    OTR Truck Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Crete Carrier (Lincoln, NE) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out an online application and within 24 hrs. I was contacted by a recruiter from Crete. My recruiter was profession and polite, asking questions regarding my background and my goals going forward. During the vetting process he kept in touch with occasional request for verification on different items. He was open to all inquiries about Crete, answering all of my questions. They wanted me to drive for them as well as making sure that Crete was where I would like to be. I was very impressed with the whole process. I did take their offer and after completion of orientation I started as a national driver. After 3 1/2 months I have to say that Crete has proven to be everything I thought they would be, a professional outfit that respects their drivers and pays very well. I was very satisfied with the whole hiring process and glad that I chose to drive for Crete.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Crete Carrier.

    Interview

    Recruiter was MOSTLY right but missed a few things that bit me later. I was told I would receive higher rate of pay but before it was all over I lost 4 cpm. He seemed excited about my perfect mvr, 35 years experience and because of that, told me that I'd receive the higher rate.

    Interview Questions

    • How nany years experience I had. What my driving record was.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was not short. I told him my experience and what I'd like to see as pay and he said it looked like a go. Then after appli ation process they found that I worked in an unrelated industry for 8 months and used that to drop 4cpm. Not good at all. He assured me that at my 90 day eval I'd be boosted back up in pay...not even mentioned at all at my eval. Which was good. Un happy.

    Over the phone, was nothing more than a joke. They are to intrusive over the legal information they are entitled to as an employer. They will lie in your ear and to your face.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Crete Carrier (Lincoln, NE) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Crete's crack onboarding team reviewed my resume, CDL, driving record and truck-driving school transcript to determine I still had a pulse and wasn't moving too fast. When they realized I no longer had a pulse they applied a pair of defibrilation paddles to the sides of my torso and flipped on the juice just long enough for me to make my mark. Then they offered me a job.

    Once I was at the Lincoln facility a variety of automotons recited carefully rehearsed statements for the 400th time. One of them actually fell sound asleep in mid-sentence without missing a word. He remained asleep through the day, sleepwalking through lunch and the afternoon briefing which was conducted entirely in Latin.

    I sure hope that's 50 words.

    Online application. One week to get a call back to set up phone interview. Phone interview with 2 people. Tons of situational questions asked. References called 3 days later. Then got a call for 2nd interview with 2 people. It was short as short of a meet face to face as most questions were already asked over the phone.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Crete Carrier (Lincoln, NE) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Interview Process was a 2 step process. 1st you interview with the Human Resources Department. Then you will interview with the Department Manager. The process moves along very quick and is a pretty low stress interview. Overall I would say just be calm and go into the interview prepared.
