Director Interview

Director
Miami, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Ryder System in July 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview with HR, followed by onsite interview. The initial contact was through a local recruiter who found me online via one of the job boards. There was a period of scheduling conflict and then we finally settled on a date for the interview. The first interview was the typical HR interview, nothing special, just going over background, general experience, compensation, etc. Then an onsite interview was scheduled with the hiring manager. The onsite interview was short, 30 mins. The job was not a fit, so the interview should never have been scheduled. I was looking for senior leadership position, and this was a technical hands-on position.

And they havent replied yet.

Transfer Driver Interview

Transfer Driver
Kapolei, HI

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Ryder System in July 2013.

Interview Details – LONG drawn out process. From initial application to orientation was over 4 months. This was the first time I was ever tag team interviewed. The hiring process was conducted from the mainland, I think that the interview was only a formality. Found out later that the two that they had wanted for the positions available were not qualified and not eligible. They made sure I knew I was not the first choice. They made abundantly clear that they would not offer any benefits of ANY kind.
