FedEx hiring over 500 people in New Berlin for holiday season
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- FedEx expects to add more than 50,000 seasonal positions throughout its network to help the holidays arrive this year, and the company is hiring over 500 people in New Berlin. FedEx SmartPost, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FedEx Ground, is a residential shipping service designed for online and catalog retailers with last-mile delivery by the U.S. Postal Service. SmartPost has its national headquarters in Brookfield. These local openings include package handlers and other support positions.
FedEx is hiring for seasonal positions now and will continue to add more as needed to help the holidays arrive. The majority of these workers will be added as seasonal package handlers, 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 David Friesner, senior manager of the New Berlin SmartPost Hub. “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.”
Last year more than 1/3 of the package handlers hired at FedEx Ground facilities retained employment with the company at the conclusion of the holiday season.
