    Company Driver Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    I wouldn't call it an interview, it's more like a cattle call. They send you to Springfield, MO, put u in their hotel for a week. You have a week to do physical, drug test, interview, computer training. I finished all in one day but many had issues with drug tests and we're sent home. The interview was a guy looking at my history on a computer and asking about things on my record, two DUI, but dismissed and older than seven years. I expressed remorse and told him I didn't drink anymore and he printed me a name tag and called the next dude in. There is no interview, if u have 10 years work history or, clean driving record within 7 years you will be hired.

    It seemed very difficult to get a hold of the recruiter. More than normal. Got a bad feeling. Didn't get this elsewhere.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prime (Springfield, MO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It's intense and you must have all your ducks in a row you were there for 7 days and they keep keep you very busy during the whole process. Be ready to share a room with a stranger. The Simulator part of the training seemed very minimal to Me you will learn just enough to get off on to the truck and that's where you will actually learn the whole process

    Broker Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Prime in February 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy process and not fluid at all. Start to finish was about 4 months. Human Resources was very last minute on things and did not communicate with supervisors in regards to start date or with interviewee. There was a phone interview that was mostly behavioral in nature, then an in person interview with a panel of two managers and HR, then a second interview with the senior management. Finally a job offer about three weeks later. Then the drug test and background checks. I started approximately 6 weeks after the job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Prime (Springfield, MO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Prime helped me get my cdl, they have a really good school, you get a room and your meals are covered by prime. You do have to pay them back, but it's worth every penny to get your cdl through Prime, the cost is around 3,333 bucks and they slowly take out of your checks. Schools will cost up to 10,000 dollars and your not getting a job also, like you do with Prime. The owner is a no sugar coating it guy, at 70 years young, he has built himself a nice company and really makes you feel like you come first, but don't be stupid out on the road. I left Prime because they lost a job bid on a dedicated route, and now I make less money and work harder. It sucks, I should have stayed with prime, now I'm paying the price.
