Customer Service Interview

Customer Service
Reno, NV

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Estes Express in April 2012.

Interview Details – Professional and dignified - My interview was the friendliest, most comfortable of any in my experience. ANY job in this Transportation Company qualifies their candidates through all the processes: experience, background, criminal, and drug testing.

Interview Question – Related to exact experience in transportation (trucking) logistics, related experience, and specific soft ware experience.   Answer Question

Terminal Clerk Interview

Terminal Clerk
Baltimore, MD

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Estes Express in February 2013.

Interview Details – Met with Office Supervisor. Initially a nice interview. Sounded promising at first. Then met with Terminal Manager. Seemed genuine and sincere. Although I held off on asking him questions about how lateral transfers worked. Because my initial job interview I informed the office supervisor I was over-qualified for this position.

Interview Question – Mostly questions about customer service and duties I performed in another top-of the line freight company.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Verify everything you discussed with the office supervisor with the Terminal Manager. If I would have taken that simple step, I would have turned down the job as I was over qualified for Appt Clerk. I found out after the current OSD Clerk was promoted to dock Supervisor, that protocol called for more interviews and you could not just change sheets for a non-management job in the same department. First company I ever worked for where you had to inverview for transferring from a non-management job to a non-management job in the same department. Estes decided to hire from the outside and as of the date of this review, that person has also left the company.
