    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Kansas City, MO (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Last from July 15 thru mid November. I was a "finalist" after 4 interviews. I had other offers pending, they took an additional month after I was a finalist to send form notice I was not chosen. They would not return phone calls or emails. Very unprofessional behavior from District and Regional Sales Managers.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Overland Park, KS (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    A technical phone interview was conducted to ask questions on Java, Javascript and Spring framework. The hire manager would introduce himself and asked some general questions and projects done in the past and technologies used. Then he would introduce the rest of technical interviewers and get you ready to answer their questions. Those interviewers are pretty nice and respectful. They won't put any pressure on you if you can't answer it. Most of those questions are basis, but some of them are hard.

    ASD CLERK Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toledo, OH (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Toledo, OH (US)).

    Interview

    Submitted resume and filled out online application. Was contacted by email and provided with more details about the job and asked to reply if able to commit to those requirements- for example working on-call and evening shifts. Afterward was contacted by HR to fill out forms. Was invited to office for an interview (make sure you can find it's location) and a skills test. The office is very casual attire. I think nice jeans or khakis and appropriate shirt like a polo would be fine for the interview. The computerized skills test looked for your typing speed & accuracy and attention to detail in numbers. I didn't reach the required typing speed, but was still hired. After the skills test, met with office manager and she showed on her computer what the work I would be doing looks like. Was asked if wanted to continue with job offer. They then gave forms to fill out and had to do a drug screening test at a medical office in town (yuck! - I don't like public restrooms used by both male and female for urine testing- disgusting). After submitting online forms to HR, received details about attending a paid 3~week training session. Training session seemed so difficult to learn. It took a long time to stop feeling bad and wondering if I was entering bols correctly. If you meet their production goals after the probationary period, then they hire you.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was rather painless if you had all your ducks in a row, you have to have all endorsements: hazmat, doubles,tanker plus at leastt 1yr VERIFIABLE experience... they set up a phone interview to ask you to tell them about yourself as a person, to basically find out if you are competent and everything else is basically done through email, your W-4, and direct deposit and background consent paperwork...

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Charlotte, NC (US)).

    Interview

    The "interview" would be better described as a conversation covering my skills/experience as they related to the position. The conversation was between myself and the Terminal Operations Manger. From the time I was greeted by the receptionist to when I returned my visitor's badge was approximately 2 hours. Roughly 3 days later, I was extended an offer contingent upon a successfull drug and background check.
