    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at FedEx in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    The phone screening seeks basic business knowledge and some applied questions specific to the job title. Do your homework, because these are not always easy. The next step is usually a half to full-day onsite interviewing with management, meeting future peers, and an informal lunch, and probably a skills test to evaluate communication abilities and professional skills. My day felt very laid back, but I felt exhausted at the end of it.

    Anonymous Employee  in  Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at FedEx in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    This position was in the Customer Insights Group. Applied online. Cleared an initial phone interview containing some quant questions, case questions and behavioral questions. The interview went for an hour. Got a call for the on-site interview in 2 days. The on-site interview had 6 one-on-one discussions (each 30 min.) with senior members of different teams within the CI group. And, a panel interview (1 hr) with the director and 6 managers of these different teams. This panel interview was very similar to the phone interview except the questions were a little bit tougher than the phone interview.

    The process took a day - interviewed at FedEx in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone screening interview first. Then I got invited to an on-site interview. The on-site interview was a panel interview. It lasted roughly 45 minutes to an hour. It was a standard behavior interview. There were some questions related to my technical skills and customer service experience. The last question is “why should we hire you?”. They said they would let me know the interview result within a couple of two weeks. Sent a follow-up email and didn’t get a response. Three month passed by, the job posting was still on FedEx’s website.

    Senior Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Memphis, TN

    Application Details

    The process took 4 months - interviewed at FedEx in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    This is specific to Pricing and Revenue Management group

    First round = Phone interview (behavioral + quantitative + business case)
    Second round = Panel Interview (Most important one for decision making) and then one on one discussions with different members (same as phone interview)

    Very laid back attitude. Require regular follows. Results of the first round might take over a month. Another 20 - 30 days for setting second round. Results of second round take around 60 days.

    Only 2 kinds of people can follow through such a long process - one who have a lot of interest for the firm or people who are desperate for a job and do not have any other option in the world. Given the current job market, I am sure they will surely find some people like that.

    First round
    1. Around 9 questions -
        1.1 3 analytical/business case -> size of total number of domestic passengers, a basic ratio math and business case on we want to launch Fedex Express in Mexico, should we or should we not . How do we evaluate
        1.2 Behavioral questions - > strategic goals for professional and personal life and what have you done to achieve them, leadership, data driven analysis, innovation etc

    2. Second round - Panel Interview - follows pretty much the same as first round interview format
        Behavioral questions - If a member not performing, how did you handle; managed a project -> how did you handle, etc
        Analytical/business case - again ratio based and one business case - Good to understand drivers of Fedex business and pricing process

    Overall cultural experience -> laid back, which is referred to has having strong work life balance, people turn to office late and are free to leave early.

    Interview experience - Good - One person picks you up from hotel, takes you to dinner etc etc. well managed interview process

    Got the interview through school application process. Took a month to get an interview after application
