FedEx Hiring Process

The FedEx hiring process begins with Brassrings's applicant tracking system (ATS). The ATS presents you with a brief questionnaire and the opportunity to upload your resume, CV, and additional documents. Once you do so, the ATS screens your application, resume, CV, cover letter, and additional documents for keyword-specific phrases. To ensure your application successfully makes it to the assessment round, be sure your answers and documents properly align with and mirror the job description. Learn more about applicant tracking systems on our dedicated ATS page. 

Once your application successfully passes to the next round, you will, depending on the job position, encounter pre-employment assessments. FedEx tends to utilize behavioral aptitude and personality tests (outlined below) in its hiring process.

Then, once you complete and pass the assessment phase, you will be asked to complete various interviews. You may encounter a one-on-one interview or a panel interview. To learn more about each interview type, receive interview tips, and practice mock interviews, prepare with our Interview PrepPack™.


Which FedEx Assessment Test Can You Expect?

If you are applying for a courier position at FedEx, such as a package handler or something similar, you will be asked to take a personality test to assess how you will fit in to the company profile, and a memory assessment test to gauge how quickly it will take you to process packages. Couriers may take a map proficiency test as well. However, these are becoming less common with GPS devices now so much more affordable and widespread.

When applying for a corporate position, the FedEx assessment test is more difficult and comprehensive. Candidates for office positions are asked general knowledge questions concerning science, history, English, and math. This test may be difficult for some, as well as surprising, because it is unexpected for certain positions to take such general exams. But FedEx is looking for well-rounded individuals in its workforce.


Caliper Personality Test

Used primarily for management positions, FedEx also utilizes the Caliper assessment in its pre-employment hiring process. Caliper’s multiple-choice personality assessment measures a candidate’s strengths, limitations, motivators, and likeliness to succeed. The Caliper test can take up to three hours to complete and has three distinct question types—which answer most/least reflects your perspective, strongly agree/strongly disagree, and true and false questions.
