NCCP Delivers Quality Intern To FedEx

Thursday, March 8, 2018

Nazareth College and Career Prep student Sean is exceeding expectations at FedEx headquarters in Moon, PA.

Sean is part of the Operations Technology Department at FedEx. He has been assisting with software and hardware testing of the Trailer Load Analytics (TLA) solution.  The solution combines images with trailer loading metrics and displays the information on a user dashboard.  Sean completed QA on software enhancements prior to release, looking for any bugs within the program.  Sean also looked through images to identify any that were blurry.  By identifying blurry images,  cameras with a defective lens were found. He has also worked closely with an analyst in the Operations Systems Support group that maintains the inventory and repairs of the scanning equipment used by the delivery drivers in the field.  Once the equipment is returned to the corporate office, it must be sorted, boxed and sent for repairs or returned to storage. 

"I have had the opportunity to work with Sean over the last several years" said Karen Hill, intern supervisor. "He is always pleasant and interacts well with his co-workers. Sean is very comfortable in our work environment, which is commendable in a place that could be very intimidating to a high school student."
