Driver manager interview questions shared by candidates
For the Truck Driver Manager job some of the questions are typical, BUT most are designed to probe your ability to handle a fast paced job AND be reasonably organized. So, "what other jobs have you had that were fast paced and hectic? How do you handle a fast paced environment? Are you organized?" Etc. The interviewer compared the job to an air traffic controller.
I recommend having brief answers that will illustrate your ability to handle this type of job. I was a little vague on my answers and well...
this is not necessarily a question but it was more of a request that if I take the sales position to please give me or set me up with a direct manager who was older than me this way they could teach me more about the company, the basics and also just about life because they have been on this earth longer than I have so what that means to me is that a lot of people look to take short cuts with things,,even simple,things. I like to learn from a more, experienced person who can show me many different reasons and outcomes so that I can choose to take a better road and not cut corners. that's basically how I was brought up in the car business at the age of 19 and it has been a proven track record for me
the thing that sticks out most in my head was question number 1 why do you want to drive I had my explanation we went back and forth and then we came to the conclusion of I would be better off in a sales environment. The second question that was asked of me was to sell them a car, since I have a car background of over 8 years. I had asked what the scenario was, the manager explained that he could get the same vehicle 2000 dollars cheaper from a different place but the question was why would I want to buy from you. so I naturally gave my first response on how I would sell anything, within 6 to 7 seconds he clapped his hands and said to stop and that I had nailed the question right on the head. I also had a lot of questions for the two people who interviewed me because this was a total curveball and was not expecting this so I ask my questions and really explained what I was about and what my goals were as a person and for this company and that's why I got hired with no beverage experience, it is because I am very good at all other aspects of communication and sales
