    Part Time Courier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Grand Forks, ND
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Forks, ND
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Fedex Express in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruitment specialist about a month after submitting an online application. She went through about 5 minutes worth of easy screening questions (can you lift up to 75 pounds with little or no assistance, can you work the hours specified, etc.) She then said a local manager would contact me within a week to ten days. I was contacted by a local manager within 48 hours to set up an interview. We agreed on an interview the day he called, as I was off work from my then current job that day.

    I arrived at the interview about 10 minutes early. The interview was very standard with 10 easy questions, which the interviewer read off a packet of papers he had printed out. He wrote down responses and again asked if I could lift 75 pounds and outdoors in all conditions, etc. I asked a few questions about advancement, etc. and then he offered me a job.

    I took my drug test and physical two days later. My start date was set two weeks after the interview to give me time to put in my two weeks at the job I had at the time.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were very standard. For example, describe a time in which you had to work under pressure or in a stressful situation and how you handled it?   Answer Question

    FedEx Express does not hire externally for Operations Manager positions unless they have exhausted internal postings over a long period of time. However if you are an internal candidate you go through a management mentorship and then you can bid on Manager positions.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not think the questions were very difficult. Interviews are panel interviews with behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Swing Courier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fedex Express in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    A few days after applying on glass door a recruiter located in Atlanta, GA called me to discuss the position with me. She setup a secondary phone interview with an HR recruiter located in Memphis, TN who called me in the next couple of days. They then sent me to a local clinic to take a drug test and have a DOT health screening. And finally I had an in person interview with both the office and district managers who hired me right there. The following weekend I did a few simple multiple question tests on a computer and took a short safety driving course in one of the FedEx delivery trucks. I then started my first day of work on the following weekday.

    Non Dot Package Handler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Newark, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fedex Express.

    Interview Details

    Went online and filled out a basic questionnaire which led to an email telling you a timeframe when to call. Had to call over 50 times to get through to get a date to come in. Went in, filled out paperwork and performed drug test. Came in a week later for fingerprints and started a couple days later. If they answered the phone, you pretty much got the job pending drug test and fingerprints. Lots of paperwork due to being in the airport.

    Interview Questions
    • None, managers did not interview. Mass hire. Will take anyone with a pulse.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None, set price you must sign off on.
