Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at FedEx.

Interview Details – The interview last about one hour. And there are several behavioral interview questions first and feel free to answer these question according to your own experience. Then, several real world questions were asked and they were not that difficult but you do need some time and do some calculation to get the answer. Finally, some questions about your background and experiences were also asked as well as the salary expectation.

Interview Question – The behavioral interview questions seem a little bit challenging to me. After all, this is my first phone interview and honestly I am not that well prepared.   Answer Question

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FedEx.

Interview Details – 3 divisions - FedEx Corp, FedEx Services, FedEx Supply Chain Services. Sales coverage is divided into 3 areas - FedEx express (domestic & intl air), FedEx Ground(parcel & home delivery), FedEx freight (LTL,TL). 3 types of sales roles in FedEx - inside sales(up to $50K trans spend all modes), field sales(based on # of facilities and multi-million $$ trans spend, Enterprise Sales (no cap and about 7-9 people doing this now at FedEx). First contact can be either an external recruiter or internal recruiter, but both are pre-steps before actual interview. Interview and Hiring process is 3 steps - 1st meeting is with an actual line manager (these people normally have 5-8 people under them) and they take turns in the managerial pool interviewing new outside applicants. This means the person who interviews you will most likely NOT be your actual manager if you are hired. Apparently, interviewing is expected of the line managers to be 10-15% of their time and they grudgingly perform these duties. 2nd step is with a panel interview of 3 managers, 3rd step is with the Managing Director of the branch location to personally vet and bless the candidate. Comp plan is weak - base was $60-65K and OTE was appx $16K per quarter even at 175% of quota. Basic sales metrics are - maintain current install base, and grow marginally by taking profitable accounts from UPS.

Interview Question – Arrogant 30 yr old line manager interviewing experienced Salespeople is a total mismatch of skillsets and knowledge of the Logistics markets. Apparently, when it's either FedEx or UPS in the market for consumer choice, it's an extremely difficult selling environment. (cue sarcasm please). Suggestion to FedEx mgmt. - Hire more experienced Salespeople and have more experienced SALES management. Looks like just 20-something kids in the field.   Answer Question

Package Handler Interview

Package Handler
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at FedEx in January 2012.

Interview Details – Very fast, was interviewed over the phone first the day after I applied online, the in person interview was more of a tour of the operation. You will be asked taking everything into consideration, if working for Fedex would be a good fit for you. After you say yes, there are extensive steps before you begin training. You most get a drug test, criminal background check with fingerprints done, if working at an airport you must take an exam(easy) to recieve a badge and unfortunately everything is done off site but Fedex pays for everything.

Interview Question – No hard questions, everything is straightforward.   Answer Question
