    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FedEx.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional and asking me questions about everything that didnt pertain to the position, never felt like I was in a professional atmosphere. I recommend people to ask bold direct questions to anything you are concerned about or you could be walking into a bad situation.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at FedEx.

    Interview Details

    Interviews are always behavioral questions, so tell me about a time or how did you respond to... etc..Most of the time you will interview with your direct manager and they are open to telling you about the position and like questions. I would recommend having 5-10 stories lined up for difficult situations you have had to deal with, a time when you could not make a sale, or have gone through the sales process. They use a system called REDDDI to sell: Research, Engage, Discover, Develop, Demonstrate, and Implement. Always smile and have a positive attitude, they might ask how you deal with a "bad territory". You might have to do a presentation from a scenario that they give you, make sure to prioritize a strategy, it doesn't need to be the "right" one but stick by it and have reasons behind why you would go that way.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at FedEx.

    Interview Details

    Came in as a college hire.

    There was a quick phone screen and then an invitation for an on site interview. There was one interview with 2 hiring managers. Each asked several personality questions and experience related questions. Very few technical questions. Technical questions were dead simple. What is the purpose of a constructor and when does it run? Why would you use generics?

    I applied for the position in late December 2014 and participated in pre-screening interview on January 5, 2014. I took the pre-assessment and was called two hours later to schedule a phone interview.

    Global Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chapel Hill, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Chapel Hill, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FedEx in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through career services at my university. There was a prompt response from someone in HR who asked to set up a phone interview. The interview went smoothly and a lot of the questions were behavioral with some questions regarding what I knew about their current operations.

    About two weeks afterwards I was sent an e-mail asking to schedule a group interview with 2 managers over skype. This interview was again more behavioral however had some questions regarding how to most effectively target clients and how I would improve FedEx's marketing strategy. The interview lasted about an hour and seemed to go fine.

    Afterwards I heard nothing for about a month. I was a little surprised because everything had gone well and had to send multiple emails throughout the entire process constantly inquiring for information regarding whether I was still in consideration.

    I finally received notice that I had received an offer, however by that time I was so frustrated with their lack of organization that I ended up turning it down. FedEx overall has a great company but they need to really fix their currently weak HR system. This could have gone better.
