Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Chattanooga, TN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at U.S. Xpress.

Interview Details – Discussed my education, work experience and skills. The person interviewing me was disinterested and not knowledgeable about the position we were discussion. I met with the HR representative, department manager and director of the IT Division. The only person that seemed capable of discussing the position was the HR representative.

Interview Question – I asked what the advancement opportunities were available and the response I received was..."Advancement is based on the open positions at the time you want to advance." Needless to say, the response to my question was a prediction of the way things are at US Xpress. That was the most difficult question.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I requested a higher salary.

Driver Recruiter Interview

Driver Recruiter
Chattanooga, TN

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at U.S. Xpress.

Interview Details – Submit resume online, 20 minute phone screening, inconsistent follow-up. Very nice internal recruiters. Standard behavioral based interview with hiring managers and possibly a director. You will not know who will be in the interview, as they do not use meeting requests at this level.

Interview Question – I asked more questions than they did   Answer Question

Interview Details – Laid back interview. Talks about expectations, experience and office culture. Good group of guys in the office and expectations are well defined.

Not very interested in training fresh templates

Intern Interview

Intern
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at U.S. Xpress in September 2013.

Interview Details – Initially contacted by email to set up phone interview. Human Resources called me on the date/time of interview and conducted very basic interview. Then set up interview at office with director of operations. Interview went smoothly, director laid out the responsibilities of the job, asked a few questions to gauge knowledge of the industry, and made small talk for a few minutes. Total time was less than thirty minutes. Offered me the job before I left.

Interview Question – N/A. Questions were pretty generic which I expected due to it being an internship. The only tricky questions pertained to industry terms that I was unfamiliar with such as hot loads, lane histories, deadheading, consignee, detention etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Everything was negotiated with HR during the phone interview.

Regional Human Resource Generalist Interview

Regional Human Resource Generalist

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at U.S. Xpress in August 2013.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from a manager of employee relations from this company who proceeded to give me a phone screen for the regional hr position. The interview questions she asked had a lot to do with my knowledge of basic hr practices. She asked questions like how would you respond if someone came into your office and asked that the conversation be kept completely confidential? She also asked if I had any extreme experience in ADA situations. After the phone screen she invited me in to interview with her director of HR and the operations manager at a facility in ohio. When I arrived at the company, the director greeted me at the door but did not shake my hand because she had a cold. After the interview I was given a tour of the facility and upon goodbyes still no hand shake (which I appreciated) but she also could not provide me with a business card or any type of contact information where she could be reached.
