    Part Time Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Evansville, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Evansville, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at FedEx Ground in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. First you have to sign up online to go in for an "observation" which was basically 10 minutes of looking around and a brief overall explanation of what we would be doing. Then a few days later I got a call to go in for an interview. The interview was basically 3 questions....can you lift 50 pounds, how soon can you start and what shift can you work. Told me they would do a background check and then call me. About 5 days later they called and asked me to come in for an orientation. Started working right away.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FedEx Ground in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was my second interview in my Job hunt.
    I was interviewed by two managers and an HR rep. It seemed very mechanical and scripted. It was a phone interview and that took some of the humanity out of it also. There were common interview questions. Example...."Explain how your prior boss supported you decisions." There were definitely a set of questions that they read from a list.
    There was absolutely no indication that I would be considered or called for a second interview. They either have a of of applicants or they knew who was getting the job and my interview was just a legal formality.

    there is a very limited interviewing process. Most of the contractors hire from people they know. That's how I got the job. Its a very hands on approach to the job. Either you can do the job or you can't.

    Fedex Ground Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FedEx Ground.

    Interview Details

    Most FedEx ground drivers get hired through a friend or family member. Because you're working for contractors and not the company they tend to hire from referrals. There usually is no official interview or process. I just talked to the contractor, he asked me if I had driving experience with big box trucks 20 feet or longer, and asked how long have I been a driver before. They require a minimum of 1 year I think. And then talked a little about the person who referred me. After a few min of conversation he saw what type of personality I have and made a decision to hire me or not. Then I went to see a guy at the terminal so I can fill out the application and get a drug test. Then I waiting about a week to get approved by FedEx the company and for my background and drug test results to come in. Once the results came in I was able to actually start training to be a driver by shadowing another driver to learn the scanner and how to actually do the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Can you prove or verify your driving experience history.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, you just accept what the contractor's going to pay you. Unless you have experience or years in the business then maybe you can negotiate, but highly unlikely.
