Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx.

Interview

Basic BAR (Background-Action-Results) / STAR (Situation/Task-Action-Results) questions. Nothing overly difficult or atypical. It seems they most often do a two on one interview, but I've heard of some getting a one on one interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FedEx.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional and asking me questions about everything that didnt pertain to the position, never felt like I was in a professional atmosphere. I recommend people to ask bold direct questions to anything you are concerned about or you could be walking into a bad situation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FedEx (Houston, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very formal. Not my expectations of the role of an Operations Manager. I accepted the position and was blind sided by the physical work you have to put in, not to mention the paper work that has to be done. There is no time for office time and or training on new and or current events.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FedEx in November 2012.

    Interview

    To get your first job at FedEx as a package handler all you have to do is be alive and not be a felon. Having a car is helpful but not a must have if you know someone working there. Being a manager means you need to go through the normal series of interviews asking the questions you can find on a simple Google search about 'generic interview questions'

    Interview Questions

    • What industry periodicals/materials do you read to give you insight into the business and an idea of where our company/industry is going down the road?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They give you a piece of paper that is a contract where you will not seek a change of position within the company for 18 months. It also says your salary they are proposing which you can negotiate but good luck with that. They have all the power and a number of other applicants to go to if you get to picky.

    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.
