    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fedex Express.

    Interview

    The interview that I had was a two part interview. The first interview was a standard type of interview, while the 2nd, a month or so later was with three managers from the station at which I would be working. At the second interview I was asked 10 scenario questions regarding working for FedEx. Ie: "Working for FedEx means working outside. Do you have any problem with working in the heat, cold, snow, rain etc?"

    Interview

    Long wait time between initial application and first "group" interview, which was full of lies. Jump seating was discontinued after 9/11 but they still told us we could do that (2010). Second interview wasn't too bad. Had two managers interviewing.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fedex Express (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Getting hired on with FedEx Express is very simple. As long as you have a clean criminal record and MVR you are OK. Once on board you have to wait at least 90 days before you can move into the Ramp Agent or Team Leader position. Interview questions are behavior based, (i.e. Tell me about a time when you were faced with a difficult decision, and what you did to deal with that?) Process is very quick, usually within a couple of weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult aspect to behavior based questions, is that many of them seem to sound the same and it can be difficult to think of different situations in which to answer the questions.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I posted internally for the highly competitive Ramp Agent vacancy. Applicants were given a supplemental packet to complete, asking questions about personal experience in leadership roles. Based on the results, interviews were given in front of 3 managers. Most of the questions were situational with a few company specific questions. The panel wanted to know about leadership skills, how you deal with people and stressors as well as your potential for management and longevity.
