    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at FedEx Ground in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was very easy. Pretty much, you have to sign up for a sort observation in order to even apply. It's a fifteen minute tour of the facility so you can see just how rough the actual job is. After that, they send you an email to apply online. I applied and got offered an interview the next day, for the day after that. I went in and answered six yes/no interview questions. It was very easy, so don't stress about it! If you're living and breathing, FedEx will hire you, no questions asked.

    Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FedEx Ground.

    Interview Details

    FedEx Grounds requires all applicants for package handling to go through a sort tour, where you come in and as a group tour the facility to show you what the job is like. You see the belts, the workers in their environment, and meet the managers. At my facility, the applicants would meet one of the senior package handlers and answer questions from both the applications manager and the applicants themselves. Being one of those senior pack handlers, I could tell almost immediately which ones were capable of the job and which weren't, and my perspective was confirmed by which ones actually had their first days.

    After the sort, applicants will fill out their name and application and be calling in for an interview at a later date. After that, they will be placed on a sort or put on a waiting list. From there, new employees are trained in the trucks as loaders and can progress to the slide, where they split packages to different doors, to the sort belt, where they sort packages to the appropriate dock door, or any of the other loading and unloading positions.

    Part-time Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at FedEx Ground in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    When I first applied for a job at FedEx Ground as a Part-time package handler I had to watch a sorting and then scheduled an interview. The sorting observation was informative and I learned that the warehouse is not temperature controlled so one needs to dress weather appropriately. After the interview I had to wait on a background check. The whole process did not take long.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked about work history. This is my first job so I has to treat the question as if I were being asked "what can you do for us?" I talked about classes I had taken at college and volunteer work that I had done.   View Answer
