Western Region Driver Interview

Western Region Driver
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Marten Transport in May 2013.

Interview Details – Process was easy and thorough. Orientation was fun and informative. When I had questions they were answered without delay and with all the information I would need to make informed decisions. Orientation was set up similar to a classroom. The paperwork was minimal and not difficult. Questions were answered knowledgably. The accommodation and transportation were a bonus in my book. I was treated with dignity and respect through out the entire process. I was given all the information I needed prior to arriving for orientation which made thing go very smoothly. The interviewer explained that I would need my CDL, passport, and social security card. Their attitude towards me was warm and friendly, welcoming. During my interview I felt welcome and am very glad that Marten Transport hired me.They flew me to pick up my first truck so much better than a Greyhound bus. (THANK YOU) I have had some challenges but over all if you keep a cool head things work out. I would and do recommend Marten Transport to friends and other drivers from other companies. Overall my hiring and interview process was a very positive experience.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Wilsonville, OR

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Marten Transport in March 2010.

Interview Question – how do you handle difficult employees?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was too excited to negotiate, in part because I felt the offer was fair, and accepting it without contest a far better idea than taking the chance of being under bid by another prospective candidate.

Interview Details – Initial interview involved about 2 questions, 45 min of observation, followed by a quick follow up of what I thought. Second interview one week later involved no questions, just information about the company, another 45 min observation, followed by a verbal offer.

Fleet Manager Interview

Fleet Manager

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Marten Transport in February 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty laid back. I had the interview conducted in an office with other people that were doing there jobs like in a cubical environment, and the interviewer asked me some pretty basic behavioral questions that are typically asked at most companies. The traits that they are looking for is leadership and being able to work well under pressure, and doing research on the setbacks and limitations on the transportation industry can really help in the interview process to show that you have done research on it. They have offered me a position but I haven't decided on whether to take it or not. The best advice I can give is to do research on the company on google like on message boards reviewing the company and that can give you great insight on how to tackle for your interview.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself   Answer Question
