The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA).
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.

First is a phone interview and then you have a face to face interview. The face to face is a presentation by you and a panel of managers. All behavior questions. Be prepared to know how to use PowerPoint and excel.

Group presentation about FedEx and the position itself. This was followed by 2-3 face to face interviews. At this point you must take a personality exam and pass the drug/background checks.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in August 2011.
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.
Negotiation is a must as they will try to low ball you.

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

It took me 20 mins to answer a set of questions see if my capability matched their requirements. Questions are "Please describe a role you've played in a team", "Please tell me how much you know about those skills with a scale from 1 to 10"

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2009.
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 day – interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2008.
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.

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.
