    Default Fedex hiring - part time !

    Yes, you read that right. Fedex wants to hire part time to help stay competitive against Amazon's delivery service.
    That's interesting, as Amazon is low pay, and Fedex is offering part time work. You know, all those great jobs being added in this wonderful economy, after those corporations received their massive tax break ...
    Part time also equals no benefits, no healthcare, no holiday pay !

    Exclusive: FedEx to hire 700 flexible rural and residential drivers
    FedEx Corp said it plans to hire about 700 flexible, part-time Express drivers in 160 U.S. residential and rural markets as customer-turned-competitor Amazon.com Inc puts pressure on established delivery firms.
    FedEx, like global rival United Parcel Service Inc, is investing billions of dollars to cope with the boom in low-margin residential deliveries, which account for just over half of total package volume versus 20 percent in 2000.
    Taking small numbers of packages the "last mile" to shoppers' doorsteps and far-flung homes is more costly than delivering scads of envelopes and packages to office buildings - the latter of which has been the Memphis-based company's bread and butter.
    The lower-cost, part-time drivers will use company vehicles, receive no benefits, work no more than four weekly shifts, and be paid $17.10 per hour in most markets - including Paducah, Kentucky; Roswell, New Mexico; and Jacksonville, Florida. Pay was highest, $19.66 per hour, in Kodiak, Alaska, according to a Reuters review of help wanted ads targeting 139 small to midsize cities in 31 states.
