    Line Haul Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sauget, IL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at R+L Carriers.

    Interview Details

    Several of us drivers at Conway Central were informed by a co worker that R+L was opening a new terminal in Sauget Il. We contacted the company and were told when to come and fill out applications. The application was straightforward, at that time the requirements were a minimum of three years safe driving experience and a CDL with Hazmat endorsement. Two weeks later four out of five were called back, (one guy had just had a heart attack). The interview was easy and cordial, just rehashing my career to make sure everything matched the application. When I asked when we would take a road test the interviewer said You've been driving for ten years with no accidents I think we are OK unless you really want to go for a drive.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to leave Conway and take a pay cut to work here? I explained that I was tired of pushing the log book to and sometimes past the legal limit and working the dock at Conway.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Social Media Writer/Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Wilmington, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at R+L Carriers in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial application was made by resume via email. HR department followed up to schedule interview and requested completion of their online application.

    The interview was casual and incorporated both a "get to know you time" and conversation centered on experiences and skills. It was refreshing to be interviewed in a non scripted conversation style with multiple leaders in the hiring department.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult? I was asked why I was a better candidate than the others being considered. This brings the answer to personality, as I imagine we were all well qualified for the position. I imagine this question and my answer was used to best identify the best fit for this small tight knit department.   View Answer
    • I was asked the standard question about what makes me the best candidate out of the 3 being considered.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at R+L Carriers in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy to go through. I put in my application online and called the next day. I spoke with the terminal manager, who had me come in for an interview the next morning at 7am. Three days later I got a call stating that I had gotten the job and asking if I could start on Monday. The interview was very basic, just confirming what was already on my application, and discussing what the job would be like..
