    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Arkansas Best.

    Interview Details

    Process consisted of a phone interview, two face-to-face interviews and an extensive background check. The phone interview consisted of very basic background questions and resume clarification. The first face-to-face interview consisted of behavioral and situational questions followed by a skills test (math and typing). The second face-to-face interview was with the VP of sales and consisted of more behavioral and personal questions to see if I was a fit for the culture.

    I was offered the position the same week and accepted. The whole process took about 2 weeks.
