Driver Recruiter/Screening Agent Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Schneider in February 2013.
I applied online in January, and was contacted a few days later to set up a Phone screen with a Recruiter. The initial screen was a nightmare! The recruiter was so condescending and was constantly interrupting me--I hardly got a word in. I thought the interview went horrible, and didn't expect to ever hear from them again.
Three weeks later, they proved me wrong, and I was contacted to set up an interview with the hiring managers for both a Driver Recruiter/Screening Agent position. Due to my college being 2 hours away from the HQ, and the urgency to conduct the interview as soon as possible, my interview was done on the phone, which is not typical for this position. The interview was between myself and three regional recruiting managers, which included behavioral questions, and plenty of insight into the position/company. The interview went exceptionally well, and they said they would contact me shortly to invite me to Green Bay for an in-person meeting.
A week later, I traveled to Green Bay to observe the positions first hand, and have any questions answered that I may have had. I enjoyed this portion being able to see the day-to-day functioning of a recruiter, and everyone was very kind.
After the shadowing portion, I was offered my choice of positions. They were aware that I was in the middle of another interview process, and since their need to fill this position was not immediate, they gave me ample time to weigh my options.
- Tell me about a time that you had to explain your position to someone who thought differently Answer Question
I declined the offer, because I didn't feel ready to label myself as a Recruiter this early in my career. I felt that I would like to utilize my degree in a Generalist role, and my decision was not reflective of the company itself at all.
