    Dock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FedEx Freight (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly laid back and relaxed. In my experience the interview started off with a brief description of the job I was interviewing for. After this, I was asked fairly simple and straight forward questions on why I applied for the job and such. After this I was asked a series of situational questions and I had to answer each question on how I would handle the situation. Once I was done with that I was asked to do a brief basic math exercise having to do with counting freight on a skid. Once this was done the interview was basically over and took somewhere around 30 to 45 minutes of so.

    Dockworker-Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx Freight (Wayne, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    You are asked a series of questions about your background. First one is are you aware that you will be working in any and all weather condition. Once you complete the series of questions, you are asked to read a sheet of standard signs, like, stop, go, hazard, do not enter. After you read all the signs you have to take a math test consisting of blocks. Basically you have to count each box/blocks. They give you a formula to use but you can really just count them on your own. Once completed, they take you on the dock and test your skills on the forklift. You are first orientated on the forklift, than you do what is asked. You have to drive the forklift forward and backwards and then stack ( I forgot what they are called).

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FedEx Freight (San Bernardino, CA).

    Interview

    Once my resume was accepted, I went through one small group interview, which is not the case for all applicants. After the group interview was concluded, a drug screening was required for further consideration. After the screening was completed I went through one final interview in which they assess basic skill requirements for the job, which was very easy to pass, assuming you have basic spatial awareness and can utillze basic math skills.

    City Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FedEx Freight.

    Interview

    Many applications online. Six months of no word. Got called out of the blue on a weekday at 2:30pm. Came in, filled out more paperwork, background check, everything had to pass before I could proceed further. They will not waste their interview time with anyone not qualified to be a driver. Interviewed in person with both the small terminal manager and operations supervisor. Two different interviews on different days. Then I had to take a driving test. Then I got "hired" to come to work and ride around with people until I could go to a major hub and take a week's worth of classes to prepare me for actual pickup and delivery. They paid for hotel and food for that trip, but I had to share a room with someone. After that point, I was on a 90 day probationary period. All very standard stuff.
