    Truck Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Crete Carrier in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview is really nothing more than a pre-approval of your online application. Once pre-approved prepare to be accepted. You will then be asked to show up at a regional terminal office where they will provide you a motel room. You will then more than likely spend 3-4 days filling out some of the same paperwork you had already completed online, and been screened for drugs, physical, and fitness. You will watch endless safety vids and take multiple choice tests. Meals will not be provided except on the rarest of occasions. You will take a short driver test with another driver. You will not be compensated for the duration of this week. If you pass this first week of screening, you will receive either a bus ticket or a truck. This truck and or bus ticket will be used to take you to Lincoln Nebraska to Crete HQ.

    Now here's the part that will drive you crazy. You will redo every piece of paperwork, the drug test, the safety vids, the company vids, etc. You will be given a motel. Expect to be up early every morning, be fed cafeteria food, and be asked to stick around till 5pm every night for the motel shuttle. You will receive a truck assignment at the end of the week if you haven't already. Your compensation will be about $75 a day, unless something has change in the last year.

    You will likely receive your first load out of Lincoln on Thursday. Be prepared to run a couple weeks before you see the house, even if they tell you that you'll get right home. If you work on the home weekly fleet expect 1200-1500 miles a week max. If on the month out at a time plan, expect 2200-2600 miles a week.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no difficult questions, except, are you prepared to be out for a month away from family and friends with only 4 days home?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Any negotiation must be done upfront with the finance department and handled through the terminal manager. This is difficult. There is little leverage.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Crete Carrier in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Crete Carrier is very thorough in its hiring process. If you forget something in your past, or you try to hide something, they will find it. Full disclosure is the best route. My one complaint is that it takes about three weeks to get to orientation after submitting the application. Once in orientation, drivers are treated with professionalism and respect.
