year, 2013.

I must say that I have been with Fedex for 15 and a half yrs. Started in the Memphis World Hub, and took advantage of going out into the field working at the GSO ramp in Greensboro. If I told you that you can be all you can be? I will tell you that Fedex can make that possible so long as you want that! This is a Company that always shocks me with the Creative way that they are able to stay visionaries during tough times. I wouldn't trade this job for anything at all! Call me a Company Man and Mr. Purple Promise!

Im am a vendor (welder fabricator)I've worked for Fed Ex off/on since 2007. I love to work here, the people are great, and I have a good relationship with the managers. I see a lot of improvements, training of employees, promotions, and it's an great place to work at MIA. I've always desired to work full time, but I understand the economy. However I enjoy coming to work. When you enjoy going to work it's not work. It's being part of the big picture. Helping, sharing, and getting the job done. I thank Fed Ex for the opportunity to work, in what ever capacity, God Bless
