    IT PMO Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Medley, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ryder System (Medley, FL).

    Interview

    Pretty standard. Phone interview, followed up with a panel interview, and then an offer. I interviewed with five people. It wasn't grueling. If you can, schedule in the afternoon. They warn you about "some" of the people who work there who are difficult and have zero personality/social skills. If they say that, take it as a huge red flag. When they say that, they mean it. Some people are super spastic and extremely rude.

    Rental Management Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ryder System (Braintree, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone interview the day I applied online for the job. Two days later I met with the rental manager for the region. It was an easy and relaxed interview. No hard questions and it was relatively painless. About 10 days later I had a second interview with the company. This time it was with the General Manager of the region. Again it was a relaxed interview with not too many difficult questions. Most of the interview had to do with how I handle difficult customers, or what bothers me the most about dealing with customers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ryder System (Newark, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and got a call after a month. Went to the interview in person after having the interview over the phone. My Interview went great and it was fairly easy. I e-mail the recruiter after the interview because she wanted me to tell her how it went, she then said she will let me know by the middle of next week. It is the end of the week now and haven't received anything from her. I called and left voicemail, she still hasn't responded back to me. Very Unprofessional i believe.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ryder System in April 2015.

    Interview

    Only got the first phone call. It came out of the blue about a week after I applied. Talked to one person for a while he was nice enough. Interview was straight forward, just questions about my resume and then questions that I had. They asked what time I would be available for another phone call and then never called back.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview

    This was by far the most unprofessional, highly irregular interview, I was ever on. I applied for a marketing job and was contacted by a recruiter within 2 weeks. The phone interview was standard and I was asked to come in for an in-person interview the next week. The in-person interview was at a marketing/sales only branch. I was taken to a large office where I met with the sales director who proceeded to tell me that traditionally, marketing roles had been used more to "get him coffee" than work on projects. The first hour he essentially grilled me on my knowledge of Ryder and asked very specific questions that someone outside the organization would not be familiar with. I am someone that performs due diligence learning about a company before an interview, but this was beyond anything I was accustomed to. The interviewer was also quite insulting throughout the process indicating numerous times that he thought I was young and didn't have much experience in the field (I had 5 yrs. experience at the time). In total, the interview was a lengthy 2.5 hrs and he asked me to come back for a second interview with him. However, the next meeting was going to be at a Starbucks 3 hours away because he said he was traveling to another regional location that week. All in all, I was very uncomfortable and felt I was on an interview where gender equality was obsolete. Needless to say I did not go back. Very strange.

    Interview

    Very informal. Phone screen started off the entire process. Following the phone screen there is an on-site interview. It was a few behavioral questions, ran through my resume, and then opened up for round table. Got a call a few days later from a recruiter.

    Transportation Customer Logistics Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ryder System (Nashville, TN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through indeed.com and received a phone call 10 days later asking to do an interview the following day. First Interview - over the phone with the person I would report to and another manager in the same role I was applying for. My only complaint was that it was difficult to hear, but they were polite, gave me time to answer and did a more than an adequate job explaining the role and expectations. They gave a specific time frame for a decision and when I should hear back as well, which was that they expected the candidate offered to begin the job 2 weeks from the upcoming Monday on which I interviewed,. Second Interview - I should expect a call one way or the other in 5 business days, but they said it would be over the phone as well with the boss of the first interviewer and others (possibly) Questions I asked: Q: What training is provided? A: I would ramp up in a month with someone from another location currently in the role, then receive 2-3 weeks of support from my supervisor. Q: Travel? A: 10% if that, only for training purposes (for me not direct reports) Q: What is the time-frame for a decision? A: 2 weeks from the next Monday.

    Logistics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ryder System.

    Interview

    Easy and laid back. Interviewed briefly over the phone with HR. About a week after that, I scheduled a face to face interview at OSU with another HR representative. Invited to Roanoke facility after my interview for another one, but declined because it wasn't what I wanted to do. One negative I encountered was the amount of time I had to spend tracking down emails. I was told I would receive 3-4 emails about Ryder throughout my interview process, but never got them when Ryder said they would be delivered. Had to call the HR rep to tell them I never received the promised emails. The lack of communication played a part in my decision to decline the Roanoke interview.
