Very Difficult Interview

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at ABF Freight System in March 2014.

Interview Details – They had contacted me over email with a number of different dates/times to interview. Once I chose a convenient date and time, they changed there minds 3-4 times. The background check was unreal. They asked me for information and documents at least a dozen times. The HR Contact I had lost my information ad documents 3-4 times and blamed it on me. This company has no structure and is very disorganized.

Interview Question – The 2 people I met with had a long list of behavioral questions and they seemed to not understand most questions or why they were asking them.   Answer Question

Entry Level Ratings Position Interview

Entry Level Ratings Position
Fort Smith, AR

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at ABF Freight System in April 2014.

Interview Details – After a few months of submitting an application I was asked to come in to take the skills test. It is fairly basic. I had a couple of interviews afterwards. This part of the process took about 3 hours total. I got lucky in that they had people ready for me to interview with since I got done with my test, but you may have to come back for the interviews at another time. After a couple more weeks, I was asked to come in and interview again. A week and a half later, out of the blue, I was asked to take a drug test for the position. This is an office job mind you. So just beware, they don't mind wasting your time with everything I've mentioned just to turn you down for a drug screening that they don't discuss.
