The process took a day - interviewed at Fedex Express in December 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted directly by the hiring manager. I was flown to Memphis and spent the night at a nearby hotel at their expense. A panel interview was conducted the next day which consisted of questions focused on my past and current skills as they related to the position. The interview was then followed by a skills test administered by lead-level employees to whom I would be assigned. I was offered the job via telephone two days after the interview. Time from initial contact to provisional job offer: 10 calendar days. Overall perception: clean and well-maintained office, the people were friendly, professional but stuffy work environment.
Reason for Declining – Overall, the initial offer only slightly exceeded my current base salary, but did not pay for overtime as my current employer does. The health benefits were the same, but slightly more expensive than those of my current employer. They also offered to pay for the relocation expenses. Despite the lower overall compensation, I was willing to relocate to be closer to family. They told me they were "in a hurry" to fill the position, but when what they thought was a generous offer turned out to be less than my current compensation, salary negotiations slowed to a crawl. I provided responses within 24 to 48 hours because they were "in a hurry", but had to wait weeks for their responses so they could "get approval from higher up" to negotiate a higher salary. In the end, it seemed like a lot of work to uproot my family to get less than what I already have just to be closer to home, so I broke off negotiations and declined the offer. I was also disappointed with how I was being treated.

Interview Details – I was already working for this company and applied on an internal posting. The pay for managers isn't very good unless you are hired off the street because they will start you out at 50% of range instead of 0% as they do with internal candidates. The size and hours of operation of the location can have a big influence on the amount of hours you have to work.

Interview Question – NA Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Fedex Express in March 2010.
Interview Details – Applied online, didn't hear from anyone right away, then received email saying there was an application session being conducted. Went into the application session with about 60 people, treated like cattle, completed a personality profile. I received a call back a couple of weeks later by a very unprofessional sounding employee who I later learned was 20+ year ee just tired of her job, interviewed and asked some questions regarding how I am with time management, working under stress, what I didn't like about former management, what things I didn't like about my previous job. Was very impressed with the station management honestly. My perception was just if you do your job and what was expected of you, then your job is secure. Office staff a little unprofessional looking and acting, surprised FedEx makes them first point of contact for customers. My advice if you really want to work for the company is conduct yourself professionally, don't act like it's just a driving job, it isn't, take the training seriously. Negative attitude by employees because they feel they've gotten the shaft, and they have, because time off and vacation rules and other lazy employees who know how to work the system make it difficult to be happy in the job.
