    Local Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Leighton Contractors in January 2014.

    Interview

    No felonies pass a drug test valid cdl you;re hired. They don't really do a thorough interview you can tell they really need drivers. And they lie in the beginning telling you if you work hard then you could possibly earn a raise. Which I never saw anyone accomplish my time there. Just wasn't enough money for me. If 800 a week after taxes is enough for you then this is your company easy work.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or serous questions they just need drivers.   2 Answers

    Work monday through and make like 800 a week.
