    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at YRC Freight in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty simple. Nothing out the ordinary. Although it was a phone interview. Made a strong impression vs a weak candidate pool. Passed my second interview with flying colors and got selected.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was interviewed and offered by the Denver terminal in Aurora. But was offered to stay in Dallas to avoid the relocation at the last minute and accepted that option.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Albuquerque, NM) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Sat down with Distribution Manager. He was pleasant. He asked me a lot of questions about previous employers. Mostly he wanted to know how I handled lazy employees. I told him I would write them up and then fire them after giving them every chance I could. Of course, I found out afterwards that I would be supervising teamsters and that their job security was second to none. At worst they were given a week of payed time off.

    Dock Worker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montgomery, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Montgomery, NY).

    Interview

    I applied on-line on the website for the position of Dock Worker last year and even called in to the operations manager to inquire on the status of my application. He seemed to be interested and said he would pushed my application threw their HQ in Kansas. When I was interviewed he had a phone conference at the same time which was actually rude and inconsiderate since I was supposed to be interviewed at that time it was scheduled. When he said I was hired, the receptionist informed me that I was supposed to get an a drug test and where I needed to go for that. I never received an info and kept calling about 4 times to find out what was going on. When I looked a on the website again, the position was not listed strangely enough. A few months later I saw it again and applied once more in the fall this time only getting a phone interview, asked questions and then never heard anything ever again for the second time.
