CYPRESS, Texas — Inside this FedEx facility in Cypress, everything is in transition.
Packages are coming and going all day long. Just like the packages they handle, there are some employees here in transition, too.
“My favorite thing is I greet the people,” said Andrew Hebert, an employee.
“I started out as a package handler,” said Cody Gillette, another employee.
Hebert and Gillette are more than thankful for the chance to clock in.
“I’d been bouncing from job to job to job and it just hasn’t been working out for me,” said Gillette.
They’re both adults with autism, transitioning into the workforce.
“The reason why I like FedEx is because they are actually very nice and understanding,” said Hebert.
