    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Con-way Freight in May 2015.

    Interview

    Was very professional. Its the trucking industry so be prepared to work around truckers. The interview itself was very well conducted. The usual questions, integrity is important, so not having any would result in not getting hired. This company is all about arriving on time. Since getting hired I've learned that they don't hire anyone who comes in late.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Con-way Freight.

    Interview

    It was a very disappointing experience as I came perfectly prepared and the company was not. I got many sorts of conflicting information. First, I met with HR, who said the entire team got an email this morning so everything was ready. They made sure I would have a Mac adapter, which I requested, and I was actually going for a 2 hr interview (not 1 hr as previously stated). She said I was meeting with one person from UX, and then the entire team. I said that was fine, even though it was not as planned. When I met with actually 2 people from UX, they seemed surprised I had a presentation, which I was told to prepared. They also did not have an adapter, and seemed to have never heard of a request. Luckily, I came ready with a flash drive in case this happened. Then, they ended the interview at 1 hr, and i asked where I was going next, but they said it was only a 1 hr interview, and they'll ask me back after discussion. One person didn't seem to know what project they were hiring for. I'm not sure where the breakdown in communication was, but it was one of the most disorganized experiences I've been through.

    Freight Operations Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Con-way Freight.

    Interview

    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.
