    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FedEx.

    Interview

    Initial screen over the phone with a manager from Finance department - standard questions about experience, personality and why I want to work for FedEx. Lasted one hour. Very shortly afterwards, I was contacted by an admin assistant and given two exercises in Excel to test my Excel skills, as well as my analytical and presentation skills. Exercises were very thorough and required some time to complete. Within one week after submission, I was contacted by the admin assistant to schedule a panel interview for three weeks ahead. On the day of the panel interview, I spent 5 hours there. The first two hours were with the panel. They came in with a package of 11 questions - mostly problem solving and critical thinking, some examples of situations. Very rigorous process.

    It is now one month, two follow-up emails, and still no feedback from them.

    Threat Awareness Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FedEx (Memphis, TN) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I sent my resume to FedEx for their advertised Threat Awareness Coordinator Position advertised.

    FedEx sent me an email asking me to call them to set-up an interview.

    They ask for your date of birth before they book your flight to Memphis, TN.

    No problems with the pre-paid airline tickets.

    FedEx booked us in the DoubleTree Hilton in Memphis.

    If you arrive after 9:30 pm you will have to pay for a taxicab to get to the hotel from the airport. No hotel courtesy van available after 9:30 pm.

    Cab fare is about $3.00 per mile and it’s just less than 10 miles from the airport to the hotel ($27.00 plus tip).

    I had to put $106.00 on my credit card to stay at the hotel because the hotel staff said FedEx was not paying for the hotel room.

    The person at FedEx that schedule the interview says they would get the hotel charges reversed on my credit card.

    I haven’t received an email from my credit card company yet that $106.00 charge for the hotel is reversed.

    I hope FedEx will reimburse me for the cab fares and meals that I submitted to them.

    Hotel Van will not take you to FedEx where the interview is because it is more than 3 miles.

    You will have to pay for another cab to the interview. It was more than $3.00 per mile and just less than 10 miles from the hotel to the interview location ($35.00 plus tip. $40.00 total).

    The interview is with a 3-panel interview.

    They asked for my Social Security number before the interview.

    They seldom make eye contact with you during the interview because they are reading their questions from a piece of paper in front of them and writing your answers on that piece of paper.

    Questions were difficult to hear sometimes because they were talking to the table.

    All of the questions are “what kind of employee would you be.”

    When they asked me if I had any question at the end of the interview they were unprepared and struggled with answering my questions.

    Some of my questions were “is someone in this position now, why is he leaving, why did you call me in for an interview.”

    FedEx did provide me transportation from the interview to the airport when I asked the person that scheduled the interview if she would help me get to the airport.

    Interview panel didn’t offer transportation to the airport.

    I emailed FedEx the next day saying I was not interested in their position.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FedEx (Dallas, TX) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Hiring process at FedEx is rigorous. The interview process breaks into 3 elements: written skills exams, an applied topic presentation and a behavior interview. The written skills exam focused on understanding corporate finance at a high level and how this information impacts supply chain and transporatation strategy. The presention followed similar lines with the evaluation focused on your ability to communicate complex information. Finally, the behavioral interview is a series of scenarios base on your previous work history. Quality "x' is important in this job. Tell us of a time in your previous work experience you faced this scenario and used quality "x" to succeed.

    Operation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FedEx (Dallas, TX) in February 2009.

    Interview

    Expect behavioral interview questions. Explain gaps in employment. Have examples ready. First step is a phone interview followed by site visit if you make the cut. If you make the site visit (face to face interview) your odds are then 1:3 to 1:5.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time when you had conflicting priorities? For example, your boss told you to do something and you thought it was not in the best interest of the company. The guidlines are fair and in line with industry norms. You will be paid somewhat more for your experience but not above what the position is worth.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very rarely do they negotiate, especially in the current economy. If you counter be prepared to walk away. The salary guidelines are very structured.

    Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx (Dallas, TX) in December 2011.

    Interview

    This interview process is BRUTAL! First of all this is an entry level position and FedEx acts like you are interviewing for NASA. The first step is a webinar that describes the position and everything that fedex expects from their employees. This process lasts about an hour. After that, they will email you a "Prove it " test- basically if you arent fresh out of College, get ready for 3 hours of critical thinking. Then "if" they call you, they will set you up with a one on one interview with a manager. If you get passed that they will invite you to the third interview where you will have to do a 10 minute power point presentation on a fictitious territory that you plan to grow. After that its a panel style interview process with 5 people throwing numerous questions at you. Very very hard. I have a Masters Degree and 5 years sales experience. I nailed the interview, but no offer was extended. Perplexed by this.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx (Toledo, OH) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I would rate the interview as difficult due to the manor of the two who questioned me on the situation test
    a five part question by the time they are done with the question (paragraph) your almost confused about your answer.
    This all happened after i waited 1 hr 15 min in the waiting room for my interview.
    their demeanor was cold as ice ,you leave having wondering how did i do?? absolutely no idea coming from the two robots who interviewed me. I felt as though i was taking them away from something they would rather be doing a smile is to much to ask, most questions are directed around someone with management experience Im applying for a driver position not management.
