Parcel Assistant Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FedEx SmartPost in July 2016.

Interview

Attended tour on 7/19/16, it was a basic introduction that lasted 20 minutes about what you'd be doing for ~4 hours a day. The same day they sent an e-mail to complete an application (which was basic, and I completed the same day). The next day 7/20/16 they called me with a quick phone interview, and then after they sent the background check agreement online, which I completed. One week later on 7/26/16 they called telling me my start date for orientation/paperwork completion. They said to come in a week later at 1pm, but since I applied for Twilight (5-10pm) because of my main job, I told them about it and said to instead come in at 5pm but in two weeks, which was fine for me. So don't be afraid to mention that stuff!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FedEx SmartPost (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty simple. I was already a temporary worker before the interview( to become a permanent worker). They just asked a few questions (none that I can remember since it's been a few years already). I'd say honesty is what got me the permanent job. The manager that interviewed me has seen how I've been on the job so maybe that was a bonus too. Just show that you are a hard worker and you're willing to handle pressure.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at FedEx SmartPost.

    Interview

    You just have to go online, find your closest Hub, and set up a time that you want to "observe a sort" (you should choose one that is during the shift you would like to work). After you observe a sort, they will send you all information to fill out application, background history, etc... After you are approved for all of that, then they will contact you about your orientation day in which you will spend all day learning and training before being put onto the floor. Very simple process
