    Class A Truck Driver Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Covenant Transportation (Chattanooga, TN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Over the phone with recruiter who was not exactly truthful. To be expected from trucking company recruiters so I was not surprised. He said I would get top pay, .56 per mile split, but they actually started me a lot less and it took a lot of phone calls to get it up to what it is now at .54 per mile split. They say they pay for experience, but I beg to differ. You still have to make phone calls to get the empty move pay and right now I have been trying to get paid on 196 empty miles I ran back in August and just getting the run around.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Covenant Transportation (Chattanooga, TN) in April 2014.

    They hire through temp agencies so there's really not much to the interview process. I interviewed with the temp agency first then interviewed at Covenant the next day. While I was driving home from the interview they let me know I got the job. If you do well after 3 months they hire you on with benefits and better pay.

    The interview is a panel interview with 3 VP's of the company. The director of human resources is very professional, but the VP's are a bit more laid back. That's not to say they are easy to impress, because they are all business and concerned with what will benefit their company.
