    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide (Overland Park, KS) in April 2017.

    Interview

    YRC had a booth set up at my school's career fair so I spoke to them, didn't hear back for a month and a half - two months. They did a brief phone interview and then scheduled me for a 2 hour interview. Spoke to four people, 3 managers and the VP of pricing. 30 minutes each. Honestly all of them were really great people. They described the job and what's expected out of you day 1, no training. I thought my interview went really, really well. And then promptly did not hear ANYTHING back from them. I emailed all of them thanking them for the interview and even followed up again essentially asking if they had made a decision. They told me they would know within a week. Well, it's been about a month since the interview and I've heard nothing. So in my opinion they lack punctuality.

    Social Media Recruiting Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide (Overland Park, KS) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and then asked a friend of mine to follow up with the HR department, which he did.

    I received an invite for a panel (phone) interview. It felt like a "favor" interview as my referral was a co-worker of theirs with a title. We went about 45 minutes, with about 30 of that being focused on the job itself. No chance for follow-up questions from me, which tells me a lot about how they view candidates. To YRC, it's not a 2-party thing, it's all about them finding a body. After the interview, I followed up with Thank You notes, which went unreturned. Par for the course-- unprofessional. I never did get a yes/no, but after a month, I left them in the rear view mirror. By that point, I had no desire to work with/for them. Meanwhile, they post on Social Media about being all about their employees, about the great culture, about how they want to be an employer of choice.

    My impression of their HR team was that they were disengaged, most likely underqualified, and possibly stretched too thin. After all, we started the call with hearing about all the stress of constant change, managerial changes, reorganizations, and yes-- how they were below market in terms of compensation. Not very flattering.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide.

    Interview

    Initially interviewed with mamager. No talent in interviewing, read off script. Kind of embarrassed for her to be honest. Not within her skill set. Then her manager who also lacks social skills talks to you. I'm guessing most of their time is,spent under a rock.bj

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YRC Worldwide (Cheektowaga, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    My interview was very brief, no longer than 5 or 10 minutes. I was asked very basic questions, none that were specifically related to the position I was interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. I didn't receive a phone call from YRC, I received a call from the temp agency (you are hired as a temporary employee to start and after 3-6 months you are evaluated for a full time position if there is one available.) Everyone starts at $11.50/hour, there is no negotiation.
