    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Calavo Growers (Swedesboro, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with Transportation Manager and I was offered the position by the end of the call. Manager asked me a few question to gauge my knowledge on dispatching and transportation. Very casual conversation, no pressure type of interview. I could tell he was just trying to get a feel for what experience I did have without making me feel uncomfortable.
