DOT Courier Part Time Interview

DOT Courier Part Time
Garland, TX

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Fedex Express in August 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, 4 weeks later interview was scheduled for Tuesday 9am.

Received a call Monday afternoon stating I was given the wrong time and asked to reschedule for Wednesday 9am. Of course I agreed.

Arrived at Garland TX Station 15 minutes early. I was escorted to the break room to wait.

The interviewer showed up on time and takes me to a conference room where she was joined by another female interviewer. They explained the process and the series of situational questions began.

The ENTIRE time both of these girls were sending and receiving text messages on their personal cell phones. I found this very uncomfortable, unprofessional, distracting and completely unacceptable. How could they possible have been 100% focused on me and my answers while preoccupied with the text messages?

The younger of the 2 interviewers received a text and then left the room after shaking my hand and saying it was nice to meet me. Leaving the other lady there to finish.

The following Tuesday the recruiter called me to see if I was interested in an interview at another station to which I had applied. I told her yes I was interested, but I had just interviewed in Garland last week. She put me on hold and came back to tell me that I was passed over.

I asked her why and she said, "They will always go with the highest score."

Highest score for what?? I never took a test and if those gals scored my answers in between their text messaging then that's pretty rotten.

Overall the experience was disappointing considering I had previous package delivery experience with another company so training would have been minimal.

Their loss.

FT Courier Interview

FT Courier
Logan, UT

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fedex Express in April 2009.

Interview Details – Initial Interview was simple information gathering from the Manager of the Station. Also included were some standardized tests which from what I hear now, have been discontinued due to legal issues. Due to FedEx's Excessive amounts of internal redtape, it took over 1 month to hear back from the hiring manager. I had already begun to work elsewhere.

Interview Question – There was no Q/A session of the interview process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nothing is negotiable at FedEx, it is Take it or leave it.
