Those who want to be hired should hurry
FedEx Supply Chain is hiring again in June 2021. The Memphis-based logistics company is looking to hire up to 115 people for its warehouse at 4155 Quest Way in Memphis.
On Monday, June 7 and Tuesday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., a job fair will be held at the Hickory Ridge Mall Towne Center, 6075 Winchester Road. Although additional positions are available, FedEx is primarily seeking forklift operators. Applicants must pass a criminal background check and a drug test, as well as provide two kinds of identification. Forklift operator positions necessitate prior experience. Job offers will be issued on the spot, and the selected individuals will be hired right away.
Although applications will be accepted at the job fair, FedEx recommends that applicants apply online ahead of time on the company’s website.
At the employment fair, face coverings are required. This Supply Chain is holding a job fair for the second time this month. It sponsored a hiring event on June 2 and 3 to fill 115 full-time positions in a warehouse at 6750 Legacy Blvd. in Olive Branch. That event was regarded as “successful” by a company spokeswoman, although he did not say how many positions were filled at the time. Two weeks earlier, a similar job fair for the Quest Way location was held.
Establishment of the company and its activities
FedEx Corporation, previously Federal Express Corporation and then FDX Corporation, is an international delivery services firm based in Memphis, Tennessee. The name “FedEx” is a syllabic abbreviation of Federal Express, the company’s first air division, which was utilized from 1973 until 2000.
FedEx Express, one of the first major shipping firms to provide overnight delivery as a trademark service, is the company’s most well-known service today.
Since then, FedEx has launched FedEx Ground, FedEx Office (formerly known as Kinko’s), FedEx Supply Chain, FedEx Freight, and a variety of additional services through its different companies, all of which are intended to compete with UPS. FedEx is also one of the government’s biggest contractors, and its FedEx SmartPost service helps the USPS move some items.
Frederick W. Smith, a Yale University graduate, launched the corporation as Federal Express Corporation in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1971. In a term paper at Yale, he proposed the company’s concept, calling for a system specially intended for urgent deliveries. Despite the fact that his lecturer was not enthusiastic about the notion, Smith persisted. When he shifted his business to Memphis in 1973, he established formal operations.
Smith mentioned the proximity of Memphis International Airport to the country’s mean population center and the absence of frequent severe weather as grounds for choosing the airport.
