    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Kansas City, MO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Last from July 15 thru mid November. I was a "finalist" after 4 interviews. I had other offers pending, they took an additional month after I was a finalist to send form notice I was not chosen. They would not return phone calls or emails. Very unprofessional behavior from District and Regional Sales Managers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was very in depth. The company takes good measure to hire the right people. Once your in, its a great opportunity. There was a 3 stage process. Phone interview, one on one interview and a panel interview. I met with the Vice President of the division, the Regional Manager and District Manager. Prior to the panel interview I did a ride along with one sales representative to get a good perspective of what the responsibilities include. The company does a background check and drug test. The do follow up with your references.
