Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FedEx.

Interview Details – 3 divisions - FedEx Corp, FedEx Services, FedEx Supply Chain Services. Sales coverage is divided into 3 areas - FedEx express (domestic & intl air), FedEx Ground(parcel & home delivery), FedEx freight (LTL,TL). 3 types of sales roles in FedEx - inside sales(up to $50K trans spend all modes), field sales(based on # of facilities and multi-million $$ trans spend, Enterprise Sales (no cap and about 7-9 people doing this now at FedEx). First contact can be either an external recruiter or internal recruiter, but both are pre-steps before actual interview. Interview and Hiring process is 3 steps - 1st meeting is with an actual line manager (these people normally have 5-8 people under them) and they take turns in the managerial pool interviewing new outside applicants. This means the person who interviews you will most likely NOT be your actual manager if you are hired. Apparently, interviewing is expected of the line managers to be 10-15% of their time and they grudgingly perform these duties. 2nd step is with a panel interview of 3 managers, 3rd step is with the Managing Director of the branch location to personally vet and bless the candidate. Comp plan is weak - base was $60-65K and OTE was appx $16K per quarter even at 175% of quota. Basic sales metrics are - maintain current install base, and grow marginally by taking profitable accounts from UPS.

Interview Question – Arrogant 30 yr old line manager interviewing experienced Salespeople is a total mismatch of skillsets and knowledge of the Logistics markets. Apparently, when it's either FedEx or UPS in the market for consumer choice, it's an extremely difficult selling environment. (cue sarcasm please). Suggestion to FedEx mgmt. - Hire more experienced Salespeople and have more experienced SALES management. Looks like just 20-something kids in the field.   Answer Question

Engineer Interview

Engineer

Interviewed at FedEx

Interview Details – 2 hours interview for region engineering position. Interview consisted of an adhoc presentation, followed by a series of 9 behavioral interview questions. The interview was very structured, so you have to choose your examples carefully. I felt like I wasn't able to offer up all of my experiences if they didn't fit into one of the 9 questions. I followed up with some additional examples of my work.

Interview Question – Tell me a time you had to apply creative problem solving skills, what action did you take, what were the results?   Answer Question

Global Account Manager Interview

Global Account Manager
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at FedEx in October 2009.

Interview Details – very detailed approach in the hiring process. They will look for college grads for inside sales and prefer to hire from within. They invest a lot into their employees and live by the PSP process. People Service profit.
The hiring process is a panel interview and might consist of pre work such as a presentation etc

Interview Question – Tell me about how you overcame an account loss and how you turned it around.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – very strait forward and open

Manager Interview

Manager

Interview Details – Mainly based interview questions. FedEx is looking for people with great character, skills can be learned, but you are who you are. Expect questions like "tell me time when you had to deal with a low performing employee." "How do you get work done?" "What are you most proud of?" "What was your biggest mistake?"

Interview Question – Could have a question to see how you think - "how many people travel daily from NYC to LA?"   Answer Question
