    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide.

    Interview

    Initially interviewed with mamager. No talent in interviewing, read off script. Kind of embarrassed for her to be honest. Not within her skill set. Then her manager who also lacks social skills talks to you. I'm guessing most of their time is,spent under a rock.bj

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide (Cheektowaga, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    My interview was very brief, no longer than 5 or 10 minutes. I was asked very basic questions, none that were specifically related to the position I was interviewing for.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. I didn't receive a phone call from YRC, I received a call from the temp agency (you are hired as a temporary employee to start and after 3-6 months you are evaluated for a full time position if there is one available.) Everyone starts at $11.50/hour, there is no negotiation.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide (Memphis, TN) in September 2009.

    Interview

    One on one interviews with 3 different people (HR manager, hiring manager and Director of Ops). Phone interview with Area Director of Sales. Then final interview with hiring manager again. Talk about problems you have overcome in past positions. Talk about building relationships with clients and this is your strongest ability. Talk about selling value over price. Interviewing now will be very different since all the managers have changed positions or been let go.
