    The interview process was pretty straight forward, but after you submit your application it takes at least a few weeks to get the results back from the background check. You will not get a offer until you complete your drug and background check.

    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx Freight East (Jacksonville, FL) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Phone screen by HR. SC Manager 1-on-1 twice. Phone interview with Managing Director. Salaried FREIGHT Supervisors are GROSSLY underpaid compared to FedEx sister companies with similar jobs (Express, Ground), and LTL industry average in general, assuming Glass Door info is accurate. Facilities, technology, etc. first class.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. Ops Supervisor II with FX FREIGHT EAST starts at $44,000-$46,000, take it or leave it. There is Profit Sharing Plan that can add approx. $2,000 annually. Despite the pay, FedEx Freight is still one of the top three LTL carriers in the business (in my opinion). Need to know going in that 12 hour days are the norm, despite what you may be told. Company training programs are very good. BEST THING A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE CAN HOPE FOR? Work for a Service Center Manager that takes a personal interest in mentoring, and is good at it. EVERYTHING considered...It's simply not worth it FREIGHT OPCO. Try for Express first, then Ground, Freight last. It's all FedEx, but there is a WORLD of difference.
