    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ArcBest (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    It was a preliminary telephonic call by the company for initial screening. I was asked some basic pre-screening questions based on my resume and job profiling. The call went on for about 15-20 minutes.
