-Education benefits for employee & family
-Travel benefits IE: Passes on commercial flts for employee & family or possible "Space A" seats on company acft
-Upgrade to CAPT timeline
At FDX you can count on about 1 month of sick leave and a little less than 1 month to start of paid vacation. It grows to a little less than 1.5 months at 5 years and a little less than 2 months at 10 years (sort of). Those numbers assume you max your vacation out and bid appropriately.
401K is minimal company match but we do get a 6% B fund to go with our 2% per year pension growth up to 50% of your high 5 at 25 years.
Stock option none worth mentioning.
Relocation allowance, none to start unless you plan on moving to HKG. Later in your career there are some benies to moving to another base, but nothing to write home about.
Ed benies pretty good for employee I dont think any for family.
Travel benies, yes if you dont mind traveling STBY you can get passes with other airlines. No Family on FDX jets.
Upgrade to Capt at least 10 years. If the age changes to 70 15 years.
I suspect you are not a pilot or you would have asked about Pay. UPS has us beat by a mile especially if you figure you will spend 30% of your time narrow body. But we have lots of hidden money we just havent found it yet.
