Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee
Miami, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ryder System in April 2014.

Interview Details – After submitting my resume, a recruiter called me to identify my functional interests. Within two days, I was asked to fly to Miami for an all-day interview with Ryder Management. The interview day consisted of a quick background of Ryder's history by an HR representative followed by 6 thirty minute interviews with different functional heads. The interviews were conversational in nature without many unexpected questions. I felt the interviews went well. This entire process was done in about 2 weeks.

After the interview, I was told I would hear back within the week. However, I never received any sort of closing communication from the company (despite several calls, voicemails, and emails). Who knows - maybe they have a long decision-making process? It has been over two months since the interview and I have also not been reimbursed for the hotel and car rental expenses the company asked me to incur.

I can honestly say I've never received such disrespectful treatment from a recruiting staff and can only hope for future employees that this behavior does not reflect on what it must be like to work at this company.

Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee
Portland, ME

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Ryder System in February 2012.

Interview Details – Everyone was extremely nice and the interview was pretty informal. It's only been a day, so waiting to hear back for a possible second interview. Pay is awesome and seems more then industry norms. Training, from what I heard, seems to lack a bit but getting stuck in right off the bat can be a plus.

Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee
Plainfield, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Ryder System in May 2011.

Interview Details – First, received a call about the program to ask for interest, and setting up an initial phone interview. Once the phone interview was over, an onsite interview with a panel was conducted. Initial questions were strengths, weaknesses, and what do you know about the company. Your goals and your group experience are also asked. The people in the interview were extremely friendly, and they are also very open to any questions you may have.

Interview Details – Well the questions asked ranged from tell about your sell to tell me about a time when you were frustrated and how you dealt with it. People were very nice but one guy in the interview seemed to act better than everyone else in the room. For an interview with them you will just have to have a few times when you have overcome an obstacle.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you were frustrated and how did you overcome it?   Answer Question
