    Dock Worker/Dock Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carlisle, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at YRC Freight (Carlisle, PA (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I initially applied to the Dock Worker full-time position at the end of January 2014 and did not receive a call for an interview for the position until near the end of February 2014. I went to the Carlisle, PA terminal for the Dock Worker interview on 2/24/14 and it was very simple and straightforward with the person basically just telling me about the position and no behavioral-type questions. The interviewer saw my college degree and asked if I was interested in management/supervisor role and I said yes and on my way home YRC called me to come in that same week on 2/26/14 to interview for Dock Supervisor. I accepted, came in two days later, and interviewed with two Operations Managers who went over the position, asked me "some" behavioral questions, but nothing really hard, and then they answered my questions I had about the position itself. For the answers I gave to their questions, they told me to answer them either with a real past experience or how I would handle the situation if I never had a real experience with the question. Then, once I completed both of these two interviews I waited quite a while (a little over a month) until I finally received a job offer of Dock Supervisor on 4/3/14 via email from YRC Freight. I was essentially over-qualified for just Dock Worker and was told that I would be hired for Operations Trainee to train me for a supervisor position, but much to my surprise they offered me Dock Supervisor to start in and move up from there. I was happy about it and definitely accepted it! It definitely pays to be persistent and keep in touch with them about the position you applied to while at the same time persevering and being patient. Overall, they're pretty easy to get into as long as you're qualified for the position and such. I have not started this position yet, but I know I will like it!

    Interview Questions

    • None really that I can remember - the entire interview and hiring process was quite simple.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate anything since there was no room for negotiation for this position. They tell you what you start at and what your benefits are after 30 days and that's it. They do, however, answer any and all questions you have, such as if there is a sign-on bonus, but they don't.
