Another Fruitcake? Take a Break from Holiday Returns Stress

It has happened to all of us.  The gift you never saw coming and would never use.  Mine was a Thighmaster (Yes. THAT Thighmaster!)   A well intentioned aunt (to remain anonymous) wrapped and shipped what she thought was the perfect holiday gift for yours truly.  I unwrapped the paper, opened the box and wow, if that was what she thought was the right gift for me, perhaps I should lay off the Christmas cookies!

FedEx Supports Educators with Sponsorship of “Teachers Rock” on CBS Tonight

Every year, the Back to School season brings a flurry of activity for me both at work and at home. At our FedEx Office stores we see students, parents, and teachers buying school supplies, making "welcome back" posters and banners, printing classroom materials, and even packing and shipping all the essentials (like hot pots and Ramen noodles) to dorm rooms across the country.

How Many Prints Does it Take to Get to Disney World?

Like many great places to work, FedEx Office makes it a priority each year to recognize the hard work and success of our team members. The annual Team of the Year competition – in place since the 1980s, when the company was known as Kinko’s – is reserved to honor the best-of-the-best in our organization. One cluster, or group of stores, and one standalone center are selected based on their record of customer service, team member retention and financial performance. We also honor the top sales team in the nation for their hard work, sales performance and commitment to customers.
