    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Ryder System (Alpharetta, GA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and was contacted via email by the HR recruiter based in Atlanta, GA. This position was also based in Atlanta, GA. She screened me for the position on the phone, and then said that she would call me at the end of the week to set up an interview with the hiring manager. I got the call along with the pre-background screening paperwork via email. I interviewed with the hiring manager and it was a basic interview: he told me about the job(s); I talked about my experience; he asked follow up questions and then he did a QA session about situational questions for a baseline screening. He told me that I would possibly have follow up interviews, and I did with another manager who was supposedly taking over for this manager that I interviewed with. However, I only think there is a phone interview and a face-to-face interview not all the additional follow ups.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Ryder System (Houma, LA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called the next day by a recruiter for an interview with local management.

    Interview went really well. Management is focused on safety and your desire to stay long term.

    As they were changing their hiring process, I immediately was taken on an extended 1 & 1/2 hour road test followed by a week of computer training. After that training lasts 2 weeks with an experienced driver to learn local operations.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ryder System (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    I met with multiple managers, only one of which was technical. So most of it was conversational. They seemed to be looking more at my character than my qualifications, or they were at least willing to take my technical qualifications at face value. They took me on full-time, but after that all new-hires were contract-for-hire. The technical interview process I developed while there was much more stringent, and focused on your thought process and problem-solving skills.

    Interview Questions

    • When I interviewed, the technical portion was very basic, and required only a rudimentary understanding of web technologies. When I left, the technical questions:
      1. Confirmed that you had at least some basic experience with the language and tools, and
      2. Really focused on your analytical and problem-solving skills.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't get the impression there was a lot of room for negotiation, but I thought it was a satisfactory offer.
