    Terminal Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Estes Express (Baltimore, MD (US)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Met with Office Supervisor. Initially a nice interview. Sounded promising at first. Then met with Terminal Manager. Seemed genuine and sincere. Although I held off on asking him questions about how lateral transfers worked. Because my initial job interview I informed the office supervisor I was over-qualified for this position.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly questions about customer service and duties I performed in another top-of the line freight company.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Verify everything you discussed with the office supervisor with the Terminal Manager. If I would have taken that simple step, I would have turned down the job as I was over qualified for Appt Clerk. I found out after the current OSD Clerk was promoted to dock Supervisor, that protocol called for more interviews and you could not just change sheets for a non-management job in the same department. First company I ever worked for where you had to inverview for transferring from a non-management job to a non-management job in the same department. Estes decided to hire from the outside and as of the date of this review, that person has also left the company.
