Senior Programmer Analyst Interview

Senior Programmer Analyst
Memphis, TN

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at FedEx in September 2012.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 2 managers with a standard Q&A format provided by the HR department. In my interview, it surprising wasn't very technical. They asked some basic questions about programming, but nothing real deep. It was more focused on my analyst skills, willingness to learn, and teamwork.

Interview Question – Giving examples of successful and failed attempts throughout my career   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating. The offer was as-is which was fine since the offer was good.

Very Difficult Interview

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at FedEx.

Interview Details – Initial screen over the phone with a manager from Finance department - standard questions about experience, personality and why I want to work for FedEx. Lasted one hour. Very shortly afterwards, I was contacted by an admin assistant and given two exercises in Excel to test my Excel skills, as well as my analytical and presentation skills. Exercises were very thorough and required some time to complete. Within one week after submission, I was contacted by the admin assistant to schedule a panel interview for three weeks ahead. On the day of the panel interview, I spent 5 hours there. The first two hours were with the panel. They came in with a package of 11 questions - mostly problem solving and critical thinking, some examples of situations. Very rigorous process.

It is now one month, two follow-up emails, and still no feedback from them.

Interview Question – Timed for 60 seconds : Why do I want to work for FedEx?
What factors would you consider in an analysis whether to take on a customer or not?

Senior Operations Research Analyst Interview

Senior Operations Research Analyst
Memphis, TN

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FedEx in March 2012.

Interview Details – The typical job interview of qualified candidates will be before a panel of interviewers that include the hiring manager and 1-2 additional peers. Each panel member will alternately ask job relevant and work ethic questions and may require the candidate to provide a presentation. The presentation topic will have been previously provided.

Interview Question – Each person has a different opinion or perception of what is difficult. Performing a comprehensive study on the open position and departmental roles and responsibilities in advance of the big day will minimize the unexpected questions and provide you with the confidence needed for a successful interview.   Answer Question
