    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Ryder System in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who confirmed my interest in the position. I then did a telephone interview with the director of inside sales and two of the managers. They let me know I would be doing a role play and gave me the option to go ahead. I had gotten a brief description beforehand and went ahead with it then.

    After the phone interview they called me almost a week later to come in for an in person interview. This is where the process got interesting. The in person interview was with 3 managers and the director. They took turns asking various questions, some standard most unusual. The interview went from very formal and serious to laughing and relaxed several times so it was hard to gauge how things were going. All things considered it was a pretty good experience.

    Note to those interested: They will print copies of your linkedin and facebook along with your resume. Those profiles will be referenced in your interviews so make sure you know what is on there.

    I applied online – interviewed at Ryder System in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was called the next day by a recruiter for an interview with local management.

    Interview went really well. Management is focused on safety and your desire to stay long term.

    As they were changing their hiring process, I immediately was taken on an extended 1 & 1/2 hour road test followed by a week of computer training. After that training lasts 2 weeks with an experienced driver to learn local operations.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview Details

    I met with multiple managers, only one of which was technical. So most of it was conversational. They seemed to be looking more at my character than my qualifications, or they were at least willing to take my technical qualifications at face value. They took me on full-time, but after that all new-hires were contract-for-hire. The technical interview process I developed while there was much more stringent, and focused on your thought process and problem-solving skills.

    Interview Questions
    • When I interviewed, the technical portion was very basic, and required only a rudimentary understanding of web technologies. When I left, the technical questions:
      1. Confirmed that you had at least some basic experience with the language and tools, and
      2. Really focused on your analytical and problem-solving skills.
