    Interview Questions
    • Interviews were pretty much on experience and personality based focusing on teamwork and interaction in different situations. The people interviewing were nice and made me feel comfortable.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I accepted the offer initially but was unable to join since I had a family emergency 3 days before joining and ended up travelling internationally for more than a month and hence had to decline the offer after accepting. I had done a lot of research on housing, schools, commute time, had talked to apartments, etc.

    Transportation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at CHEP in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hired on spot and prior to interview because managers pick their candidates beforehand. Managers also play favorites so I knew I needed to know someone within to even be considered. I've seen many qualified people not get into role because of what they appear like as opposed to what they can do. Manager also asked me my religion during the process and I wish I had that on tape.
