    Interview

    I was given a phone interview, followed by a in person interview. A job offer was given a few days later. It came to my attention later on that anybody given an in person interview typically gets a job offer due to them having a position open year long

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Transport Corporation of America (Atlanta, GA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Mostly questions about problem solving and employee relations. The interview was mostly one on one with the manager. But, the head assistant sat in on the interview to provide the manager feedback on initial fit with the team and personality assessment.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Transport Corporation of America (Fort Wayne, IN) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was awesome. All individuals from the recruiter to the office manager at orientation to the trainig staff were totally knowledgeable and fuuly capable of handling all functions concerning the intake .Filling out the forms was simple and smooth. Classroom training was effective, on schedule, and interesting. I enjoyed my time there and wish them all the best.

    Interview Questions

    • Personally, my most difficult situation was that I had an overweight ticket that had not been taken care of by an previous employer which left me with an suspended liscense in the state of Indiana, which just happened to be where orientation was being held. They gave me the space to l;et me get that handled without interference or judgement and I am working here to this day. Most others would just have shown you the door.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Transport Corporation of America in July 2009.

    Interview

    The recruiter, Susan Paradise, was an absolute blast to talk with. If I had a question, I got an answere. The only REAL hick-up was that I was not informed that I would be required to go into Canada if freight warrented it. This should be something that is on their web site as well as brought up in first interview. I only hope that the actual driving experience and orientation goes as well as talking to Susan.

    Negotiation

    Really no negotiations. The pay scale is set. The running area is set. The only decision one has to make is whether he/she wants a job with their criteria.
