    Recruiter Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Prime.

    Interview

    Very short interview process. They will not disclose pay prior to offer. Everything is incentive so they will not guarantee any pay. They tell you that prime is very flat and there is no career development. They allow you to job shadow but the person normally is not expecting you and it's hard to know what the job is really like.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Prime in February 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy process and not fluid at all. Start to finish was about 4 months. Human Resources was very last minute on things and did not communicate with supervisors in regards to start date or with interviewee. There was a phone interview that was mostly behavioral in nature, then an in person interview with a panel of two managers and HR, then a second interview with the senior management. Finally a job offer about three weeks later. Then the drug test and background checks. I started approximately 6 weeks after the job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Prime (Springfield, MO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview to start followed by a month of document gathering. Greyhound bus to the campus then about four days of drug tests, physicals, background checks, computer terminal tests, simulator driving and pre trip practice before about 2 weeks of student driving followed by a pre trip/ backing/ road skills CDL exam and about 3 months of team driving with a trainer. The training process was long, the training department didn't make any exceptions to the process and the trainers were not very flexible but that is what is needed in order to train drivers. After I was employed, it took about 3 months to get started with any sizable income.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Prime (Springfield, MO) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Lots and lots of paperwork signed my name and ssn# about 200 times...no joke. After background check and driving record then it's the drug test. if all that checks out then it's hours of watching company propaganda and educational films...like load security sexual harassment and distracted driver among many other films most will have a test at the end. Then it's on to a simulator to see if you can actually drive without putting the general public at risk....it's actually pretty fun. Then it's on to the real thing driving a truck in a team situation. Total time involved is 5 days before you get behind the wheel.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of people had issues with criminal history or driving history they want to know everything and if you don't disclose it they WILL find it then you are finding your own way back home. I didn't have these issues but watched a lot of people sit across the street some for days until they could figure out a way back home.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Prime (Springfield, MO) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Orientation is 4 days and is basically a week long interview. There is an actual interview in this time that essentially just goes over your application, mvr, medical and criminal records. As long as your records match up to the information you gave, and you have nothing disqualifying, your hired. The other things they focus on are punctuality and your ability to follow direction. If you show up late and/or fail to do what your instructed to do, you will probably be sent home.
