    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ArcBest (Fort Smith, AR) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. I had a quick phone interview, then met an associate director on-site for the first face-to-face interview. I was asked many questions regarding background, technical abilities, and - most importantly - personality. I was invited back about two weeks later for a full-day interview meeting different teams and the different teams' associate directors. The interviews consisted of several one-on-one interviews and a couple of team interviews which included technical questions and programming questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ArcBest (Fort Smith, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First had a 25-min phone interview w/2 employees (project manager + 1 other). Then was invited for an on-site round-table interview w/4 employees (project managers, engineers). Mostly behavioral questions. Seems like the company wanted to ensure its employees have a personality beyond their jobs (one project manager wore a light purple suit and a bowtie) and they asked a few fun questions (What's something weird about you? What's your walk-out song?). After the group discussion, met with the ECS director but didn't really get asked any questions, just got an overview of the vision of the program (since ECS is new).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ArcBest (Fort Smith, AR).

    Interview

    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.
