Package Handler Interview

Package Handler
Phoenix, AZ

I applied in-person and the process took 3 months - interviewed at FedEx in November 2009.

Interview Details – It took nearly three months to be contacted after initiating application. A mandatory dock tour was needed. This means you show up about five AM and see what the job is really like. It was odd that no work was in progress during the walk-through. Only after the dock tour were applicants eligible for an official application. The application process could only be done at the work site and times were shortened twice. Eventually, a small time slot of two hours was specified for application. There is not much room to put much experience. Interview with HR Representative was informal. Representative brought up work history and noted two positions at once in the past. Job requirements for lifting and timeliness touched upon. Intent of promotion mentioned with no real response. Education and experience do not matter.

Interview Question – There are no difficult questions for the entry-level Package Handler positions. Questions for any promotional position are also not difficult and found the Senior Terminal Managers do not have needed background that is commensurate in other transportation companies.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is nothing to negotiate for entry-level positions. It was, and probably is, about 10.50 per hour with stepped increments.

Package Handler Interview

Package Handler
Kennesaw, GA

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at FedEx in November 2013.

Interview Details – Kennesaw location has board with telephone number to call when positions are available in front of distribution building on old 41. I called the number and they had a facility operation a week later that anyone interested in the job could attend. If interested you come back next Tuesday to fill out an application and interview. Once that is done it takes about a 3 to 4 days for the background check to clear and for you to be hired.

Interview Question – Basically if you were willing to work there, they are going to hire you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, negotiation process. You either take the hourly wage or you find another job.
