    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Old Dominion Freight in September 2014.

    Interview

    There were three interviews. I had to do a lot of studying and find out on the company itself. Its background, grass roots owner. A lot of the actual culture that is still represented. Respect, kindness, and hard work were all major requirements. Fantastic communication and friendly interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Old Dominion Freight in September 2017.

    Interview

    One on one interview was standard & very positive. Standard interview questions, i.e. Tell me about a time... The interview was followed by a driving test and contingent offer of employment. The physical & drug screen occur very rapidly. The background check and employment verification took almost 4 business weeks. To be fair, it may have taken that long due to my employment history (more than one job in the 10 year history) but I've heard the same story from others as well.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Old Dominion Freight (Dallas, TX) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy. Friendly interviewer, and free of stress. If you know the basics of computer you will be able to answer all the questions (no paper applications). Of course, you need to bring your commercial driver license. It will take you an average of two hours to complete the interview application process. If considered for employment you will need to take a physical exam, and a road test if applying for driver.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Old Dominion Freight (Thomasville, NC) in June 2013.

    Interview

    There was initially a phone interview which involved some technical questions but mostly background. This was followed up by a one on one interview with the hiring manager where more technical and goal oriented questions were asked. He knew exactly the experience he was looking for and cut straight to the chase about it. Then there was a one on one interview with the CIO. He asked what I knew about the company and discussed my background and goals for the future.

    Interview Questions

    • They were all pretty straight forward questions with nothing coming out of left field.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I worked as a contractor and there was no negotiation at that time.

    Negotiation

    This company was willing to step up and pay me what I wanted in salary and bonus but would not work with me on time off my first year. They expected me to go 1 year with zero time off and sick days but told me after 6 months they will let me borrow time off? They sent me the offer in writing and everything was what we discussed.
