    Dispatcher Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Groendyke Transport (Wichita, KS) in July 2012.

    Interview

    No not having any experience with the transprtation business, I heard and add on the radio for a dispatcher. I turned my Resume in at 10:00 am on a Tuesday and by 11:00 am, the Assistant Terminal was calling for an Interview. I came in that day to a clean and well kept establishment. the first impression of Groendyke was WOW. The interview lasted about an hour, and within a month I was in the Transporation Industry.

    Interview Questions

    • The ATM asked me to explain ant my last job what was the most uncomfortable situation I had ever been in. I was previously in the customer service industry. I told him the story of how I was confronted by a customer who didnt think that hygene and personal care were an issue and that alchohol are all a good idea at once. Telling a stranger that specific story is rather embarrasing, especially when it is a stranger or your soon to be new boss.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It went better than I expected. I told my bosses that with not having any experience I was worth a lot due to other criteria. I told them the amount that I would have to have in order to work here and they agreed. Overall a very easy transition.
