FedX hiring practices are astonishing. They have no problem wasting your time.

FEDX Advertises a job that really doesn't exist just so they can fill their "potential employee funnels". FEDX makes you show up for an entire day of testing with 40 other down-and-out people in the room just so they can put you in a funnel for a potential job that may come up 6 months from now.

THE ARROGANCE OF THIS COMPANY TO JOB-SEEKERS IS APPAULING

BEWARE OF FEDX

Go to FEDEX.com and look at the jobs. Be prepared to give every place you've worked for the last 10 years on the day you put in the application. Have phone numbers, addresses and dates-

I recently applied for a courier position and the only thing that drove me crazy was completing the customer focus exam and trying to hand-fill the application.

Anyone who is getting ready to apply needs to make sure they get down to the Work Source office in plenty of time. The rooms fill up quick and once they are full, they close the doors.

I'm glad I brought a resume with me as it seemed the administrator of the application process was somewhat surprised to see one.

I am curious if Fedex uses GPS on their trucks or vans? Also, is FedEx strong on promoting from within to positions other than driving?

Thanks

Also, make sure you have all your employment and residence history for 10 years. Do not make the mistake of trying to use a phone book to look up previous employers. One other thing that was surprising was that your 10 year background check includes ANY traffic convictions. So make sure you know your driving history.

I went for an interview today for the position of Import Agent. The head guys were nice. The interview questions were bland and read off the paper. They are now doing the background check on me. My wife was offered the same job a month ago but declined (she got a better Fedex position).

luvsong in Dayton, Ohio said: fedex doesn't send you for a drug test til they are getting ready to hire you. only the candidates that make it to the end are sent for drug test. all of the other candidates are not. $$$

not the case... fedex sent me for testing BEFORE they even processed my application. I have filled out mountains of paperwork, and been led along for weeks. I have not heard from them in quite sometime. These people will call you from a RESTRICTED number so you can't call them back. They really could give a crap less about you. TRUST ME.

Wow, Sunday night I applied to Fedex because I heard that they were hiring for the holidays. Today, (Wedneday) I just received a call regarding my application which I had recently submitted. After passing the brief telephone screening I was offered an interview to which I happily accepted and am now praying to get.

Hopefully this is it. For the past three months I have wasted much time and moneys scheduling and interviewing. I am eager to start back working very soon. I'm still blaming this damn recession. I have applied everywhere even McDonald's and I am still not working. Go ahead and say it, (Damn) I am not giving up though. With my outstanding working history, resume, degrees, certificates, references, letters of recommendations and also professional work skills I keep telling myself something will come through soon.

Good Luck to everyone and God bless America.

P.S.
To apply to Fedex go to www.fedex.com/ and look at the very bottom of the website and click on careers. I saw someone asking how to apply when i was reading.

Fedex might not be "the best" company to work for but I hope that I luck on on a new career soon. I will be back to let you all know how things turn out

I went for a interview for FED EX and the lady had me sign W2 forms and Direct Disposit forms and everything.

She told me this would be a seasonal job with an agency...

I want to know how long the agency will take to do the background check and how long will it take to do the drug test..?

Also do any of you know how much a seasonal PART TIME contractor driving local pays?

Because I really want to start work

I was just reading about your experiences with FedEx and would like to ask you a question if that is ok? I have an interview Thursday and was told to bring ten years of where i live and job history, plus they told me that the interview would take at least two hours. Do you remember taking that long for your interview and having to bring that much information along with you? Also, did you have to take some kind of test before the interview? Thanks again for all your help. I hope everything worked out for you.
Thank you for you time.
Barry

Ive recently interviewed with fedex express and did the drug test also the same day as fedex express interview.
This was about 2 weeks ago. How long does it take for them to call you back for a job offer? This is for the ramp handler postion at the DFW airport. they said they need ALOT of people. and at the application meeting there about 20 people there. But more than half wants to do the pm shift. I selected the am shift which she stated thats where we need the most poeple......how much longer till i get called?

