    Driver Business Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Process moves quickly, someone from office of opening will contact you and explain that someone from HR will call for a phone screening. HR does screening and quickly relays the information back to Recruiter or Division Manager within office. Time is set and the interview process takes about 3-5 hours with about 2-4 interviews. Questions are behavioral based and even do role playing scenarios in each interview. After being drained from answering all the questions, you may get an invite to go to lunch. After that you will be free to go, but as mentioned expect the process to be lengthy and thorough.

    Interview Questions
    • A role playing scenario will be presented usually in the form of working with someone who has a poor attitude, doesn't want to listen, or is just being difficult.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Simply take it or leave it because Schneider's budget "doesn't allow for it"

    Supply Chain Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    Hour phone interview and hour in-person interview at office. The managers interviewing me seems pretty unprofessional. The woman refused to answer any of my questions and directed her manager to do so. The entire time he was putting down his team saying some of them are "not so smart". I heard back a response fairly quickly because they were looking to hire someone asap. Overall, I found the experience extremely negative and this office seems to be a place where I would be unhappy to work at.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. I was told the interview would be behavioral based and it was not.   Answer Question

    I met with Schneider at a career fair at my university. We talked about the role and I handed over my resume. I received a call later that week to set up an initial phone interview, which led to another about 2 weeks after. The third one was about a month after my second. The offer came the next day. Very standard interview questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Schneider.

    Interview Details

    Schneider needs drivers and is very aggressive in their recruitment. They do a thorough background check, health, work history, DMV etc. There isnt much of a interview process its more of meeting paper/legal requirements at that point they will pretty much say or do anything to get you on as a driver.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Schneider trumped mileage, training pay, truck models etc so there wasnt much negotiating .Problem is after hire they didnt come through on promises.
