OTR Driver Interview

OTR Driver
Tolleson, AZ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Con-way Freight in January 2013.

Interview Details – Fill out online application, call recruiting a couple days later to follow up, arrange a time to attend orientation, ride greyhound hundreds of miles, check into motel where orientation held ( for the Phoenix AZ orientation), take drug test/physical, fill out paperwork, twiddle thumbs for a week while HR verifies your background, take phone interview, take road test, then officially get hired.

Interview Question – Don't come to orientation thinking they've already verified your employment history/references -- they do that during orientation and will send people packing for lies & omissions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations -- everyone paid from a chart based on experience

Freight Operations Manager Interview

Freight Operations Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Con-way Freight.

Interview Details – The hiring went well. It can take awhile since they use a outsource vendor to do the background check. They were not fun to deal with but once everything was settled on boarding was simple. Benefits were immediately and the HR department was fast.

Learning and Development Facilitator Interview

Learning and Development Facilitator
North Richland Hills, TX

I applied online - interviewed at Con-way Freight in February 2012.

Interview Details – I received a phone call scheduling a phone screen within a couple of weeks of applying for the position. The phone screen was informal and a basic "tell me about yourself and your background" interview. I received a request for the first on-site interview within a week after the phone screen. I met with the HR Manager, who asked more in depth probing questions as to what type of training I had designed and implemented, for the first on-site visit. I was invited back for a second on-site visit to meet with the HR Manager and VP of Administration. For this interview I was asked to present a 15 minute training of relevance to the business. No additional questions were asked at the second on-site visit. I received the job offer the same day of the second on-site visit.

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Expectations were established up front.
