    I worked at Con-way Freight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Con-way was a great place to work. The benefits and advancement opportunities were awesome. They allowed managers the freedom to make decision that impacted the business while providing support.

    Cons

    Over the years the size of corporate administration had grown. It seemed to be top heavy. This effects the bottom line (profit).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive efficiencies and growth. Take care of your most valuable asset, the people. Never stop trying to improve yourself and the people around you.

    Supply Chain Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Con-way Freight (Montgomery, AL).

    Interview

    I don't know how they do things now, but back in 2012 the interview process was quite intense. I had one phone and three on site interviews. The specific position I was applying for was Manager in Training. It's what everyone starts out at. 3 - 4 months of that you are promoted the actual position you applied for, which in my case was a Supply Chain Manager. Even though this is an entry level bachelor's degree position, you are going to want to be ready to recall solid work experiences that relate to you being in charge of a task; better yet, ones that involve you managing people well. Bring those referral letters!
