    Truck Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Serta Simmons Bedding (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Not upfront with details of compensation of job. Hiring process is through email (job offer) and not attractive at all. If I had no driving experience then I'd entertain the offer but the Hiring process through the net is not how you show your candidate that you're valued as a employee to the company. "its a two way street!"
