    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Springdale, AR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at P.A.M. Transportation (Springdale, AR).

    Interview

    First there was an initial phone screening. Then after passing that requirement, an actual interview was scheduled. Multiple essay questions were sent to me to complete beforehand.After arriving on site, I really got the impression the job was already filled before even posting it. People were rude and did not smile back. Complete waste of time. They did not go over what the job entails until I asked. The interview didn't even consist of actual questions. "Favorite class in college, Least Favorite" end of interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at P.A.M. Transportation.

    Interview

    Very laid back and easy interview. After applying online they will invite you into the office for an inperson interview. Arrive early as parking can be hard to find. Once you walk into the office the receptionist will have you fill out a decision making test while waiting for the interviewer. Once the interviewer arrives he will take you up to his office and ask you a couple of easy questions.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tontitown, AR

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at P.A.M. Transportation (Tontitown, AR) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was totally unorganized with every manager in operations in the room. It was semi comical. There was one manager that was the alpha male that fought for the attention over the rest of the group. There was no set interview structure.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at P.A.M. Transportation (Tontitown, AR) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back quickly the same day from HR recruiter (Mr. Majors) to ask me when I was available. We met at PAM Headquarters and he asked a few basic questions. He almost immediately started telling me about other positions I didn't apply for (I guess they try to bait and switch applicants to be in sales even when they weren't applying for that). Interview was pretty easy and laid back and at the end he said I should hear back in 3 or 4 business days. Well I didn't hear anything for a week or two so I tried to follow up. Majors never replied. This wasn't the first time he and the HR department stopped communicating in the middle of one of my applications. Will never apply there again. He wasted my time. If PAM is a "family" like it was described to me, it sure didn't feel like it.

    Interview

    Sent resume and received email following day to set up interview. Went in to do interview asked the questions and answers truthfully gave profile about what I do now and what I've done, HR talked a good game but couldn't back it up, gave me all the perks and was speaking with me like I had the job, HR stated would hear back by end of week. Couple days passed heard back to set up second interview with director and another person, felt that the interview went really well; both stated they enjoyed Interviewing with me and if I did not hear anything in a couple days to contact HR next day HR sent email stating interview went well and should have an update by Thursday, Thursday rolled around didn't hear anything via phone or email, neither the following Friday or Monday or Tuesday sent email to check status never heard back, called on 1-14-15 left voice mail still nothing, chalked it up as they hired someone else, lack of professionalism to not let someone know they did not get the job, ignore emails and calls was rude of that HR , vowed to never apply for P.A.M again.
