Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fedex Express (Memphis, TN) in July 2015.

Interview

First a phone interview and then if that goes well you will be called for a panel interview. You are asked to allocate half a day to the entire process. Consisted of lunch, 1 on 1s with other employees and other managers. This part was great because you get to learn about the company and the work environment from a different perspective.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fedex Express (Memphis, TN) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted on a couple one on ones and a group panel question and answering. The one on one with different team managers was in place to see if they wanted you on their team of analyst. The conversation in this process was nothing to be worried about, just make sure you know the basics about ground, freight, and express (air). Also try to say something that would set you apart and possibly diversify their analyst team. The panel interview is something you need to ace if you want a shot at the job. They don't really focus on basic interview questions, more situational questions that they deal with on a daily basis.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fedex Express (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got the call for the only round of the process. Was going to be an interview panel with an MD and one Manager, but the MD could not come. They told me it would have behavioral, situational and technical questions and last 40 minutes but it ended up lasting an hour and being made up of only 1 behavioral question. Perhaps the MD had the other questions ready. It was very casual in nature and we spent a lot of time talking about non-business topics.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fedex Express in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interviewer didn't ask any preliminary questions. He stuck to a predetermined set of questions. These questions ranged from situations where you acted as a leader & how you tell others what to do when you have no direct authority over them. Also asked questions such as "How would you compensate for a 5% increase in volume that was not originally budgeted for?" and "Once a report is submitted to the CFO and you find an error what do you do? Even if it is 'only $1 million' on a $7 billion project/budget" as well as some basic financial questions pertaining to NPV, IRR, and MIRR.

    Interview Questions
