    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fedex Express in December 2013.

    Interview

    A few days after applying on glass door a recruiter located in Atlanta, GA called me to discuss the position with me. She setup a secondary phone interview with an HR recruiter located in Memphis, TN who called me in the next couple of days. They then sent me to a local clinic to take a drug test and have a DOT health screening. And finally I had an in person interview with both the office and district managers who hired me right there. The following weekend I did a few simple multiple question tests on a computer and took a short safety driving course in one of the FedEx delivery trucks. I then started my first day of work on the following weekday.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fedex Express.

    Interview

    My transition into a full-time Swing Courier position happened through the company's hourly-employee CareerOps intranet system. When this happens, a job posts into a database that is updated weekly, hourly employees view the vacancies and bid on them. Whoever has the highest points in the system (based upon seniority, time in grade, etc.) gets the job offer. I was actually a part-time box handler at an airport before I made my first successful bid into a courier role.

    Interview Questions

    • Just remember STAR interview methods. The manager will ask you a question about how you handled a situation. You respond by describing the Situation (S), what your Task (T) was, the Action (A) you took, and finally the Result (R) of your action. Managers want SPECIFIC situations of when you overcame an obstacle or executed professional judgement, not just a vague response as to how you generally react to all situations.   Answer Question
