    I worked at Interstate Bakeries full-time (More than 10 years)


    Good pay for the work that you did, when you were done with your route you could get off early.


    Have to work on rainy days and in the bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Need to train the new works better, so they stay on and do not quit.

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Texarkana, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Interstate Bakeries (Texarkana, TX) in June 2009.


    IBC's Route Sales Representative position was published with an online job website. I delivered my resume in person to the bakery sales business in front of the IBC warehouse. I received a phone request for an in person interview the next day. I researched the company website for a basic understanding of IBC company history and baked goods products. I researched an online job website for the same job position in different cities. This game me a comprehensive understanding of job requirements before the interview. The Manager and Supervisor were friendly and receptive to my visit. I explained that I researched the position. I knew of the twelve-hour labor job requirements. The job in question did require the ability to drive manual transmission, which was beyond my personal experience. They were very professional and approachable throughout the entire process. I thanked them for their time. I sent a thank you letter and asked that my resume be kept for future consideration.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job requires experience driving a manual transmission vehicle with enough confidence to manage city traffic conditions. I have experience with automatic transmission passenger vehicles at this time.
