    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Schneider in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    First was an initial phone interview with HR (lasted 30 min), second was another phone interview with hiring manager (lasted 45 min) and third was a face-to-face interview with three individuals at once (lasted about an hour).

    Everyone has their own interviewing process but the questions asked didn't really pertain to the job nor how my past experiences can contribute to the position. The questions were fairly easy but I was asked multiple at the same time. It seemed like they were trying to intimidate me and make me feel uncomfortable (most likely to see how I respond). At one point the interviewer said (kind of laughing) I'm playing stump the interviewer. I left this interview thinking that this might not be a place I want to work.

    Interview Details

    i interviewed in the Dallas office near downtown and the office was very dull and was surrounded by other offices on the same floor. The questions were typical of those you would expect in the sales job interview.

    Supply Chain Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dearborn, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Dearborn, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    Hour phone interview and hour in-person interview at office. The managers interviewing me seems pretty unprofessional. The woman refused to answer any of my questions and directed her manager to do so. The entire time he was putting down his team saying some of them are "not so smart". I heard back a response fairly quickly because they were looking to hire someone asap. Overall, I found the experience extremely negative and this office seems to be a place where I would be unhappy to work at.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview one on one. Got back to me right away set up next interview in office. Had to fill out some paper work and apply for job online previous to interview. Question regarding how much salary you expect to earn. Office interivew was two on one. Was more of a conversation then an interview, basic behavioral questions. Asked about previous sales experience, what motivates me etc. Good people and company just the pay that was lacking for me.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Green Bay, WI
    Anonymous Employee in Green Bay, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schneider in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Schneider contacted me a couple days after applying and scheduled a phone interview. Phone interview went great and lasted about 30 minutes! A couple days later received a call from a recruiter to come back for an in person interview.

    The in person interview was awful. It's a panel interview with 3 "middle" management individuals that lasted an hour. Their questions were ridiculous! Who asks something like "what do you do to motivate people"? I'm interviewing for a Customer Service position, not a managment position. I have never had to motivate people!

    Anyway, the interview was very intimidating and it felt like they were trying to break me. They weren't even interested in getting to know me as a worker or individual...just supid behavioral questions that are not related to the job.

    I ended up accepting another position with a better Company for more pay.

    Schneider also never got back to me.

    Transportation Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    I got a HR screen interview. A very nice recruiter just asked some normal questions such like why do you want to work for Schneider National, why do you think you are the right person. After the 30 minutes interview, the recruiter immediately told me I can get another interview next week. I sent follow-up email every week after the first interview and they always told me that they were still reviewing my background. After three weeks, I was told they wouldn't consider me for this position.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schneider in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the job online and heard back from a human resources generalist about a week later. They arranged for a 30 minute phone interview, where they asked a number of questions about my background and interest in the position. Be prepared to explain your interest in the job, because it seemed crucial. Also, have several questions prepared before the interview begins, and spend some time researching the company.

    Truck Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fontana, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Fontana, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Schneider in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring is complicated; you need a comprehensive list of all employers and places you have lived for the past ten years. My best recommendation is to go get a free credit report, and it usually lists that info on there. After you fill out the application, you will get called up by a recruiter to do an over the phone interview, and they will set up a work physical. This is pretty basic stuff, you need to be able to lift with your legs, move a small crate, safely get into and out of the back of a trailer while maintaining 3 points of contact, and be able to duckwalk under a trailer.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected QUESTIONS, really. In training they expected you to be able to do a 90 back, which was never so much as mentioned at the driving school I attended. But they taught it, and I was able to get the hang of it easily enough.   Answer Question

    Brokerage Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Schneider in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of a panel of middle managers, many whose only experience was with Schneider national. Each panel ran the interviewee through the typical scenarios, really cookie-cutter questions with very little depth. Often they applied a Schneider tilt to the questions or expected one, also they posed a large number of grey area questions.
