Driver Interview

Driver
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online - interviewed at McLane Foodservice in January 2009.

Interview Details – The interviews are not bad. Typical interview. If it is a CDL A driver position you will think they do not want to hire you. This is because it is a physical job and they tell you up front.
You will have to be presentable with good people skills. Although it is a driving job, you are required to have good customer service skills. Keep this in mind at the interview.

Interview Question – Have you ever faced conflict in the work place and how do you handle it? What do you do if you have an irate customer?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Salary is known upfront.

Driver Interview

Driver

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at McLane Foodservice in December 2008.

Interview Details – I applied off a tip that the company was hiring. Once you fill out the application, if the company calls you back you go in and have an interview with the department senior manager. Once that’s passed you speak with the HR manager. You are then sent to a 3rd party company to participate in a Strength test “Since the job does require lifting at any point in time” after the strength test you have to undergo a series of urine, and hair test for drugs. IF all is well, the company tends to contact you fairly quickly for a second meeting of all the managers. This second meeting is a relax atmosphere, generally food and drinks are provided. The offer is then made, and explanations of policies are discussed in detail.

Interview Questions

  • How would you rate your-self as working unsupervised?   View Answer
  • What’s your position on training others? Do you feel you can train?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation phase; this company can easily call other centers for help. Job opportunities don’t open up often, so if you’re in the position to accept a job offer TAKE IT.
