  1. Local Truck Driver Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Estes Express Lines (Auburn, WA) in Nov 2021

    Interview

    Immediately received a phone call five minutes after applying. Recruiter described the position, the benefits, the pay and answered almost all my questions. She scheduled an interview with the terminal manager later that week. Terminal manager described a different job than what recruiter told me (which wasn't surprising) and then discussed the type of work load and hours I'd be working. Asked what kind of experience trucking I had and assured me anything I wasn't experienced on (doubles mainly) that they would train me. Everything seemed good, we shook hands and gave me a "looking forward to having you." Two weeks went by with no calls or emails and I had to contact the recruiter to get answers. Manager denied my application and didn't even send out an email or give a reason except to the recruiter after pestering saying "Passed" despite the interview seemingly going well. Recruiter and I were both, bewildered. I have a spotless background and only a few unemployment marks on my ten year record. No clue. Unprofessional all around, in my opinion. Maybe I dodged a bullet?
    Interview

    Are you okay with slip seating? Can you drive both stick and autos? Are you okay with built in forward cameras? How much experience with doubles do you have? Can you perform physical labor? LTL? Can you meet ten stops within ten hours? Are you okay with about ten hours overtime weekly? You will need to be available some Saturdays, okay? Can you drive in ice and snow without issue? Are you okay with driving a 2015 model in 2022?
