Interview Details – This interview process is BRUTAL! First of all this is an entry level position and FedEx acts like you are interviewing for NASA. The first step is a webinar that describes the position and everything that fedex expects from their employees. This process lasts about an hour. After that, they will email you a "Prove it " test- basically if you arent fresh out of College, get ready for 3 hours of critical thinking. Then "if" they call you, they will set you up with a one on one interview with a manager. If you get passed that they will invite you to the third interview where you will have to do a 10 minute power point presentation on a fictitious territory that you plan to grow. After that its a panel style interview process with 5 people throwing numerous questions at you. Very very hard. I have a Masters Degree and 5 years sales experience. I nailed the interview, but no offer was extended. Perplexed by this.

I would rate the interview as difficult due to the manor of the two who questioned me on the situation test
a five part question by the time they are done with the question (paragraph) your almost confused about your answer.
This all happened after i waited 1 hr 15 min in the waiting room for my interview.
their demeanor was cold as ice ,you leave having wondering how did i do?? absolutely no idea coming from the two robots who interviewed me. I felt as though i was taking them away from something they would rather be doing a smile is to much to ask, most questions are directed around someone with management experience Im applying for a driver position not management.

The written skills exam focused on understanding corporate finance at a high level and how this information impacts supply chain and transporatation strategy. The presention followed similar lines with the evaluation focused on your ability to communicate complex information. Finally, the behavioral interview is a series of scenarios base on your previous work history. Quality "x' is important in this job.

The interview consisted of a group information session of about 60 applicants then immediately followed by a one on one interview with a sales manager. The one on one was the basic behavior and STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Response) questions. The first step basically is just like any other place, the managers are just seeing how well you might fit or really (how much they like you). Sadly, it's not all about your past experiences or qualifications. The company will train you on the sale process so don't think you know everything. This would be a good time to show that you are willing to learn and how much you like on-going training. Also, stress that you are into team success, once again, I repeat, team, team, team. This is an individual sale position, but the team and your district success is just as important.
The second step in the process consists of a panel interview with two or three managers. Usually, one of the managers on the panel is the one with the opening. This is a repeat of the first one on one but with a twist since there are multiple minds at work trying to pull information from you.
Remember to show initiative, relax but don't slip because they are trying to set it up in a manner that you might say this is easy but remember there are more of them than you. Overall, control the interview, just as if you were in a sales meeting, they have you there because they want to know more about you.
