    Biller Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The woman who interviewed me was super nice and easy to talk to. Made me felt less anxious since it was my first time applying for a job. You can dress casual during the interview. Would be nice if you were in dress shirt and pants (I did), but someone else who was also being interviews was dress in jeans but a nice button down. HR was friendly and we ended up talking about things that weren't related to the job. Interview was shorter than I thought it would be. Would've been shorter if we didn't talk about random things. I think the overall process was less than an hour. Ber short and easy.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Central Transport (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Fill out application, get an interview on the spot with a recruiter in the warehouse. They copy your license & SS card, and fax it all over to the recruiter center. After they discussed my background I listed, they asked me about my skills, etc. The recruiter sent me to the drug screen that same afternoon, after about an hour of talking with him. I took the test, and brought back the form for him. He said it would be 3 days or less and I could get approved. Pretty fast, process.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Central Transport (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Too much emphasis on the personality test and years of experience were ignored. Will try to fit you in a box despite contradictions. Skill set not taken into consideration and will try to place someone the opposite of what is on the resume.

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Central Transport (Warren, MI).

    Interview

    This was a pretty corporate interview. I was there about 2-2.5 hours for my interview. Requires a 3 question timed 20 minute essay. It's easy. Then what I would assume a test to see if your dyslexic. Then you meet with HR, be prepared to answer every little thing about your resume. The ask you about your parents, old co workers, references, what your spouse does for a living. Then if they like you you move on to another interview with the supervisor.
