NFI Industries Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
National Accounts Customer Service Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at NFI Industries.
Interview Details – 4 interviews, time and money to go through the process. Very disorganized. All people that interviewed me are gone. The process was very disorganized and unprofessional. Very timely and not worthy of the position.
Interview Question – None, just conversation. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None
Class A Commercial Driver Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NFI Industries.
Interview Details – Interview process seems "standard" (on-line, long, tedious). The telephonic portion was "canned" - questions seemed straight out of Community College Interviewing 101. Not much thought put into the questions they chose to present - standard stock entry type. Nothing to worry about if you're heading towards this company.
Interview Question – The most difficult and unexpected "question" was NFI's requirement that driver candidates sign a "Pre Employment Agreement" that appears written by a sixth grade dropout; so poorly put together that only self confidence offers a suggestion of what NFI MAY be intending to accomplish. And, that would be the intent to have DRIVERS responsible for NFI costs of doing business, specifically cost of wrecker usage, cost of accidents, equipment costs, claims costs, and repair costs. The wording of the document (while MAYBE intending to) does not limit the drivers' exposure to those costs. I perceived that a driver could be surprised by being held financially responsible for these costs and have money withheld from a (final) paycheck, or repeatedly. As a minimum, the Agreement potentially places the driver in an opposing position with his/her employer. Moreover, NFI makes no leeway to account for equipment pre-condition upon assignment, at least at the time of signing the Pre Employment Agreement. If that is made available later, say when equipment is actually signed for by a driver, then I don't know that and, IMHO, such timing is too late in terms of drivers' exposure to NFI costs. NFI was unwilling to do away with the Agreement nor to modify it at the time of my experience. That was a "deal breaker" and I walked. (I did reach out to several CDL-A drivers from various companies and learned that they had not been asked let alone required to sign such a document as the NFI Pre Employment Agreement.) Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The required "Pre Employment Agreement" nonsensical construct and NFI unwillingness to do away with it or make modifications.

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at NFI Industries.

Interview Question – Hiring/Firing scenarios. Answer Question
Logistics Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at NFI Industries.

Interview Question – Again, none were unexpected, but a few were already answered on my resume. Answer Question

Director of Information Technology Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at NFI Industries in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by the NFI recruiter who thought I was a fit for the position following the phone screen.
I interviewed with the CIO for 2 hours who indicated that they would get back to me in two weeks. They never did. This is the most unprofessional organization I have ever encounter in over 30 years.
I sent multiple follow up emails to the CIO suggesting some possible solutions to business issues raised during the interview. They were never acknowledged.
I called the recruiter and even offered to work on a contract basis to which I never received a response.
