I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ABF Freight System.

Interview Details – I met with a recruiter at my college career fair. I had an interview the next morning and it was at least an hour and a half long. I researched the company before and it showed that I knew information in my interview and the recruiter loved that! The recruiter was really interested in my personal life and my college experiences. It was really an amazing interview.

Interview Question – The recruiter asked me about a time when I've impacted someone's life   Answer Question

Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee
Worcester, MA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ABF Freight System in July 2012.

Interview Details – Shortly after applying they reached out to me to set up a one on one interview. The branch manager I interviewed with was very amiable and easy going. A couple weeks later I then interviewed with the VP of Operations who was a stand up guy and easy to get along with as well. The interviews were more of discussions, although they did ask typical questions especially all the ones everyone has mentioned on this website. They emphasized the fact that there isn't a typical 8 hour day, you are finished when the job is finished.

Interview Question – Tell me about a person whose life you impacted and how   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Need to be willing to relocate anywhere to one of their facilities all across the United States and Canada without assistance financially from them. They will move all your belongings through their transportation services though.
