I decided to go work for FedEx again. I was there back in 2009 and a lot has changed, but I am happy to be back here. Just have to learn the ropes again and hoping I learn quick.
Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.
Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…
When I train employees I tell them,
I'm 47 years old, handicapped, and missing two muscles in my left leg. All you need to do is keep up with me. After a month of Nick being there, I went in his trailer to help him out and show him my technique. I was putting 12 packages on to his one when I gave him my speech. He responded,

Don't go to the Carol Stream, IL location until September or later. Hours have been cut severely. Expect day/midnight shifts to only have a hour/hour and a half of work per day Wed-Fri. A lot of work has been moved to Niles.

I would love to work for Fedex
