GM Interview

GM

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Pilot Flying J in June 2010.

Interview Details – Not bad. had multiple interviews with upper management. process was standard and not very difficult. Met with district manager first and had a casual semi-structured interview. after a couple week i then met with the regional manager at the time. this interview was a follow-up from dm's interview. i feel the decision was made prior to that interview. it was more of a formality at that time

Interview Question – general standard questions   Answer Question

General Manager Interview

General Manager
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pilot Flying J in October 2010.

Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter. They did a great job of hiding issues of this morally bankrupt company. The calls were very average. No real "got ya" questions. When I asked tough questions they either "spun" their answers(which you won't realize until it is too late) or deftly changed the topic.

Team Leader Interview

Team Leader

I applied online and interviewed at Pilot Flying J.

Interview Details – Took about three weeks. Was first contacted by a recruiter over the phone, then set up with an interview with the district manager of that area (I was interviewing for a location that was still in construction). He pushed me forward to an interview with my soon-to-be General Manager. Process was fair, and pay was comparable to the job.
