Courier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Saskatoon, SK

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at FedEx in August 2013.

Interview Details 1. After submitting an online resume and cover letter you will likely get a phone call that will include a short over the phone pre-interview.

2. If successful you will receive an in-person interview and you will be asked to bring a high-school transcript and a recently obtained record of your driving (transcript).

3. If you are still successful, you will be asked to take a driving test, much like you do for a regular driving license. This will typically be in a car, not a FedEx Van. At the same time you need to go online and give FedEx the OK to do a background check.

4. If you are hired, you will be on a 6-month probationary period.

Interview Question – Behavioral: Describe a situation where you had to deal with a difficult customer and did not do a very good job of satisfying their needs.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation phase - you get a letter of offer and make accept or not.

Easy Interview

Hospitality Parcel Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Toronto, ON

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FedEx in October 2012.

Interview Details Applied through the FedEx website for the position and answered the initial qualifying questions. Heard back from the Manager within the week via email to set up a phone interview. The phone interview took nearly 45 minutes and in that time we covered a lot including past employment, personality and performance pertaining to the job. The second interview was in person and with the same Manager that contacted me originally. The second face to face interview was 45 minutes long. Considering the job description and title was new to Canada the Manager felt the questions were not suited to interview and that their relevance had nothing to do with the job I would be doing if I was hired.

Interview Question – Name a situation that you could have handled differently?   Answer Question
