Regional Operations Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Con-way in February 2010.

Interview Details – I networked through their regional organization seeking an opportunity. I actually interviewed before the position was officially posted. I participated in two face-to-face interviews. Both walked through my resume asking me to highlight specific examples of challenges and solutions during each career stop. Interviewers wanted specific examples of goal attainment and dealing with difficult employees. Both managers were very 'leading' in recognizing that I had a strong fit with the organization. At the conclusion of the process they posted the position; told me to apply; and said we would meet again. I received official notice from corporate HR that I was a candidate. However, the nationwide posting generated a former employee with 8 - 10 years experience who was selected for the position.

Difficult Interview

EDI Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Con-way in July 2009.

Interview Details – Very long process, and new applicants being added along the way. First I was one of 5, then one of 10+ being interviewed in the 3+ months it took. Panel group doubled from 4 at first interview to 8 at second interview. Interviews scheduled 3+ weeks in advance to accomodate large group of interviewers, then 3 weeks for a decision, and another 3+ weeks to schedule second round of interviews. Two interviews, 11 different panel members (hiring manager was consistent), started in May, final decision in August. No feedback at the end as to why I was asked to second interview, but didn't make the cut for one of the 3 positions being filled.

Interview Question – How do you organize your day/time and how will that benefit our team?   View Answer
