I don't think I can do this..

I got a seasonal job at fedex, I thought I could do it but I cant...the thought of breaking something someone paid for is eating at me...and they expect us to throw things around or drop them to the floor....I got sent home 2 hours early last night because I was moving too slow and being to gentle with the packages even though my door wasn't backed up......my trainer broke someone's fan because he just didn't care and tosses stuff around to move fast...I don't think I can do this if I'm expected to move fast and break people's things......

That's my confession

So quit.  And then call corporate and report the mishandling of packages.

And? Would you want something you ordered to show up broken? Doubt it.

If there was wide spread destruction of packages something would be done. I think you need to relax and realize they know what they're doing.

Do accidents happen? Yes, but that's what insurance is for.

These aren't accidents..they are expected to treat packages this way in order to not get backed up.

Your choice is pretty simple actually.  Quit or follow the job rules.

I'm pretty sure the percentage of packages that have damaged merchandise in then from actual mishandling is extremely minimal and very rare, considering the enormous amount of packages that are handled each and every day.

It's not the job rules. It's the managers and trainers rules. In the orientation they specifically tell us to treat things the way we would want our own packages treated.

And you'd be wrong. They have millions of dollars in claims every year because of broken stuff.

Insurance or not they shouldn't be just tossing stuff around.
