    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Saia LTL Freight (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the training operations supervisor at a University recruiting event. I was contacted approximately 2 months after meeting to come on site for an interview. When I got there he showed me where I would be primarily working, which would be on the shipping dock unloading/loading trucks and operating a forklift rotating shifts. We talked for about 10 - 15 minutes and he also asked if I would be okay to work in a non air-conditioned environment in the summer heat. We then went into the room for an interview where I was asked for the most part basic interview questions. Still waiting on a response back for second interview. It was a good experience for the most part. Seems to be a physically demanding job, however I am up to any challenge.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saia LTL Freight (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Online application & online personality test, had 2 interviews,background check and another interview. One of the first interviewers said I would be called the next day with the next steps. Received an email from 'Saia Management' indicating I was not selected for the role, but that they would keep me in mind for other opportunities. Very odd way to receive rejection, when all other indicators were positive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saia LTL Freight (Charlotte, NC) in June 2008.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone introduction/interview. A 1-1 interview with the direct manager and a 1-1 interview with his manager. Process took about 2 weeks. Most questions dealt with past experience in sales cycle, territory management and relationship building. Very few questions on situational selling, as my background and resume spoke very strongly in that regard.

    Negotiation

    Everything is negotiable, right? I was able to add to the salary and a extra week of vacation.
