    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at FedEx in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship at FedEx Services. I was contacted within a few weeks to conduct a phone interview with a marketing manager. She asked some background and behavioral questions -- nothing out of the ordinary. Then I was invited the final round interview. It was a panel interview (2:1) via Skype with two different marketing managers. One asked the questions while the other listened and drilled you with follow up questions. That was a bit unexpected. Received an offer, they pay VERY well, but ultimately accepted an offer with another company that better suits my professional interests.

    Global Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FedEx (Chapel Hill, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through career services at my university. There was a prompt response from someone in HR who asked to set up a phone interview. The interview went smoothly and a lot of the questions were behavioral with some questions regarding what I knew about their current operations.

    About two weeks afterwards I was sent an e-mail asking to schedule a group interview with 2 managers over skype. This interview was again more behavioral however had some questions regarding how to most effectively target clients and how I would improve FedEx's marketing strategy. The interview lasted about an hour and seemed to go fine.

    Afterwards I heard nothing for about a month. I was a little surprised because everything had gone well and had to send multiple emails throughout the entire process constantly inquiring for information regarding whether I was still in consideration.

    I finally received notice that I had received an offer, however by that time I was so frustrated with their lack of organization that I ended up turning it down. FedEx overall has a great company but they need to really fix their currently weak HR system. This could have gone better.
