FedEx representatives said they are hiring for seasonal positions now and will continue to add more as needed for the holidays. The majority of the workers will be added as seasonal package handlers at FedEx Ground facilities, but there will be other opportunities during the holiday season and throughout the year.

FedEx offers its team members the chance to grow and reach their full potential thanks to excellent training, affordable medical benefits and a strong ‘promote from within’ culture,” said Galen Steele, Greensboro Hub Senior Manager. “It’s a great place to grow and advance your career, and these factors make FedEx one of the best and most admired companies to work for around the world.

According to FedEx, last year more than a third of the package handlers hired at FedEx Ground facilities retained employment with the company at the conclusion of the holiday season.
