    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Atlantic Express (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Well I saw the ad on career builder and I gave them a call. Was told to come in with an H6 and to show up at 1pm that Tuesday. I went and met with the safety supervisor and I was asked about prior employment and why I felt I was a good fit. Anyways I had my Class B permit with airbrakes and all I had to do was get an S endorsement put on which is just a matter of showing up to any DMV and asking for it. Anyway they tell u to show up Monday for class because for new applicants you have to have 20 hrs classroom time and 20 behind the wheel time. In class you have to get your finger prints taken about 3 or 4 times, take a physical, meet with the chp officer in your area, and once that clears and class room time is done you move into behind the wheel. They pay for everything by the way which is cool and they still pay you every 2 weeks while training (320 twice for a 640 total.) Having the commercial permit kills a lot of time and the instructors are really knowledgeable of their stuff..its a cool place to be.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really anything difficult. Pretty Straightforward.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Just the minimum wage training and whatever the union makes them pay you... The more you work, the more you get paid.
