Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL
I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Con-way Freight (Montgomery, AL)
I don't know how they do things now, but back in 2012 the interview process was quite intense. I had one phone and three on site interviews. The specific position I was applying for was Manager in Training. It's what everyone starts out at. 3 - 4 months of that you are promoted the actual position you applied for, which in my case was a Supply Chain Manager. Even though this is an entry level bachelor's degree position, you are going to want to be ready to recall solid work experiences that relate to you being in charge of a task; better yet, ones that involve you managing people well. Bring those referral letters!
- Q: Talk about a time that you had to manage people.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Con-way Freight
It was pretty easy interview. In and out, really. I was recommended so that probably speeded the process. Classic questions about yourself, why are you interested in the company and the position and some randomly behavioral questions.
- Tell me about a time you had to confront a coworker.

Online application submission, requires 10 years of job history. They are very serious about not hiring your if you lie and leave out any employment information. Two-part interview, first with HR personnel then with the terminal manager. Then comes the job offer and they do an extensive background check which takes about two weeks.

Generic questions about management and working with people. Hiring process was slow and long due to HR not being the best. Would like to see a quicker turn around good or bad.

Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Con-way Freight in Sept 2015
Recruiter was friendly and asked basic questions. Unfortunately, she was new to the company and unable to answer my questions about the company or position thoroughly. In the end, the recruiter emailed me two days after my interview and said they were no longer filling the position. In my opinion this should have been a call with more explanation.
- Why are you leaving your current employer; what attracted you to Con-way and this position; what is something you need to work on; what would you bring to this role?

Lots of questions regarding different scenario, kind of unorganized but on top of it, I felt like I used to many situations that had to do with my current job!!!!! I get very nervous at interview face to face so I stumbled a few times
- Name a crime when you had to take intitative and control the situation

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Con-way Freight (Savannah, GA) in Aug 2015
They called back immediately to set up an over the phone interview with a recruiter. The next step was a face to face at the local terminal. The site manager was really nice and very hospitable. Afterwards they walked me through and gave me a tour of the facility. I was really impressed with the professionalism and morale of the employees. Everyone was friendly.
- What kind of experience do you have?

Applied online and got a call the next week. I went in and met with manager. Got called for a second interview the following week, this time with the operation manager and a freight operation supervisor. Both interviews went good. The managers were easy to talk to you.
