Even though I've been doing the job for the past year, I just recently was given the title Package Handler Trainer at my job at FedEx Ground. This summer I've been working 60 hour weeks between there and UCit. My weekends are mine, and that gives me enough time off. Of the many trainees I've had at FedEx, One I just had to let go blew my mind. At 45 years old he worked three jobs. He'd work third shift for Kroegers, then go to IHOP for 4-5 hours, then work at FedEx for 4-5 hours, leaving himself only about 4 hours to sleep at night. He says he didn't need the money, he choose to work that much. That is insane. he was there for only 2 weeks, and late 8 of 10 days he worked, which is why he was let go.
Don't be like my former trainee, take time off, enjoy life, and sleep if you get the chance.
