Drivers Business Leader Interview

Drivers Business Leader

Interview Details – First is an initial phone interview. If you do well, then they will ask you to come meet face to face with a few people. They ask a lot of behavioral questions and about leadership. They are very straight forward in their hiring process and fairly quick at getting back to you in a timely matter.

Interview Question – When was there a time you had a disagreement with a co-worker and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

Inside Sales Account Executive
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

Interview Details – Met a sales manager and sales representative at my school's career fair. The next day I had am interview scheduled with the two gentleman that I met the previous day. They then asked me at the end of the interview if I wanted to continue with the process to then submit my resume and information through their online careers website. I did that and an HR person contacted me within a few days after that. I was at Schneider's office in Chicago for my final interview about two weeks later. I interviewed with two account managers. They were somewhat standoffish, very serious and very professional. And after an hour and a half interview I left and a few days later the HR person called me and offered me the job.

Interview Question – The questions were just really normal behavioral questions. The most unexpected question was when you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had other opportunities available at my disposal.

Very Easy Interview

Truck Driver Interview

Truck Driver
Fontana, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Schneider in September 2011.

Interview Details – Hiring is complicated; you need a comprehensive list of all employers and places you have lived for the past ten years. My best recommendation is to go get a free credit report, and it usually lists that info on there. After you fill out the application, you will get called up by a recruiter to do an over the phone interview, and they will set up a work physical. This is pretty basic stuff, you need to be able to lift with your legs, move a small crate, safely get into and out of the back of a trailer while maintaining 3 points of contact, and be able to duckwalk under a trailer.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected QUESTIONS, really. In training they expected you to be able to do a 90 back, which was never so much as mentioned at the driving school I attended. But they taught it, and I was able to get the hang of it easily enough.   Answer Question

Regional Inter-modal Truck Driver Interview

Regional Inter-modal Truck Driver
Saint Louis, MO

I applied through other source and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

Interview Details – Application submission and if accepted then an interview for a driver, and I don 't have any knowledge of the managment side hiring process. The company will help you acquire a class A CDL if you don't have one at the time of application. If you choose this route you will be interviewed and hired on a tentative basis at the completion of CDL training, typically a 3 week process. The school will be payed for by the company if you complete it and remain employed for 1 year.

Interview Question – nothing unexpected or difficult   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – As an unexperienced driver there were no negotiations. Experienced hires may be able to negotiate where they fall in the driver pay schedule.

OTR Driver Interview

OTR Driver
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Schneider in July 2012.

Interview Details – First of all you will start off by filling out an application online. If you meet their initial criteria they will eventually conduct a phone interview. Next is a drug test and a DOT physical. When you pass that you will get a conditional job offer that is contingent on your background check. Training is as required which may entail any required classroom training and lastly any required driving training. Successfully completing all of the process means you have a job with SNBC.

Negotiation Details – You may be able to get a higher pay rate if you negotiate well but other than that they have a pay scale that they try to stick to.
