    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FedEx Ground.

    Interview

    They called me and asked if I wanted to interview over the phone, we had great conversation. We then scheduled the official interview, they called me for that, then at that time informed me that the position was no longer available.
    They apparently gave it to a internal candidate.
    Not nice.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at FedEx Ground (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2011.

    Interview

    two interviews, quite simple...be confident, share past experiences and show interest in company, work hours the need you to...not just about you. It's about making the company better. They will help mothers and college kids with schedules, so go in there expecting great things and great things will happen. Holiday hiring is underway in late September. Even if you just work holidays, it's a great company and the management knows their stuff, most have been there a long time. I hope this helps in some small way for those that are in question about the company or are hesitant about getting their foot in the door, You will be glad you did. Just remember not to give up on your first week! Interview was simple. I had someone different for the follow up interview. Both went well.
