    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through wll known online jobs site. The recruiting process for FedEx is done through a staffing company FedEx has outsourced to do their talent acquisition. All Email correspondence and PDF forms to begin with with general vague questions about experience. Completed the form and sent it back within 24 hours. Recruiter emailed back tersely that he was expecting it it back within half an hour after he emailed it and it was holding up the review process. Nowhere in his correspondence or on the form did he indicate this. I told him this and twice he said he made it perfectly clear in his correspondence he had. Later, he said he hadn't stated the expectations ... but told me that it is customary for applicants to return pre-interview forms within 30 minutes and I should have known that. And he wanted specific details about my past/current employers, their rates, their current sales and marketing personnel staffing sizes, management turnover, the types of marketing campaigns and associated costs of those, the names of the top 15 customers I worked with and how much they shipped per quarter, if I had ever worked for UPS or knew someone who worked for UPS, specifically marketing and sales. All questions I found to be highly questionable to ask in a preliminary interview. And the recruiter was pushy - in emails he stated that they needed the information asap to keep me in consideration for the position - they weren't interested in anything else on my resume except specific marketing and sales questions about my present employer and the salaries and commission rates of those working there. I figured this entire "job interview" was just a data gathering exercise and there was no actual job. I told the recruiter that if the way the interview was being handled was any indication of FedEx conducts business or its company culture, I wanted no part of their company and maybe they should consider using a different talent staffing company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First step was a technical interview over phone for almost 50 mins. After more than a month I got email stating that there is another face to face round which will be behavioral interview.
    So usually FedEx has these two rounds.
    In technical round they ask basics to some advance concept of java. In behavioral round, question was pretty much standard. You can easily find some standard behavioral questions on internet.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FedEx (Coraopolis, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral questions with a few basic computer science questions. It was very easy, but that may be because I had an internship with the company previously. I'm sure it helped that I already knew the people interviewing me.

    Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FedEx (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call for a phone interview 3 days later. Then went to the corporate office in Pittsburgh for an interview with 2 people. First given 30 minutes to prepare a presentation explaining why they should choose you and how you plan to succeed in this role. Then they read a series of questions from a booklet, all of which seemed to have the same answer. A lot of "tell us about a time when..." and they always wanted more and more details even when there weren't any. I found the whole process tedious and annoying and was counting the seconds until the interview would come to an end. After the interview it took 3 weeks before I heard anything back about the position.
