    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saia LTL Freight (Portland, OR) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Just met with a guy that asked if I wanted part-time or full-time said I would be driving a forklift and it was easy work. Nothing else will be explained to you you will have false hopes and then be hit in the head with a ton of bricks after you start your job
