Associate Technical Analyst Interview

Associate Technical Analyst
Collierville, TN

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at FedEx in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied to FedEx from their website. They emailed me about three weeks later to scheduled a phone interview. The interview lasted about an hour with three different sections: Behavior, Technical, and Miscellaneous.

The Behavior interview questions were the typical S.T.A.R style questions: "Tell me a time when...." and so on.

The Technical interview questions were broad consisting of questions from Linux, Software Testing, Relational Database, and Java.

The miscellaneous was the funnest with a lot of random and weird questions you wouldn't expect.

This was the only interview I had, and they extended me an offer the next day. Which came to a surprise considering they never seen my face.

Interview Question – What is your favorite flavor of kool-aid?   Answer Question

Operations Supervisor Interview

Operations Supervisor
Chester, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at FedEx in June 2014.

Interview Details – I received a call from the Center Manager about my resume that I left back in December, and he informed me that the position is open again. He said that he wanted me to go in a fill out the application that night. I did and he called me the next day to set up an interview. The interview is a panel interview with three people. They asked me standard questions i.e. how familiar are you with the traffic laws, and name a time where you've had to communicate with others type questions. These questions were behavioral based, and pretty standard a cross the board. I was asked 14 of those questions and did really good.

Interview Question – "Name a time where you've had to communicate and work with others to accomplish a task that you weren't originally assigned. What was the assignment and how did you accomplish this task?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation!!! They already decide what they want to pay you based on your experience.

Administrative Interview

Administrative
Irving, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FedEx in March 2014.

Interview Details – The process took over 2 months because the department in which I was applying delayed the interview process. So, initially I received a call from a recruiter asking if I was interested and then the hiring manager scheduled a phone interview. The interview was with 2 managers and consisted of general questions as well as a set of behavioral/situational questions. Be prepared to discuss occasions where you stood out from the rest. After the phone interview, I was scheduled for an in person interview a week later. The interview again consisted of the 2 managers, and a new set of behavioral questions. I was confident and comfortable, so the interview was somewhat easy for me.

Interview Question – Naming a time when you dropped the ball and how you fixed it.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I was asked for my salary requirements prior to the in person interview. The offer was great and more than what I asked for.

Fed Ex Courier Interview

Fed Ex Courier

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at FedEx in June 2014.

Interview Details – Was contacted by phone two days after submitting my application online. Scheduled an interview for the next week. Was interviewed by two people, which was a first for me, but not awkward as they both had clearly practiced this routine and had become comfortable in how they wanted to conduct the interview and their individual responsibilities.

Interview Question – None of the questions are difficult. But you should be prepared to answer questions regarding your abilities to deal with deadlines, stress, co-workers and any difficult situations that you've been presented with and your solutions to dealing with the problems.   Answer Question

Operation Manager Interview

Operation Manager
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at FedEx in January 2014.

Interview Details – Very formal. Not my expectations of the role of an Operations Manager. I accepted the position and was blind sided by the physical work you have to put in, not to mention the paper work that has to be done. There is no time for office time and or training on new and or current events.
