Project Engineer Interview

Project Engineer
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Fedex Express in August 2009.

Interview Details – Applicants for FedEx professional positions typically go through a situational interview with several panelists, to include the hiring manager and Human Resources representative. Other members may include peers for the position which you are interviewing for or members of the management team for which you will be working with. The key to success is to research how FedEx works and correlate past work experience to their business model and job at hand.

Interview Question – I did not find anything unexpected or particularly difficult with the interview process. I remember explaining past working experiences and the excitement I saw in the hiring manager as I answered each question. I never fully understood his excitement until I starting working at FedEx and realized, concepts and practices are common industry wide, we should not be intimidated if we had not performed that exact position before. Draw upon you strengths. Remember your past experiences, both good and bad, prepare you for what challenges lie ahead.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had been laid off from my previous position for four months, so I did not want to risk loosing the offer. I was pleased when they offered me thousands more than I was making at my former position.

Part Time Courier Interview

Part Time Courier

Interviewed at Fedex Express

Interview Details – I applied for the position online, late on a Friday night 7/19/13. From what I've read on here, I was expecting at least a 2 week wait to hear back, if at all. So I was pleasantly surprised to get a call 10 days later on Monday, 7/29 from a recruiter in Atlanta (who spoke in monotone as she left what sounded to be a tired and oft-repeated message with her contact info.). She called my cell at 9:30am but unfortunately I missed the call.

When I tried to return her call, I kept getting a recorded request to enter my "ID" and "password" first (she hadn't made mention of such codes, so I wasn't able to contact her). I tried all day and got the same recording until I tried one last time after 5pm, at which time my call miraculously went straight to her voice mail. In spite of leaving my name & number (and an FYI about the "ID" & "Password" conundrum), she did not return my call. I did try to call twice more that week but she never returned my call.

I assumed that her job may be to call a list of potential interviewees until her roster was full. Therefore I may not have made the cut because I called back too late. It would be nice to have some insight as to that recruiting process. It's a shame to have missed a great opportunity because I missed that phone call. Incidentally, even if I had been able to take her call at the time, I would not have recognized the out-of-state phone number and therefore would not likely have surmised it might be FedEx about a local job. But now I know and this is why I'm posting this info so that others who are applying might be informed and aware.

Today I applied for another local courier position. I'll update this posting if/when I move along in the process. Fortunately, all of my resume data I initially entered had been saved by Fed Ex so the online application process for this job was very expeditious! Looks like Fed Ex knows how to speed things along in all regards!

Part Time Courier Interview

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Fedex Express.

Interview Details – Pretty simplistic interview process. Phone interview first, and then you get an "in-person" interview at the station with the managers were they ask you behavioral questions, etc. They jot down how you respond.

Interview Question – Be sure to come up with specific situations when asked about a certain time when you did something. Stay on point.   Answer Question

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.
