    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview Details

    This was by far the most unprofessional, highly irregular interview, I was ever on. I applied for a marketing job and was contacted by a recruiter within 2 weeks. The phone interview was standard and I was asked to come in for an in-person interview the next week.

    The in-person interview was at a marketing/sales only branch. I was taken to a large office where I met with the sales director who proceeded to tell me that traditionally, marketing roles had been used more to "get him coffee" than work on projects. The first hour he essentially grilled me on my knowledge of Ryder and asked very specific questions that someone outside the organization would not be familiar with. I am someone that performs due diligence learning about a company before an interview, but this was beyond anything I was accustomed to.

    The interviewer was also quite insulting throughout the process indicating numerous times that he thought I was young and didn't have much experience in the field (I had 5 yrs. experience at the time). In total, the interview was a lengthy 2.5 hrs and he asked me to come back for a second interview with him. However, the next meeting was going to be at a Starbucks 3 hours away because he said he was traveling to another regional location that week. All in all, I was very uncomfortable and felt I was on an interview where gender equality was obsolete. Needless to say I did not go back. Very strange.

    Transportation Customer Logistics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ryder System in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through indeed.com and received a phone call 10 days later asking to do an interview the following day.

    First Interview - over the phone with the person I would report to and another manager in the same role I was applying for. My only complaint was that it was difficult to hear, but they were polite, gave me time to answer and did a more than an adequate job explaining the role and expectations. They gave a specific time frame for a decision and when I should hear back as well, which was that they expected the candidate offered to begin the job 2 weeks from the upcoming Monday on which I interviewed,.

    Second Interview - I should expect a call one way or the other in 5 business days, but they said it would be over the phone as well with the boss of the first interviewer and others (possibly)

    Questions I asked:
    Q: What training is provided?
    A: I would ramp up in a month with someone from another location currently in the role, then receive 2-3 weeks of support from my supervisor.

    Q: Travel?
    A: 10% if that, only for training purposes (for me not direct reports)

    Q: What is the time-frame for a decision?
    A: 2 weeks from the next Monday.

    Logistics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview Details

    Easy and laid back. Interviewed briefly over the phone with HR. About a week after that, I scheduled a face to face interview at OSU with another HR representative. Invited to Roanoke facility after my interview for another one, but declined because it wasn't what I wanted to do.
    One negative I encountered was the amount of time I had to spend tracking down emails. I was told I would receive 3-4 emails about Ryder throughout my interview process, but never got them when Ryder said they would be delivered. Had to call the HR rep to tell them I never received the promised emails. The lack of communication played a part in my decision to decline the Roanoke interview.

    Finance Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ryder System in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position and was contacted via email by the HR recruiter based in Atlanta, GA. This position was also based in Atlanta, GA. She screened me for the position on the phone, and then said that she would call me at the end of the week to set up an interview with the hiring manager. I got the call along with the pre-background screening paperwork via email. I interviewed with the hiring manager and it was a basic interview: he told me about the job(s); I talked about my experience; he asked follow up questions and then he did a QA session about situational questions for a baseline screening. He told me that I would possibly have follow up interviews, and I did with another manager who was supposedly taking over for this manager that I interviewed with. However, I only think there is a phone interview and a face-to-face interview not all the additional follow ups.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview Details

    Communication was excellent from the onset of the recruitment and interview process. The interview was rough. I was told I was going to interview with two managers via phone call. When I was called, there were three managers each with 30 years of experience. The managers we not friendly and seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. It was difficult to differentiate between the three managers.
