Interviewing is becoming an obstacle course

Listen here. Aired on Marketplace.

Nobody wants to make a bad hire, and some companies are going to great lengths to ensure that doesn’t happen. You could say it’s all good – who wants to end up in the wrong job? But candidates are asked to jump through multiple hoops before they even get to the first phone interview, and not even getting a ‘thanks, but no thanks’ afterwards. This piece looks at the drawn-out interview process and the effects on candidates and companies.

And this piece, which aired on the Marketplace Morning Report, is all about traffic, truckers, and what commercial vehicle owners are doing to keep their insurance premiums down as the industry is hit with millions of dollars in claims.
