    OTR Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Express (Nashville, TN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Basically asked about my experience in driving trucks either over the road or locally. They asked if I drove for the military and I stated that I had. They reviewed my background and motor vehicle record and had asked if I had any questions. It was a fairly simple process and interview that was conducted over the phone. The recruiter was nice and friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Western Express (Nashville, TN) in April 2019.

    Interview

    It was a little packed and unorganized everyone was doing some of everything, and the hotel rooms was cheap an crowded. Didn’t really have any privacy. I also didn’t like the fact they kept switching up your roommate every other day.

    OTR Truck Driver Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Western Express.

    Interview

    Worked with recruiter over the phone. Recruiters lie, that is what they are paid to do! You will find this out very quickly during orientation! Recruiter was friendly and helpful. One word of advice, get them to send you a letter or email stating what your pay (cents per mile + Per Diem) will be after orientation & training. GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING - for legal reasons that will arise later on!

    The interview went good, but they conflicted with the Driver's Managers. My Recruiter told me there would be no problem getting me home for Home time AND Military Duty, but my Driver's Manager has made me miss two months of Duty since I've been here.

    Interview

    Not really an interview since they hire everybody. Fill out application and they call you to hire you. Then you go to an unpaid orientation for a few days. All they care about is reducing fuel consumption, when there is alot of other things they are doing wrong to lose money. Then you start making minimum wage like checks.
