    Interview

    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.

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

    Negotiation

    There is NO negotiation other than relocation. Its a straight forward salary range.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fedex Express (Nashville, TN) in January 2008.

    Interview

    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.
