    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call for a phone interview 3 days later. Then went to the corporate office in Pittsburgh for an interview with 2 people. First given 30 minutes to prepare a presentation explaining why they should choose you and how you plan to succeed in this role. Then they read a series of questions from a booklet, all of which seemed to have the same answer. A lot of "tell us about a time when..." and they always wanted more and more details even when there weren't any. I found the whole process tedious and annoying and was counting the seconds until the interview would come to an end. After the interview it took 3 weeks before I heard anything back about the position.

    Interview

    Phone interview with standard scripted questions. May have to go through a few of those before getting a face to face interview as people interviewing usually looking for an exact answer from the script.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I found FedEx through campus recruiting, and after hearing that they were hiring, I decided to apply.

    Interviewers were a bit rude and complained about their work during the interview. They seemed to be heavily disinterest in interviewing me, so they had probably already picked a candidate.

    I'm fairly sure that I missed a bullet.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    It was a "Webinar" group interview sort of thing. It was mostly informational. The next phase was to take an assessment to move on to a 1:1 interview. This was my biggest gripe about the whole process. The recruiters and sales people kept preaching that everyone has their own value and that everyone is equal in their eyes. But yet they use a ACT type questions and computer estimates to tell them who should get an interview. I thought it was a little bit hypocritical.

    Other than that, it was an interesting process and FedEx seems like an awesome place to work.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2008.

    Interview

    A group of interviewees are herded into an auditorium for an intro to FedEx then wrangled into a line to meet with a FedEx representative. The ones who are found eligible for an actual interview are sent to the second floor, the rejects are seen out the front door by an extremely chipper FedEx associate.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very straight forward. Started with a phone interview with the hiring manage. He asked questions specific to the requirements e.g on Java, J2EE, Spring and Hibernate.
    Followed by an HR interview. The people seemed really nice and simple, but a little inflexible.