I was wondering has anybody taken the Drive test,I came in friday at 10 am to take the drive test and was to take it in a ford e250 van,I never saw the road the fedex guy that was testing me had set up cones in the parking lot and told me to drive the van between the cones without hitting them and that once you start you could not backup to fix the next cone five trys forward and five trys backingup needless to say I did not pass that test,So now I am looking for another job,I have takeing road test before but not like that,I was just wondering if this is the norm for fedex.

I recently got a call back for the Pineville, NC location to be a package handler. I went to the meet and greet around Sept 29, 2011, signed the offer letter. Went and took the Drug Test the next day. Got a call to verify my residential history on Oct 10, 2011. I have not heard from the recruiter since, what is your best advice besides to have patience? Should I call the recruiters?

They did this with me, too. I got the initial phone call, visited the facility, and signed the job offer. Took the drug test the next day. A week and a couple of days later, I got a call saying I was cleared to hire.

Honestly, I'm excited to work at Fed Ex Express! It seems upfront and honest to me.

I wonder what the next part of the process is.

I would think that if fedex is paying for a drug test on you that you will get a job with them.Company's don't pay for that if they are not going to hire you.

i agree. i live in Rochester NY. i am not sure if it is different from state to state but i filled out an application online, called the phone number i was instructed to call after completeing the ap, and the person on the other end of the line nicely told me where to go for an interview. upon getting there, i found 4 more applicants waiting and we were interviewed or screened, whatever you want to call it, and asked to fill out paperwork. after that, ofcourse we were let go but asked to call back individually in about 2-3 weeks as they performed background checks on us.
guess what? 3 weeks later, i called, i was told my background check came back, i was clean and was on a call to start work list. no drug test, no nothing. as we speak, i work there now.
FedEx handles peoples packages. whoever they hire has to be a credible, honest, clean individual or face law suits for lost or broken packages.

You have to go to a sort observation before applying for a package handler position if you want to get anywhere. Don't just assume that fedex.com/careers will give you all the listings because it doesn't. Call your nearest FedEx terminal and ask when their sort observation is. The one in south austin, texas is at 5am on Wednesdays. Do not be late or you won't be let in. At the end of the observation ask smart questions and look awake. After you will be given paper work to apply. Its not a hard process at all. Usually takes two to three weeks between sort observation and start date because of the background check and drug test.

Fedex or for that matter any company is not going to send you in for a drug test if they are not going to hire you it all depends on your drug test,are you clean then don't worry about it.

I applied to a position at Fedex Express and received an email soon after saying my resume, application, and profile was a close match to the position and they would be in contact with me directly if my skills match the need of the job. Is this something they send everyone? Also this position is in Memphis and I live in Ohio, anyone apply to a position out of state an know how they would do your interviews?

Nasianez in Elizabeth, New Jersey

I applied for a few jobs on FedEx careers website about a week and half ago. I also applied for some openings today aswell. When I go to my profile it says I'm being considered for the positions I applied for that's all. I don't have experience in warehouse but I have over night experience in security officer and I have alot of office Experiance. It looks like they are not considering me because I haven't received no email or phone call. I will recheck my email to see if I see something.

I have an important question if someone can please answer for me. This has to do with background check. Now I was stopped by the police my break light was out and at that time and just to mention it was my first time that I had no car insurance for 1 month. Times were tough and that I couldn't pay for at the moment. Well my plea bargain was to do some volunteering at a nursing home. Will this affect my chances at getting a job at FedEx?

I applied online for a part-time courier position with FedEx Express last year. I received a phone call that same day to schedule an interview. After the interview I was sent for a drug screening (that same afternoon). I went back to the station and was offered the position (along with another person who interviewed that day). I went to training class 2 or 3 weeks later and have been a driver for one year now. I have had no major issues....in fact, when I pulled a muscle lifting a package, they took care of me. I feel blessed to have the job as not many companies give part-time employees full benefits & 401K. No company is perfect and I had a few bumps in the beginning but a little patience and things worked out. If you come in, do your job correctly, and give no reason for there to be a problem then any job can be positive. The only negative I can say is that it takes forever to get new uniforms! LoL. But again.......patience.
