    On a personal note I had 2 bad delivery attempts by FedEx Ground this week. One was two blocks away, the driver came to my door and I turned him away. Second one was dropped at my doorstep, it was for my neighbor across the street. Must be seasonal employees that they just hired.

    In my experience, Fedex Ground has always been the worst of the major delivery services.

    Christmas seasonal employees are a problem with every delivery service.

    In my opinion, FedEx Ground is the best of the basic delivery services.

    Yesterday I ordered from Walmart some COVID antigen home test kits. They were scheduled to arrive via FedEx next Tuesday. Instead, an hour ago they were left by FedEx on my front stoop. I'm glad they emailed me that they had been delivered. I certainly wasn't looking for them and would not have seen them until later.

    I don't know who to thank for this rapid delivery, Walmart or FedEx. Certainly, both were on the ball.

    FedEx Home Delivery, which is the low-cost FedEx service, is the sketchy one, sometimes let down by the last mile freelancers who do the deliveries.

    FedEx Ground is fine.

    as a former fedex employee i used to feel their strong security measures & strict internal guidelines made them the best across express, ground, home delivery, etc. but lately i think they have been hit with the same labor shortage that almost every company has.

    for months, fedex ground had been leaving my deliveries in the middle of my somewhat longer-than-average driveway and applying a "left at gated driveway" scan on them. there is no gate. there are no obstructions. sometimes just sitting in the middle or sometimes leaning against my car.

    needless to say it was very upsetting to me given the various states of extreme weather we've had. i don't have a clear vantage point to catch the driver in the act and i didn't want to complain given how stressful their jobs are right now, so i left a polite note taped to the fence in the general area asking them to please leave deliveries on my front porch. so far, so good but having to ask for something that's common sense is a brand new one for me.
