Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at FedEx Ground in November 2011.

Interview Details – Hiring manager and HR will always screen applications and interview first. Interviews are almost always done over the phone. Interview will last about 30 minutes and be about 10 questions long. Interviews are almost always with the hiring manager and a member of HR. Sometimes they will take turns asking questions, sometimes it will be all one person. Both will be taking notes.

Interview Question – First question is always and open-ended question about why FedEx will benefit with you in the position and what you bring to the table. The rest of the questions are specific situational questions and you'll be expected to tell the interviewer about a time when you dealt with the specific topic and how you did it. Expect a lot of leadership style and conflict resolution questions, and maybe something about business acumen and/or information processing.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They will make you an offer and detail exactly what the benefits are. The salary and benefits come from a salary review from the corporate office and the person making the offer can not offer you anything else - so there's no negotiating. If you decline, they move onto the next candidate. They will typically allow you to take a day or two to decide if you request it. They usually want you to start as soon as possible, but the start date is flexible and determined by the applicant and the hiring manager. The offer is contingent upon a drug screen and a background check.

Part Time Package Handler Interview

Part Time Package Handler
Wheeling, IL

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at FedEx Ground.

Interview Details – Walked in to personnel office and asked if they were hiring. Told them I was a dependable worker. Was asked to enter my personal data onto company computer and was told to come in for training 4:00 A.M. the following day. The training and hiring process was the easiest one that I have ever had. Any errors were quickly noted and I was told how to do my job in a safe manner.

Package Handler Interview

Package Handler
Saint Paul, MN

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at FedEx Ground in June 2014.

Interview Details – You start by registering for a short tour of the facility called a sort observation. Then you apply, within a day or two, you'll be called for an "interview". I put that in quotation marks because it's a joke and it's pointless. The only thing they do is tell you the pay and the physical demands of the job and ask if you're still interested. Mine lasted about three minutes. After that, they do your background check which should take no more than two days then you start. It is the quickest and easiest hiring process I have ever seen but they're not going to be very selective. They just need bodies. If you can walk and chew gum at the same time, the job is yours.

Part Time Package Handler

Interviewed at FedEx Ground

Interview Details – Interview process was very simple. When I was interviewed, the questions often entailed yes or no answers. And when I tried to explain further about my questions, it seem like management could care less. But overall they just ask you if you can pick up 50 lbs. Previous work history. Previous jobs/hobbies that will help you succeed in the package handler position. And lastly they ask you a time you had to multitask.

Interview Question – Explain a time when you had to multitask?   View Answer

Part Time Package Handler Interview

Part Time Package Handler
Eau Claire, WI

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

Interview Details – Hiring process begins with scheduling a sort observation over email. After completing the sort observation, I was asked to return the next morning to complete an application, and was called three days after the application for an interview. Interview was extremely short and simple, most questions simply evaluated work ethic. They completed a background check, and one week later they called and offered me a position which I accepted.

Interview Question – Are you able to lift 70+ pounds with no assistance?   Answer Question
